Houses on the west side of town are easily obtainable in the $250K range and you are less than 10 minutes to the beach. Vero has a small town feel yet has all the amenities you could want. Living on the island is more expensive- start at $500K and up from there.
Great info! Thank you! What's the area like between 95 and 1 south of 20th? I know where I live now, people who don't know this area are bound to preconceived notions (rural = nothing) but when really where we are it's perfectly positioned between everything all within 40 - 45 mins. I KNOW Vero isn't rural but also don't want to live in a cookie cutter area. Friends of ours live in Stuart and all the houses are exactly the same. This face says it all lol - the eyes just need to be twice the size.

Between 95 and US 1 south of 20th Street ? Everything from low income to nice gated communities. A definitely eclectic range of housing ! Most of the gated communities are below 4th Street; the houses tend to get larger and nicer the further south you go. If you haven't visited Vero Beach yet you need to do so, and line up a Realtor to show you around. Vero is a great place to live, with wonderful beaches and nice people, but you need to get a feel for the neighborhoods in person.

You really need to think about this. Florida is horrible and I really hate it here. If my wife didn't like her job so much and if we hadn't laid out a fortune for a home, I'd move out of this place in a heart beat . The weather is absolutely horrible. The heat and humidity is oppressive 9 months out of the year. Unless you enjoy staying indoors most of the year you will regret moving here. I'm originally from upstate NY but spent 25 years in the Army and have been stationed in Texas, South Carolina, Missouri, Massachusetts, & California and this is the worst place I've ever lived. I did spend a little time in Vietnam in 1971 so I guess I have spent time in a place a little more unpleasant. Don't even get me going about the horrible drivers and the lazies police officer. If you think you pay a lot for automobile insurance in MD wait until you get here.

That's so precious you moved to a humid sub-tropical climate then were surprised about the weather.

Keep a positive attitude! Maybe your wife will lose her job so you can leave.

P.S. This thread is from January.

Since that Jan. post I've moved to Vero and love it. Florida weather was no surprise since I did much of my growing up in St Augustine. We have friends and family all over this state, so the heat and humidity were no surprise. Some people enjoy cold, grey depressing weather while others thrive in heat. I travel for work and just returned from 10 days in NJ and although the weather was nice, my last day there was cold, breezy and raining. I couldn't wait to get home. We have family in SC and almost moved there, but the hot and humid summers and winters with ice storms that cripple the state turned us off. That to me was worse than here.
About the drivers: what I've found is there aren't many natives here, but lots of transplants from other states that are known for not being the greatest drivers, so can't blame it it on "Florida drivers".
As for a realtor, I wouldn't have moved here without one, and for that I used a more appropriate website - Realtor.com.
I guess the bottom line is everyone has their ideal place to live. With the all the sources on the internet one would have to be quite naive to not know what they are getting into.
Ok - for anyone that does NOT know this before they come to Florida, it's hot and humid.
