NY to FL

Jump to last reply

I have seen other threads about this topic and I am sure this has been discussed a ton on the forum, but I wanted to gather some information to help in my situation.

We are looking to move to the west coast of florida and are narrowing it down to the areas between Sarasota and Cape Coral. We are willing to expand our market for the right area. What's the right area for us? Low crime and higher income areas with great schools. Coming from a great low crime area with NY blue ribbon schools. I spent the last week visiting and have grown frustrated "wondering aimlessly" trying to get to know certain areas. It seems the realtors I spoke with conflict in information as they want to sell us a home in "their area" so "their area" is the best. LOL We are looking to make the move once and once only. Relocating with 12 and 8 year old boys is going to be tough on them so we need to make sure we do our due diligence and research the heck out of this a choose wisely. We will be visiting again in 5 weeks so would love some direction.

Any guidance and insight on particular areas to research would be much appreciated. Thanks for reading!
