I specialize in International Referrals so I see this all the time.

 I encourage them to examine all the pros and cons because relocating to a different country is not for everyone.

I also encourage short term rentals before purchasing.  If they are serious, then I love to work with them and make certain they are represented by a great agent in their new Paradise.

It has been trendy to vacation or buy a place in Costa Rica. I had friends who moved to Mexico because it was going to be wonderful, they moved back to the US.

No, most people I come across both in the midwest and here in Vegas seem to like where they are.

Costa Rica is a popular destination from here in SD. I refer them to my international sales partner, wish them well...and collect a nice referral fee.

I never have encountered anyone expressing that desire. They seem to be happy with Florida.

Since I myself did do that very thing in 2003 and returned 2007 I like to hear what they intend on doing once they are there. If it is a business I suggest they read the book Don't stop the Carnival by Herman Wouk.

Good morning Jillian. Earlier this year I referred a client to a Realtor in St. Thomas. They plan on moving there and making it their home.

I have a friend who keeps trying to move to south Texas, his wife and friends would prefer he kept his Wisconsin home though and spent some time up here.

Not often. Had one guy who listed his house. When it closed, he disappeared. Think he went to Panama!

This is a desire that I have seldom heard. 

Florida is the primary beneficiary of Maryland retirees who are moving south. The availability of Medicare medical services is one of the usual concerns.
