As that North Palm Beach Holiday Feeling Comes ‘Round AgainThe holiday season surely makes for a neat package: wrapping up the whole year in a sort of satisfying finale. Whether it’s your Christmas or Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or any other holiday you can think of, for most North Palm Beach residents, the last weeks of December make up a sort of endpoint/beginning point for more than just the calendar. These days mark a kind of emotional capstone that rounds out the year nicely.Now, it’s also true that these milestones have a whole lot to do with children. In fact, a whole school of thought has it that these holidays are pretty much for the little ones—we adults are supposed just to be along for the ride.Thinking back to when we were little, it could be that our first recognition that this was ...

A New Kind of Affluence Figures in North Palm Beach RetirementYou don’t have to be beyond your 40s to begin plotting a direction for your retirement years. Most younger North Palm Beach residents know this full well but (truth be told) do precious little about it. For most of us, we’re all so busy tending to career and daily living concerns that most of the time it seems like self-indulgent wool-gathering to go daydreaming about retirement plans. Besides—who has extra cash to be doing more than the bare minimum about financing retirement? It’s so far off in the future…That may be the 21st-century reality for most North Palm Beach adults who aren’t close to retirement age, but in fact, some of the real estate decisions we make early on can set the stage for satisfaction in later years. T...

Being a Real Estate Agent in North Palm Beach is a 24/7 AffairThe best real estate agent schooling isn’t something that takes place in a classroom. That kind of school is necessary, of course, because some of the most important work every North Palm Beach real estate agent does has to do with being intimately familiar with the letter of current state laws and Department of Real Estate strictures.Observing best practices—keeping on top of all the current professional guidelines and legal regulations—does form a solid foundation for building a career in the profession. But important as that is, it’s only a foundation. You have to get busy and build something on it.As every North Palm Beach real estate agent soon discovers, doing the kind of effective job that sets you apart begins early i...

Home Price Rises Linked to Homeownership Positives“Homeownership is the bedrock of the American Dream!” was long an unchallenged by word in American culture. Certainly most North Palm Beach homeowners agreed during most of the 20th Century. That premise may have been rocked a little during the early phases of the Great Recession that shook the country starting in 2008, but as the housing recovery gathered steam, faith in the concept eventually returned for most folks.The economic advantages of owning your own Palm Beach County home have been particularly dramatic lately, as historically low mortgage interest rates have made the benefits of homeownership on the family budget dazzlingly apparent. One of the further benefits was just offered in a seminar given by a prominent research econo...

North Palm Beach Sellers Benefit from Remodeling with Luxury TouchesSometimes the experts who project trends in residential housing and real estate find that they have to correct their predictions. Once the final statistics are in, if they consistently reveal errors as wide of the mark as 50%, it’s just embarrassing. Such was recently the case with Harvard’s LIRA remodeling project—and for those of us who represent buyers and sellers in the North Palm Beach home market, the resulting revisions were meaningful.Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies’ statistical barometer for home improvement activity is known as “LIRA”—its Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity. And as their research analyst Abbe Will wrote recently, it had become evident that “the quality and reliability of the LI...

 Nail-Biting Time and Your North Palm Beach Home InspectionIt’s probably just an inevitable part of the human condition.For almost everyone, awaiting any North Palm Beach home inspection is pure, unadulterated jitters time. Nail-biting time. Edge-of-your-seat time.It isn’t because anyone seriously expects any of our Palm Beach County home inspectors to be ogres. Certainly the inspectors I recommend are uniformly courteous, professional, and quite empathetic. They should be empathetic, because of the situation—which consists of a buyer standing by, ready to become the proud owner of seller’s North Palm Beach dream house. With only the home inspection remaining to be conducted…In other words, the inspector is asked to perform a professional service, the purpose of which is to uncover any ...

North Palm Beach’s Bank-Owned Properties Signal OpportunityIf you are a house hunter who isn’t reluctant to dig in and roll up your sleeves, it could be worth your while to take a look at North Palm Beach “bank-owned” offerings. Deciding to do that is less popular than you’d think.Bank-owned is a word that can summon up all sorts of negative connotations, causing even people who usually think of themselves as unemotional to hang back. Like “REO” (short for real estate-owned, a synonym for bank-owned), it is applied to Palm Beach County homes whose ownership has been reclaimed by the lender. Foreclosures and real estate auctions that follow are never jolly circumstances, so many don’t even consider looking at the subject residences.It is partly because of the inauspicious histories that ...

Top 3 (plus 1) Quick Sale Tactics for North Palm Beach Homes for SaleOwners of Palm Beach County homes for sale each have their own individual goal hierarchy. The bottom line is nearly always at—or close to—the top of the list, like everything people sell. But there can be other considerations that rival fetching the largest amount of cash. Some of the North Palm Beach homes that are for sale are adjacent to family members—or long-time neighbors who are just like family—so another wish might be to hand off to a new owner who seems likely to keep the place in good order.More commonly, high among target goals is the wish for a speedy resolution. In fact, for some, personal or professional demands warrant that their homes for sale need to be completed as quickly as possible. Where speed is...

 When Theives Use Your Cell PhoneI never thought of this! This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her cell phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet, etc., was stolen. Twenty minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says, "I received your text asking about our Pin number and I've replied a little while ago." When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text "hubby" in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account. Moral lesson: a. Do not disclose the relationship between y...

On “All the Reasons” Homeownership Stats Have Taken a DiveFor North Palm Beach real estate watchers, it was The Washington Post that came up with the most interesting angle on last month’s most commented-upon real estate headline—which was that across the U.S., home ownership rates had slipped to 1960s levels.CNBC went with the straight numbers (“Home ownership rates drop to 63.4%”); while website zerohedge decided on a more attention-grabbing route (“Homeownership Rate Crashes to Lowest Since 1965”).North Palm Beach readers whose brows might have been furrowed by zerohedge’s “rate-crashing” spin could have been relieved somewhat had they fled to sites like businessinsider, which added, “but may be bottoming” to the sobering news. Yet it was still The Washington Post that made off with ...

3 Points to Make North Palm Beach Mortgage Anxiety DisappearIf you have ever looked at your Palm Beach County home’s mortgage balance and thought, “Yikes! That’s a lot of money!” you’re not alone. Such a gulp-inducing moment can be triggered by listening to one of the celebrated financial gurus explaining personal finance. Much of the latest financial wisdom is aimed at extolling the virtues of an entirely debt-free existence—which would seem to preclude any six-figure home loans on the family ledger.For most every North Palm Beach family in the early or middle years, that debtless goal—although it pencils out as a good idea—is pretty much unattainable. If owning makes more financial sense than renting (it almost always does), unless the family can operate from a garden shed, taking on ...
