Home Sales in Boynton Beach FL | Sept 2019 Market Report
The Boynton Beach real estate market showed steady sales and steady inventory in September. The number of single family homes for sale remained steady, while the number of condos, villas and townhouses dipped slightly. Prices for sale decreased slightly across the board.
Days on market remained pretty much the same for both condos and single family homes.
The housing market in Boynton Beach has changed. With the influx of new construction, resales and low interest rates, we are in a buyer’s market with lower inventory. Sounds crazy but true. 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.
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 in the past month or so. Buyers have to move fast now if they find the home they want. Again, it varies by community.
CONDO SALES IN BOYNTON BEACH FL
Boynton Beach real estate market report showed there were 621 condos for sale in as of September 30, 2019. This remained steady from the previous month. It still may sound like a lot, but many people don’t realize how big Boynton Beach really is. It runs from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal Waterway in the east, central to the Florida Turnpike, and west of that out to State Rd 7 (441.)
The highest-priced listing currently available in May was $ 3,300,000 and the lowest was $ 1.00. We’ve seen this before. Yes, you read that right. No, it is not a mistake.

So while you can buy the condo for $ 1.00, you must pay mandatory equity, along with yearly dues and monthly fees to go along with it. It gets pricey. Many people do not want to pay the additional fees associated with country clubs these days, unless they are die-hard golfers.
