5 Reasons To Sell Your Boynton Beach Home This Summer

5 reasons to sell your boynton home this summer

In today's booming real estate market, there is no true "season" for home buying in Boynton Beach. Following the seismic shifts on how we do business in the past few years, the tangential "snowbird" driven season and its subsequent economic windfalls is more balanced with the middle parts of the year. No longer does sweltering heat, mosquitos, and fluctuating home prices dissuade those from seeking to buy a home or condo in Boynton Beach. With that said, there is still a component of seasonability related to Boynton Beach real estate. It may have more to do with what's happening elsewhere and in your personal life, but regardless, it has a downstream impact on how we see our market. These five reasons, among many are some of the strongest to consider sell your Boynton Beach home this summer! 

"schools out" written on a chalkboard

School's Out!

One of the biggest reasons home buyers will emerge from the woodwork is the absence of a scholastic calendar. Though not weather-related, a move during the school year is almost always precipitated by a significant life change. Whether it's a financial windfall, an emergency situation, or major job transfer, moving during the school year is not ideal for children looking to attune to a routine and build a group of friends. A school year move also includes canvassing the city for the best nearby public schools, private institutions, and local universities, if applicable....

Bats In Boynton Beach? Why You Should Consider Inviting Them To Your Home!

the benefits boynton beach bathouses

Beyond being the cool, but a little weird one on your block, there are many benefits to owning a bat house and entreating these nocturnal friends. Though they've been the subject of centuries of smear campaigns and misconceptions, more Boynton Beach homeowners are finding that bathhouses, and yes, birdhouses too, are terrific additions to their home exterior. In today's blog, we will discuss the many merits, both to you and the bats, for cohabitating together on your Boynton Beach property. Before extolling the immense benefits, however, let's first go over a few of the best practices when mounting a bat house and attracting these misunderstood and wonderful creatures.

bat houses bolted to tree

Setting Up Your Bat House

Seeing as bats don't enjoy conventional vision nor fly by day (normally), setting up a bat house requires a bit more thought and ingenuity than a birdhouse, where you can expect to see dozens of takers arriving for fresh seed and water. We see dozens, if not hundreds of birds every single day, but rarely do we see a bat. Creating the conditions for bats to roost is a bit more complicated. Thankfully, there are many companies who sell prefab or assembly-required bathouses with a multitude of...

5 best steakhouses in boynton beach

Peanut Island

Peanut Island is a popular destination for outdoor watersports just east of Riviera Beach, situated snugly between Singer Island and the mainland. This paradisal island is perfect for snorkeling, boating, paddleboarding, and kayaking. Uniquely, Peanut Island is more of a massive sandbar than a proper island. Though it's within eyesight of the shoreline, it's only accessible by boat. There are public ferries and plenty of slots for anchorage if you're a boat owner. However, be mindful of the regression of the tides, as many boats struggle with grounding as the tide recedes and yields more land. This is one of the quintessential hangouts for...

Healthcare & Social Assistance

Healthcare, in-home nursing, and medical practitioners comprise the largest single employment sector in the Boynton Beach economy. Beginning with two major hospitals headquartered in Boynton Beach, hundreds if not thousands are staffed in these major establishments. In particular, Bethesda East Hospital, just north of the Chapel Hill community, services both Delray and Boynton Beach, adding a need for more staffers to serve an additional population.

The demographic and topography of the city demonstrate a population who is likely to, or recently has, downsized or upscaled their homes.

Home Office And Study

Some semi-retired Boynton Beach residents have happily converted their spare room into a home office, personal library and study. This not only allows for a perfect home workspace, but it importantly sequesters a majority of work-related activities to a designated space. Psychologically, one of the challenges of working from home is the inability to separate home from work, an important tenet of  living a balanced life. With a home office, you have the ability

5 Important Security Features For Your Boynton Beach Home

5 important security features

Home security is there to do one job, and that is to fulfill the promise in its title. Keeping your home safe is like maintaining good health. If your home or your health is in jeopardy, it's nearly impossible to enjoy everything life has to offer. With home security, you maintain the baseline of your quality of life, not just from potential interlopers, but from inclement weather, package thieves, and even gas leaks. To get your home set for safety, there's no need to spend big on over-the-top robust security systems, but there are a handful of important pieces of equipment that our Agents believe are the bare necessities of a secure Boynton Beach home.

doorbell camera

Doorbell Camera

A doorbell camera was once a distant idea that soon became one of the quintessential security items for a home. For many, it seems unthinkable that for centuries we answered doors without knowing exactly who was standing before us. In the days of e-commerce, where packages are delivered every day through our communities, it's easy for package thieves to show up and snatch a cherished purchase and be gone in seconds. Your ring camera is often also a deterrent to this activity happening in the first place. Any thief with a clue will steer clear of the homes with doorbell cameras. Lastly, and while this is rare, especially in Boynton Beach, your camera may be the view that leads to the capture of a criminal, even if...

