So much depends on your lifestyle and needs, do you wish to be close to the beach, is a private golf development of interest, is boat access important, is a townhome or condominium a consideration and so many other questions. Azura, Bel Marra, Blue Water, Boca Bath and Tennis, Boca Hamlet, Boca Harbour, Boca Keys, Caribbean Keys, Enclave, Estancia West, Woodfield Country Club, Horseshoe Acres, Lake Rogers, Landings, Le Rivage, Les Jardins, Long Lake Estates, Mizner Court, Mizner Grand, Mizner Tower, Oaks at Boca Raton, Old Floresta, Por La Mar, Reflections, Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club, Sea Ranch Club, Spanish River, St. Andrews Country Club, Sun and Surf Club, Sanctuary, Townsend Place, Vintage Place, Windsor Bay the list of developments in your price range goes on and on.
So much depends on the locations and amenities that you prefer and understanding what your money will buy in, and around, those areas. Your best bet is to find a professional RealtorÂ® to help you on this journey and the very first step is certainly a clear description of what you are trying to accomplish and put together a "snapshot" of what your perfect home looks like and what areas to concentrate. Your lifestyle, work location (if any), budget and a variety of other factors come into play.
A few recommendations I would make; I would tell you to not sign a buyer's broker agreement with anyone. This is a form an agent will use to tie you up and ensure any transaction you make will only be through them. Find an agent who is happy to perform their services with the knowledge that if they do not properly meet your expectations they will lose your business. Second, never call a listing agent about a property they have listed as their initial relationship with the seller will prevent you from working out the best deal. Finally, I would recommend that you interview at least three qualified agents to assist you and select one who you feel will have your best interests as their primary goal.
I work almost entirely as a buyers agent and would be honored to be on your interview list if you are interested in locating a true pro to make your housing dreams come true. 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,
