Gloria listed this property in Montoya Estates in the Montoya Circle neighborhood in Boca Raton. It is a three bedroom home with a garage which was converted to a fourth bedroom. It is in a great location walking distance to Boca Raton Synagogue. The house just sold for $245,000 in a short sale.

house in broken sound 

I just sold this gorgeous courtyard home in the Courtside subdivision of Broken Sound Country Club. For those of you who don't know the lingo, a Courtyard Home is one in which the swimming pool and patio are in the front of the house. You usually enter through the entrance doors into a courtyard and then the front door of the house is through the courtyard. Many courtyard homes in Boca Raton have detached guest houses as well.

With short sales making up over twenty percent of all Boca Raton real estate listings, and over thirty percent of those listings under $400,000, it is time to answer some commonly held questions and misperceptions about short sales.

SHORT SALE MYTH #1: Short sales take 9-12 months and do not get approved.

I have been spending some time examining the Boca Raton real estate market and the underlying statistics of what is happening in our area. I think it's important to discuss the market in terms of price bands, as we have a wide range of inventory and price ranges in our local market. As an example, I have analyzed the current situation for single family homes in Boca Raton, in various price ranges. Check out this chart below:


What is most interesting to me is that the number of months of inventory for homes priced between $750,000 and $999,999 is a whopping 92 months! Only two homes in this price range sold in February 2010 out of 193 listings! Not that it's so great for homes over a million, but they are actually faring better, with 45 months supply.…
