Wow, I'm surprised that you said that. I don't think Melbourne has a lot of crime at all. I'm sure like any city there are better areas than others.

Before buying I would look at the flooded (not flood) map. Where all the flooded houses were. If you buy on high ground it might make you a lot less likely to be flooded in the future. You might also find insurance to be an issue in that city. ... more

Hi Diane,

There is a great deal of land, and homes with acreage, some near lakes in the Grant area. You could even have a horse in some of these areas! Grant is located near the intracoastal waterway, is easily accessible and the ocean is a short drive. Perhaps a half hour. Have a look at my website and search the mls for Grant and you may be surprised at the amount of property available. Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you! Best regards, Lou Duncan :o) ... more

Hello, Michelle

Sebastian is a great place to raise kids! It provides a better quality of life for everyone in the family. People are very friendly in this town. I am a Realtor that relocated from Miami to Sebastian. I have lived here for a year and I love it. I know the Ft Lauderdale and Broward area very well and I can truly tell you I don't miss the traffic. Here you find lower property taxes and auto insurance is reduced drastically compared to S FL.

I agree with Maggie from Coldwell that you will probably get a better deal in a house that has already been built as prices have been decreasing so much! I live in the area called Sebastian Highlands close to Rd 512 and by Fleming and there are nice houses in my neighborhood with big lots and even with a pool ranging from 160-220K.

Feel free to contact me if you need more info on the area or if I can be of assistance in finding your Dream Home.
