It sounds as if there is some doubt about the general location of your commitment....this is very normal.
Under these circumstances, we often advise our customers to visit the areas of their choice not for the purpose of selecting THE home but viewing each location for the quality of life that if offers relative to your needs.
It's often confusing when the two steps are take at once...finding an area and finding a home. Deciding on the location first can make your life a whole lot easier.
While you are looking, consider going a little further south to the Sarasota/Venice area where people often refer to their location as, Paradise!
Also, Tom Brokaw is doing a special on CNBC on Thursday, March 4th at 9pm on the "To 15 retirement locations in the country." Sarasota will be revealed as number 6 in his report. You may want to watch and find out why!
We hope you find this information helpful.
