 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:

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

Sold Price: $195,000.00

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

Selling a home is a difficult and emotional process and obviously you want to get the highest price possible. There are many factors that affect the price that you will ultimately get for your house. Some of these include: recent past sales in your neighborhood (what appraisers look at), what is currently on the market (your competition), interest rates, and general market conditions. Additionally, you must keep your house in mint “show ready” condition, and make it easy to be shown.

golden triangle

The Golden Triangle represents the neighborhood adjacent to Mizner Park in downtown Boca Raton. Encompassing the subdivisions of Boca Villas, Kings Court, and Whisem, the Golden Triangle neighborhood has become one of the hottest and most desirable communities to live in.

The neighborhood was characterized by small homes built primarily in the 1950’s. Beginning in the early 2000’s, many of the original homes have been demolished to make way for larger, more modern homes. Most of the original homes are now being sold for lot value, as both end users and developers have discovered the potential of living in one of Boca’s best locations.

Located north of Palmetto Park Rd, East of Mizner Park, and West of the Intracoastal, residents enjoy the
