Closing Up Your Vacation Home

Our beloved Florida is affectionately and accurately referred to as the Sunshine State. Because of our beautiful subtropical and tropical climates throughout the state, we get a lot of visitors. Of course, having so many fun things to do, like a plethora of amusement parks as well as fun outdoor activities like airboats make it a great place to visit! The weather only adds to the enjoyment. Most visitors just come for a vacation, a week or two, if they are lucky. But, we do have a decent amount of visitors that come for larger chunks of time. Most of these visitors come from colder states during the winter months and stay here in Florida to escape the cold and snow in their home state. We can’t blame them. We love it here too!

Florida has an average of 239 days of sunshine per year. That means 67% of our days are sunny. In contrast, New York has 184 days of sunshine per year, making only about half of their days sunny. Around Easter each year, our northern visitors make their way back home before it gets really hot and humid here.

Moving in or out

There are some things about moving that are unavoidable. You have to pack and unpack even though it is a dastardly deed. You have to sort, organize, and throw things out that you wish you hadn’t packed! And, you have to clean. If you are moving out of a rental, cleaning is part of the deal, at least if you want your deposit returned to you from the landlord. Moving costs money, so getting that deposit back is a desirable result of cleaning once you’ve emptied your former abode.

When preparing for a move, packing can be the one thing that many of us dread the most. The unpacking can be kind of fun. We get to organize our new place “just so” and for at least that first blissful month everything is organized and where it belongs, at least until someone uses it for the first time and promptly misplaces it!
