Extremely helpful - thank you. I've always been under the impression that Florida was a more affordable place to live in regards to buying a home (especially compared to Hawaii and Auckland, for example. Both places I've lived / live). I don't know about Florida's cost of living other than there is no state income tax? But the initial appeal is the accessibility to wonderful destinations like Bahamas, BVIs, USVI (we are bluewater cruisers, but land locked for now), cost of living (so I thought), warm(er) weather. Hence, my initial research on Florida as a possible next destination to live. Maybe not??
Thanks again for your input - I really appreciate it. It's really very helpful. :-)
