      Reasons Why People Move from California to Florida

      There are several reasons why people relocate from California to Florida. They include the following:

      • The cost of living in California is expensive compared to Florida. For example, the country has high taxes, including state income, property, and sales taxes, not forgetting the taxes on common things like gasoline.
      • There is no self-preservation in California. This is mostly evident in the frequent dangerous earthquakes that come without warnings, the water shortage, drought, and wildfires that kill many people every time.
      • The schools in California are mostly crowded and don't match up to the taxes paid. Although good, they are seemingly not affordable for low- and mid-level citizens.
      • The median home value in California is roughly $549,000, which is higher than that in Florida, which is around $299,000.
      • There are not enough house units in California, leading to long commutes, homelessness, overcrowding, and high housing costs.

      Pros and Cons of Living in Florida


      • Lower housing costs compared to California.
      • It is easier to invest in Florida since the cost of living is not as high as that of California.
      • The sales tax rate in Florida is 6%, unlike California, which is slightly higher (7.25%). This means purchasing items in Florida is much cheaper.
      • Florida is among the six states that have no state income tax. Thus, one's paycheck is not taxable unless it reaches a certain threshold.
      • Florida has better beaches. The beaches are public and not more than two hours away from one's place of stay.
      • Florida embraces diversification, making it a suitable place to stay regardless of background.
      • There are more career opportunities in Florida; a fun fact is that it was listed as one of the countries with the fastest job growth rates in 2020.


      • Florida is a very hot place. The high humidity makes living in the area uncomfortable unless you are used to high heat.
      • There are too many roaches and bugs in Florida, unlike California.
      • The increase in population has gradually led to increased traffic, inconveniencing people who love to get to their destination in a good time.
      • The healthcare quality is below average as the country was ranked 36 out of 50 based on countries with poor healthcare services.
      • The crime rates in Florida are high in the non-tourist areas.
      • Although there may be career opportunities in the city, employers tend to pay employees less money ($30-$65) per hour, unlike California, where the pay is slightly higher ($110 per hour or even more).

      Moving Yourself vs. Hiring Moving Company

      When relocating to a different place, you can either do it yourself or hire a moving company. More often than not, most people think that moving by themselves helps save money, but that is usually not the case in real life. For instance, moving yourself will lead to the following:

      You make plans and do things your way without being micromanaged.Buying or renting moving materials such as boxes and wraps.
      You might spend a bit less, but it is not always guaranteed.It is time-consuming and requires effort for the process to go well.

      You do the heavy lifting and, therefore, get too tired.
      It needs planning, which can be stressful and time-consuming.

      Due to these factors, you should consider using a moving company. Here are the benefits and disadvantages of using a moving company:
