Not so long ago, the search for real estate in Florida had two main objectives: 1 – leisure (second home) or 2 – investment. In recent years, however, the main motivation has been another: moving and living in Florida. Mainly Americans residing in northern states of the USA (Ex.: NY) practically invaded the “Sunshine State” in search of better quality of life, bigger houses, pleasant climate and lower population density (escape from the big congested centers). Latin Americans, in general, also started to buy thinking about a possible future move. And for those who have children, the decisive factor for buying became a “good school”.

Fortunately Florida offers some of the best schools and universities in the United States. South Florida has recently been gaining prominence. Several conquered the top ranking among the best elementary and middle schools, as well as the TOP 5 ranking for charter schools. The ranking was released by U.S. News & World Report.
