Palm Bay Florida Information

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Ed Schlitt

Palm Bay

Palm Bay is a growing community of approximately 100,000 that sits just south of Melbourne and in the Southeast portion of Brevard County or , “The Space Coast.” It includes large tracts of land both east and west of I-95, some frontage on the Indian River Lagoon (which is the ICW or Intracoastal Waterway), and on the east shades into adjoining (and currently more rural) residential areas of Malabar, Grant, and Micco extending south to Sebastian.

The whole area is basically new and is growing at a rapid pace. It’s a young city with an average age of 37 and an average household income over $40,000. New home construction at affordable prices is popping up everywhere. As of August 2005 there are some new homes and condos for under $200,000.

Palm Bay represents not just good real Estate value for prospective homeowners, but also other opportunities which those of you considering relocating to Florida may find attractive. For example, the City of Palm Bay is looking for commercial and industrial development to help balance the residential development that has already occurred within the City.

Finally, for information on employment opportunities please see the Melbourne, Brevard County employment page.
As a place to work and live, Palm Bay has a lot going for it. If you are thinking about relocating here, consider:

Palm Bay and its adjoining areas enjoy some 72 miles of pristine Atlantic coastline, all of it dotted with various public beaches accessible north of Palm Bay from causeway bridges at Melbourne and Eau Gallie or south at the smaller SR510 bridge across the Indian River Aquatic Reserve at about the point of the Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge. This is a beautiful area.

Palm Bay has quite an incredible range of both indoor and outdoor recreational opportunities in addition to these big Atlantic beaches, including sailing, water-skiing, fishing, biking and tennis, golf, hiking, horseback riding and surfing, walking and birding.

With 169 parks, 23 golf courses, and 30 marinas throughout the Area, and not to mention several colleges and universities located nearby and offering diverse educational opportunities, you won’t be bored.

Oh, and one more thing. A quirky and quite wonderful distinction that sets Palm Bay apart from a lot of the Space Coast is its seemingly infinite variety of ethnic foods.

If dining out is something you like to do, restaurant choices range from Middle Eastern to Jamaican to Italian and French and much more. And if that’s not enough, there’s still other choices available in historic downtown Melbourne, a few minutes drive away.

Last but not least, if you (for some reason) need a big city fix, well, Orlando is just under an hour away. For access to the rest of the country and the world, Melbourne International Airport is about 20 minutes away.
