Home Improvement Alert is on in The Sunshine State!

By Stacy Mellete

There are many reasons why the Sunshine State gets all the admiration. First, despite the unpredictable weather, Florida still possesses the best climate anywhere in the country – with none of that polar vortex phenomenon to freeze you over. With beautiful sceneries surrounding your community, you will feel like residing and taking your vacation all at the same time.  

There is no shortage of attractions; you can take your pick from freshwater springs and underwater caves to the sunny shores of Miami and the sprawling theme park of Orlando. The foods are no doubt amazing here with plenty of choices owing to its awesome mix of culture. In addition, Florida is one of very few states that do not impose a state income tax.

Of course, if you are a bona fide Florida resident, you take pride in all these attributes. But we bet there is more to your state that you do not know about. This information from Realtor.com will make you even happier to be living here:

Florida had the most market of any state, with the metropolitan areas of Tampa-St.Petersburg-Clearwater, Orlando and Jacksonville all making the list.

“As we head into home-buying season, these markets show favorable conditions for first-time buyers, which is encouraging because these buyers are crucial to the housing market,” said Steve Berkowitz, CEO of Move Inc., operator of realtor.com.® “First-time buyers have a widespread impact on the local housing markets. In transitioning from renters to owners, new buyers pay property taxes and other fees and taxes associated with homeownership that benefit local schools and services.”

In St. Petersburg alone, its beautiful beaches and diverse communities lure people to visit and eventually stay here for good. No wonder the mid-sized city continues to attract more home buyers.

If you are looking to sell your property in the city, it is best that you seek the help of a home expert, such as a professional contractor for residential roofing in St. Petersburg who will advise you on improvements that you can do to boost the value of your home.

While the real estate market is favorable, pull your resources to improve your home. Consult Affordable Roofing Systems, a local roofing contractor in St. Petersburg. We provide an array of solutions: emergency repairs, storm damage restoration, hail damage, roof evaluations and roof management programs for commercial properties.
