Crofton to Florida Snowbird Express

Who wants to move to Florida?

Crofton to Florida Snowbird ExpressThat’s a question I’m asking Crofton Maryland residents throughout this month and next. 

Many Crofton residents arrived 20 or 30 years ago for government or consulting careers in Washington, D.C. or Baltimore.  Now they’re either retired or on the brink of retirement, with secure financial futures and lots of home equity.

Spending the cold winter months in Florida is a realistic option for them – in fact, moving to Florida altogether is on the minds of some.

That’s why I have declared (drum roll please)…


With the help of Katerina Gasset and Cyndee Haydon who are providing information about Wellington and Clearwater, I’m putting on a program for Crofton residents on February 7 at 7 pm.  I couldn’t resist setting a snow date of February 12, just to emphasize the potential for snow in February.  In fact, with a little luck, maybe we’ll have a snow storm about a week earlier so potential snowbirds will be suffering from snow-shovel fatigue.  That should provide some motivation!  (And a great opportunity for me to pass out fliers personally to retirees who are outside shoveling sidewalks and driveways.)

One of my favorite lenders will be there to tell people how they can use equity from their current home as a down payment and what it will take to qualify for financing on a second home.  An accountant will be there to answer questions about any tax implications of a second home or down-sizing to a retirement community in Florida.  And, of course, I’ll be prepared with information about selling their Crofton home in this buyer’s market.

I’m a little nervous…  if no one comes, it won’t be the first time I’ve ever produced a “bomb” – but I believe potential Florida home buyers and Crofton home sellers are out there.  You may have seen my quarter-page ad in the January and February issues of Suburban Scene Magazine, with distribution to 22,000 homes and businesses, and I’m advertising at the end of each Focus On Crofton blog post.  Additionally, I have fliers and mailings ready for distribution to targeted neighborhoods the last week of January.

If you’re a Crofton-area resident and would like to attend “Who Wants to Move to Florida”, you can make a reservation by contacting me here at Focus On Crofton.  Seating is limited, so don’t procrastinate!
