Sonoma Isles homes by DiVosta

DiVosta homes have long been exceptionally highly prized for their famous "Built Solid" concrete construction method.  This method uses frames to retain poured concrete as walls instead of the more customary CBS block method of stacking.

Solid concrete construction was used on the Florida Keys to make homes more "hurricane proof" and with the addition of "impact" windows on today's homes, these should easily withstand winds to the rated 140 mph threshold.

Home prices will start in the mid-$600's and go to over $1 million.  This is in line with other new homes at Jupiter Country Club, Rialto and Windsor Park.  Other new construction homes offered by Standard Pacific in The Prado start near $1 million.

Burt Reynolds Ranch is set for development

Change is coming to Jupiter Farms and the 33478 zip code.  As the housing market here continues to heat up 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 in Sonoma Isles.  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/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

Loxahatchee River homes setting new sale records

Loxahatchee River homes for sale 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 and sometimes at full price in cash deals.

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.
