Moving to FL, Need Advise.
I would've posted this in the regional forum, but traffic here is much greater. I apologize for that now.
It would seem that in a few months time (July/Aug.) I will be moving down to the Floridian Peninsula. Girlfriend of 8+ years is going to start her Masters work in Marine Biology at Florida Atlantic University and it would just be beneficial for everyone if I just moved down there with her.
SO.... Here's my thing:
1. What are the affordable areas to move into near that university or within a small commute? Affordable = housing <$300k and rentals accordingly.
Some place with the obvious necessities ie. Low crime, good downtown area.... etc. Someone recommended to me Boca Raton. I don't think I can afford the $1 Million condos or want to be in the motel looking rentals.
2. Anyone know of the Job Market for Civil Engineers? Gotta find a job, ya know? Looking along the lines of reputable firms in that area.
