For most people, choosing the Palm Beach homes they ultimately settle on is a matter of ensuring that its size, design and its price tag all satisfy that particular buyer’s needs and financial situation. However, any reputable Palm Beach realtor will tell you that there are several additional factors you should take into account before making that final decision.
What’s the neighborhood like? Just because you visited during the day and found the neighborhood serene and quiet does not mean that will necessarily be the case during the evening. Make sure you’re fully aware of the neighborhood and whatever quirks it may have.
What potential problems should I know about? Usually a seller will be forthcoming about possible flaws in and around the home as it builds trust but there is no law stipulating such. Before you end up finding out after it’s too late, make sure you know exactly what you’re purchasing.
What are the home utility bills? Air conditioning is pretty much mandatory in Palm Beach homes unless you want to endure the oftentimes sweltering South Florida heat. Cooling costs can be especially pricey during the summer when temperatures are firmly within the 90s and this could translate to a hefty electric bill. This may not work with your other monthly expenses so make sure you take utilities into consideration.
