I am an agent in Delray Beach. There are many options when it comes to condos in Delray. If you choose to be east of the intracoastal near the beach prices will be higher as will most monthly condo fees due to hurricane insurance. However, it you would like to be in downtown Delray Beach walking distance to shops and restaurants where a lot of people like to be, your condo fees will be more manageable. If neither of those are important to you, there are communities out west where prices are substancially lower. 55+ communities are another option you may or may not want to consider. I recommend we talk on the phone so I can find out what your criteria are. Then I can send you some properties that match your needs. Check out my we site http://www.sandrastrickland.com. I am a top agent here for over ten years. I'm also a native Floridian. I'd be happy to answer any of your questions!
