Hello Paula,
It looks like your question has already been answered by quite a few other REALTORS® and I happen to agree with them when it comes to Boca Raton. There are several communities that would be a great fit for you and your family and I wanted to give you some additional information regarding the current inventory. As of today, according to the MLS, there are 135 Single Family Homes, with at least 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms for sale within your budget. Of these 135, 23 are "Short Sales" and of the remaining 112, 54 are in Country Clubs and 58 are in other kind of communities (some gated, some not).
With these market conditions, it is important to act fast when an opportunity presents itself (if you need financing, it is a good idea to be pre-qualified, possibly by a major financial institution).
Talk to with your Boca Raton's REALTOR®, explain exactly what you are looking for and have him/her give you a list of possibilities so that you don't waste any time when it's time for you to move forward.
If you are not currently working with another REALTOR® feel free to either call me or email me to discuss your Real Estate needs.

Hi Paula, not sure if you have had a mortgage professional discuss with you options based on max payment, desired down payment and financing options, but I would be happy to do so. Often times people don't realize what is totally available to them and in many cases having someone to go through things properly makes a huge difference in what is accomplishable! If you would like to discuss please do not hesitate to call anytime.

Hello Paula,

I have lived and grew up in Boca my whole life and I have a 7, 4, and 1 year old daughters. So as a young family myself I would say I would look at the following communities:

Boca square, Boca greens, parts of mission bay, Wimbledon, Boca del mar area.

Let me know if you need information on any of those communities. Good luck in your home search

Hi Lilia,
Wow....social networking at its best ;)
My husband and I are looking for our starter home. 3/2.5 ranch style home with pool. We have almost 2 year old daughter and are very concerned with finding the right elementary school for her as well as a move in ready home. Our budget is around $300k preferably less.
What are the best areas to look at?
I've lived here for the last 20 years but, am clueless as far as the best school districts.
Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
