Hi June! This is where I do 90% of my business, so here's my answer.
Both Delray Beach and Boca Raton have lots of pluses, tons. As long as you choose a decent neighborhood in either one, you'll be fine. I don't know from your question if you're buying for investment or otherwise. Delray Beach has a booming downtown, Boca has LOTS to do and is rich in history and tourism.
Lakeside Blvd. happens to be located in Boca West. "Is this a good area?" you asked. YES, it is....but there is a 'club equity fee' which needs to be paid at closing. It costs $70K and that's why you're seeing such low prices on the units themselves.
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you!
