Hi Gary,

Ever hear of Solivita, just south of Orlando? It's one of the best 55+ communities in the US. They invite comparison to anywhere else. Right now there are still plenty of bargain homes on the market.

Before you make a final decision check it out.

Good luck with your search,

Riviera Beach is a very high crime, low income area surrounded by great places to live. It is by no means a "nice neighborhood", unless you are a drug dealer. Just look at the crime statistics!

Hi Gary,

Marsh Harbor itself has some nice looking condos and townhouses. You may want to check out the location in person so you can decide for yourself if YOU like the area. Everybody has their own wants and needs for retirement.

You may also want to consider some of the communities designed for people who are 55+. Many of them have some reasonably priced homes, and also offer more amenities.

Please give me a call and I'll be happy to help you find something.

Hi Gary,
I am in Punta Gorda and know nothing about Riviera Beach. However, have you explored other areas of Florida? What do you want from retirement? Punta Gorda is a small city on the Southwest coast of Florida. We have everything you could possibly want to do in your retirement. From boating, fishing to art galleries and performance arts, dancing, clubs and I think we have everything covered. All within an hour's drive. And Beaches. By the end of this this the largest Solar power station will be built here by Florida Power and Light. And shortly after that the first completely Solar powered city. So we have a lot to offer.

I would love to send you more information on this or you could read my blogs.

Hope you find the place that's perfect for you.

Good luck!!!
