Buyer's Market in 55 Communities : Boynton Beach FL


buyers market in 55 active adult communities boynton beach florida 2022


It's a buyer's market in 55+ communities in Boynton Beach Florida.  In fact, it's a buyer's market in pretty much all communities in this area now.

Yes, you heard that right.  The real estate market has turned in favor of buyers.  

Just a few short months ago, buyers were having a very hard time buying a home.  That is not so anymore.  Now the reverse is true.



There is inventory in the 55+ communities in Delray Beach, Boynton Beach and Lake Worth.   Yesterday, I was in one community that had 10 homes for sale and another with 11 homes for sale.  Just four months ago, there were zero homes for sale in these communities and others like them.

This makes it nice for buyers.  They have choices, once again.   They can view homes, make an offer, have a regular inspection period and closing. 

And much of the inventory is just sitting.



The same is true in all-age communities in Boca, Delray and Boynton.  There is a good amount of inventory and it, too, is sitting.   Same with condos, oceanfront condos, pet-friendly condos and more.  


What it's like to be a buyer in 2022?  It's a great time to be a buyer now!



Everyone has an opinion about the real estate market, and they're entitled to their opinion.  I've been in the Boca/Delray/Boynton/Highland Beach area for 28 years, so I'm going to give you mine.

If you've been looking for a home, now is the time.  If you see inventory and it's sitting, find yourself a great buyer's agent and go for it.  Especially in the 55+ communities.   

Great buyer's agents know where the deals are.  Find yourself one and get to work.



I guess it comes down to time.  When you're young, you know you have time.  When you're looking in 55+ communities, time becomes more precious. 

The last two years and the pandemic have surely shown us this.  If you can find what you want and get a deal, you've done well.   

So, let's go house hunting!

Elyse immediately ‘got’ us

We found Elyse on-line after working with another realtor that was not helping us find what we wanted. Elyse immediately ‘got’ us and showed us the right properties while providing encyclopedic knowledge of neighborhoods, dog restrictions, lifestyle options and benefits/trade offs between one house/neighborhood and the other. Elyse consistently provided important information at every stage of our process. As out-of-towners this was essential to our making the right decision. We couldn’t be happier or more grateful to Elyse for everything she’s done. Elyse is a rare combination of being a true subject matter expert and, more importantly, a genuinely caring person who looks after her people.

Hello Elyse - real estate is always an interesting business because it is so much more than just "business".    It's obviously about buying and selling plus timing, condition as well as all sorts of different factors.  But combined with those important factors is the people involved.  Personalities and emotions play a role.  Finding the right connections between each of the participants in a transaction matter when moving to/from a place.

Hi Elyse, nice to hear 55+ buyers again have some inventory to view!   Our inventory has more than tripled here.

Hi Elyse- that's a somewhat surprising turn of events. And an interesting thought as to why!

Elyse, I am not surprised, I have been seeing this direction for the past five or six months and usually what happens in Los Angeles generally spreads to the rest of the country four to six months later, Endre

Your title of a buyer's market certainly caught my attention since we haven't been hearing of any markets that favor buyer's these days.

Elyse Berman, PA - It is still a Seller's Market here too but I feel confident it is about to shift. I'm seeing a higher demand for the 55+ generation and I have a feeling buyers will be tickled pink when they have the upper hand in FL and elsewhere.
