Record low inventory and higher prices is what we saw in the Boca Raton FL real estate market report in June. Houses going fast, often as soon as they hit the market and sometimes before. Multiple offers continues to be the name of the game now, depending on community. The number of listings has decreased significantly in while prices continue to rise. Historically low mortgage rates and 2020 are helping to fuel this market. There is always a bit more inventory in 55+ communities. Days on market was down.
With fewer homes coming on the market, sellers are getting plenty of showings, both in person and virtually, and they’re receiving multiple offers. The year of 2020 has had an effect on people. People have seen how fragile life really is. It’s a mindset of ‘if not now, when.’ Continued low inventory, higher buyer demand and low mortgage rates are the order of the day and driving prices up.

So, while you can buy the condo for cheap, you must pay the mandatory equity, along with yearly dues, condo fees, dining fees and more. It gets pricey. Many people don’t want to pay the additional fees associated with country clubs these days, unless they are die-hard golfers. Especially when there are communities with clubhouses and activities.
