      Joking aside the weather is in the top 3 reasons we decided to emigrate...theres nothing worse than a piddling down grey day imo...does my head in and the uk does get more than its fair share ....its a pity we dont have the ability to spend time in 2 countries but with kids its pretty impossible...Im feeling guilty about taking mine out of school when we come back later this year....bloody kids they ruin everything

      Owning property in the US makes no difference to immigration status, some people have found that it can effect how often they can visit as immigration sometimes think that owning a US property makes a person want to live here and they don't like the thought of that iyswim!

      If you do decide to buy somewhere for holidays, make sure you look into all the fees and up keep, they usually work out more than just renting somewhere for a few weeks. Remember due to the weather AC has to be on most of the year whether the place is empty or not, also HOA fees (Home Owner Association) can be high especially for an appt.

      TBH the weather right now isn't so nice as it's sooooooooo humid!! Although the last few days have been nice and sunny we have had a lot of rain and more forecast from tomorrow!!

      Where in Florida do you fancy?
