Hello Erica.
I'm a real estate agent for 9 years. I am a mother of 2 young boys and I can relate to your concern. With my expertise in selling properties all over Palm Beach County and Broward County, Boca Raton is a very nice city to live in, if you prefer Palm Beach County. At the $200,000 price point, this will qualify you for a townhouse or villa and would be an older home because it is an older city. If you choose to live in Broward County, I would suggest, Parkland, or the north end of Coral Springs, where the homes are newer, although, you are still at the townhouse price point. Note that the next city north of Coral Springs is Boca Raton. They are 15 minutes away from one another although they are two separate counties. Hope this information helps you in you search for real estate. If I can be of anymore assistance, please do not hesitate to call me. Best Wishes.

As a Realtor, we are not allowed to recommend one area over another especially when it comes to neighborhoods,schools and safety. That is considered steering. Highly recommend that you do your homework on the internet or talk to friends or neighbors that might already live in that state and talk to the local police station as far as crime and safety concerns.

The best schools in south Florida are in Parkland and right now there is a Carriage Home in Parkland Terraces for $199 probably the lowest price in Parkland. In fact Forbes magazine rated Parkland schools #1 in the US for bang for the real estate buck !!!!

Second to Parkland schools is Coral Springs and you can get many townhomes or condos there for 200.

Regarding schools and overall raising a family, Cooper City & Weston have traditionally been rated amoung the very best in the nation per ratings by House & Gardens.

Hi Erika,

You should consider Boca Raton. Boca Raton has some of the best schools in the state.

If I can be of further service please contact me directly.
