Very few lenders will finance condos in FL, especially if its not the primary residence, but my firm does. Feel free to call or email me for more info.

Dear Dstoves,

There are numerous homes in the area that are newer, and in an easy access location to entertainment, dining, and shopping for a vacation.

You can email or call me with your criteria, so that I can send you a list of homes by email.

You can also search my website http://www.LindaBassitt.com for homes for sale (click on "MLS Search") and search by map location, developments, etc. in advanced search.

Condos are a great buy from a price standpoint but are very difficult to finance. Were you looking to pay all cash? If not make sure you have your fianncing in place before going under contract. Condos are suffering from budget issues due to foreclosures so make sure that the HOA is in good standing or a bank wont lend on it.

If I can be of assistance please let me know

As you may expect, price will dictate location. The downtown area of West Palm has some great brand new condos that have been unsold. These are available for as much as 50% below 2007 prices. Depending on your needs/wants, there is something for everyone.

There are many areas in Palm Beach County from Boca - Jupiter that are beautiful, so knowing more about you is important in making recommendations.

I would be happy to provide some further insight if you can contact me with more specific information on your personal requirements.

West Palm Beach has a nice downtown area - shops, restaurants, movie theater etc....
you might also want to check out Delray Beach's downtown area - they have some really nice complexes and anything up and down Atlantic Avenue (or just off) would give you the opportunity to walk with the stroller to the beach! There are a lot of quaint little shops, restaurants etc there as well... plus you'll have the green markets on Saturday Morning and all the street festivals that are great with a little one. I have taken my son, now 3, to a couple of the garlic festivals and one "Delray Affair"...they have great St Patty's day parades etc as well.

West Palm Beach is more "upscale urban" and abutts the Intracoastal while Atlantic Avenue ends on A1A and the Beach.

Just food for thought!
