Hi Wendy. All 3 towns have lots to choose from in this market. Prices are way down from 3-5 years ago. The actual building quality and/or amenities, or what you refer to as 'nicer', definitely varies from community to community.
Keep in mind that there's LOTS to do in Boca Raton, downtown, beaches, etc. There's LOTS to do in Delray Beach, especially downtown/East Delray, it's BOOMING. There's very little to do in Boynton Beach, no downtown, no city-center, no beach. I know that they're all close in proximity to one another, but I am pointing out to you specifically what each town has to offer you above and beyond your community development.
