wouldn't consider that a great neighborhood. They are decent size and everything which is too bad.
What area do you need to be in? There are better complexes for that price range.

Thanks for the feedback but could you be specific as to what 's wrong with pipers cay neighbourhood?
I am looking at Fort Lauderdale or WPB.
I also viewed a townhome at North West, 42nd avenue, plantation 33317. Is this a better neigbourhood than pipers cay WPB.

My budget is 80k and HOA about 250/mth

Well you have a distinct advantage over other buyers in that case. I would be looking at bank owned. I also know cash is better for condos as freddie and mac were not backing financing for condos - not sure if this is still true.

There are better locations.... Jonathan's Landing in WPB has some townhomes that fit your critera.

Also, though older, the townhomes at Sandalwood Lakes in the Villages section of West Palm Beach are in a good location.

Further North, I see a listing at Riverwalk in Jupiter for $80k... Jupiter is a very safe area.


DM if you want more info.

OK, I just checked the Crime Reports.

This Pipers Cay is located in the NW corner of Haverhill/Summit which has "no crimes". However, areas East of Haverhill road and South of Summit Blvd have high concentration of crimes. So basically this Pipers Cay area (no crimes) is surrounded by high crimes neighbourhood.
