Lived in PC for 10 yrs. Be sure to have a job lined up before you move here though. We like it here and have no plans on moving. Great area to live with St. Aug and Daytona not too far away. We are finally getting a lot of the commercial stores here which will be great with gas prices so high. No place is perfect but we do enjoy living here.

Default Hi and welcome to Palm Coast

We have now lived here 6 yrs, went thru a lot of changes. It all started about the time we moved in. Like someone else mentioned if your looking for a job better have one lined up. Not much here, unless you can work from your home. There is retail which does not pay much. Golden Coral is now hiring they are not open yet, and Target and there are a few other business's that will be opening soon. So if your job market is in that field somewhere, you may be able to get in on the ground floor. Construction work has came to almost a complete hault here this past year. That line of work you will be searching high and low for jobs.

As for the neighborhoods, this place is growing fast, many are really good places to live. Some I would stay away from as the crime rate has went up recently in those areas. Ask the real estate people perhaps they can fill you in on the higher crime areas, or our local sheriff's office someone there might be able to tell you which part has more crime.
I would narrow it down to certain streets, cause not all of a section is bad.

Palm Coast is good for being located in the middle of everything. It is close to the beaches and just a hour or so drive to the attractions. If you want to go to Daytona or St. Augustine your there in a flash.

To sum it all up.. we love Palm Coast for the most part. I am not happy about how they are tearing down our beautiful landscapes to build office buildings galore... but I guess progress has its growing pains.

If you have a specific question ask away hopefully one of us will be able to answer it for you.

Again Welcome.

I have lived in PC for over 15 years now and lots has changed - many good, like shopping and services. The only negative is the congestion on the roads- but that is usually during certain times since many of us are not retired YET and need to go to work, so don't be in a hurry on the roads or you will get quite irritated!

As far as renting - gobs of them and some VERY NICE!! Do a google search for RENTALS IN PALM COAST, FL and you should find many!

We still have many folks moving here, so there is still growth...not as rampid as it was 5 years ago but there are still new families moving in.

Jobs? Yes do line one up before coming if you need one. Palm Coast Data is hiring MANY! Do a google search on that as well and you will find contact numbers, etc. Many of the "box" stores like Lowes and HDEPOT have put a hold on hiring until spring, Kohls is opening up in MARCH but I think they are only hiring part-time at this point.

Anything else, feel free to PM me and I will try to assist. I am a teacher here (ADULT ED) through the schools and am getting new students all the time, so like I said, we are STILL GROWING! Great buys on homes right now!! Do it NOW, I would HIGHLY SUGGEST!!! Perhaps rent with option to buy, in case you HAVE to rent for right now.

Also do a PALM COAST search here on this forum - great posts have been made by fellow Palm Coasters!!

WELCOME!
