Halley S., Home Buyer in New York, NY

There is a lot of talk of a softening real estate market. How would you describe the real estate market in Singer Island?

Asked by Halley S., New York, NY Mon Apr 23, 2007

How long do homes typically sit on the market in this city?

Help the community by answering this question:


It's no secret that home sales are declining, they have been for a year now. Besides for a few area's the market is very weak and will probably stay that way for a while until the economy improves. With the fed keeping interest rates at or near zero for the foreseeable future it just goes to show things aren't getting better. They have exhausted their options in keeping interest rates and QE for so long. Imagine what will happen when they finally do raise rates. My personal opinion is that housing prices will start to decline once raised and that's if other factors don't force them to prior.

It is strange how many of the same questions you have asked about so many places. Seems very fake.

Singer Island is a resort community located on a breathtaking barrier island featuring the best waterfront views in Palm Beach County. With world-class sportfishing centered out of Sailfish Marina and easy access to the Bahamas, Palm Beach Island, West Palm and Jupiter, we are in the epicenter of all the activity. New developments on the island are thriving with builders like Toll Brothers, WCI, Taylor-Woodrow and Catalfumo completing outstanding luxury oceanfront towers. Next month WCI's The Resort, a condo-hotel, will open its doors for reservations through Starwood's luxury collection. 5 Star Oceanfront Restaurants and world class spa facilities will be available for all to enjoy. For Buyers looking for resale oceanfront condos, there are amazing opportunities in each building to purchase premium units at significant discounts to 2005-2006 prices - values are to be had from $399K - $995K depending on location and interior floor plans. Single family homes are on the lake or intracoastal side of the island and some feature 100 ft of water frontage for boaters, amazing views on lovely properties. Palm Beach Shores on the south end of the island has smaller houses with no water frontage and prices are more reasonable - these homes are in easy walking distance to ocean beaches and the Palm Beach Inlet area. The softer market is bringing savvy Buyers great opportunities. The average days on market is a bit over 180 days unless pricing is very attractive - then properties will move quickly as investors are beginning to sense opportunity in the downturn. Definitely a good Buyers market.
