I love both Jupiter and Tequesta I prefer the latter if you can find affordable housing. But yes the keeping up with the Jones' is a huge issue that was not before all the "new residents" took hold in the past 8 years. If your not like that then great if you are have your pocketbook ready!

TRiMT7, thank you for the info on that area. We're actually considering Palm Beach Gardens , well, we saw a listing that's about 15% more than we had intended to spend, and with less land, but it looks so nice that we're coming over to the east coast next week to look.

It's been 8 years now on the west coast and sometimes I feel like I didn't move here, but have been sentenced here

That's about to change.

Well, if you're looking for some homes with land, you can check out the Jupiter Farms area, or the Palm Beach Country Estates area, both near Gardens. Some good deals in those areas right now.

Even in the past 8 years the county has changed and grown so much. Some bemoan it has having changed for the negative. When Florida emerges from the recession, however, I think people will see that it's gotten better (crime is down, more amenities, better highways, etc.)

Thanks. I'm not into the land anymore. I used to own a place in paddock park 1 wellington which the entire 1.09 acres was professionally landscaped. Talk about upkeep! I don't want to go thru that again.

But 1/3 acre or even a 1/2 would be good.

With what's going on over in the acreage I would rather avoid wells too. I had one in Paddock and it was fine but I'd prefer to not have it now. Funny, our most basic need, water. Most counties and cities add so much chlorine that city water is dangerous to your heart and vascular health. But wells are even worse here. It ain't the Pocono's. But still I'd prefer the city with a good whole house filtration system.

Oops, and there I start to ramble

We've lived in Abacoa for 10 years and don't care for it. Unless you have kids and your wife drives a large SUV while walking around in yoga pants for most of the day, you won't fit in.

Very boring neighborhoods, zero lot line housing, and a town center that is mostly empty.

Reminds me of Scottadale, AZ or Orange County, CA with humidity and a tackier element.

10 years is an awful long time to continue to live somewhere you don't care for.

I agree but the house was paid off and we were waiting to make the big move back to the west coast.

I wish I had moved to Jupiter, but it is a long drive to work.

A friend lives in an older area with streets named after Native American tribes. It is really lovely; she is on a mangrove estuary/canal. She just throws her kayak in and goes!

Juno is lovely too.

If I had to do it again, I wouldn't go south of that area.
