With long summers, outdoor activities, and more white-sand beaches than you can dig a spade into, it’s no surprise that Santa Rosa County has seen such an uptake in new residents lately. If you’re considering a move out to northwest Florida, here’s what to consider first.


Housing may be one of your main priorities when considering a move to Santa Rosa. Fortunately, with a burgeoning real estate market, the forecast looks bright for buyers.

  • Santa Rosa Beach boasts a huge number of high-spec beach homes built within the recent couple of decades
  • The region is popular amongst homeowners looking for close communities as Santa Rosa is comprised of 34 smaller towns and neighborhoods
  • Make sure you plan ahead and check online reviews before using a local realtor to help you find listings for homes in your price range


Residents of Santa Rosa County enjoy a quiet, spacious way of life. Here’s what to expect from the lifestyle.

  • There are plenty of outdoor activities, with three state parks, two preserves, bike trails, blue sky fishing opportunities, and abundant wildlife (including dolphins)
  • Santa Rosa is home to some of the state’s most vibrant and respected art communities
  • If you have kids, look into Santa Rosa’s education opportunities, including a charter school ranked amongst the top 10 middle schools in Florida


If you’re moving your business across state lines, it’s important to understand the implications and new requirements.

  • If you haven’t already, you may need to apply for an LLC Florida business license
  • When forming a new business, you may find there are certain advantages to structuring as a Limited Liability Company (LLC), such as less paperwork, tax benefits, and reduced personal liability
  • Once you have a business name, address, and corporate purpose, you can apply to register with the Department of State (DOS)

If you’re seeking sun, serenity, and a warm, communal social scene then Santa Rosa County may be for you. Just make sure you research ahead before making your move.
