Palm Beach Gardens' area homes sales were generally higher in the first quarter of 2011 compared with the first three months of 2010, but prices declined as distressed and lower priced properties continue to have a major impact on the local real estate market.
During the first quarter of 2011 more than 400 homes sold in Palm Beach Gardens with 75 percent of these priced at or below $300,000. A year earlier, about 275 homes sold in the same time period with 63 percent priced at or below $300,000.
Lower priced homes are selling well and as sellers reduce prices, or distressed homes come on the market, more properties are falling into the lower priced categories. It is an exceptional time for buyers to purchase a new home, vacation home or the home of their dreams. Prices today are about where they were in 2002 and it is possible to find outstanding values in many of the area's finest communities.
Looking at several Palm Beach Gardens area communities of interest to our clients, in Steeplechase, there was just one sale during the first quarter of 2011 and that was a foreclosure.

Some are on the market, others are not. There are 24 homes on the market in Steeplechase in early April 2011 with seven priced at or below $700,000.
