Boca Falls Home Sales for Early 2017

Compared to Boca Winds, homes in Boca Falls seem to be selling slower but still for good prices.

21431 Gosier Way in Majestic Pointe sold for $665K in late January. Image by Google.

Three homes in Boca Falls have sold for over $600,000 since the start of the year. 21431 Gosier Way (above) sold for the most at $665K after over 3 months on the market. The house has 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths in almost 3400 square feet, with a number of significant upgrades inside and out. While it looks good, it’s still well below the market peak as the home’s previous transaction was for $785K in 2006.
At $605K, 12299 Riverfalls Court just closed a few days ago. It was on the market for over 7 months. The 5 bedroom, 3 bath model, 3200 square foot model on 2 floors is one of the most popular in Victoria Falls. The home has a larger lot and is on the edge of the cul de sac.

Another transaction for the same model is pending several houses down, for roughly the same price and a long time waiting for a buyer. That one hasn’t closed yet but the inspection appears to be complete.
12361 Rockledge Circle sold for $604K at the end of March, unusually fast in only 10 days. It’s a 5 bedroom on one floor in 2800 square feet (the kid closets are small). The model is widely seen in its Mystic Cove subdivision.
All of the $600K homes have water views and private pools.
Moving into the $500K range, 12215 Kenton Way sold for $570K after 7 months on the market. The house has 5 bedrooms and 3 baths in 3100 square feet on one floor. This was a short sale and the house has no waterfront.
21426 Gosier Way sold for $560K in 4 months. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in 2700 square feet on one floor, with a pool but no waterfront.

12307 Rockledge Circle sold for $550K; image by Google

12307 Rockledge Circle sold more quickly, in just over one month. At 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in 2400 square feet it sold for $550K. It’s small for Boca Falls but has an extended lake view, screened-in pool and significant upgrades.
Selling for $545K after 4 1/2 months was 21480 Halstead Drive in Majestic Pointe. It has 5 bedrooms and 3 baths in 3300 square feet, and a pool but no waterfront. And nearby on Gosier Way, the same model at 21329 Gosier Way sold for just $500 less, with waterfront but no pool. This looks like the buyer got a good deal and the sellers could gotten significantly more if they had been more patient, selling in only 40 days.
Further down in price, 12646 Torbay Drive sold for $510K after 3 months on the market. The home has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in 2700 square feet on one floor, a pool and a waterfront view. It’s also one of the shorter walks to the nearby top-rated Waters Edge Elementary School. While the house could use some upgrades (dated appliances), this price seems well below market value. The sellers used a “flat fee” broker and their listing photos were cheap with poor lighting.
21407 Gosier sold for just under $500K. The seller was a bank which acquired it out of foreclosure, which typically means a much lower price due to problems in the house. The 5 bedroom, 3 bath home has almost 3400 square feet.
Last and also least, 12730 Yardley Drive sold for $445K in a month and a half. This is one of the smallest homes in Boca Falls with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths in 2500 square feet and only 2 garage spaces.

Boca Falls 2016 Real Estate Report – Prices Up But …

21307 Rockledge Lane sold for $965K as a short sale in August. It was the biggest transaction of the year in Boca Falls. Image by Google

Boca Falls homes sold for higher prices in 2016 compared to previous years, but the numbers are mixed. The average transaction for the year was just under $593,000, up dramatically from the averages of $538K in 2015 and $522K in 2014. That’s a price increase of over 10% compared to the previous year.
21792 Marigot Drive sold for $860K, the second biggest price. Image by Google

When we dig into the numbers we find it’s not that simple. The reason for the increase appears to be the result of larger homes being sold. The average size in 2016 was nearly 3400 square feet (living area), up from 3100 square feet in 2015 and under 3000 square feet in 2014.
12443 Clearfalls Drive sold for $410K in a short sale, the smallest transaction in 2016. Image by Google.

Measured in dollars per square foot the 2016 average was $178/sq.ft, up from $174/sq.ft. in 2015 (a 2% increase). The number in 2014 was $177/sq.ft. Looked at this way Boca Falls home prices have not increased significantly in the last two years. We checked the numbers after taking out REO (foreclosure-related) and short sale transactions. It did not make a noticeable difference.

21281 Waycross Drive sold for $715K; image by Google.

There were fewer distressed homes sold in the latest period, but they still held down the numbers a bit. The two least expensive transactions were an REO ($471K) and a short sale ($480K). The bottom one was marketed in a YouTube video:

Most of the homes were sold at a full 6% commission rate. Four were sold at a lower 5% commission, and those houses sold for nearly 2% less in dollars per square foot. We have seen consistently in our analysis that full service brokers sell for more than discount brokers. In other words you save 1% on the commission but lose 2% on the sale price. We suspect this results from self-interested buyers’ agents steering their clients away from homes with lower commissions.

Houses selling a little quicker this year, with the average sale coming after 67 days, down slightly from 70 or more days in recent periods.
The highest listing in Boca Falls right now is at $1 million.

Rollover Accident: Photos & Video

The eastbound lanes of Palmetto Park Road were closed this afternoon between Shorewind Drive (Boca Winds) and Riverside, about 2 miles west of US-441. The closure resulted from a two-car accident where one vehicle, a new Kia Optima, rolled over and an older Lincoln Town Car ended up in the median.

We talked to a few people at the scene, though none saw the accident happen. As best we understand it the Town Car, with an elderly driver, was coming out of Boca Winds making a right turn onto Palmetto. The Optima driven by a West Boca High School student, was traveling straight and was unable to avoid the Town Car. Some suspect the Optima was speeding but we suspect that may not be accurate.
town-car-marks
While the Optima did roll, it did not travel very far from the point of collision, the vehicles did not appear to have dramatic damage (other than from the rollover), and we’re told the injuries were not critical.
The debris trail starts in the lower left corner of the photo.
The debris trail starts in the lower left corner of the photo.

From a legal perspective the general rule is that the vehicle traveling straight (the Optima) has right of way and primary responsibility for the accident falls on the vehicle turning (the Town Car). There did not appear to be any obstruction interfering with the drivers’ ability to see each other.

Eventually a tow operator was able to roll the Optima back to right-side up. We caught most of that operation on video, and here’s a short version of that:

Sheriff’s investigators then looked inside the car before it was taken away.
