HELPING PEOPLE 

MAKE LIFESTYLE MOVES

Historically, the number one reason people have moved to another state is for work. Although most people only make an inter-state move when a job is already lined up and secured, this figure also includes people moving in hopes that they’ll find better employment prospects once they arrive. 

After the housing crises of 2007, housing insecurity has increased which has influenced local residents to relocate to an area with a lower cost of living.  Natural disasters, a pandemic, and deciding to retire have contributed to the reason some decide to relocate for an out of state move.  

Location and community are important when considering a relocation move.  Amenities such as healthcare facilities, parks, outdoor dining, schools are all priorities when it comes to the quality of life.

 

CC provides a customized strategy based on the client's priorities, goals, and dreams.  Her research strategy extends to the four regions of the country, state by state, and the top community based on the client's need.  Schools, hospitals, walking communities, and health initiatives are just some of the amenities that are considered when relocating.

COMMUNITY

There are thousands of communities across the country. How do you find the one that’s right for you? Location is the first thing to consider. Once you choose the region you want to live in, you can narrow your search options further.  I would be happy to do that for you.    

To some degree, the location you choose dictates the price range. So, this is something to consider. If Florida is on your list of potential destinations, then you’re in luck. Because, in this case, it pays to go where the crowd is.

In a recent study, 73% percent of our subscribers listed the southeast as a top area of interest.

Luxury communities in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia have been multiplying at a rapid rate over the last few years. And, where there’s ample supply, there’s ample demand.

If you know you want to be in the southeast, that’s great. But, take it a step further. Are you looking for a mountain lifestyle, or do you want to settle into the coast? How close to the city do you need to be? Do you need easy access to the water?

As we all know, retirees flock to Florida every year. Subsequently, Florida luxury communities are abundant. Price points are competitive. And, communities strive to stand out by offering exceedingly more luxurious amenities. These reasons, and others, make exploring Florida luxury communities an ideal choice.

If you’re considering the southeast, just north of Florida, you’re not alone.

If you’re looking for something a touch more exotic, the Caribbean is full of luxury communities at price-points that may surprise you. The Dominican Republic is becoming one of the hottest international destinations for that reason. The Bahamas, Costa Rica, the Riviera Maya, and Panama continue to host top luxury communities.
