Boynton Beach FL Real Estate Home Sales | December 2019
Low inventory is prevalent. Of course, this can and does vary by community, but closed home sales are up. Buyers, if you see a house you like, grab it; it may not be there tomorrow. Sellers, a reminder to price your home correctly for the market we are in today.
The real estate housing market in Boynton Beach has changed. It’s a buyer’s market with lower inventory. This can and does vary by community with more available homes in the 55+ active adult communities, but with decreased inventory and low interest rates, buyers and sellers need to take notice. They also need to have a great buyer’s agent for new construction or a resale.
As a pet-friendly real estate agent in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Highland Beach and surrounding areas, I am getting the word out to buyers who have been waiting and watching. They have their choice of new construction or resales now.
Whereas, six months ago I had a buyer in a 55+ pet-friendly gated community who made offers on 4 houses where the sellers stood their ground, this is no longer the case. The buyer walked from each of the 4 houses and, ultimately, made a deal with the 5th seller. Now the inventory has dried up.
So, what happened in the Boynton Beach real estate market this past month? Let’s check out the details and see if this market is the right one for you to buy or sell!
We’ve had less inventory hit the market. Buyers have to move fast now if they find the home they want. Again, it this can vary by community.
CONDO SALES IN BOYNTON BEACH FL
As of December 2019, the Boynton Beach FL Real Estate Market showed there were 660 condos for sale. I know, I know, it sounds like a lot, but many people don’t realize how big Boynton Beach really is. It’s the same as with Boca Raton and Delray Beach. Boynton Beach runs from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal Waterway in the east, central to the Florida Turnpike, and west of the turnpike out to State Rd 7.
The highest-priced listing currently available in December was $ 3,300,000 and the lowest was $ 1.00. Yes, you read it right. It isn’t a mistake. One dollar. You already know where it is from my previous market reports!
The condo for sale for one dollar is in a country club with mandatory equity fees, yearly dues, condo fees and, usually, assessments. So while you can buy the condo for one dollar, along with that you must pay mandatory equity, yearly dues and monthly condo or homeowner’s fees. And, when they want to redo something in an equity club, they usually take it to the ground and assess the members.
Now you understand why people want to get rid of these condos. It can get mighty pricey. Many people do not want to pay the additional fees associated with country clubs these days, unless they are die-hard golfers, especially when we have gated communities with many of the same amenities (excpet golf!) for all ages and senior communities.
There is a wide variety of housing options available in Boynton Beach. They run from oceanfront and Intracoastal condos and homes to central Boynton, where there is a mix of non-gated and gated communities, both 55+ active adult communities, as well as all-age communities. There are both newer condos and older condos, new homes and older homes. It is all across the board.

While it can vary by community – some communities have more inventory, while others have very little – you need a great agent to explain these facts and get your home sold.
