Why be a Snowbird, Buy Your 2nd home in Paradise

After the holiday season and the Groundhog shadow indicating six more weeks of winter, you envision flocking with the birds north and south to their favorite migration patterns. The snowbird mentality can come from too much snow in your yard, thoughts of beaches at Spring Break, or just the need for warmth or sunlight, but the urge is just the same as an instinct.


While driving during this time, you might see the same pattern that describes the snowbirds’ trademark style in an RV. Like a V pattern migration of the Canadian goose, RVs’ train on the roads south is an instinct that started in the 1920s.

The term “snowbird” has been around for almost 100 years. The word was first used in 1923 to describe seasonal workers who moved south for the winter months, and by 1979 it was commonly used about the large number of retiree tourists who flocked to the south.



This time of the year, our corporate calls with our Florida family are happily tucked away in the warmth of sunshine in their state, as the rest of us frown at the thoughts of six more weeks of cold and snow. The daydreaming of a vacation comes second nature.


There are many top Beaches in Fort Myers that they can use all year round.




From Beachfront Bargain to Million Dollar Listing, beachfront homes are for everyone, and if you want to be the traditional snowbird or have a second home on the sand. ERA Real Solutions Realty has real estate agents who understand both needs and markets that make both your families safe.


From Home to National Vacation:


It doesn’t matter what type of snowbird you want to be; make sure your vacation drive isn’t like this National Lampoons.



We laugh and joke about how funny the scene in National Lampoon Christmas Vacation is when the family car ends up under a log truck; however, the long drive of migration from north to south to warmer climates is nothing new.


But why not try something new? Find a home in your paradise spot instead of just vacationing there.
