My recommendation, is figure out which condo bulding you are interested in. Next, contact a REALTOR and have them provide you with an analysis of the building. Then, wait for what you may consider a "good deal". There is NO better time than now to start your condo search.

We have experienced a very unique time in real estate, the market is certainly showing signs of improvement... The current market here is hot... Properties that are properly positioned in the market are sold very quickly. We have many short sales and foreclosures on the market. Many of the short sales can be very challenging to obtain (I am very capable here). There are many potential strategies to employ - depending on all of the factors of the sale.
So to be more specific to the question, I would look at the marketplace at the time "YOU" are prepared, if the market is favorable make your purchase, make sure you have a strong knowledge base to back up the purchase price - If you believe the market is going down - consider holding off on your purchase, watching the market closely... Many people would agree; now is a very good time to buy! The market may and may not be ready when you are -

Do not put off your purchase. The prices are going up slightly every month. Once you pick your realtor professional ask him/her to show you the "solds stats" for the areas you are looking at and you will understand that what I am telling you is real.
Get mortgage pre-approved, and go on the house hunt today !
Best of luck,

If you are also to consider Delray Beach, I just got a new listing at Lago Delray ( also know as Lago Del Rey).
It is a 2/2 condo tastefully renovated and decorated with lake views for $ 69,000. The furniture is negotiable and the unit shows really nice. Here is a link to the Lago Delray Property:
Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to set up an appointment to see it.

Condos in Boca Raton have fallen in value just like single family homes in Boca Raton. However, houses and condominiums in Boca Raton can't be compared to fruits and vegetables, whose prices often fluctuate with the seasons.
While unsold inventory of Boca Raton single family homes and Boca Raton condos have dropped considerably in the last few months, no one is predicting large price increases in our market any time in the near future.
So if you're looking for a deal on a Boca Raton condo, bring cash, or a mortgage preapproval letter- make an offer, and expect to find some room between the asking price and the final selling price. But don't look for seasonal variations in Boca home prices.

The best time to purchase any home is when a property that fits your wants and desires pops up in the neighborhood that you have identified. The key to getting that great deal is to monitor that neighborhood for new listings. When a potential Short Sale or REO reveals itself........BE READY!!!

It really makes no difference, whether it's Spring or late Summer. Some people say that after school season starts everyone has settled in and the buying rush slows down a little bit, but that's not a proven fact.
In any case, now is a good time to buy and a lot of investors and individuals are taking advantage of the opportunities in the market. If you are buying cash all you need is proof of funds, and if you need a loan I recommend to get pre-approved by a lender. That way when you find the property you want to purchase you are ready to make an offer. If you need any help with the process please call me.

Plenty of theories out there I am sure. We have been living and working in this market since 1978. We have found that a good number of the "smart money" investors, etc. like late Summer, the "Season" is over and there is more motivation out there. May I suggest you enroll in an automatic email notification program(its free) and all Realtors can provide it, including us. As property comes on the market that meets your criteria you will be notified via email the same day and you can act quickly. We are ready to help of course with any questions you may have, Good luck

Really no "seasonal" difference in this market and the best thing you can do is clearly identify your specific needs and target those developments that will meet them. We see great opportunities come up and depending on the buildings you are targeting buyers must be well prepared to act quickly.
The market continues to evolve and each market segment has different metrics so it is important for buyers to understand the numbers surrounding each property they are contemplating. If there is anything at all I can do to help please feel free to contact me for a complimentary consultation.
The very best of luck to you and I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to give me a call.
Always at Your Service,

pricing one could say the Spring is too early and the Fall too late!
There are many other dynamics that affect seller pricing. Waiting
for the "right season " may prevent you from landing a better deal
to be had at the "right time " Best of Luck ! Buying "Right " is as
much an art as it is a science !

In recent months, investors are puchasing properties. Especially in the lower price ranges and now there is little inventory. Many locations have every unit under contract.
I suggest that you find your dream condo as quickly as you can, because prices are sure to rise.
If you would like to explore working together (I have 12 years of exprience in this area as a Realtor) let me know how many bedrooms, do you have any pets, do you want to lease it out, and after you are pre-approved we will know what price range to look in.
