If you had to buy a house for under $100K in the Miami area, and wanted to avoid the "bad" areas, which cities/areas would you search in?

Eastern Cutler Bay (east of the turnpike) is a decent area and I've seen some great bargains there (one foreclosure was running for $78,000). Generally though most areas won't have decent homes for under $100,000.

In the decent areas, homes are around $250,000-$350,000, in the lower income areas, such as Homestead and Cutler Ridge, there are homes for your price range. But they have high crime rates.

You should try areas such North Port, Cape Coral, Port Saint Lucie, Tampa, Orlando, Palm Coast, St. Augustine, Tallahassee, or Lakeland.

This is for North Port, some nice homes for under $100,000, 3 bed, 1.5 baths, .25 acre lot.

A decent home under $100k in Miami would be a walled, gated, K-9 protected trailer or modular home on a half an acre in the Redlands.......

You can get your monetary goal- but the other goal depends on your definition of "safety"

I don't even think you can get a home for $100K in any area in Miami!

You can- a forclosure- there are like 50,000 of them in all different areas. Just be very careful when buying one.
