Is the Market Starting to Turn to a Buyers' Market
 
In the past two months, but especially the past month, I have seen indications of my market turning more into a buyer's market.  Not everyone may agree; this is my observation of Boca Raton Florida and the surrounding areas. 
 
 
There is definitely more inventory,  I recently listed a house in a neighborhood where there were 10 homes for sale at the time.  We wouldn't have seen that 6 months ago.  Houses were on fire over the summer, so to speak.  List them and multiple offers were coming in.  Now, there were 10.

pet friendly: Gated vs Non-Gated Communities in Delray Beach FL - 05/11/18 02:39 PM
Gated vs Non Gated Communities in Delray Beach FL
 
People are often confused when they come to Delray Beach FL, or one of the neighboring cities, about where to buy a home.  They've seen commercials on TV, their friends have told them about this or that community, but they're really not sure.  It can definitely be overwhelming, especially if you're not familiar with the area.
 
Some people prefer a house on the street.  That's easy enough, if you know the area you want to live in,  and we have them here.  No homeowner's associations to worry about.  No rules to follow, except those … (4 comments)

pet friendly: Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Highland Beach or Boynton Beach? - 03/29/18 10:33 AM
Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Highland Beach or Boynton Beach?
 
Where should I move, buyers will ask?  Boca Raton or Delray Beach?  Highland Beach or Boynton Beach?  What's the difference?  My friends told me to look here or there.
 
Well, there are some differences between them, but first you have to figure out what you want in a condo or house.  They are all close enough that if you want to go out to eat or to a local vet, you'll be fine.  
 
If, for example, you want to live at the beach, then I would suggest you look into Boca Raton, Delray Beach or … (6 comments)

pet friendly: Here We Go Again - 01/06/18 04:08 AM
Here we go again.  It seems I can't get away from it and nor do I want to.
 
I was standing on a street in Valencia Cove in Boynton Beach FL with buyers who had just had their offer accepted on a house. 
 
 
A man came walking down the street, and the buyer stopped him.  It was the usual, how do you like the neighborhood, where do you live, etc.
 
This gentleman was very accommodating and patiently answered the buyer's questions.  As he was about to leave, I noticed he was wearing a baseball hat from New York City.  Being from New York, my first … (21 comments)

Best Business Practices from Court Reporting to Real Estate
 
While going through a bad time in my life, I enrolled in court reporting school at the urging of a cousin and a friend.  Court reporting changed my life. 
 
When I was about to enter my last class 200--225 words per minute, the school went out of business.  I told them, You can't; I'm not finished yet!  New York state came in to sort things out.  They transferred those who wanted to finish the course  to another school, while others left to become legal or medical secretaries.   They brought teachers out from … (11 comments)

Hey there, we're Gundi, Tash and Boris.  We moved to Boca Raton, Florida because our mom and dad told us that's where we were going.
