hi Harriprem,

The easiest answer is you can get a big house or a small condo it all depends on location, location, location.

The best answer is:

1. How many bedrooms do you need?
2. Is there a need for a school consideration (elementary, middle, high school, university?
3. Do you have pets?
4. Do you want to be 5 minutes to the beach, downtown, shopping?

I suggest you start working with a Realtor, answer these and few more questions and soon you will have the home that is right for you.

Thank you and if we may be of service: 954-336-5156 or visit:

Hello Harriprem

What are you looking to get ?
Depending on the area, you may get a 3 bedrooms house, or just a small condo near the beach.
Are you married with kids, and need 2 maybe 3 bedrooms, or maybe a student that a 1 bedroom may work. Are you moving into town for work, and is the commute to and from work important ? or maybe you are an investror, and need something to rent, and would like a rental income ? Please provide more info

Where in Florida do you want to be? Are you looking for a primary residence, an investment, or a second home? All depends on your "likes" and "wants".

Hello Harriprem,

Depending on what area you want to live, west of I95 you might be able to get a house but on the east side of I95 you are looking at a condo for that price point. If you are looking for the Florida lifestyle...beaches...downtown...restaurants and shopping (not chain type of places) you will want to be on the east side. If you do not care about the water or the beaches and the local lifestyle the west might suit you. When you you possibly looking to relocate?

Take care!

Pretty much whatever you want. House, Townhouse, Condo, etc... The variables are size, location and condition but as Steve said the longer you wait the less you will be getting for your money. Good Luck!

Depends on your taste.

Do you have Champaign Taste and a Beer Wallet? Or do you have Beer Taste with a Beer Wallet?

Either way, you had better buy something now as these home prices are shooting back up!
