Hi Sherry,

The first community that comes to mind that allows pets is and there is no weight restriction (no vicious breeds) is Palm Shores. I live here and there are beautiful houses at reasonable prices. You can also have a truck (depending on size) as long as there is no writing on it. If there is writing on the truck there should be no problem as long as you keep it in the garage.

Leisureville. Yes, the houses are all painted white and lined up in neat rows but some are very inexpensive. We would have to verify the truck issue.

There are also: Avalon, The Cascades, Borgata, Coral Lakes, Indian Spring, Mirror Lakes, The Valencias, and Tuscany Bay.

If you'd like more information on any of these communities you can contact me directly.

If you are searching for a home in West Palm Beach and you would like to check on the various city statistics, go to this site: and search for West Palm Beach.

If you are currently residing near West Palm Beach, you might want to spend some time in that city and specifically around the areas you are interested in. Often, agents are asked if a particular place is a "good" area. The best response to that question is up to you.

If the area gives you what you need in terms of housing size and costs, convenience to shops and transportation, and school system, then it may be a good neighborhood for you. If a property does not give you what you are looking for, then you may want to ask your West Palm Beach real estate agents about other West Palm Beach homes.

Dear Milton,

The town home you in inquired about at 2505 Shoma was a great buy and like the entire south Florida real estate market sold fast as it was priced right. Shoma enjoys a favorable location west of Highway 7 just south of Southern Boulevard and while it has a west Palm Beach address is really in the Royal Palm Beach/Wellington corridor that people flock to for the high quality of life.

Sales in the community are brisk with 9 homes sold over the past 90 days, another 14 under contract and only 5 available listings as of this morning. with under two months of inventory it is a sellers market and prices are finally on the rise after 7 years. And to top it off the inventory is over priced as the highest priced sale in the community over the past 3 months was at $98,000 and three of the 5 available properties are priced above that threshold; one asking an amazing $160,000.

The best thing you can do is clearly define your housing objectives and determine what areas will meet your needs. Inventory levels are very low and finding homes is a much more difficult task than it was a few month ago. If you would like to further discuss your particular situation and put together a game plan to meet your goals please feel free to contact me at your convenience for a complimentary consolation.

Best of luck and if I can offer anything additional please let me know.

Agents can't comment about safety or crime in a particular area. However, the internet is a wonderful thing. Try the town's website for crime statistics.

Hi Bob and Marina!
It's not legal for real estate agents to comment on crime and on "good and bad districts" of any city or areas within a city. I suggest you talk to local residents to get their feedback. You should also contact the local police department. There's also a free website that will give you information on crime:

Let me know if I can help you further with your property search.

Greenacres, FL area is what is the area I am referring to. Finding homes with a tall privace fence would be another route, but good luck finding a listing that states that.

WPB Buyer,

As you might imagine, safe is a relative term, but the published crime statistics where the value 100 represents the national average paint a good picture of the Terracina area. As you can see in each category below the statistics are much lower than the national averages so I would certainly describe Terracina as a safe community. Are there safer areas of Palm Beach County? Yes, but you need to weigh everything in that affects your ultimate goals and make a decision that is right for you.

Total Crime Risk 39
Personal Crime Risk 58
Murder Risk 43
Rape Risk 70
Robbery Risk 19
Assault Risk 62
Property Crime Risk 29
Burglary Risk 42
Larceny Risk 17
Automotive Theft Risk 26

If you would like any additional information on Terracina, or any other properties in Palm Beach County, please feel free to contact me as I would be most honored to help you.

Always at Your Service,

Walter, what is the address of the property you are considering?
Realtors cannot make an opinion of safety in any community.

If you are seeking Crime Statistics, I would recommend contacting the Palm Beach County Sheriff Office.
You may also consider making visits to the area at different times of the day to see traffic, pedestrian, and other things that may not have been apparent when you first visited the property.

If you are using a Realtor, discuss your concerns with them.

Please contact me to discuss your purchase further if you are not being represented by a Realtor.

As in the case of any city living, petty theft can play a part in your life in historic West Palm Beach. Before you consider any area for your home, you should talk with the local authorities, visit with some neighbors as you view the areas and pull crime reports from the local police department. I walk my dog daily and fell absolutely no discomfort, and I ride my bike to the Green Market downtown and I stroll the streets of downtown, it's a wonderful place to live, THE BEST! ... more
