I moved to FL from Maryland suburbs of DC for 9 years here, left, then came back less than a year ago.

House prices are better now for sure. I never believed in housing run up, sorry it hurt so many but it just wasn't real unfortunately many honest hard working people paying a price on this.

Jobs are tough here now, we are having a harder go of it the second time, but time will tell.

What info are you seeking, are you thinking of coming back or?

I left then came back, it was less expensive, less crowded and nicer in my opinion the 1st time, when I came back things changed for the worse, sprawl and excess exists. I wasn't gone that long a couple of years, and flew down in between and saw things changing.

I'm speaking in reference to where I live currently, I moved back to the same area I lived before. A lot of friends left due to the job market, they really struggled to make ends meet.

I moved to South Florida with my parents in the Early 1990 when I was 10. We moved back to Indiana in 1995. 16 years later I moved to North Florida from Alaska with my wife and kids. Totally different in North Florida and I love it.

I moved to Orlando in 2009 right out of college and worked at Walt Disney World. I only lasted a year down there due to a bad job market and moved back home to CT towards the end of 2010. I haven't moved back to FL but I do hope to one day.

Kinda , although I was born here....this place sucks. Moved away and back 3 times. In the last year 4 of my neighbors have left for greener pastures. The heat, the police state, no rain for 3 months at a time, no seasons, there's got to be a better life.

In a few days, I'll be moving back for the fourth time. That sound kind of ridiculous, even to me, but I always seem to be called back. Even though I grew up in NJ, I consider Florida home. Specifically, St. Augustine.

Unfortunately, this time I'll be in Winter Garden. Who knows? Maybe I'll like it. But, it's hard for most places to hold a candle to St. Augustine, IMO. What surprises me, is how little St. Aug changes through the years. It's like a little bubble of preservation in the middle of unending sprawl.

I'll have to post at a later date about what I think of Florida this time around.
