Hi, I love the whole area in West Palm Beach, and Boyton is terrific.
At the price range you search, I would not limit myself to 55 communties only. You will have relatively few choices. But, if you look at communities that hover the 1M range, you will have lots of choices and opptys, particularly as a buyer in West Palm Beach and surrounding areas.
Even if you are not in a 55 community, so many of the communities have HOA, clubhouses, events, etc. There are great support systems for meeting new people and management of the exterior of the properties. I wouldn't limit my search to only 55 communities and have only one or a few choices.....it's a great buyers market with so many opptys.
