Top 3 Reasons Moving to Florida is Smarter Than Ever
Why does purchasing a home in Florida make more sense now than it ever has? Find out here the reasons why.
Everyone wants to head to Florida! We’re all charmed by its tropical paradise, where every day is full of fun. “Now more than ever is the best time to purchase a home in Florida, with its lucrative economy and homebuying market.” said Heather Thompson of iStar Naples Reserve. So why wait at all when you can do it now? When considering the benefits of moving to Florida, consider these financial benefits.
1. Lower Taxes
Last year, Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, in the interest of granting individuals and businesses some financial relief. What became evident was that this came at a cost: those filing taxes were unable to declare personal exemptions, and found that itemizing deductions didn’t pay off as well as they used to. Add in mandatory state tax that many states require their residents to pay, and taxpayers were feeling the financial heat. For many people in New York, Connecticut, and Illinois, they sought out sunny Florida, with its lack of state tax and special discounts for those who declare their homestead residence in the state!
2. Health and Wellness Benefits
Florida is practically made to spend outside. From white sand beaches with the ocean gently splashing onto the shore, to forests with rivers to paddle canoes on and trails to hike, it’s hard to find a reason to spend time indoors! No matter what outdoor activity that you like to do, you can find it in Florida! Getting outside so much has advantages for your health, too. You’ll find that as you get moving and get outside, you’ll feel more active and energetic.
3. Lifestyle Focused Communities
Naples’ creative and artistic lifestyle has fostered an atmosphere that’s warm, friendly, and accommodating. This benefits the residents of the area in many ways, including neighborhoods that offer plenty of amenities and services. Many of these amenities, and the communities themselves, are designed around taking advantage of Florida’s great weather. From lounge chairs by the poolside to the hottest water toys like jetpacks and kayaks, you’re set up to spend the day in the sun, especially when you’re at Naples Reserve! This energetic Naples community has a one of the lowest HOA dues, while offering all kinds of amenities and services. How many people can say that they pay such a small amount while getting to enjoy a gated community, 22 interconnected lakes, and a tennis center? And don’t forget about the volleyball and tennis courts, dog park, and fully equipped Island Club that features a high-end Fitness Center, an on-site café and bar, and a resort style pool complete with a waterfall? Low key, but upscale – that’s Naples Reserve.
A best-selling South Naples community, Naples Reserve offers 18 fully decorated models available for viewing, built by Southwest Florida’s premier homebuilders, including Ashton Woods, D.R.

Here is where lakes provide prime opportunities for using the community’s Hydrobikes, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, and scenic vistas. The community’s centerpiece 125-acre Eagle Lake features a large tiki hut on destination Kontiki Island and also offers a mile-long stretch of lakefront nestled against the Picayune Strand State Forest, a 76,000-acre state park with protected pinelands, marshes and abundant wildlife. Its distance to Naples puts residents close to some of the best things that the area can offer, such as golfing on the finest golf courses, shopping down Third Street South, and watching the water lap the shores of the Gulf of Mexico.
