We've launched our video series, answering questions from our social media followers and friends about buying and selling homes in Palm Beach County. 

One of our first questions came from someone we know peripherally, and it's about their home for sale in Boca Raton. They received an offer on their home which is a contingent offer - contingent on the buyers selling their home. We offer them some guidance here on how to evaluate the offer. What factors would we look at if we were representing them in the sale of their home? 

Take a look!

July 2017 Market News from FL Realtors® and the Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches 

July 2017’s Palm Beach County Market Reports were released this past week - from both the Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches (RAPB) and Florida Realtors (FR). They give us some valuable insights into the real estate market in Palm Beach County and we’d like to share them with you.

The resale market for existing homes in Florida continues to increase in 2017. The median sales price and number of sales are higher than where they were this time last year. This is extremely positive since - at many price points - we have an inventory shortage which is, in my opinion, is holding the market back.

In June 2017, we saw that the inventory varies drastically at

About 3.2 million Canadians visited Florida in 2016 - representing the most visitors of any country. Buyers from Canada comprised 6 percent of all South Florida international homes sales last year, according to The Miami Herald, which also calls Florida "the Beach of Quebec." 

Currently, Canadian visitors to the US can be here up to 182 days per year, which is roughly six months. That time may be extended for Canadians who own or rent a home here, due to the pending status of bill that was introduced this past week. 

Florida Realtors reported on July 28 that "U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Florida) and Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-New York) introduced the "Canadian Snowbird Visa Act" into the U.S. House."
