Florida Makes Economic Sense
The USA is always a popular destination for people from the UK because the language and culture are an easy match, and you can rely on a strong economic climate. Florida is a world leader when it comes to tourism, but construction, banking and healthcare research are also growth areas. One major advantage for Brits is the absence of any personal income tax, which makes it a great place to start a new business.
Beautiful Floridean Landscapes
Florida is the only US state to border the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. The stunning natural landscape includes the wetlands and swamps of the Everglades National Park, beautiful beaches around the peninsula, and numerous lakes and waterways such as the large freshwater Lake Okeechobee and the winding Kissimmee River.
Numerous Florida Attractions
The problem with the range of Florida’s attractions is knowing what to do first. The state caters for pretty much every taste, from theme parks, to wildlife parks, to world famous golf courses and alligator safaris, this isn’t somewhere you’re likely to get bored!
Buying Property in Florida
The real estate market in Florida is consistently attractive because of the economic stability of the state. The employment figures are strong which drives demand in the property market and there are plenty of new construction developments across the state. The average cost of buying a home in Florida is $200,000 although prices vary by county.
Schools in Florida
The great news is that there are numerous public, private, and religious schools to choose from for your children’s education in Florida.The website GreatSchools.Org can help you in your search for the best options in your area, but these schools all have great reviews:
- West Shore Junior – Senior High School
- Ransom Everglades School
- International Studies Charter High School
- Cypress Bay High School
- Suncoast Community High School
- Edgewood Junior/Senior High School
The University of Florida is the largest in the USA with over 64,000 students and there are also 28 public community and state colleges.
Your Visa for Moving to Florida
The EB-5 visa is the way that most UK residents manage their entry into the US. We would strongly recommend that you find a solicitor with expertise in this area to help you navigate the red tape, as the process isn’t straightforward.
