AARP names Naples as the best place to retire in Florida for nature lovers and among the top 10 places in the US!AARP, an organization that knows a thing or two about retirees has just named Naples, Florida as one of the best places to retire to in the US. Just a couple of months ago Money Magazine named the Fort Myers and Cape Coral area of Florida as the number two spot on there best places to retire to list. The two counties these towns are in share a border and therefore make a strong case for those looking for an ideal place to retire to, to visit the area.
As almost everyone knows, Florida was ground zero for the housing crash. Prices in Florida suffered an average 60% decline from their peak. The market has stabilized somewhat in most areas of Florida, and is slowing increasing in some, including the areas mentioned in these best places to retire lists. There are still incredible home bargains to be had but it now takes a little more work to secure them. With all this increased attention to these areas, I expect housing to recover more quickly here than Florida as a whole.
Be warned, the Naples real estate market is selling at a discount but it is still pricy. There are bargains even in the most beautiful areas but probably too high for most retirees. Homes in Naples will sell for quite a bit more than a home in a similar area in the Fort Myers or Cape Coral Area. Homes in FM/CC are now priced lower than the US average home price and are probably more suitable for most buyers.
Any trip to see the area should also include areas just north of these two named winners. The Englewood and Venice areas as well as the Sarasota area (art and culture center of Florida) should not be missed.
Since unemployment is so high in Florida compared to other states, the state has been absent from the “best places to live” lists. But when it comes to the “best places toretire” lists, it offers the warmest places to move to along with the beaches compared to other states on the lists. That’s a great combination for many that are searching for the ideal place to enjoy retirement.
Best Place to Retire in Florida for Nature Lovers, Naples Florida!
