Jupiter home prices, an update

The market for Jupiter homes continues to heat up.  Prices and all other relevant statistics point to a high demand for our houses.

16 homes were listed for sale in this area during the last 24 hours.  If we drill down into the data a little we find that the median home price is $ 429,000 with works out to $ 194.41 per square feet of living space.

This takes into account all price ranges and the median gives a better insight than the average.

Days on the market have dropped to only about a month.  So, if you are looking at Jupiter homes for sale, be sure and talk to your agent and lender to make sure there are no surprises.

This is where a great agent can help.  Lending rules have tightened up since 2008 and the slightest mistake can really foul up you plans.

And you may lose the house you want.

So, to find the right house and get it, find the right agent.  If you think it makes sense to have a conversation about Jupiter real estate, contact me at 561-762-4073.

Burt Reynolds Ranch is set for development

Change is coming to Jupiter Farms.  As the housing market here continues to heat up, and boy is it hot, the undeveloped land around Jupiter Farms is coming under pressure.

Near the Florida Turnpike several hundred homes are going to be built by Divosta Homes.  Divosta, owned by Pulte, has been one of the most prolific builders in this area for decades.  His homes in The Bluffs, The Hamptons and Oaks East have always been popular because of the pleasing floor plans, solid concrete construction and oak lined streets.

In the Farms, the famous Burt Reynolds ranch is set to undergo development into luxury homes on oversize lots.  K. Hovnanian purchased the property from the Palm Beach County School Board as has approval for construction.

At one time, the ranch and movie set was a tourist destination but for the last few years it has set abandoned.  It is located on the eastern side of the Farms on Jupiter Farms Road next to the local gathering spot, Town N Country Feed.

There are about a half dozen new construction locations in Jupiter right now.  If you are seeking a new home, you can find out which one might work best for you by contacting me directly at

Riverfront properties setting new records

Homes for sale along the Loxahatchee River and other waterfront locations are setting new records. The market for homes in Jupiter is red hot and nowhere is this more apparent than in waterfront properties.  Homes like this riverfront home along the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter are selling in just days.

There was a sale of $ 2.3 million dollars recently that sold the same day it came on the market.  The home below is listed for near $ 3 million and is on the Pennock Point riverfront area.

These sales are setting new per square foot records too.  One house just sold for near $ 700 per foot.
If you live along the river, this is the best time in years to sell...and of course, this can't last forever.
If you have a house for sale that is not selling, there is some reason that it is not moving.  And it may not be the price.

I have helped many homeowners fix the issues preventing a sale and get their homes under contract without lowering the price.

If you think it makes sense to have a conversation about selling, contact me at 561-762-4073.  If you missed the top of the market in 07, don't miss this chance to move forward with your plans.

Jupiter real estate market is still getting hotter

The real estate market in Jupiter and Tequesta has been really hot for the last couple of years.  But it is getting even hotter!
