The F section is an established neighborhood, one of the first ones in Palm Coast and highly sought after. You'll find older homes mixed in with the newer homes. But, like I said, it is established. You'll find renters, but not as many as in other parts of the city.
Good luck to you!
I've lived in Palm Coast since 2001, and I absolutely love it! Location wise, I think we have it best. We are close enough to Daytona Beach to be able to enjoy the events, NASCAR, Bike Week, etc. but far enough away to escape the crowds. Historic St. Augustine is just a short drive north, and the beach is just minutes away.
If you would like to provide me with a little information about what you are looking for in a home, I can send you some examples of what's available.

Although our schools have good ratings another choice for public education is a Charter School. Imagine School reminds me of a Montessori type School. They have moral based education, a strong sense of community. Older students tutor younger students and parents participate in school functions. The atmosphere is one of learning and pride. My neighbor who was the town planner for Flagler beach and her Dad a retired principle was very pleased with the education program at the school as well as the school environment. Her children were motivated and happy.
The public schools have a wonderful music program and I am always impressed at their performances. I personally cannot speak of my experience with the education but I do know many children from this area were honored with Bright Futures which allowed discounted college enrollment.
I do know our in State tuition is far less than other States. I would look at the whole picture and make my decision. FSU is an excellent university which offers a large choice of available degree programs. I would compare what other State colleges and universities are offering to their in State students. Education is getting very expensive and putting a large burden on the graduates. It may seem like too far in advance to consider but time will be there before you know it.
In the end you may be living in a place that is a vacation destination to most and home to you.
I hope you find the answers that will best fit your family.
love the http://www.neighborhoodscout.com - very helpful. also check out http://www.discoverpalmcoast.com
I advise you to talk to mothers of kids your age who are in the public school system here and get their feedback. I don't have children in the public school system.
I think Palm Coast is an excellent community with good schools. The City is commited to providing good recreational facilities and enviorment to the people that live here. We have many new schools that are A rated. Employment in this area has been weak but the economy and the building industry is just starting to move again. Jobs are very competetive and it could take a while until you find something you will be happy with. Housing is reasonable and the market is climbing. This is good for you because in your husbands line of work it will mean more employment oppertunities.I moved here from CT and love the area and quality of life. I never looked back.
