The Palm Beaches - living in paradise

Living in Paradise. The Palm Beaches. The essence of the good life. Sunshine, palm trees, beaches, golf courses, world class dining, unique boutiques, the list goes on and on. Throughout the world everyone knows about South Florida and it means so many different things to just about everyone who one day dreams of their own slice of paradise.


The amazing thing is you do not have to be a millionaire to enjoy your own home in the sun. During 2017 more than 32,000 properties have sold through the real estate community in Palm Beach County. Sales prices that start under $10,000 and go all the way up to $50 million dollars and beyond. The point is there is a place for everyone with a dream and a well designed game plan to get there.

Stretching from Boca Raton to Jupiter, Palm Beach County is home to well over a million people and a multitude of lifestyles. Many of our residents never step on the sandy beaches while others never miss a day dipping their toes in the water. Surfers who never would think about picking up a set of golf clubs. Golfers who would never dream of kayaking up the Loxahatchee River. Those who rarely leave the confines of their gated communities to those who wouldn’t even consider living in a community encumbered by a homeowners association.

How does one begin to find that perfect home in which to laugh, entertain, cry and experience life to its very fullest? The answer is not an easy one and mistakes in real estate can be very expensive, especially in South Florida where home prices have been know to move both up and down with crazy, wild swings. It is easy to find price moves of 30% in some market segments in a single year. Both up and down.

Find a home that will not stretch your pocketbook too thin in a location where you will find the lifestyle you are looking for. It really is that simple. If you love the beach you probably do not want to live in Wellington. If it is an equestrian lifestyle you are seeking you aren’t going to find it along Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. But if you love to walk and hate to drive that would be one location you must consider. If your passion is deep fishing there are only four inlets in Palm Beach County that link the Intracoastal Waterway to where you want to spend your time. Location, lifestyle, budget.

The key is education and information. We live in a world where it’s easy to find if you know where to look. It’s your life and you deserve the best so if your dream is warm ocean breezes along the coast in Palm Beach County then start your research. Knowledge is power and at the end of the rainbow the perfect seaside home is waiting for you to cross the threshold and start living, South Florida style. Your style.
