Drag and drop to the roadside camera. It will show you the ghetto first hand.

Go to Goggle MAPS & If there is a Martin Luther King Dr/Ave/Blvd.....any where close you probably don't want to live in that area...Just saying. My broker always told me to go to the school bus stops and see what gets off. Pretty much sums up the neighbor hood.....

Here's a good site for demographics, etc.:

Riviera's not looking so good.

Cashbar is 100% right on....marina grande is the only property west of the intracoastal worth looking at (but the hoa fees are like $900 a month on a 200k unit).

Marsh Harbour, Sonoma Bay and Thousand Oaks all sold in the boom for 250-350k new and now sell below 50k regularly. They were beautiful townhouses built in one if the worst ghettos in the county.

You can fix up the house, you can't fix the neighborhood!

Honda Classic hasn't played there in years......the Mirasol club members didn't want it anymore (traffic, crowds, THE PUBLIC). It has been played across the street at PGA National for the past few years.

Mirasol is tough on sales, the club membership is over 100K and if you buy a house without one you will have to get on a long wait list/can't play there/probably can't sell the house easily. Once you are in, the dues are 10K a year plus what you spend on food/drinks/golf. Add this expense to the 15-20K tax/HOA bill and the cost of the house itself and suddenly it isn't a cheap place to get away to on the weekends anymore!

Mirasol is very beautiful though! Houses range from low 300's to over 2mm.
