My parents and brother live down that way. My parents were in Boca Raton and moved to Lake Worth. My brother still lives in Boca Raton and used to live in Delray Beach. Most towns have their pros and cons, like anywhere else. Florida does have great deals, in my opinion, and this should continue through 2010.
The most important thing right now is that we don't know what YOUR NEEDS are. We don't know if you have kids and what ages (school systems can be critical even if you don't have kids), what commuting needs you might have, what price range is appropriate, whether you prefer a house or condo, and so many other things that we can't guess at.
If you would please outline your situation, then these folks can better understand what might be a fit for you?
