Do Florida Realtors Gloss Over the Negatives?

“Realtors are always quick to accentuate the positives about Florida and gloss over any negatives.”    My thanks to Karen Nichols of Fort Myers Beach, FL for the idea.  In her post she highlighted some of the perceived negatives such as:
  • Summers.  They are indeed hot at times.
  • Hurricanes sometimes happen!
  • Not an abundance of the refined “culture!” OK, I concede Broadway is still in The Big Apple!
I will add a few more such as:
  • Mosquitoes as big as birds.
  • Animals (not spring breakers!) like alligators, pythons in the Everglades, sharks in the ocean, and snakes (sometimes in your yard).
  • Slow drivers, with turn signals always on, wearing pastel shirts and Velcro fastener shoes (not true but I wanted to see if you were really reading this!)
The reality is it does get hot and there are animals. You must stay out of their habitat or take precautions. You do not play golf during the summer mid-day heat nor stay on the course when the lightening comes – and get out of the pool and off the beach!

So, do Florida Realtors gloss over the negatives?  Perhaps, but the negatives are not really so negative.  

They are part of the Florida lifestyle, the Florida experience!
