Walking Your Dog in the Wrong Neighborhood….

I met someone yesterday who told me they were moving from New Jersey to Viera (Melbourne), Florida.  With all due respect to New Jersey, I can understand the decision.

But still I asked the big “why.”

The response initially confused me as the words “because I realized I was walking my dog in the wrong neighborhood” began to sink in.

Apparently the neighborhood they had been living in for the past 30 years had deteriorated as homes have gone through foreclosure.

The neighborhood had become more investor-owned and less owner occupied.  I think that may be part of the natural evolution of neighborhoods!

I asked them why they chose Viera (in Melbourne Florida). The response is pretty much what I expected.
  • Great weather 
  • Plenty of golf courses 
  • Attractive prices especially in the 55+ communities like Heritage Isle and Grand Isle 
  • Access to beaches, cruises and other recreational venues.
There are other reasons why folks choose to relocate to Brveard County, Florida. Like some of the best schools in Florida, great fishing and boating, affordable cost of living, accessibility to Orlando and its attractions. 

If you are considering relocating to Florida, check out Brevard County and east central Florida.  

If you are walking your dog tomorrow morning and realize you are in the wrong neighborhood, call me at 321-693-3850 or email me.
