Have a safe trip.
Having made the same decision you are making many years ago I hope you find the same paradise that I have. After scouting from Jacksonville to Key West and Naples to Pensacola and most points in between I know the state very well. There are some amazing places to call home but many differences in weather, lifestyle and landscape; stay below Vero Beach on the east coast and Sarasota on the west coast if you want the best winter weather. Naples is quite different from the east coast and many like what that part of the state has to offer. I have found that northern Palm Beach County offers the best quality of life for my family and the best place I can point you is a brief article I did about the Jupiter area;
As a resident of Jupiter, I work throughout Palm Beach and Martin Counties, and a great place to start is by defining your goals and comparing the lifestyles and housing costs of areas that you are interested in. There are so many different options available to us that reside in the state and I have selected Jupiter because of the quality of life that we enjoy. From my viewpoint, there is no finer place to reside that the Jupiter area; from the best schools, to a fantastic economy fueled by many factors and of course the wonderful facilities of Max Planck and Scripps Institute, to incredible unspoiled beaches, unbelievable dining and shopping options, numerous boating and golf opportunities, uncrowded streets, low crime and just the overall kindness of our residents. Recently we were out with a client who commented on just how nice everyone is; and why not as we are truly lucky to live in Paradise.
You will find the market both for rentals and sales to be very strong and the best opportunities go very quickly. Also, keep in mind that any property that is governed by an association will have an approval process that can take up to 30 days but most will turn around applications much quicker. The need to team with qualified agent cannot be overstated as you must have someone on your team who is suited to located new opportunities that match your goals, determine fair value and have your best interests at heart. As strong as the market currently is buyers must be prepared to move quickly or that opportunity will quickly be under contract by someone else.
I work almost entirely as a buyers agent in Palm Beach and Martin Counties and certainly would be honored to be on the list of RealtorsÂ® you interview and happy to be of assistance in any way that I can. If you are in the area and would like a tour I would enjoy showing you why I am so fortunate to call Jupiter my hometown.
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,
