My office is in the heart of Boynton Beach on Woolbright and Federal Highway. My phone number is:(561)364-LOAN (5626). And I welcome the opportunity to meet you in person (your place or mine!)
If you're a senior looking for a home in Boynton Beach with a lower HOA, you may want to consider the 55+ communities of Bent Tree Villas or Green Tree Villas. Both offer sizeable 2/2 one-storey villas, with an HOA fee that fits well within the boundaries you have set.
Purchasing a short sale is not so easy in this market, because many people have the same idea. However, be aware that a short sale does not take a short time. It may take anywhere from 3 months to 9 months or longer to get a response from the bank, and the response may be a demand for more money than the original listing price. Also, if the short sale home in Boynton Beach has not been inhabited, there may be some fix-up required.
With that said, you may (or may not) save around 10-12% off standard market price of the Boynton Beach short sale you purchase. The trick is to find one in a community you want to be in.
However, if you have a time limit, you are best off dealing with a home that is still under the control of the owner. You will have some room to negotiate and you will have an answer to your offer within 48 hours.

I would be pleased to help you find the perfect residence in the Boynton Beach area. I've helped many seniors relocate to this area and most, if not all, prefer to live in one of the many "active adult - - over 55" communities we have here. There are very few short sales to choose from in these communities as most of the owners paid cash, as you will be doing, for their properties. Also, oftentimes, you'll find regular sales at the same price as short sales!
In addition to the very personalized service I offer I'd also like to set you up with a free Listing Book account with the search parameters you've specified and which also has complete and up-to-date listing info. That way, you can search for properties very similar to the way I do on the MLS. You can call or email me with your contact info and I'll immediately set that up for you.
