There are many, many active adult communities in the area. In addition, many areas like Coral Gables offer very pleasant mixed generation housing options.
Housing prices have had a melt down beginning in 2006 that lasted for several years - the median home price in 2011 was $189,000. But the median home price in Miami/Ft. Lauderdale/West Palm Beach area recovered strongly rising to $289,900 by the second quarter of 2015, and was reported to be at $310,000 during the second quarter of 2016, according to the National Association of Realtors. Part of the reason for the recent strength of the market is interest among foreign buyers looking for a safe place to invest.
