Are you considering a move, and want to relocate from NY to FL? You need experts by your side to guide you through the process. Michele Barone Homes is here to help you identify the right city, neighborhood and home for your family.

Here are the steps to take to relocate from NY to FL:

Step 1: Make a list of all of the things you love about your current home in NY.

Maybe it’s that you have a Target and your favorite coffee shop across the street, or that you love being in a close-knit community full of families your age.

Step 2: Write down your must-have and like-to-have lists for moving to Florida.

Have you always wanted a pool, and a community with sidewalks good for walks or running? Do you want to be within a certain driving distance to the beach? Are the ratings of area schools important? Start with what is a non-negotiable and prioritize it down to those things you would like, but aren’t deal breakers.

Step 3: Think about the things you can not change.

Some things are out of our control. For example, if you like big shopping malls, The Florida Keys may be too remote for you. If being close to the beach is on your must-have list, you need to look at areas near the cost. Into surfing? If you need big waves, you’ll want to look at the East coast as the West coast Gulf waters are more still. Kids already left home? You can open your choices up to an area without an A-rated school to get more house for your budget. Want more acreage so you can have a chicken coop, become a bee keeper or plant a garden? Not all gated communities are zoned for these types of things, so you might be better off in an area that has less HOA communities, and instead has larger plots of land.

Step 4: If you decide on a move to Southeast Florida or Eastern Florida, contact Michele Barone Homes.

Once we get to know you, we can help determine which neighborhood in Palm Beach County, Martin County, Broward County, or St. Lucie County will best fit your lifestyle and budget. We will then begin to narrow down specific neighborhoods and help you find a community of like-minded people that best fits your dream home and lifestyle.

Step 5: Once we narrow it down to a few neighborhoods that you love that are within your budget, we will find the perfect home for you and your family.

In the Southeast and Eastern Florida markets, your best shot at finding the perfect home for you is to have Michele Barone and her team on your side. Get ready to reserve that moving truck!

Step 6: Once you move in, we’re still here with you.

Once you get settled in, you are going to need recommendations for dentists, contractors, hair stylists, coffee shops, and of course that perfect NY bagel. We will be your go-to friend to find those comforts of home and make sure your relocation from NY to FL is a positive experience.
