Are we in a bubble? Over the summer it seemed everyone was speculating upon whether or not we are in the midst of a housing price bubble. It is too early to predict a market shift in residential real estate, but there are some common indicators that contributed to the previous market crash rearing their heads again. 

Affordability Concerns

Wage increases have not kept the same pace as home prices, leading to affordability concerns - particularly with lower-priced homes. Additionally, predicted interest rate hikes will continue to affect borrowers’ buying power. 

Supply Concerns

On the other hand, demand continues to outpace the supply of available homes in many markets. This trend leads to increased prices overall. Median Sales Price of

June’s performance for the Palm Beach County real estate market for existing homes largely reflected the prevailing trends that we had seen for 2018 thus far, as revealed in the latest market statistics from Florida Realtors.

The number of closed sales year to date (January-June 2018) did not change from the previous year for single-family homes and rose 4.3% for condos/townhomes.

 If you are thinking of buying or selling a property in the Boca Raton area, you probably have some preconceived ideas about the process. Here are a few of the common misconceptions that we agents encounter:

  1. You should list your house a little bit higher than the market to leave room for negotiating. Anyhow, if it is priced too high you can always lower it.
    Listing your home at too high a price might actually result in you getting less than if you had priced it properly from the start. With virtually all buyers doing research online, they are very well-informed about the state of the market and what prices should be. Buyers and their agents will not look at a property that they perceive as overpriced. The more buyers that see your house, the

Florida is one of only seven states that does not have an income tax, the others being Alaska, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming. Florida has been a popular retirement destination for years because of its great location and climate, but as more people are able to work remotely, the no-tax incentive is attracting non-retirees as well.

Now there is even more of an impetus for people to relocate to Florida with last year’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which limits the deductibility of state and local taxes (SALT) starting in 2018. Some of the states with the highest income taxes are California, New York, and New Jersey. With rates ranging from close to 9% up to over 13%, the inability to deduct these taxes strikes a huge financial blow to

 Sold! A 2BR Townhouse at 6621 Via Regina in Beautiful Boca Pointe

I had the absolute pleasure to help the seller of this 2 bed 2.5 bath townhome located in the Plum Cortina neighborhood of Boca Pointe. I was also lucky enough to have helped when the seller bought this home a few years ago. Working with repeat customers is so great because you already have an established relationship and trust, so it feels like working with an old friend.

Sold! Stunning 5 Bedroom 6 Bathroom New Construction Home in Seven Bridges: 16317 Cabernet Dr, Delray Beach

Sold Price: $1,096,753.00

I had the pleasure of representing the buyers of this gorgeous new construction home located in the luxury Seven Bridges community. These buyers taught me a nice lesson after closing about the importance of taking the time for the little things that matter. Upon returning to the house after closing the buyer stopped outside door to wait for her husband so he could pick her up and carry her through the threshold of their brand new home, something they have done after every home they've purchased together. 

Part of the Atlantic Collection of homes, the very well spacious Annabell model boasts 4735 square feet
