I am looking for a new place in the Boca Delray area but everything seems insane. I'm seeing some new apartment asking over 4k for 2 bedrooms.

Any recommendations for single/40s? I've been looking at newer apartment buildings but a townhome would be nice.

Look south of Boca into Broward County. I also suspect there may be 2BRs in Lake Worth in the mid 2000s/ month price range.

Prices are high this year, but they will drop next summer. Lot of people "escaped" COVID by moving, at least temporarily, to Florida.

Prices won't drop if the cost to buy homes/condos doesn't drop first

Sunsentinel ran an article that was essentially a copy of this article the month prior:

Tenants in bidding war, paying over asking rents

Any "new" place is going to be expensive. If you want "affordable" then you're going to need to look at the older places with the thin, cheap windows, so you can hear every dog bark while staring out at your view of the dumpster in the sun-bleached parking lot.

The newer places are usually built with thin walls or are they built strongr in Florida due to hurricane code

How are you "looking"? I'm on realtor dot com and there are many many in the 2000's. And very nice. First one that popped up was Boca on Federal.

Maybe you have champagne tastes.

Single 40's wants a townhouse? *shrug that's nuts running up and down stairs for no reason. We don't even have that many here. Especially for rentals. I did a search and none came up. FL is big on one story for obvious reasons.

But you can refine your search for that criteria on realtor dot com

I use Zillow. Seeing your recommendation for realtor I went there and attempted to sign up. It seems to be for realtors and requires real estate agency and realtor ID number....... Or am I missing something? Is realtor for people who aren't agents? And if so are there any advantages over Zillow or some of the other apps like Redfin?

EDIT: on the other hand, it does seem to show lots without signing up. Just viewing with out logging in shows plenty of listings.
