Yes, you can live there year round. Short term zoning simply means that the owners of the property have the option of leasing their unit out on a short term basis, weekly etc. These communities were designed to cater to 2nd home purchasers , investors etc. with the option of doing an expense offset by leasing out short-term to vacationers. However, there is nothing that precludes an owner from living at the unit year round.

Looking to move from California to Florida. Great idea.
The other answers are 99.9% correct. The only thing to watch out for is places that are marketed as condos but are really condotels (hotels where the rooms are sold as condos). There are certainly some fot hese where you are not allowed to occupy the unit more than 50% of a year.
There are some great deals in condos right now. Check out my website and if you like my approach, then I be glad to help you out. I do lots of long distance searching for out-of-towners.

I hope you are having a great Tuesday!
When a single family, townhome, or condo is zoned for short term rentals, you can live there year round, or rent it out on a weekly/nighty basis or on a long term basis (6mos or more).
If you property is zoned residential, you can live it in year round or long term, but not on a weekly or nightly basis.
I hope this helps with your question. Feel free to contact me to answer any more that you might have.
The only downside is your neighbors will change daily, weekly and possible none at all for a while, the upside is neighbors will change and the clubhouse amenities will be yours.
