Hello everyone!
I am moving to the area soon and want to avoid the sketchy neighborhoods in Pompano Beach as well as Deerfield Beach. If anyone can guide me to zip codes and neighborhoods to avoid, I would appreciate it! I have no children so that's not an issue.

It depends on what your idea of sketchy is. Generally, anything east of Federal is good and west of Dixie not so much. In Deerfield, north of Hillsboro and west of Military is good also.

Pompano has a bunch of weird rules, zoning and code enforcement, that might bother you as a homeowner but maybe not as a renter. Deerfield does too but not as many.

I've had the same question, Deerfield seems to be very affordable and I've seen some complete remodels, older florida style no HOA homes going for upper 200's lower 300's. For that price, I can't see that the neighborhoods would be undesireable. We are looking to move back to Florida next year, lived there in 2007-2008 right as the housing boom started to bust.

Agree with TreeZoo on good and bad areas. The Deer Park area north of Hillsboro Blvd and west of Military Trail is pretty good. In Pompano absolutely avoid anything west of Dixie Hwy. The only slight exception is the Palm Aire country club, but that is more of a rental area.

If you are willing to live further west, check out Coconut Creek. It is the next suburb west of Deerfield Beach. There are more decent neighborhoods of newer middle class style housing. It does not have the Old Florida feel of Deerfield/Pompano and is further away from the beach, but you may have more options to choose from there. Good luck.

Cypress Bend in Pompano is decent too, it is next to Palm Aire.

Bumping this.

My little sister just landed a decent job in hotel mgmt on Deerfield Beach.

She doesn't have the best car at the moment so if possible I'd like to help her find a place within 5-7 miles from the workplace.

Any area recommendations? It seems like Deerfield gets a bad wrap but the past few times I've visited it seemed pretty laid back and blue collar to me.

It is seven miles from the beach to 441. That covers an awful lot of area. On the other hand, the season will be over soon, she might be able to find a room right on the beach but have to be out by October.

I think there are some specific cities in Florida for this post since this is Miami.

Waters Edge on the corner of Green Road and Military Trail is a pretty nice complex. It's a central location in Deerfield and is less than 5 miles from the beach.

Where area of Deerfield is her job and what's her budget?
