Any realtor will tell you that one of the keys to success is knowing the local market. Since the United States is so broad and wide-ranging in terms of both climate and culture, realtors would do well to tailor their blog posts to their own specific regions.
Due to a heady mix of subtropical climate, colorful wildlife, and extreme weather factors, Florida realtors have quite an array of exciting topics to choose from.
Below you will find a 450-word sample of the type of quality posts our writers can produce for Florida-based companies.
As veteran Florida residents will tell you, although summer seems like a dot on the horizon, Hurricane Season is always at the back of our minds. Although the onset of Hurricane Season isn’t quite in sight, that doesn’t mean that it’s time to relax. On the contrary: ensuring that you’re prepared is more important now than it’s ever been.
Unfortunately, although many Florida residents do tend to prepare for Hurricane Season at some point in the year — usually early in the spring — by late summer they’ve begun to let their guards down. Perhaps they’ve even delved into their hurricane supplies to use some of their bottled water and canned goods during weeks that they were too busy to go to the grocery store.
Worse yet, some residents may never prepare at all, meaning that in the event of a storm system headed their way, they’ll have to add a panicked grocery run into the mix of gassing up the car, putting up their shutters, and battening down the hatches.
And some who are new to Florida may not have the first clue what hurricane preparedness should look like. That’s why now is the best time to start thinking about the steps you’ll need to take this coming spring.
How To Ensure That You’re Prepared For Hurricane Season:
- Make a list of supplies. Even if you stored up needed items last year, that doesn’t mean that you haven’t delved into them yourself at some point or that other members of your household might have done so. Better safe than sorry. Go check your supply bin and be sure that the essentials are still there, and in good supply: batteries, bottled water, canned goods, etc. Use whatever seems to be approaching an expiration date and make a note to replace it in the spring. If you’re unsure what should be on your list, check with the National Hurricane Center for more information.
- Review your disaster plan with your household. Go over your disaster plan to ensure that nothing has changed. Make changes as necessary, and be sure that everyone in your home is clear about what should happen, in the case of a disaster.
- Check with family, friends, and neighbors to be sure that they’re well informed regarding supplies and plans, as well. Although you would certainly help them in any way they needed in the event of a real emergency, it’s certainly better to give a reminder now than to bail them out later.
Storm seasons come and go, but thank goodness that no matter how busy the tropics might be during any given year, Florida has weathered every storm so far.
Be sure that you’re ready to weather them, too.
