More Sunshine for Port St Lucie Real Estate
Port St Lucie, Fl – The Florida state Senate approved a bill on Tuesday to let Florida remain on Daylight Saving Time year-round. If Governor Rick Scott signs the “Sunshine Protection Act,” Congress would need to amend existing federal law to allow the change. If this bill is signed into law, get ready, because there will definitely be More Sunshine for Port St Lucie Real Estate market and more time for evening activities on the Treasure Coast of Florida!
If this bill is signed into law, what does this mean for Florida residents? Well first, when the rest of the Eastern United States would set their clocks back in the fall, Florida wouldn’t, leaving it with more sunshine in the evening during the winter. Yippie!
Yes! More sunshine to do those things that we love so much in South Florida like boating, fishing, walking around the neighborhood, golf and kids sporting events. This is definitely a good thing! I know, it’s hard to imagine more sunshine in Port St Lucie, Fl and the Treasure Coast 🙂
How will it affect us if we no longer have to fall back? Who cares, I cannot think of any adverse affect of more sunshine. But I did read that it is thought to be safer.
Studies have found that the roads are safer during the spring when it’s lighter longer, reducing pedestrian fatalities by 13 percent during dawn and dusk hours. Another study found the number of robberies is down 7 percent following the spring shift to Daylight Saving Time.
What about the Port St Lucie Fl real estate market? How will it affect showings? Most potential buyers work during the week so it’s hard to get out and look at homes. I see it as more time for buyers to look at property, more daylight for inspectors and appraisers to do their work. These are just a few of the benefits for more daylight. So get ready for More Sunshine for Port St Lucie Real Estate!
