We are blessed in Palm Beach County to have an abundance of different locations to suite many different lifestyles. A clear description of what your particular and unique requirements are will be the starting point of any successful real estate search. There are many differences in Delray in the condo market without throwing in Boynton, or Wellington, or a location in the urban center of West Palm Beach or the tranquil seaside environment of Juno Beach, etc. Comparing these and providing the differences between the two towns is impossible without a full understanding of your goals.
For instance in Delray along Atlantic Avenue you cab but a 2 bedroom condo in a development like Kings Point out west for $20,000 or you can head east to the beach and spend $700,000+ for a two bedroom unit. Location, location, location. You may find when starting your search with a professional understanding your needs that your perfect location may not be in either location you inquired about.
Reading between the lines it sounds like you might be looking for a property that you can rent for short term intervals during the season and still have it available for your use when in the area. You will need to focus on buildings that allow shorter term rentals in areas where snowbirds are willing to pay high seasonal rents during the winter months. Balancing these two can be harder than one would think but there are still great opportunities out there if you know where to look. There are also single family opportunities steps to the sand that are unencumbered by associations that might be explored depending on your budget.
The best thing you can do in today's active market is clearly define your housing objectives and determine what areas will meet your needs. Inventory levels are very low and finding homes is a much more difficult task than it was a few months ago. If you would like to further discuss your particular situation and put together a game plan to meet your goals please feel free to contact me at your convenience for a complimentary consultation. I would be honored to be on the list of RealtorsÂ® you may choose to interview to assist you and your family find the perfect Florida home.
Best of luck and if I can offer anything additional please let me know.