End-to-end concierge service is one of the hallmarks of a Champagne & Parisi Realtor. Much more than just buyers and sellers of Boynton Beach Real Estate, a good agent anywhere understands the importance of catering to your individual needs.

Boynton Beach Homes For Sale: Starter Homes vs. Forever Homes

starter home vs forever home

When buying a home in Boynton Beach, it's important to attune the nature of the property to the presence of your needs. Whether your home search is prompted by money, marriage, childbirth, or something else, the timeline of your home purchase and your intentions for its use will be the driving force behind your motivations. When it comes to the time of ownership, all of these factors are taken into account. With so many moving parts on and off your paperwork, it's easy to make a mistake and choose too much home for too little time, or splurge on the perfect property when financial opportunity still abound. In today's blog, we'll review the nature of both starter and forever homes, why they get their unofficial designations and the type of circumstances that would prompt a decision in either direction.

What Is A "Starter Home?"

A starter home isn't much more than what the name implies. It's an affordable home that, by nature, is usually smaller, less feature-rich, and may need a little more TLC. Starter homes are typically bought by newlyweds, new parents, or first-time Boynton Beach home buyers.

New Doors

Doors seem pretty straightforward. They're supposed to be, after all. Usually mounted on two or three hinges with several Phillips head screws, doors don't seem like the biggest challenge. However, once you take the door off, if there is wood warping, a broken hinge, or an uneven door frame, you could find yourself without a door and a bigger problem than you anticipated. Make sure before replacing a door, that you have replacement parts for all pieces, and that you can easily reattach the existing door in the event the fit isn't right. The more...

5 Signs You Should Sell Your Boynton Beach Home Soon | Boynton Beach Home Sales

 5 signs you should sell your home

As Realtors, it's impossible to ignore the major rate hikes that dictated the slowdown of the 2023 market. We always advocate to every client that "timing the market" is a bad idea. It's a concept that can be skewered and disproven as a strategy from several angles, depending on the person, home, and financial circumstances of each individual. Instead of worrying about a macroeconomic force beyond your control, take inventory and recognize what you can, and make decisions based on your timing, and not the market's. If any of these 5 signs you should sell your Boynton Beach home are part of your overall circumstances, you may want to consider listing today!

A great Realtor can make all the difference between a transaction failing and succeeding at every level. Imagine them like your quarterback, whose job is to transition the ball from one end of the field to another without fumbling. The better their vision, knowledge of the field, and proactiveness displayed, the more likely they'll be on top of the latest trends that may lead you to a higher asking and sale price. A financially sound Realtor combines a fundamental understanding of the industry itself with the nuances of your particular market and the needs of your family. Having a great "quarterback" is a great reason to push the ball downfield and make bigger moves....

Is A Fixer Upper Worth The Cost? | Boynton Beach Homes For Sale

is a fixer upper worth it?

With so many new construction homes in Boynton Beach, fixer-uppers are far and few between. Fixer-uppers, however, don't have to resemble the HGTV classic with the busted windows and splintered floorboards. In some cases, a Boynton Beach "fixer-upper" might be a home with an outdated kitchen, old floor plan, or disheveled landscaping. In today's Boynton Beach Real Estate blog, we glance at some of the most glaring pros and cons you should know before considering a home that needs a little extra work.

"sticker shock" portrayed by woman surrounded by post it notes

Immunity From Sticker Shock

The sticker shock that followed many home buyers in the post-COVID era is a challenge that our Realtors have had to work through. As agents, our professionals are not salespeople, though "sales" are a major part of the business. It may sound contradictory, but we consider a Realtor who is properly fulfilling their role to be more of a "matchmaker" than a "salesperson," whose job is to explain and help attune your understanding to the housing market, work to meet your needs with the available inventory, and support you throughout the transaction. Our agents have had much to say about the rigors of working past sticker shock both on housing prices and the massive rate hikes that slowed the market in 2024. However, the upside of buying a "fixer-upper" in Boynton Beach, is the expected immunity from sticker shock. One may have their own assumptions of what a house that needs work would cost...

Check Your Air Filter

This is an easy fix, but one that often goes ignored for too long. Air filters are not mandatory to replace upon moving in or out of a home, and depending on the behaviors of your previous owners, could be in dire need of a replacement. The previous homeowners may have been occasional smokers, owned shedding pets, dusted poorly, or were slow to change the filter during their time as residents. For newcomers to Boynton Beach with allergies, it's especially important to ensure your residency begins with fresh, clean air and a great attitude.
