Vero Beach ranks #3 in top housing markets for CEOs

Housing markets with the highest percentage of resident CEOs and legislators were identified by the U.S. Census Bureau according to a recent article by The Wall Street Journal . Five of the ten top spots are in Florida, including the Vero Beach market ranking #3.

Florida is also a popular destination because there is no individual state income tax. As noted in the article, home prices in all markets are rising, and CEOs are attracted to the beautiful year-round weather and abundance of sunshine. Another factor in Florida's popularity could be that many times a second home in a vacation destination can transition to a primary residence as working remotely becomes more feasible.
