First boat help...

I cant say thanks enough to all the knowledgeable sailors that''s help each other on sailnet. I know there are many post like this but any advice would be great.
My dream since I was small was to sail. I graduate from college in the fall of 2005 and want to make my dream a reality. I plan to move to the coast, buy a boat, live aboard, learn to sail, and eventually circumnavigate. I have limited sailing experience so I need a boat that I can learn on and sail single handed. Comfort is not a big issue, but this boat will be home. I was thinking of around 30 ft, but I know there are other things to take into account like displacement. I would love to have my first boat for many years so making the right choice is important. I am going sailing in the caribbean when I graduate, and would love to stay there until I find my dream boat. What should I look for and what price range should I expect. Thanks a lot
