Are you kidding me? Realtor.com thinks Boca is the laziest city in the US!

Vintage Boca Raton

I am completely baffled by Realtor.com’s conclusion that Boca Raton is the #1 City for lazy people. In their URL, they actually referred to us as lazy bums! Of course, in the description, R.com actually made Boca sound fabulous. I mean, what’s so bad about this?:

With an average temperature of 77 degrees Fahrenheit and 231 sunny days out of the year, it’s all too easy to be a beach bum in Boca Raton. The southern Florida city known for its wealthy and polished lifestyle is sometimes dubbed “the Beverly Hills of Florida.” And despite its perennial status as a punch line in “Seinfeld”-esque routines about geriatrics, the place has a surprisingly young and chill vibe.

Interested in buying a beautiful condo in South Florida for just a dollar? There are over 10 luxury condos in Palm Beach County that are listed for $1 - $900. Yes, these deals actually exist, but there is a catch!

The catch is that you have to join the respective country clubs, pay the required annual dues, regardless whether you choose to take advantage of the amenities. The annual total costs can go as high as $30,000.

Before you jump at the nearest too-good-to-be-true deal, you need to do your due diligence by asking as many questions as possible regarding the deal. You first have to determine all the mandatory fees and what you stand to gain.

For example, the one dollar condo requires you to pay $10,000 country club membership application

I am pleased to announce that I recently sold a newly constructed Bal Harbor model located at 12163 Glacier Bay Drive, Boynton Beach in Valencia Cove for $738,900.

The Bal Harbor single story model includes a little over 3,100 sq. ft under air and high ceilings throughout. This home also features 3 bedrooms, 3 ½ bathrooms, Great Room, Club or Media Room, 2-car garage and more.

When you picture your dream home, chances are it bears a considerable resemblance to the house you grew up in. A brownstone townhouse straight out of your favorite 80’s or 90’s sitcom. Then again, maybe this is a far cry from what you have in mind. Perhaps you are looking for something fancier. A home with a contemporary style, modern amenities and with a lot less maintenance from the word go.

Or maybe you are still not ready for that whole ‘4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 1.5 kids’ kind of house at all. When it comes to buying a home, the ‘one size fits all’ approach does not work. However, it does pay to know what you stand to gain or lose when it comes to choosing between a new and old construction.

A new house, a whole new you
