How to Retire in Vero Beach Florida

If you hear the word “retirement”, what are the first few thoughts that come to your mind?

You may have thought of comfort, golf, free time to read, grandchildren, surplus time, beaches, new friends or relaxation.

Free time can be a bit scary for new retirees. If you were used to getting a bunch of daily emails, when you retire you may get bored and find yourself looking at your smartphone or your computer all the time looking for things to do.

Cut yourself some slack. Your life of retirement can be your chance to experience a life that is free of stress and a daily schedule.

Homes for Sale in Vero Beach Florida

Vero Beach Florida is where you can spend your retirement days in bliss!

You don’t need to worry about what is popular just what has worked for a long time in Vero Beach.

  • It’s called Vero Beach for a reason. The unspoiled 30 miles of white sandy beaches from the Fort Pierce Inlet to the Sebastian Inlet is to die for! The community clubhouses limit the access but there are also public beach accesses in the Sebastian Inlet, Wabasso Beach just across the Orchid Island, Humpston Park in Vero Beach and Avalon State Park which is closer to Fort Pierce. If you have been a beach person all your life, that doesn’t need to change. The combination of blue and emerald green ocean water will capture your attention all the time.
  • You can enjoy doing activities that you haven’t tried in a long time like boating in Indian River Lagoon, fishing by the Sebastian Inlet, or choosing from one of the several golf clubs would you like to be registered in. Immerse yourself into the rich art and culture of the best small city in Florida.  From the graffiti wall to impeccable professional Broadway theatres this city has so many activities to get involved in.
  • Your grandchildren will have more reasons to visit you since you’re just 2 hours away from Disneyland. Highway access is also easy from Vero Beach via Interstate 95.
  • Shopping is a snap with the hosts of Vero Beach Outlets near Interstate 85 and State Road 60. You can do traditional shopping of signature brands. Then stretch your time by visiting big box stores located in the Indian River Mall. Since you have more time to walk or run, then you can eat your heart out at any of the fantastic restaurants. There is a feast of choices! Try Ocean Grill and Captain Hiram’s in Sebastian where you can peacefully have lunch or dinner barefoot on the sandy beaches along the river.
  • A daily walk on 23-mile beach stretch is just one of many advantages of retiring in Vero Beach. There’s no income tax, low sales and property taxes, top notch medical facilities (including Indian River Medical Center which has the number 1 Heart Program in Florida), exciting 55+ and active senior activities.

It’s all here waiting you!

The reasons I wrote above are the same reasons I fell in love with this city. I made a career out of it as a REALTORⓇ because it’s true, if you love what you do, then you’ll never have to work a single day in your life. And I have 18 years of experience which can attest to that. I love helping those who decide to spend their best years in Vero Beach, Florida.

My passion is to find your dream retirement home or if you are testing the waters, then a vacation home. With the real estate properties’ current median sales price at $169, 900, we can surely find the right home for you.

Vero Beach FL Homes for Sale

How Can I Effectively Sell My Vero Beach Home?

Living in Vero Beach

Vero Beach is home to many of the top 55+ communities in Florida.

The mature crowd loves its spectacular beaches and warm weather. Gated communities like Woodfield Vero Beach and Waterway Village offer resort-style lifestyles of peace and serenity, the perfect triad the mature crowd is looking for.

But no matter how ideal a place is, there are times when you have to move away. It could be for personal reasons, it could be for business reasons, whatever your reasons are, you will need to put your Vero Beach home up for sale.

Selling a home in a planned development

Since most homes in active 55+  communities of Vero Beach are well-maintained, what kind of preparation should you be doing to sell it?

Here are some tips on how to get started on the selling process.

  1. Price your home realistically. With the help of your real estate agent or REALTOR®, set a realistic price for your home. Pricing your home is challenging, but there is no magic formula for it. Using the CMA and other tools, you and your real estate agent can agree on a price that is fair for you and the buyer.

  1. Give your home a minor makeover. Vero Beach homes for sale are already nice and in good condition, especially those in gated communities. A few things need improvement, but in most cases, there is no need for a major renovation. If you want to sell your home fast, do minor improvements, not a renovation. Renovating can add cost to your home, and may make it more difficult for your home to sell.

What are some things you can improve?

  • Kitchen. The kitchen is one of the most important parts of the home. Although not all buyers can cook, most would like to have a presentable and clean kitchen. So clean your kitchen and make it look properly maintained. Replace old or worn out handles. Replace the faucet if it is tarnished. Give the cabinets a fresh coat of paint. Clear the counters and drawers of any knick-knacks. Update your light fixtures to give your kitchen a brighter look.

  •  Bathroom. Next to the kitchen, bathrooms are the second best rooms to improve. If your bathroom is already updated, a deep clean would be all it needs. It will remove any lingering smell and make it open house ready.

  • Add storage. Check your storage areas like cabinets and closets to see if there are things that need to be cleared out. Throw out any broken and unused items. Doing this can clear the area and make it look more spacious. You need to add more storage for organization, don’t forget to paint it.

  • Light. You want to show your home in the best light, and you cannot do that with dim lights. Replace your light fixtures if you have low light. Get some contemporary ones that will go well with your decor and furniture.

  • Curb appeal. You’ve heard this before. You did it in your first home when you were preparing it for sale. Obvious as it may be, a well-kept lawn with trimmed pathway and some flower boxes under the windows can create a good and lasting impression.

  1. Work with an experienced professional. Working with an experienced and competent agent or REALTOR® can make all the difference in your home selling journey. You’ll be assisted, guided and given all the resources to sell your home when you get the help of a professional.

A competent and experienced REALTOR® like me, Karen Mathers can alleviate the possible stress caused by putting your home for sale.

Why is 55+ the perfect age?

Aside from having the wisdom to claim experience without thinking you know it all, turning 55 and over gives us the freedom from the hardest part of parenthood.  

The kids are now adults, you feel happy when they spend time with you and also when they don’t.

Studies show that an average retiree is not thinking about what he or she will be like when they’re older. We still want to be relevant and connected.
