Yes, Palm Beach County offers a variety of "snowbird" rentals!

Rentals between November and April are short term, or seasonal, rentals and are typically rented at a premium. Additionally, there is a Tourist Development Tax also known as a "Bed Tax" or "Resort Tax" due on any rental or transient lodging of six (6) months or less.

If you are searching for an active adult community in Boynton Beach or West Palm Beach in which to live with your family, you will find that their bylaws state that at least one owner must be 55 years of age or older.

In addition, almost all have restrictions regarding the age of children who may live full time in the community. That age is usually 19 or older.

Most active adult communities have within their bylaws a clause known as "the 80/20 rule." However, there appear to be two interpretations of this rule, and that interpretation seems to be up to the particular community. These are the ways I have heard it explained:

1. All properties must be purchased by at least one person who is 55 years old or older. However, if that person passes on, his or her heirs may own and make use of the property, even if they are under 55. (Typically this amounts to around 20% of ownership at any time).

2. 80% of owners who purchase must be at least 55 years of age or older, and 20% may be under that age. However, the rules about the ages of children who may live there full time are unaffected and typically stand at 19,

With young children, you will probably need to find a home within an all-age community.

Yes you can buy a condo for $1000 but that may mean that there are Liens against the property for you to pay too. Like HOA dues, second mortgages loans, etc. Search the title before you bid. Some are going for $100.00. ... more
