Undoubtedly, one of the joys of living in Florida is the lifestyle. Sunny days and outdoor recreation are a perfect pair, and a big part of why Dream Finders Homes loves building homes in Northeast Florida. Offering unsurpassed quality, uncompromising value, and an extraordinary level of personalization, along with the most desirable locations, our Jacksonville communities are sure to fit your lifestyle and budget.
Should You Move to Florida?
As previously mentioned, the weather is a big draw for those considering a move to Florida. When 200+ sunny days are attached to some of the world’s best beaches and an endless supply of water (the Atlantic Ocean, and the Gulf of Mexico, not to mention the innumerable lakes, bays, and rivers), well, it’s all too obvious why people love living in the Sunshine State.
So, is Florida right for you? Here are some things (other than the climate) to consider. While the big cities inevitably have a higher cost of living, the vast majority of Florida is very affordable. Goods and services, healthcare, and housing all fall below the national average. Jobs are plentiful in various fields — aviation, financial services, information technology, manufacturing, and distribution as well as tourism. There’s also no state income tax, just sales and property taxes.
If steering clear of the tourist scene is part of your consideration, Northeast Florida is a great option. Jacksonville is the most populous city in Florida, so there is demographic and cultural diversity. But there is still plenty of land and a lower cost of living. So it’s easy to afford a home and to make new friends!
There are so many great suburban towns near Jacksonville. One of the most livable is Yulee, Florida, in Nassau County. Its 128 square miles, lying between Interstate 95 on the west and the Intracoastal Waterway on the east, are centered along Florida A1A. Talk about convenience!
With a population of 13,346, Yulee is growing as it attracts young adults and people looking to start a family. Its rural, small-town charm is accentuated by highly-rated schools and low crime rates. It offers proximity to the beaches and the major roads connecting to Jacksonville to the south and Georgia to the north, while also giving access to the White Oak Conservation Center, one of the world’s premier wildlife breeding, research, and training facilities amidst 6,800 acres of forest and wetlands. Yulee truly has something for everyone.
