Depending on your definition of affordable, I would say Broward county. You have the beach close to you, you are by 1 major city, and two semi-major cities, endless shopping, as well as plenty of restaurants, good schools(Depending on which town) 3 airports (Could potentially be a downside) and a commuter rail. There is a lot of traffic though, and being in an urban environment is not what everyone wants.

Good assessment! but do I say Central Florida has more to offer have affordable home for on the low. housing still. Kissimmee Florida has a lot of good deals on a home and you can get a 1/4 Acre with a descent home 1800st for 125k in some cases. $125,000.00

Kissimmee is returning back to life slowly, which is a good thing and is need of fresh ideas and people to make the difference. Just like any trend cycle in a town.

Jacksonville has the best job market in terms of lowest unemployment as well as job diversity, and the lowest cost of living of the major metros area in the state.

Answer is if you have to ask that stay where you are. Don't come here. You can't afford it. Florida is best for retirees, the wealthy and professionals. Wait till you retire and then come on down. Until then, stick close to home and family and employment.

hi guys for houses in FL that got pool, how much do you guys spend a month to maintain the pool? for water, cleaning, chlorine etc. I am looking at houses now and some got pool, wonder if I should get one with a pool and wanna know how much does it cost a month to maintain the pool. pool size for something like this 10134 Deercliff Dr, Tampa, FL 33647 - Zillow

another newbie question, for landscapes on the similar house, you need to trim it I guess, fertilizer, etc. how much time and money is required a month for landscape like that? and if you pay someone to do it, how much would it cost?

(there is a law to keep your house in a reasonable fashion or you will get fined right?) thanks guys!

I love St. Augustine. Its not too expensive to live here, unless you live on Anastasia Island, then it can be a bit more expensive. Especially for homeowners insurance.

Most jobs unfortunately are in the tourism industry so they don't pay much. But it's a nice, historic, beautiful and relaxing town.

I also live in St. Auggie. On the Island. I think people are so negative about transplanted Floridians from "Up North" is because they are really trying to put potential transplants off. We really do not need more transplants. At least not until I want to move and sell my house .

IMHO St. Auggie is the countries best kept secret. I hope it stays that way, I never heard of it prior to an accidental visit, I stayed.

So for all you Northerners that are just freezing to move South (I wanted to say Burning but it did not seem appropriate ), It is absolutely terrible here where we live, there are absolutely no jobs, the schools are terrible filled with drug dealers and child molesters, The Beaches are crap, cold and full of pollutants, Houses are unaffordable, The people are ignorant, crime is through the roof, traffic is intolerable, everything is so expensive you will end up living in a hole in the ground covered with a tarp. So PLEASE bypass North East Florida and go to South Florida (anywhere below Daytona) or to the West Coast. You will not regret it one bit and you will be thanking me for this post for the rest of your life.

By all means visit the historic city for a day or two, stay in a hotel and spend some cash, but please do not move here.

I look after my own, dead easy. On average it cost me about $300 a year in supplies, I have a salt water pool with a chlorine generator.
