I am looking into buying a condo in either Royal Park in Oakland Park, FL or Palm-Aire in Pompano Beach.

I am new to the area and I know they are both west of 95, which doesn't matter to me, but seems to matter to others. I am on a budget and they both seem safe, clean and established places. Plus I like that they look Florida-esque.

My question based on those who know—which is the all-around better place to live?

Please voice any opinion that may help.

Palm Aire is 40+ years old now and was designed with retirees in mind which is why it had 5 golf courses though now all types of people live there. They have the horse track/casino directly across the street (The Isle Casino) which can be a plus or minus. It is close to I-95/Turnpike with a decent job corridor on Cypress Creek.

Oakland Park is just a few miles south but OP has never been really great for anything though it is right next to Ft Lauderdale.

Well, I am only a 35 year old male. The condo in Royal Park is 2br—the condo in Palm-Aire is 1 Bedroom. I guess I am more concerned with safety and resale value. I don't plan to live in it for more than 3-5 years. Palm-Aire seems like a friendlier place, but I like the condo in Royal park better.

Both areas are relatively equivalent. I'd give a slight safety edge to Palm Aire, but I'm not a big fan of either area.

Thanks for the input. Is the Royal Palm Isles neighborhood section 8?
