I would like to buy another condo or townhouse (preferably in Jupiter or Palm Beach Gardens). Can anyone tell me about Fiore (in Palm Beach Gardens)? Is there chinese drywall in the units? What's the community like? How much are the HOA fees? Can anyone recommend a nice townhouse/condo community for me? This is a second purchase so I'm not looking to spend alot but would like to buy something soon. Thanks- I would REALLY appreciate it.

Have you checked out legacy? You can pick up a 2/2 for around 120k and its fha approved. Fiore is pretty nice though, I think the location of Legacy is a little more convenient.

Is there an FEC discount?




Seriously though the HOA there is insane, $331/month for a 2/2. There is little greenspace, so it can't be for landscaping.

Insane? 300 is average for a condo in the area. Insurance, water, ext. Maintenance, pool, fitness center, tennis courts, security, on site manager. Where is this great complex with all this greenspace, lower dues, that you can buy for 120k?

Yes that's too much money for HOA fees, not even man gated 24/7. Rental rates are insane as well $2K for a 2/2, saw one that was on the market for 69 days. I know of places that are way nicer that have lesser rents with more amenities and features and don't have train noise to contend with.

Actually you can rent a 1300+sqft 2/2 for 12-1400 a month. If you are on the east side of the neighborhood the train's not an issue. The convenience of being able to walk out the gate to half a dozen restaurants, shops, and a very nice Greenwise Publix adds a lot of value for most people. It's not the Taj Majal, but with 13-1400sqft 2/2 foreclosures selling in the 120's it's a good value.

You won't find many newer, gated (manned or not) condo complexes in Palm Beach County with dues under $300 a month that offer any amenities.

You obviously don't know what you are talking about.

Doesn't matter if your on the east side, my office is further from the tracks than that and I can hear the train and feel the vibrations, especially when the long hauls come through with gondola cars loaded with limestone.

There are a couple units under $1500/month, one say's "price reduced" I wonder why, must be one of yours, on the market for 74 days.

There is also another unit for $1350/month that's been on the market for 133 days.

Actually there are a number of developments that have manned gates that have lower HOA fees and more amenities, I can name a few but being a realtor I thought you would know that already. I also see Villas with more sqft and a 2 car garage that rent for around the same price and are hard to get and don't sit on the market for 60 days+.

Anyone that pays $120K for a condo is 1 can short of a 6 pack, especially when the prices keep dropping with no end in sight.

Some people want to be close to all the action. Being located on PGA blvd is a huge plus in a lot of peoples eyes.

Hello all. Any recent feedback about this community? I might consider moving here. If one has to pick between the condos at PGA National and Fiore, which one would you pick for a family with a kindergarten kid?
