My son is considering purchasing a condo in City place. I have heard very conflicting reports about the safety of this area as well as the risk of investing here. Please give me some advise.

Dear City Place West Palm Beach,

Since 2006 I have worked with buyers and sellers in the Downtown WPB market. The City Place and Clematis St. entertainment districts are the heart of our city. I believe in the area so much so that I bought a business just off Clematis Street. This required many late night walks alone to my car. I owned this business for three years without ever having an issue.
All investments carry some risk.. However, vacancy rates are low, there are no new construction projects and prices are slowly on the rebound. If you plan on holding this condo at least 5 to 7 years, you should expect a healthy return.

CityPlace is my area of concentration. I have many thrilled buyers who have purchased condos in the CityPlace area. They each have expressed how happy they are in the CityPlace area and feel their investment will increase greatly.

I personally feel safe when I am there, which is quite often. But, I wouldn't suggest walking the streets alone there or anywhere in West Palm Beach- after 9 pm. But, many people do.

If you are concerned about safety, your best source of accurate and up to the minute information are the local authorities, therefore consider a visit/call and ask all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand.
