Very quiet, for the most part. You can verify, online, that the crime rate is rather low... Depending on the area you plan to buy the home, neighborhoods appear to be "mixed" with single family, mixed and multi-family homes and apartments. I have lived in the area for about 5 years, was not initially impressed buy the appearance of the immediate area but it is easy to feel at ease here, depending on where you come from. Let's put it this way, if you lived in Los Angeles, you would hear helicopters and sirens daily and if you lived in New York, there is the constant noise of the never - ending- city... the area is almost eerily quiet. As far as walkability is concerned, sidewalks are going up and there seems to be an attempt to make it more hospitable to pedestrians but it is not clear whether the intent to keep it quiet or to offer more accessibility to Downtown Coral Springs. Honestly, it is not a bad area to live if you just want to go home and have some peace and quiet but it could be so much more. I stay because my landlord is great and the area is comfortable. I will eventually leave for a more walkable area and neighborly environment... It needs a "draw" or some interesting lighting like Culver City, California to encourage people to get out of doors and mingle. Just my humble opinion. Hope it helps. ... more

Yes it is because Parkland has wonderful schools and families will continue to move to the area because of that. This will help to hold the value in your home.

The city of Coral Springs is run as a municipal corporation, with a bi-annual business plan that implements the 3-4 strategic initiatives passed by the City Commission. So the budget becomes a tool to implement the business plan instead of the tail wagging the dog. This is the result of the effort of the administration, the elected Commission, and volunteer advisory committees over a span of at least 12 years to earn selection by the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award for Excellence that Sophia Cagan cited.

Where people choose to live, work and raise a family is in effect a vote in favor of the basket of public goods and services their community provides. In this light, living here is a great choice.

Welcome to the "world of real estate." You are beginning your new career by asking the right question because understanding that your professional growth and agent that you will become depends heavily upon your continued collection of real estate knowledge. So making your choice based on a company's commitment to agent training is very important.

If I could provide you with a valuable tip that could make an important impact is to find an agent or agent team that would be willing to take you on and mentor you. This experience will offer you "in the trenches" type experiences with the benefit of experience and expertise to guide you. There are so many helpful things that you could do that would also contribute to you getting off on the right foot.

Best wishes,

You can get a good idea by checking out Craigslist, for annual rentals anyway.

Hi Toby,

Here's a very good site about living in an HOA community:

What some HOAs are doing is going ahead and foreclosing on properties (even if there is not equity because the first mortgage stays and is higher than the market value) and then immediately renting them out. You may want to attend your board meetings and suggest they do this--otherwise the owners who are paying will get stuck with paying their neighbor's fair share! Also a recent change allows an HOA to collect the back due assessments from a tenant. Your board of directors is probably taking the advice of a hired property management firm and unfortunately some of these companies do what is in their best interest and not the association they manage. Take an active role and start attending your board meetings to find out what your volunteer directors are doing to tackle the delinquent homeowner issue.

Hope this helps.

Happy New Year!
