Tax Credit Ends Today - 04/30/10 11:05 AM
The tax credit certainly gave the market a boost and today is the last day to make sure your contract is executed. For the buyers who are close to making a deal today is the day to get it done. Hopefully more programs will be introduced in the near future to further stimulate the real estate market. (0 comments)
Diners, Pizzerias and Bagels in Boca Raton, Florida - 04/28/10 07:51 AM
Many times when people are in town from the NorthEast they have three things on their mind. Diners, pizzerias and bagels. These three items are a given up North but can be a challenge to find down here in sunny Boca Raton, Florida. After spending some time down here below are my picks where you can come close to some of the places up North.
Boca Diner 2801 N. Federal Hwy. Boca Raton 561.750.6744
Tomassos Pizzeria 1229 W. Palmetto Park rd. Boca Raton 561.392.8985 www.tomassos-pizza.com
Bagels With 1732 S. Federal Hwy. Delray Beach ( Just over the Boca line) 561.279.4799 (0 comments)
GMAC Foreclosure Win Reversed - 04/26/10 06:06 PM
GMAC recently had one of their foreclosure wins reversed due to the fact that some of their legal papers were faulty. I guess sometimes the banks are just looking for quick decisions due to the fact that they have so many files to deal with. Another great reason to consult with an attorney to make sure your rights are protected. Unfortunately many people getting foreclosed on have no funds for an attorney but this is something that should be dealt with by a professional. (0 comments)
Tax Credit Ends in 8 Days! - 04/22/10 11:58 AM
The end of the tax credit is in sight and it will be interesting to see just how much the buyer activity drops when it ends. I think it will be alot as many buyers I am talking with, especially in the under $300,000 market are really trying hard to buy just because of the credit. I am sure many will continue with their search but I think the sellers in this price range will stop seeing as many multiple offers. Time will tell. (0 comments)

Boating, Fishing and Scuba Diving in and around Boca Raton, Florida - 04/16/10 12:34 PM
One of the best things about Boca Raton, Florida is the fact that the Gulf Stream comes so close to our shores. This makes enjoying the water so much better above and below the surface. Just take a stroll down to the beach and you will be amazed how many tropical fish you see just off the beach around the rocks and a short boat ride gets you out on the reef to dive or fish. Another great reason to live in Boca Raton, Florida year round. (0 comments)

Exposure is Key to Selling Luxury Waterfront Properties - 04/09/10 08:26 AM
Exposure is the key to finding the right buyer who will pay the right price for your luxury waterfront property. You must expose the property on a global scale and get the interest of people from across the country and around the globe. Buyers from other countries remain very, very interested in buying property here in the South Florida area and along with the buyers in New York and California must be exposed to your property consistently and you can achieve this by being in the correct media at the correct time.

Eden Condominium in Boca Raton, Florida - 04/07/10 09:13 AM
We are all familiar with the Eden Condominium that has been sitting half finished for a long time. Well the good news is that it is now being completed and turned into a luxury rental property. All of the people who originally bought apartments there have been compensated so they can finally move on with their lives. Things started to move with this problem project as soon as the Florida Attorney General got involved. (0 comments)

Boca Raton, Florida End of Season - 04/02/10 07:33 AM
Boca Raton, Florida is packed with people enjoying their time off for the holidays and spring break. The beaches will be packed this weekend as well as the restaurants and other popular activities. The City will start to change next week as the winter residents will continue to return to their summer homes but I expect many people to continue to search for their dream properties and take advantage of the great buyer's market. My busiest months are always June and July as many buyers love to buy during these months. Have a great holiday weekend. (1 comments)
