Dear Dunstan,

Tropic Palms is an older subdivision with a variety of homes built as early as the 1950's and as late as the 1980's with most of the homes built in the 1970's. Safety is a relative term but your best bet is to speak with someone at the Delray Beach Police Department and you will find them to be most helpful with crime statistics. You can call them at 561 243-7800 or stop by and see them at 300 West Atlantic.

Road noise in the community is something to consider especially along the western border which backs to I-95. Also carefully evaluate the condition and features of each home as they vary widely in Tropic Isles and have a great to do with true valuations.

Overall the market is very strong in Tropic Isles with 16 sales over the past 6 months and another 7 homes under contract. There are only six active listings so inventory is low at 2.25 months which is solidly in the seller's market category with pricing pressure to the upside. Consider the median sales price over the past 6 month is $163,500 and the median list price on active listings is $299,450 and you see the need for detailed analysis of each home.

I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Always at Your Service,

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Tropic Palms is a nice area in Delray Beach, FL. with close proximity to downtown Delray Beach, Boca Raton, and the beach (Linton Blvd or Spanish River Blvd bridge access).

How safe is the area? That is a tough question, and not one that I can put a number on. I would say "safe". Check with the city of Delray Beach for crime rates, etc.

This is an area with single family homes, not gated, no HOA fees, and is a great place to purchase a house. It is in East Delray beach- East of I-95, and is close to everything.

This is an up and coming area, and prices have been rising in the Tropic Palms area over the last two years. The inventory for homes for sale and rent is limited, and if you are looking to buy a single family home, with low overhead, it is one of the best options around.

I have owned a home in Tropic Palms for about 18 months now. The house is used by my family and rental guests and only occupied part of the year. I have had NEVER had any indication of trespassing or vandalism. We have had furniture on the porch and back yard with no issue. The neighborhood is eclectic but very quiet and I believe to be very safe.
