Are you thinking about moving to Plantation, Florida, but aren’t sure where to settle? In this episode of Hearty Home, I’m going to share the top 3 family-friendly neighborhoods right here in Plantation. We’ll look at each area’s location, amenities, and housing prices so you can choose the one that’s right for you.
The first neighborhood you need to check out is Plantation Isles, a community nestled south of Peters, north of 595, and west of the turnpike. One of the reasons why people really like living in this neighborhood is because they can have waterfront without paying oceanfront prices. Many of the homes on Plantation Isles are waterfront with ocean access. So if you want to spend the day out on your boat and then dock in your backyard, this is one area you need to check out.

This neighborhood is known for being owner-occupied, which means there are very few rental opportunities. This makes for a very stable neighborhood. Many of the homes here are four or five bedrooms with bonus rooms. Did somebody say playroom for the kids? The average three-bedroom single-family home in this neighborhood is roughly about $620,000. If you're looking for something a little bit bigger, a four-bedroom single-family home is about $700,000.
