There are nice condos across the street from the South Gate Mall zip code 34239 in the $50-80,000 range.
We also have a community called Strathmore Villas that have boat docks and one story homes, villa style, all maintenance free. Both of the communities mentioned always have a few units available.

Forgive my delay, so I hope this input helps you and all our Baby Boomer Sisters -- there are so many way to make opportunities in ownership her -- just take the time to sit down with a top notch Realtor (like myself) and create a strategy that encompasses:
Your life pursuitâ€™s,
We will gather the information and help you put it together for you.
When it comes to a purchase, let us do a little math. If you use 1/3 of your income for mortgage, $600 should allow you to borrow around $100,000. That would mean you could purchase a condo for $130,000, which gives you a lot of possibilities around here.
Now we do not now your credit score, your ability to borrow and so forth. First you should check with a bank or a mortgage broker and get a pre-qualification. You will then know exactly what you can and cannot buy.
We can then work from there.
There are some 2 bedroom condos to rent starting at $775 per mo and up. Most are $1100 to $1300. I would be happy to send you some listings to review or you can search for them on my web site at: http://www.tammyhayes.remaxagent.com/

As to rentals, many of the 2 bedroom units rent in the $900 to $1150 per month range in this area.
You would have to determine if those numbers would work with your budget and other expenses not given here.
I personally don't handle rentals but can give you some names of local condo rental companies if you want to contact me by email thru my website or by phone.
