HAVE YOU EVER BEEN OUT ON A LIMB? Since the freeze came a couple of years ago, my tree friends have not returned for a visit until this year. From my patio, I could hear them climb the trees, especially the pines. You know they are not afraid of heights. They swim too, and to watch them take off it’s as if they are wearing track shoes. I sure hope they return as they did years ago, and bring a couple of friends too.

Is Boca Raton the laziest place in Florida?All the good people of Palm Beach County know Boca Raton as a regional business center and home to the headquarters of Fortune 500 companies like Office Depot and, until a merger this month, Jarden Corp. But Realtor.com analyzes the data and comes to a different conclusion: Boca Raton is the laziest city in the country. The ranking system was based on such factors as number of restaurants that offer delivery; number of day spas and massage therapy centers; percentage of homes on Realtor.com that advertise a hot tub, sauna or steam room; average hours of sleep; and average work hours per week.  In one word, how would you describe the city or town you live in?

When selling Boca Raton luxury homes properties or others, there is a strategy for negotiating the best purchase price. As a seller, you can expect your home’s asking price to be based on what is happening in the Boca Raton luxury homes market, such as:          What type of real estate market is it at the moment (seller’s, buyer’s, balanced)?          What type of requirements are you, as the seller, demanding?          What type of financing does the buyer have?          What is the true condition of your property? All of these factors come into play when trying to set the right price and negotiate offers that will hold up and not fall through. Get more advice at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty on what you should consider before accepting an offer on Boca Raton luxury h...

If you’ve got new construction in your area, like the Boca Raton luxury homes market does, chances are you are receiving a number of bites from prospective home buyers. At least, you should be when looking at the latest report from the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA).Tallies from the MBA Builder Application Survey show a significant boost in home buyers applying for mortgage applications this past February. The survey examined applications put in for new home purchases, which was up 24 percent from January 2016 and 12 percent from February 2015.
