I posted this in ft lauderdale too...

any info on pompano beach or deerfield beach?
A realtor, who does not work with renters (relocation specialist), told me pompano beach or deerfield beach would be a good midway point between two family members i need to be close to

any info on either of these areas...rent wise, safety wise, any younger people? things to do? etc?? gonna start googling each area too

oh..budget is...absolute ceiling is $1300 for 2-3 br townhome..not interested in the apartment living lifestyle for many factors related to a personal medical condition.

thanks much!!!

man...if you are buying a home...realtors are such a help to you..if you is poor like me and need to rent, they throw you to the wind ;( and leave you to fend for yourself..i understand though that they don't get commission nearly for rentals as they do for sales. but..just so frustrating...

thx for any info!!

Smile Rentals - Pompano/Deerfield

There are many realtors working on rentals.....do you want to be more east (near beach) or out west? Close to I95? Your monthly amount shouldn't be a problem.

You may get more responses if you post this in the "Broward County" section of the forum, as that is where Deerfield and Pompano are.

I had heard parts of Pompano are not so good. I have been to Deerfield on the border of Boca and it seems very nice. I have seen some rentals for near the beach on craigslist. I am not sure though of a townhome in that price range but definelty a condo though I know you stated you did not want that. I think I saw another post by you and you ruled out Boca cause of expense but it was half way between the places you needed. You may be surprised to find something in your price range though again the townhome makes it harder.

thx daniella!!!! yeah...we do prefer th due to more privacy

yes..i too have heard that parts of pompano are not good and that in general it is going downhill. To be honest...i also heard that many people in boca are very snotty...sorry if you live there..i am sure you are a nice person....andi know there are exceptions...where i live (scottsdale, az)..it is nicknamed "snottsdale" or "snobsdale" and most of it does hold up to it's rep for snotty people but i am an exception there..

I agree that where I live is not exactly the warmest of personalities. I knew that though as unfortunatly I have family here who are the definition of what you are talking. I am pretty quiet to myself person though being here has made me speak up for myself. It is hard for me but a work in progress. There are some nice people and coming from out of state like you I needed a place so had to accept the good and bad for the year. Safety is very important. I felt that Coconut Creek and Deerfield seems safe but more down to earth.

yes safety is def a big concern but being i can't travel for friendships because of my stamina...i'd have a hard time cultivating friendships if people typically in that area are the norm and notthe exception...so it's a catch 22. You seem like a sweet person. I am opposite as far as being extroverted...when i am well..i love to meet others and join networking groups, etc etc.....

The synagogue i will be joining is in boca raton...2 of the only type in FL that practices the type of judaism i ascribe to..so praying that they are nice people!!!!
