Search for Boca Raton Oceanfront Condos

 

Looking for a Florida vacation home can be mind boggling. Maybe Boca Raton, Jupiter or Hutchinson Island? With so many different towns and communities, where do you start? Friends say go to the West Coast, others said stay on the East Coast. Head North as that is the way the people are migrating. I don't know! First the is quite a difference between the East and West Coasts of Florida. The West Coast has always been a bit sleepy and a retirement community. The winters are colder and the summers are hotter. More mid west buyers seem to head to the West Coast and more tri-state buyers come to the East Coast.  I have had customers leave the East Coast and can't wait to get back to the East Coast.

Boca Raton Beachfront homes

You want to live by the beach but you have a pickup truck, motorcycle or maybe a dog.

It's 2015 they make $75,000 pickup trucks now and Harley Davidson motorcyles are $25,000 plus. You can't believe the condos still have the same rules from 1970. Most of the newer condos are a bit more liberal but those condos are usually over a million dollars. What's your next option? Maybe a townhouse will have less rules but there aren't many along the beach or they are to small. Let's look at beachfront homes.

Palm Beach County Home Sales Report

This week we saw the statistics for home sales here in Palm Beach County. Results are what I expected and in places like Boca Raton or Highland Beach strong buyer demand and lack of inventory has caused prices to rise. The lack of good oceanfront condos is making demand go up and prices to rise. Some of the new asking prices not only in Boca Raton but in places like Hutchinson Island have gone crazy. Asking prices 25% or higher from recent sales in many cases. Sure there are still many oceanfront condos out there for sale but few with direct ocean views. Many are ground floor or lower floor units with more of a view of the parking lot than the ocean. Buyers expectations are high and unlike 2006 where anything sold
