You may wonder what in the world is a Snowbird? A Snowbird as they are affectionately called in Florida is a part-time resident who spends part of the year here in Florida and the other part in their home state. Most Snowbirds in The Villages vacation 3-6 months out of the year any time between November and May of each year.  

Enjoying status as a Cape Coral or North Port Snowbird certainly has its advantages. As a snowbird you enjoy the beautiful and sunny warm Florida weather, beaches and the many activities geared for Baby Boomers of all ages. You are able to avoid the cold winter conditions in many states such as Massachusetts, New York, Illinois and Ohio.

With the current economic climate there are many affordable options for purchasing a vacation home in Florida. It is possible to purchase a vacation home for as little as $80,000 in Sarasota, Charlotte or Lee Counties in Florida otherwise known as “SW Florida”. At this price point, many can realize the dream of having a vacation home in Florida. Simply checking out the Charlotte County Area MLS or the Sarasota County MLS opens up many affordable options from condos, homes and gated 50 plus subdivisions.

If the snow is falling, it is cold outside and you are bothered by your arthritis, now may be the perfect time to consider becoming a Snowbird.
