A Few Reasons to Retire in Miami

Real Estate For Sale

Miami, Florida. The word itself evokes a sense of sun-kissed, sandal-wearing vacation. The weather, the beaches, the food, the culture, the nightlife and the Cuban food, all contribute to making this a paradise destination for all. Beyond trips, Miami is also one of the top retirement cities in the world, for all of the above reasons and more. Here is a list of reasons to retire in this mecca of delights.

1) Arthritis-Friendly Weather

Miami’s average peak temperature during summer is only 81 degrees F (27 C), while its average annual low is still a cozy 60 degrees F (16 C). For those with arthritis or other joint disorders, this is an enticing factor. 

2) Tax Incentives

Florida is one of the few states in the union (besides Texas and Alaska) that do not impose an income tax on its residents. There is also neither estate tax nor inheritance tax. So if you are fixing to cut down on government dues during your retirement years, you can bid farewell to your income, estate and inheritance taxes and say hello to more savings. 

3) Active Adult Communities (AAC)

Retirement may seem daunting because one could easily associate it with loneliness. But the truth of the matter is this: Retirement can be the start of a new and exciting chapter in your life, arguably better than the years before. You need to find a community of best friends that will always keep you company and have something exciting planned. These AAC are of the plenty in South Florida and offer state of the art fitness centers, clubs and community events. 

4) The Beach

Miami Beach, Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park and South Beach are a few of the many beaches Miami has to offer. Virginia Key Beach offers a more low key vibe, away from the partying atmosphere of South Beach and nestled right beside Key Biscayne. Pick your beach according to your personality.

5) Health Care

As a retiree, health care is a priority. The health care services in Miami are tailored to those with advanced age. There are endless providers posted up all over the city.
