I'm thinking of moving to Florida and I'm deciding between Delray Beach area or Naples. I need to work & need to be around singles.

I'm a big fan of the West Florida Coast - Naples and Collier county is a wonderful place. In addition, the entire county is eligible for 100% via the USDA mortgage.

Dear Hyannis,

My suggestion would be to visit both areas, and see which areas suit you the best! They are both lovely cities with gorgeous beaches.

While you are in Delray Beach, it's my pleasure to show you some properties that could work for you...

You should concentrate on getting a job first and I would think there would be more on our east coast than in Naples. Naples has more millionaires per capita than any place in the world so unless you are independently wealthy Fort Lauderdale would have many more jobs.

Definitely Delray Beach! USA Today and Rand McNally named Delray Beach the 'Most Fun Small Town in America!" That's where I lived when I was single. Great night life, restaurants, museums, shopping. I still have a condo there just 1.5 miles off the beach, which was also named America's #1 Beach by Mr. Beach a few years ago. Winner. Hands down! Here's the link:

I am a fan of both areas, but personally I love the east coast of Florida and call Delray my hometown.

I'd love to discuss in more detail, and am happy to help you weigh out the pros and cons of each coast. Feel free to call, text, or email anytime to chat.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Best places are all about personal preferences, budgets, wants, needs, lifestyle; therefore consider further researching areas of interest on your own, and take the time to visit more than once, then determine where your comfort level can best be reached; don't simply just entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you. When it comes to crime/safety concerns, it's best to check with the local authorities.

Moving from Hyannis, MA to Florida is a big change! Selecting a town will play a key role in your lifestyle when you are settled . We live in CT but have a family house in Naples and enjoy our time there very much...however finding a town that meets your needs is a whole different ball game - as it is a decision that only you can make. Sources of research that may help you narrow your focus would be the town hall - but the best advise I can give is to take a trip out and spend some time in the area to see how it fits!
Good luck!
