What to consider in a place to live
If sunshine and beaches are what you’re after, Florida has plenty to offer. Yet it takes some thought to figure out which part of the state is best for you. Along with subjective factors like climate and proximity to family, you’ll want to consider more objective traits like affordability, culture, job market, safety and education. It’s even important to look at how much a city is growing.
- Affordability: housing expenses and the cost of living in each city compared to income
- Culture: look at well-being rankings for each community. In addition consider how each city compares in terms of activities, events, restaurants and nightlife
- Job market: Using data from the Census Bureau, calculate each city’s unemployment rate and considered commute times
- Safety & Educational Attainment can also be factors
