Have you considered town homes? We have new construction in Fort Lauderdale very close to the beach. Town homes give you the benefits of a single family home and a condo.
When you come down, I would be more than happy to sit down with you and review all of your options.
Feel free to view my website to start getting a feel for current and past sales.
Questions to think about..
How far from the beach would you like to be?
How many beds and baths?
One story or two?
Garage or no Garage
How new would the home be...the newer the home, the more expensive.
I am sure you have several other questions so feel free to contact me for a free phone consult.
Ft. Lauderdale, Boca and Delray are all excellent places to live here in Southeast Fla. I live in eastern Ft. Lauderdale, about a mile from the ocean, for many years now and I love it. But since you mentioned Delray, which is a cool little town with a vibrant street (Atlantic Ave.), which features some great villas that feel like living in a home as opposed to a condo or even a townhome. These villas, are located in complexes scattered in and throughout Palm Beach County. Many are duplexes with two car garages, that feature open grounds surrounding each duplex. Many have waterfront canals behind them that lend for great views from the kitchens and screened porches. As I said before, I would to show you both what I'm writing to you about, but I will need you to let me know how much you're willing to spend so that I may search accordingly. So kindly fill out the form below and submit it back so I can begin searching for properties that you would enjoy.

i do not want to live on the west coast. we love marco naples and clearwater beach however we prefer to be closer to the southeast of florida. we have children who are in their late teens early twenties so the proximity to miami is more conducive to our live style.
delray beach and boca sound good.
we are not sure if we will be renting out our home when we are not occupying it so a caretaker and a town home is definitely an option.we are in the accounting field so we will not be there in january thru april. the may thru november will be perfect and probably christmas week. so the idea of income is good but may not be necessary.
we do plan to come in july and check out areas from palm beach to miami. we would like to be waterfront but it is not an absolute must.
thanks for all the feedback so far.
You may want to consider looking for single family homes in Delray Beach or Boca Raton along the Intracoastal
I mentioned Delray Beach because it is a vibrant town that is the envy of every small city in the area. There are a large number of Delray homes on the waterfront available. If you want to rent your Delray home, there is a great deal of demand.
Similarly, waterfront homes in Boca Raton, which is the next town to the south, are also in high demand.
Most people are looking for seasonal rentals from December through March, which might conflict with your use of the home. However, if you're willing to use your home between April and November, you'll be able to derive income from the home during the season, as well as enjoyment during the rest of the year.

A general comment about having interest in South Florida such as yours will likely bring out a multitude of responses from a variety of locations. This is no surprise because there are so many great area for people to choose from and most people here are in love with their choice of locations.
Our recommendation is to plan a visit to South Florida spending a day or two in several different locations on both the east and west coast not for the purpose of buying but gathering information making yourself informed. Explore these locations and talk with the people you encounter about where they came from, their experience here, their recommendations etc.
You are on the right track....but be sure you educate yourself and make your own decision, relying on your insight not that of someone else.

New construction combined with waterfront properties are an expensive proposition as an investment; most likely you will you will not have any positive cash flow....FYI
I own multiple rental properties (since 1987)

If you are interested in a single family home as a vacation rental there are options to have the property maintained when you are not occupying the property. It is not that uncommon as a lot of my clients that acquire properties in high demand vacation rental areas hire property managers that will oversee the maintenance and operations of the property year round. They also offer the option of leasing the property short term when you are not occupying the property to generate additional income for you and your husband. This will help offest the cost of the property management and carrying costs of the property. Please let me know if I can answer any additional questions as well as assist you with your search of your future vacation home.

we would like to be south of west palm beach airport close to fort lauderdale, boca etc. we would like a waterfront community possibly with boat access, and newer construction.
Yes there are many people who own houses in Florida and spend a lot of time up north.
There are many single family homes available. Many homes are in all age communities. Some are gated, and some are not. Keep in mind that having a guard manning a gate usually will result in a higher monthly payment.
Have you traveled in Florida previously, or will this be something totally new for you? If you have friends or relatives here you can always use them as a sounding board for different areas.
Contact me directly with more information about what you desire in a house and I will start the search for you.
