FLORIDA CONDO--seeking general advice

Jump to last reply

Like many others, my thoughts occasionally turn to the subject of buying a condo in South Florida due to the apparent bargains that appear to be available these days. Although this will likely remain a daydream, I would be interested in learning more about the area, particularly the southern eastern coast, and would welcome opinions on great places to live. I realize that all of these will be generalities and that, should I ever be serious about this, I would need to spend some time in the area.

But where to begin? How does one even choose an area to visit?

Just to get the conversation stated, I will mention that a pool suitable for serious swimming is a priority. A water view would be lovely, but not essential. Not interested in nightlife, but a couple of good restaurants would be nice. Other than that, I have no fixed ideas and would love to hear opinions. Areas that I have visited briefly in the past, or have heard about through friends, include Jupiter, Boynton Beach, West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Tequesta, and others. What about the Miami area? (Not South Beach)
Should I place the Sarasota area, or other west coast locales, in the mix?

Can we make generalizations about these, and other, locations, keeping in mind that they will be just that--generalizations? Is there a website that can give me information about the various towns? Or a book?

Please feel free to state any and all opinions...many thanks.
