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.

Condos in Boca Raton For Sale

Random

We continue to hear about the recovering real estate market around the country. Since 2006 when the Florida real estate market hit prices never seen before buyers were scurrying to purchase  any property that came on the market. What I have seen with this recovery is a different buyer and buyer's mentality. No longer is the buyer a highly leveraged buyer but nearly 3/4 of the buyers today are paying cash. The other difference is today's buyer is more selective than ever and they will wait till that perfect property comes along. I continue to hear many potential buyers feeling that we are due for a correction in the real estate market. With many communities still 30% below peak 2006 prices I still continue to feel upward

Buying a Condo in Boca Raton

Boca Raton condo living

Many buyers start looking at condos as an option when considering a move to Florida. I get many questions regarding a condo purchase vs a single family home purchase and the benefits of each. Here are a few quick tips to remember when purchasing a second home here in Florida. Remember it is a vacation home, your not stuck in it all winter long like up North. You are out golfing, tennis or boating. You are going out to dinner and out for entertainment. It's a vacation. How big a condo do you need. Do you ask for a 2000 sq. ft hotel room when going on vacation. Of course not. So remember that when purchasing a wintyer residence. It's not your full time home.

Highland Beach Waterfront Condos

When customers ask about Highland Beach I am very surprised they have heard of the small little beachfront community. Most people usually know someone living in Highland Beach or just stumble across it. Before moving to Florida in 1979 I had never heard of the town except my grandparents retired from NJ and moved there in 1971. It was time to head off to college and what better place than Florida. Warm weather, beaches and girls in bilkini's. Spring Break in Ft. Lauderdale was the rage and I remember reading about it in a car magazine about cruising the strip.

Looking to buy oceanfront condos in Boca Raton FL

My favorite show as a realtor is Bravo TV's Million Dollar Listing New York and the newest series Million Dollar Listing Miami. After watching the series I can't believe how inexpensive Florida real estate is here in Boca Raton and Palm Beach County compared to New York or Miami Beach. Of course my favorite character is Frederick on the New York show. He is always amusing and a get a great laugh out of him and he never holds back. He tells you like it is no matter if you want to hear it or like what he has to say but he is always right. After watching a season of Million Dollar Listing New York of course I had to watch the Miami show as this in right in our backyard. Miami had a building boom condo
