Any thoughts on Cocoa West? Why I asked because my mom went down there to shop around (new homes) and she told me cocoa west is the final answer to move there. I do have doubts about this town for whatever reason that is... I guess its my instincts. I am 31 and I am very used to lifestyle in NY. There must be dunkin donuts near by, shopping center that comes with grocery store, drug store, pizza shop, auto-zone, bar, chinese food kitchen and more etc whatever you can think of. She was telling me Cocoa West is kinda dead...which I am totally clueless what she meant by that.

My point is that my mom was giving me the impression that its a good investment to buy a big giant house for that price... why.. because its cheap right now with how economy is playing out. She insisted in the near future there will be more stores to be built. In addition to that, Cocoa West is a perfect town which is to get you kinda closer by driving to several populous cities that people been talking about what Florida is all about ( Merritt Island, Cocoa Beach, Daytona Beach, Orlando).

So I need your inputs on this town Cocoa West. I didn't even look around this town to begin with. Originally we were sticking with ideas of moving to Melbourne all year long ( we went there last year mom and me together) I happened to like it. Then all of a sudden mom told me West Melbourne is not like Merritt Island and its lil bit farther out of the way to Orlando. There is something I like about Melbourne which is that when you get right out of the new home development, there are stores everywhere. So again your replies will be truly appreciated! Thanks!

I've never heard any part of Cocoa referred to as Cocoa West. Is she talking about some new developments on SR 520 that is way west of Cocoa? If so I would not move there, because I doubt there would be any new stores built for a long long time with how the economy is, especially in FL (and even more especially in Brevard once the shuttle program ends.) I'm sure there are many deals to be had all over Brevard, so look for them in an area where you want to be.
