It is no surprise that the arrival of COVID-19 has put a pinch on many Americans’ wallets, as well as being a catalyst for moves driven by health or economic realities.

The report reveals that 15% of all moves occurring between the months of January and July in 2020 were directly attributed to pandemic-related pressures.

sunshine state especially in this pandemic time are …

Benefits on Tax

Florida has no state income tax, which means Social Security retirement benefits, pension income and income from an IRA or a 401(k) are all untaxed.

According to what i have observed Snowy states makes life more harder, can not do much family fun in winter time

The Sunshine state is always warm.

The answer I got the most from New Yorkers is “weather”. Also, I believe that a factor is distance.

WPB is only a couple of hours of direct flight from NY, so for many NY going back and forth and spending part of the year still in NYC, WPB is much more convenient than, say, Arizona. Weather supports fun lifestyle .365 days summer.
