Hi Betty,
Your price range will direct you to a certain quality, location wise.
Once your professional Realtor knows that fact, he/she should be able to guide you to the best location, within your reach (value/money wise)

Victoria Park is a lovely area. It is close to the beach and Las Olas Blvd. Give me a call and I will see what is currently available.

You have Sunrise by the beach or Las Olas by the Beach are some good areas.

Hi, You can visit and click on the city reports section for in-depth crime stats and complete area demographics. They even have a cool side-by-side zip code comparison feature.

Nice question. However, what you want to spend for a home will dictate the areas that are available to you. I would never want to offer you something you could not afford.

By all standards of best places, in real estate, they are defined as: Location, Location and Locarion. Down in Southeast Florida, what are considered "the best locations" are anywhere along the beaches because of the high demand to own a piece of paridise. Beach locations are, thereby, the most affluent places, and, allegedly, the most secured or the safest.

Are you thinking of renting or buying? Do you want to send you kids to private or public schools? But what will actually determine the areas you will live in is "how much you can afford".
So, you need to figure that out (both buying or renting). Also, if you are relocating, can your employer help you by offering you demographics, school locations, crime stats, and etc in Ft Lauderdale?

Good luck to you.

Hi Betty,

Much will depend on what you consider "affordable" and how large a home you need. Do you want a condo, single family, or townhouse? Do you also have any pets?

For information on safety, you should contact the Broward Sheriff's office, or the Fort Lauderdale police.

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

All that depends on your price point and grade level of your children. I assume they will be going to public schools not private. If you provide me with a little more info I can recommend areas to you.
