Top 5 Reasons to Retire in Florida

Top 5 Reasons to Retire in Florida

CRF Resale Communities are the perfect place for you to retire. But of course, we’re biased. So we decided to make you a list of reasons to start your retirement with us.

1. The Value Of Your CRF Home

CRF Community homes are quality built. You can find homes in our communities starting as low as $5,000, but with all the amenities of a dream Florida retirement. Your neighbors become friends, your community is safe, the activities are endless and the proximity to outside recreation is unmatched; you can’t find a better value for your dollar.

“Coming from Canada, we were concerned about the monetary exchange rate and finding the right location. We were treated so well by the people in the community and were very pleased not only with the lot rents but the well-kept amenities.”

- Bob

Featuring 14 outstanding retirement communities in the Central Florida area, these affordable homes should be reason enough to make your move, but we’ll list a few more reasons to start your active retirement with us, just to be sure you’re sold.

2. The Sunshine [State]

Everyone is jealous of Florida weather – there is a reason people who travel here for the winter are called “snowbirds!” Whether you’re looking to make a permanent move, or just want to use the sunshine state as a brief escape from the cold during those rough winter seasons, CRF is the clear choice for your relocation. Located in the heart of Central Florida, CRF Communities boast sunshine year-round, and the lowest temperatures average around 60 degrees. When you’re posting photos to social media, or gabbing to your friends about the sunset stroll you took in December, you’ll be happy you made a CRF Community your new home.

3. Active Retirement Recreation

At CRF Communities, retiring doesn’t have to mean “slow down” (unless, of course, you want it to!) We are always organizing community events, group activities & games, and offer all sorts of classes from our fitness center to water aerobics in our heated pools. Interested in a few rounds of shuffleboard? How about a game of Bridge? Want to work on your golf handicap? Well, now you can! With clear, warm, Florida weather, you now have the benefit of being able to golf, year-round!

In our communities, we are never short on fun. Don’t believe us? Take it from our current members!

“I have been a resident of Angler’s Cove for 3 years now and I would recommend it to my friends. The community is clean, friendly, and there are lots of things to do with good people.”

- Carolann

 4. Affordable Florida Living

A great piece of living in Florida is the financial aspect of the state. Florida is home to some of the most delicious and affordable dining. Being near the water means fresh seafood and other delectable fine dining at a fraction of the cost you’re used to in the Northeast or Midwest!

Other Florida perks? There is no state income tax, and cost of living is 2% lower than the national average. For those that are retired (and usually on a fixed income), there is no better state to purchase a home, and CRF communities offer you a ton of affordable options.

5. Vacation Destination

Florida is one of the top travel destinations in North America. And, when you live in a CRF community, you are conveniently located between two world-class airports: Tampa International Airport and Orlando International Airport, so your family and friends will have the ease of travel when they come to stay with you!

Your kids, grandkids, and even great-grandkids will love the community proximity to The Walt Disney World Resort and other amazing amusement parks, not to mention the short drive to some of the best beaches in North America.

Still not convinced? Taking a tour of our communities will absolutely convince you that CRF is the place to start your Florida retirement. Contact us today to set up a tour of our available homes for sale.
