why live in Florida

Life in Florida: a relocation magnet

Located in the southeastern United States, the state of Florida attracts more and more expatriates each year. Whether they are investors, professionals or young students, all are seduced by the “Sunshine State”.

The mild climate, white sandy beaches, developed infrastructure, attractive real estate market and of course, a lenient tax system make it the ideal destination on the East Coast of the USA. Florida is the fourth most populous state in the Americas and also one of the most prosperous.

Florida seduces on all levels, here are the reasons why.

Immigrants in Florida

The state of Florida is as we have seen the fourth most populated state in the United States. Many immigrants from all over the world come here to try to conquer America. But not only, many American retirees also come to spend their old age under the Florida sun.

The real estate market in Florida

The real estate market is very attractive in this part of the country. Very good opportunities exist which attracts investors from all over the world. The prices of real estate in Florida are often lower than those in Europe, hence the interest for real estate in Florida. If we add sunshine all year round (or almost) then we do not hesitate and we settle in Florida.

Taxation as mild as the weather

The tax system in Florida is very lenient and offers many advantages to company founders and also facilitates the obtaining of visas. As a matter of fact, any investor who would invest USD 500,000 in a company could be entitled to a green card if the company presents positive financial results and creates and maintains jobs.

Unlike California, where the corporate income tax is 8.8 percent, in Florida it is only 4.458 percent. In addition, the state constitution states in black and white that the state will not levy income taxes on individuals.
