Welcome to Our East Coast Connection in real estate, Karen ‘Rene’ Compton, as many people from California are re-locating to the State of Florida.
From the earliest settlers in the New World, to retirees in the 20th century, to immigrants looking for new start, Florida has long been a desired place to live. Now the third-most populated state in the country, its 20 million people live in a beautiful climate that is not without its issues.
The first in a series, we will focus on the things to remember when buying a home in the Sunshine State – from its history, to its dangers, and its future.
As new and first-time homeworkers, potential buyers should keep in mind the high moisture and humidity that comes with living in Florida. With an average annual rainfall of 54 inches, water is one of the defining elements of Florida life. When buying a house, its history with mold is one of the most important things a buyer should consider.
Another important thing to consider is if the home is if the property is prone to flooding – even if it’s not in a flood zone. Given that most of Florida is low-lying, particularly near the coasts, certain areas can easily flood, especially during hurricanes, which only grow stronger and more frequent every year. A flooded home can easily lead to toxic mold within its walls that can be very expensive and difficult to remediate.
Also importantly is a home’s EMF, or electromagnetic field, quotient. A low-EMF home design is very important to lessen the effects of exposure. Some things to consider include wired phone, internet, and TV sockets in every room to lessen the effects of cordless phones and WiFi networks. Making sure all electric cabinets, engines, etc., are as far away from sleeping areas as possible. And making sure no wires or other appliances and equipment are near beds.
Keeping these things in mind will make your home buying experience in Florida as easy and healthy as possible!
