I've been reading a lot of relocation threads but could still use some situation specific tips. My husband is taking a job off of Northwest 78th Avenue. However, he will be traveling around in Miami and also Fort Lauderdale for his job. He will also have to fly out frequently. I do not have a job in place at this point, but I will be taking the bar exam in February. We have three children 6, 4, 2. So my question is what are the best suburbs that would be convenient between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. We have a budget of around $300,000 max (at least until I find a job) and need good public schools as we probably won't be able to afford private at this point. Any ideas? I appreciate any advice you might have! Thanks!

With 300,000 just on the edge in getting into some of the better school districts. $300,000 will get you a fixer upper in some of good school. If you could stretch it to 350,000 you can get into some of the better areas.

Thank you for your response. Is the $350,000 tag true of condos as well. We would be willing to settle for a 3 bed condo for a while until I found a job. And if we did stretch to $350 what would the good areas between Miami and Ft. Lauderdale be? From what I have seen in posts most of Miami's good suburbs are south.

What is the cross street of NW 78 Avenue? You may have problems finding many 3 bedroom condos in South Florida. You can find 3 bedroom townhouses though.
