The winter weather in Greater Cleveland has been brutal this year. Snow. Ice. Gray skies. Week after week of single digit temperatures.
Have you thought about retiring to Florida, or perhaps becoming a Florida resident for just the winter months?
Not to rub it in, but the average temperature in south Florida this winter has been 77 degrees. It has been a perfect winter golf season. So it’s time to stop being cold and cooped up in the house, and time to start thinking about your winter escape plan.
But if you are going to get out of the cold Cleveland winter, of course you will want to play golf and you will want to do it right. But how do you research and filter through the 1,200 golf courses and country clubs — and millions of real estate options — available in Florida?
GMC will have industry leaders on hand from the PGA of America, licensed real estate agents and brokers, financial advisors, and other speakers offering an unbiased look at your snowbird or retirement options. No pressure, no stress, just information for you to think about and consider!

The forums are structured as question-and-answer sessions as well, so please come prepared with all of your thoughts or concerns. Some of the most frequently asked questions are:
• What are the current real estate trends in Florida? Is it a buyer’s or seller’s market? Would investing into a property and renting it be a wise move at this time?
• What is the difference between a bundled community, golf club, and country club?
• What are resignation lists and how do they function? Assessments?
• Can I lose my initial deposit into a club as an equity member?
• How can I prepare financially for the transition with my financial advisor? Is there a benefit to move assets into Florida to save on taxes?
There are six critical pieces to the Florida transition process. So before you begin your search for the right community based on your wants, needs, and financial preparedness, listen to and talk with our industry leaders to get you on the right track! That way, there will be no surprises in the years to come.
Whether you are 2 years or 10 years from retirement or a seasonal purchase, we always encourage everyone to “Be Educated, Be Advised and Be Strategic”.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call our PGA Golf Professionals at 1.855.633.8462. Better yet, VISIT OUR WEBSITE TO REGISTER for the forums in Cleveland Heights on March 27th and Akron/Canton on March 28th!
