There are many choices when it comes to accommodation for snowbirds from condominium communities to single family homes-gated or not. Most of the communities have owners that return north for the summer. If you are looking for something you can rent out when you are not there many of the communities low that although some have restrictions. Your realtor should be able to find that information out for you when you before you look at a place.
As for management it depends on what you are looking for. If you simply want someone to check on your place while you are away. There are many options from large companies to small mom and pop operations that can provide the service. If you are looking for someone to find tenants for you, your realtor is your best choice.
I would like to be that realtor. Call me.

Other than the places mentioned before -- and they're all great -- I also recommend Delray Beach. It was voted the most fun city in America (Conde Nast Traveler Magazine, Rand McNally and USA Today, among others).

If you are looking for a winter home that you can rent out when you are not in residence there are many opportunities and I am happy to manage the property while you are away. You will want to focus on areas where there is a strong demand in the off season months so focus on coastal areas like Singer Island and the Jupiter/Juno Beach area. We are seeing more and more demand in the summer months for off season rentals.
You will want to focus either developments that will allow rentals of 30 days or shorter. Depending on your individual needs and budget we still have some great opportunities close to the sand. I would be honored to be included on the list of RealtorsÂ® you may choose to interview for all you real estate needs here in Palm Beach County.

Most FL communities that have snowbirds have management agencies that can help out while you're away. Make sure you find one that, after a good interview, you trust to take care of your home.
While I know EVERYWHERE in FL is going to provide a more temperate winter climate than Wisconsin, why not make your snowbird move to the ONLY FL location that has NEVER seen frost? The Keys are always better weather than mainland FL...cooler in summer and warmer in winter. They don't call it the "American Caribbean" for nothing! Best of luck with your transition...it's a good life!
