Renting in Gables Marbella, which we like, but the rents are hovering around $2500, so we're thinking of buying a house in West Boca.

Our budget is in the 275K-290K range. 2250 Sq. Feet. Preferably 4 Bed, 2 1/2 Bath, 2 level house.

I've looked at houses in Pelican Cay, Boca Winds, Lakes of Boca, Mission Bay over the last few days.

Liked Mission Bay a lot, but HOA's are in the low 300s (per month) as opposed to Boca Winds, which is apprx. $125 a month. Not a deal breaker, but we dont need gated communities, just safe ones.

Any thoughts about where the quality people are, where the families with young kids are, the schools, and property values (keeping steady) in these areas.

We've lived here for about a 18 months, so we're getting antsy to get out of our rental.

Thanks.

We just moved into Lexington Estates and could not be happier. Meets all of your above criteria!
Good luck.

Swim: Where is 'Omni'? Is that Omni Middle School?

Do you own a home in Central Boca? If so, where?

This Gables I thought is West Boca. That is Central?
Anyhow Mission Bay has areas of non gated and gated. Did you check to see if the HOA varies from community to community in there?

Yes this gables in considered Central we are past the turnpike...They will be re-districting Middle Schools right past where we live, we aren't affected but my daughters friends will be..They will be sent to Boca Middle Which is East Boca so I guess we definitely are not West Boca....As we attend the Schools here in Central Boca and Not West Boca...West Boca has Sanpiper elem, sunrise park elem, Waters Edge Elem, Loggers Run Middle, Eagles Landing Middle, Olympic Heights HS and West Boca HS
