We are planning to relocate to Palm Coast from Miami. We are looking for a quiet nice neighborhood to build and retire. We do not have children just a small dog. Is the Quail Hollow area a good area to build. ... more

If you can afford it you want the new "C" Section. (Not the historic "C" section. ) That is where the people with a lot of money live

Palm coast before the crash of 2008 was an area that saw tremendous building of beautiful homes in almost every section. It was touted by the real estate market as "One of the best new places to live."

Then came the housing bubble and hundreds if not thousands of families lost their homes to foreclosure. That's the bad news.

The good news is homes that were selling in 2007 for $350,000 to $450,000 lost more than half their value. Brand new 4 bedroom, 2 .5 bath, 2800 square foot homes can now be bought for $169,000 and up.

You did not mention what you do for a living. Jacksonville is a major city a little north and about a hour commute from Palm Coast during rush hour. Next major city is Orlando which is south of Palm Coast. You are talking a major commute each day.

Middle Class areas that are still very good are the new parts of the "F" Section, parts of the "L" section and parts of the "B" section. The "E" section in 2007 was one of the most exclusive sections. But the Town Center never got built with the crash of 2008. Beautiful homes but the "E" section was getting hit by burglars.

The crime in Palm coast is mostly caused by drug users.

One thing Palm Coast does have is an excellent Sheriff's Department.

If you do decide to come down make sure your children will end up in Matanzas High School. The place is only 5 years old and a very modern school. Great group of students. Very seldom do you hear anything bad coming out of Matanzas High School.

Hi Monica,
You can also try, There are links there, including one for the Chamber of Commerce, that may be useful. As for wages, I've found around $10/hr to be the average starting pay, but experience can add to that.

In the area of construction, there may be some good opportunities. I've noticed an increase in new construction starts, and there are a lot of short sale and foreclosure homes that could be a good source of renovations.

As always, if I can help in any way, please feel free to contact me directly.

Let us all "hope for change" in 2012 with a new administration. The policies of whatabummer and his cronies have put America at risk of becoming a third world nation. For a start at this time...please join the Flagler County Tea Party organizarion, already over 1,000 strong!..that's Taxed Enough Already...and write your Senators and Congressmen to Drill Here and Drill Now and take advantage of our nations abundant resources...and move to Repeal thr ObumaCare Law that will further bankrupt our already bankrupt nation. The spending and incompetence of the current administration has to stop. They can't even pass a budget for last year no less! Our country voted the Obumma administration into office, it's high time to take charge and vote them out! ... more
