People give all kinds of reasons for moving to Florida from the great weather and beautiful beaches to job opportunities and abundant golfing.

 

But I like to dig a little deeper and let buyers know why Northeast Florida specifically is hands-down the best place to live in the Sunshine State.

 

 1.) Our price points are excellent by comparison. The Jacksonville metropolitan area (Duval, Baker, Clay, Nassau and St. Johns counties) is known for price points that are much better than other parts of the state, making this a really affordable option for budget-minded buyers looking to enjoy living in Florida.

 

2.) We have fewer storms than many parts of Florida. Thanks to our unique geography, Northeast Florida is a little less hurricane-prone than most other parts of the state (and even many parts of the Carolinas). Nevertheless, you will want to seek out a home that meets Florida’s strict building codes in case of a storm. Also, strongly consider getting flood insurance if you buy in a flood zone.
