On my last visit to family in FTL I began to drive around looking for a place to retire. My wife and I liked the look of Coral Springs- not as beachy or sun drenched like other areas we looked at. I heard the area is pricey? My plan is to find a modest priced apartment to rent while house hunting. Can two seniors on a limited budget afford Coral Springs?

Your post is vague. What is your definition of a limited budget? Coral Springs is one of the least expensive areas to rent in Broward County, but home prices may be more on the pricier side. It just depends on what you're looking for.

What you probably saw in Coral Springs is the results of the federal designation Tree City USA. Coral Springs and Parkland have this unique designation. The amount of landscaping, oak trees planted in medians, strip plazas and neighborhoods, and most of all no neon signs! The small business owners don't like it because you can never see what is in the plazas but it sure gives the city a great look! I would say a nice home with a pool starts around $225,000 right now. So not sure what your definition of pricey is ?

I hate how the shopping centers are so uniform. The McDonalds cannot even put up golden arches. Never thought that look was appealing. I understand not wanting neon lights though, but I do not think painting all business signs and exteriors the same color looks good.

Is it possible to rent a small apt for two seniors for less than 1000 a month while we are searching.

OH, are the prices going up or down in CS like the rest of Florida

Coral Springs is one of the better cities in the Broward Area. It's civilized and neat. Yes there are pockets of Black sketchy areas, but overall it's pretty good. Best of luck!

Rents may be cheaper in Sunrise Lakes or Tamarac. There are a lot of retiree 55+ communities there. You could probably rent for 1 year or 7 months until you have time to search the area.
