Lee County Is One of the Best Places to Buy a Vacation Home in the US

 

With its white-sand beaches, warm Gulf Coast waters, and year-round sunshine, Cape Coral/Fort Myers is the quintessential vacation home destination. Easily accessible from anywhere in the country with direct flights into RSW Airport, the area is a top choice for second home buyers, vacationers, and retirees. A recent report found that Lee County ranked third overall as a choice for second home buyers.  Nearby Collier County, where Naples is located, ranked fifth. However, homes in Lee County come with a much more affordable price tag.

And although you might not be able to prevent flood damage, you could take measures to avoid losing truly irreplaceable things.
2.    Where to find shelter—When a storm hits, the last place you want to be is outside. Even a car is not a reliable place to take refuge. It’s best to think through where r ...

Working Remotely? 7 Aspects to Consider before Changing Cities
If your profession allows you to work remotely, you’re part of a trend many see as fortuitous.
Analysts say 25% of all jobs in North America were remote by the end of 2022, and remote opportunities are expected to grow again this year.
In response, 5 million remote workers in the U.S. opted to change their cities of residence between 2020 and 2022, with 19 million more expected to follow suit. And many are apparently happy with the results; one poll found that 82% of Americans who moved in 2020 “changed their lives for the better.”
If you’re among those considerin ...
