South Florida Small Business Owners Flock to Live-Work Areas
Years ago it was common for small business owners to live above, behind, or within walking distance of their business and it seems as though the concept is reemerging. A recent article in The Miami Herald noted that a large number of shopkeepers are making their way back from the suburbs to live and work in the urban enclaves of South Florida. And given the state of the economy the trend of living near work is extremely beneficial as owners are able to save on gas, their commute and reduce their budget.
South Florida business owners aren’t the only ones cashing in on live-work areas because it has taken hold nationally. According to the 2010 American Community Survey report 5.7 million Americans work at home and 3.9 million walk to work.
