It’s all great news for our local economy and also for the greater Fort Myers areas as well. People moving to south florida are doing so for the climate, natural beauty, water access, and safety that our areas offer. You generally see people move away from high tax states into lower tax states like the 600,000 New Yorker’s that have moved to Florida over the last decade. The Sunshine state also offers no income or personal property taxes. Florida now offers a new draw for these transplants……affordable home prices!
After 6 long years of bad news about our area its great to see national articles with favorable comments!.
