scorpio115, We are in the same process of considering buying a home in Florida for retirement, we are making trips there regularly to see what the community is like and if we will feel comfortable with the life style, while looking at homes. It is a scary move, but presently we are in Missouri and this is not our home state either since we are New Yorkers originally. I think we are more concerned with getting back to the East coast and that is why we are prospecting Florida. You may need to figure out why you want the move before you actually consider the move. Whatever you do, it is important to please yourselfs first.
The very best of luck in whatever you decide.
