Relocation to Coral Springs area from NJ

Asked by DLEW, Tampa, FL Tue May 8, 2012

My family (high school and middle school aged) will be relocating for a position in the Coral Springs area from the Northeast (NJ). We would like advice on towns we should consider. The quality of schools are very important to us. Expected budget is around $300k and would like 3 bedrooms/2.5 baths. We are also have a golden retriever so the the neighborhood would need to pet friendly.

Help the community by answering this question:


Do you own a home in NJ" If so, is it up for sale and is its sale necessary for you to qualify to purchase a home here in South Florida? I ask because preappoval for your obtaining a mortgage on a home here in the price range with which you are comfortable should be done to enable a realtor to proceed confidently in assisting you.

As a mortgage loan originator, I can assist you in the preapproval process, and then proceed to work with you and your real estate professional to come to a successful closing in a timely manner in a neigborhood with good schools.

I moved to Boca Raton from New Jersey over 4 years ago and I love it down here. One town to consider is Boca - they have great schools and there are plenty of kids. There are actually 4 public high schools just in Boca and they are all top rated.

Please feel free to call me at 561-862-9955 and I would be happy to give you more information about Boca and the schools.
