Yea Davie is definitely not country western movie material anymore. It still has charm, but its changed. Thats east Davie anyways. West Davie is beautiful. Land, horses allowed, great county parks, etc. I live in mid-Davie. But always take a Sunday drive to west Davie to appreciate what south Florida used to be like. Schools shouldnt be a problem as many up-scale communities feed into those schools. Ive heard good things about western as well, and the private school at Nova southeastern. It is expensive to live there. I'd say average property taxes are around $6000 a year w/o looking at statistics. Properties range from around $650k - 3 mill +. Even in this lower market. The land there you can only find in 2 other areas of broward. Parkland, and Plantation. Maybe parts of Coconut creek. Enjoy your search, im sure you will find it easy to call home.

Default Davie - West

Hi MrsGHenderson,
I am currently helping a couple settle in the area, and we looked at many homes with land in the Davie area. The area is a mixed bag of property sizes, more rural than suburbs, a distinct horse country signature and homes in varying age, style and taste.
If you want land for the sake of land, the high $400s will fetch you something around an acre, with a home that needs updating. The higher the price range, the better the options.
The area is fairly well situated - central to Broward, and close to the main roadways.
Schools in the area include those mentioned, University School at Nova, American Heritage, Western High School, but also Bishop McCarthy High - go to greatschools.net to look up the areas schools with feedback from parents.
Best Regards,
Attila Laczko
