Hi, I am looking at Palm Coast for a 3/2 rental, and there seem to be lots of available rentals. Is there a specific area to avoid in terms of crime? I am ony able to pay a max of $800. Also, if anyone has a specific realtor they can suggest for rentals, please PM me. Thanks!

Yes, there are many rentals available whether duplex' or homes, take your pick. What crime there is, is scattered. Not sure about a certain area in particular but as you drive around just check to see how the homes are taken care of in the areas you're interested in. Perhaps you could check out the B, E, C, W, Z & S sections which are pretty close to PC proper. There are 2 different shopping areas, one at the Town Center and the other near PC Pkwy and I-95. Not sure if this is helpful or confusing.

No particular realtor in mind for rentals but there are plenty of them. Good luck and hope you enjoy Palm Coast.

There are some ratty areas in most of the sections. The streets with a majority of duplexes seem to be the worst. They're easily spotted.

Volusia County (Ormond & Daytona) just laid off 75 teachers so I'd imagine they'll be looking for work in adjacent counties, one of which is Flagler. The local newspaper laid off 26 more employees today.

You REALLY need to line up a job before you move. Good Luck!

Thanks, I teach online so I already am working now. I just still don't understand how rentals can be so much $ (I am not finding anything under 950 that is in a decent area) when there seem to be so many service jobs and unemployed people!

Florida is not as cheap as people think.

Default I agree...

Yeah, I agree, I already live in Florida, I was just trying to determine if I could afford to stay in FL if I went to another area....it seems not. It makes me so angry that the polititicans and insurance companies have screwed up things so badly that it pushes out the regular average joe, like me.

And what 'bout these great supposed 'tax cuts'? Didn't mean anything!

I have been considering the move to Palm Coast. I have been looking through the rentals. I stayed in Ponte Vedra Beach last year for work. I loved it but the prices of rentals is sooo much more. I have been in the Mortgage Business that has ended and now waitressing/bartending while going to school. Any waitressing or Bartending positions there in Palm Coast or would I need to drive to Daytona?
