Talk to a mortgage broker first to find out how much house you can afford comfortably. If you want a recommendation write me at e mail below. Life is good in Boca Raton and to live next to your sister is a fantastic opportunity!

If the SS was over 3yrs ago...or if there were no late payments in the 12 months leading up to the SS then YES, its likely you may be able to buy now

If this is not the case, there still may be options.

Call me after 4:00 and tell you what you can do

marc jablon answered:
Does this home in Boca Raton require equity? Yes, it does. This Boca Raton country club home is located in Boca Grove, a superbly maintained country club in Boca Raton, just off of Florida's Turnpike.

Equity is $70,000, but there is a golf special until the end of this month of $55,000. So if you are looking for a country club lifestyle in Boca Raton, you will be very happy in Boca Grove.

If, however, you are looking for a Boca Raton home in the under $200,000 range that is not in a country club community, you are probably in for a struggle, even if you are a cash buyer.

There is a shortage of homes on the market in general, and a desperate lack of homes in that particular price range. We have at least half a dozen cash buyers for everBoca home in that range, many of them sending in contracts with numbers above asking price.

People using mortgages have no choice but to offer to bring money to the closing table beyond appraisal rates if they want to purchase these homes. If they don't have the extra cash, they don't stand a chance. It's 2005 all over again.

Country clubs are suffering. Fewer and fewer people can afford to pay the up front equity, along with the annual club dues. As a result, prices for absolutely gorgeous homes in these Boca Raton country clubs are falling faster than you can say pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanaconiosis.

John, I know you are looking for Boca, but there's a lot of exciting new construction here in Doral in that price range.

The main difference is the taxes. Other issues are the utilities -

If you are looking for something specific in the Boca area -I have lived here full time for almost 25 years.

I know the area and the market and may be able to save you a considerable amount of time.

Audrey Viola answered:
Absolutely ! Prices are up from last year and sellers are waiting it out to get more more for their places next year , so listings are fewer and selling quickly .
One of my friends had her house listed for one day . It was shown to three people and had two contracts on it before the end of the day .
Even short sales and foreclosures are being listed for more than last year .
Buyers are now in a hurry to find something because of rising prices and smaller inventory ...Looks like it's once again a seller's market .
