Leaving Fort Lauderdale for North Carolina
Whether it’s the cost of living, weather or a job, many Floridians are moving up the coast to North Carolina. In 2019 alone, over 280,00 people moved from Florida to North Carolina!
Making a move across the country is a significant change and undertaking, which is why hiring professional movers is an essential component to start off on the right foot in your new state. We know how to plan and execute your house move.
Moving to North Carolina from Florida will make things a little easier on your wallet. You can anticipate:
- The overall cost of living is lower in North Carolina than in Florida. Compare your current living costs here.
- The average home price in the Tar Heel State is nearly $63,000 cheaper than Florida prices.
- While you may be used to high energy bills, North Carolina has lower utility costs.
Despite Florida having some of the lowest taxes in the country, North Carolina is comparable, in 2018 the two states were ranked 2nd and 3rd (respectively) for lowest cost of living including taxes.
Keep the weather in mind when you decide to move. Florida’s sticky summers and warm winters allow for beach days nearly year-round, while North Carolina sees more of the seasons. This means you’ll likely see snow!
The Tar Heel State also has a larger variety of outdoor activities, including skiing and hiking in the Smoky Mountains. There are plenty of national parks to enjoy.
Another thing to remember is the culture and lifestyle you’re moving to. Florida has a thriving Hispanic heritage, with Little Havana and other predominantly Cuban or Spanish areas.
Schools can be a concern for parents; Florida comes in 29th overall while North Carolina schools are 22nd.
No matter what your concerns are when you’re ready to relocate from Florida to North Carolina, Cousins USA is the moving company that can help you easily make the move.
