Real estate investors take note, A Cato Institute survey just ranked states in the order of how free they are. Specifically, the study examined how each state’s policies promote freedom in the personal, fiscal and regulatory spheres. The designation of “freest state in the nation” goes to Florida. Florida actually earned seven top ten rankings, four number one rankings and the overall number one ranking. So what’s so free about Florida?

Florida’s less restrictive policies have promoted economic growth. These policies have hundreds of people flocking to the state every single day looking for more opportunity. Taxes in Florida are incredibly reasonable and even property insurance is more affordable in Florida than around the country. This is one reason why property investors love owning homes in Florida. Actually, according to the study more than $156 billion in annual income has migrated into Florida from high tax states like New York.

When broken down into individual category, Florida did exceptionally well in the fiscal category which looked at thinks like taxes. The state’s state-level taxes are more than a standard deviation and a half below the United States’ average.
