    1. You Need a Little Heat

    If you live anywhere north of the Florida line, chances are you experience a chill in the air that warrants more than a light jacket during any given winter.  Head further north and the ground-covered snow and ice-packed windshields make getting to any destination a challenge.  If you’re ready for beautiful year-round weather, the warming rays of the Florida sun, and an absence of the muck and cold of the snow, Southwest Florida is your winning destination.

    2. You Love Going to the Beach

    Collecting seashells, walking along the shore of a white sandy beach, taking in the vitamin D found in the sun’s rays, and listening to the waves gently rolling in from the Gulf of Mexico are all ingredients to a relaxing day in the Florida sun.  Of course, boating, fishing, beach volleyball, kayaking, and many other outdoor activities can make for a lively afternoon on the award-winning beaches found in our Sunshine State.  If you love going to the beach, a home in Naples, FL, Sarasota, FL, Fort Myers Beach, FL, Estero, FL, and many other cities is the perfect place to enjoy all of the benefits of living by the water.


    3. You Are Constantly Asking What Your Out-of-Town Friends Are Doing

    When you watch as your neighbors start packing up their belongings and giving in to the allure of Southwest Florida, you may find yourself wondering in what they're doing when they get there.

    Residents of Southwest Florida enjoy watching plays, listening to music, or admiring beautiful artwork in the many cultural attractions in our area. Thousands of arts and culture events are scheduled every year and most of them are complimentary, so you can enjoy the sights and sounds of local, regional, and national artists and musicians year round.

    If you are constantly thinking about what your friends are up to in the Sunshine State, then a trip to our area is just what you need to experience these activities for yourself.

    Maybe it’s the mouthwatering cuisine from top chefs or the boutique shops and popular shopping destinations found in our favorite location, but if you found yourself delightfully lost in the splendor of Southwest Florida without a thought of leaving, it may be time to find your place in our paradise.

    We’ve met many visitors that have spent some time in Florida year after year and then decided that they would rather purchase a home than just visit sporadically.  If you long to come back to Florida upon your return to your northern home, then you may want to consider choosing among the homes in Southwest Florida real estate.
