The top sale was 10922 Bal Harbor Drive at $720,000 for a 5-bedroom with 3200 square feet. It took 5 months to sell but for the seller it was worth the wait to find a buyer who appreciated all the upgrades in this gorgeously remodeled home.
Five more of these 5-bedroom, 3200 square foot models sold for prices between $695,000 and $705,000, all in Boca Isles South.

18636 Cape Sable Drive in Lakes at Boca Raton sold for $470K.

Saturnia
Saturnia generally has the highest prices west of US-441. This report is no exception with two of the top three prices in Saturnia. Mainly this is due to the homes being large.
19354 Skyridge Circle sold for $735,000. The house has just over 4000 square feet with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a variety of nice features including a screened in pool with a lake view and a large second floor patio inside the screen.
Nearby 19245 Skyridge Circle sold for $670,000 with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 3300 square feet. It has extensive remodeling including the kitchen, master bath and marble tile.

Back to Boca Isles South, 10933 Bal Harbor Drive sold for $569K with the same “Palm Beacher” 5 bed, 3 bath model as the one on Ocean Key Drive. The kitchen was nicely remodeled. Bathrooms and some floors could use an update and there’s no lake view but overall this buyer got quite a bargain by comparison.
Still in South, 19753 Dinner Key Drive sold for $545K with 4 beds and 3 baths in 2900 square feet on two floors. The house has some upgrades but some curious design choices may have reduced buyer interest.
In Boca Isles North again, the smallest model at 19496 Preserve Drive sold for $495K. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths in 2100 square feet. A new roof and various upgrades likely increased the value.
The slightly larger at 10864 Tea Olive Lane sold for $479K with 4 bedrooms and 2300 square feet. Again a new roof helped the price.
The lowest price in Boca Isles goes to 20113 N Key Drive (Boca Isles South) at $455K with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in 2800 square feet. The price was lower than usual because it’s a bank-owned property after a foreclosure last year.
The Shores at Boca Raton
Unusually large for The Shores, 11307 Sea Grass Circle sold for $665K with 7 bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths in just over 4000 square feet on two floors. It’s a relatively high price for the neighborhood but a good deal for the buyer on a dollars per square foot basis and the house has some nice features as well.
We see more typical pricing with 18524 Ocean Mist Drive selling for $534K with 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths in 3400 square feet. The price still works out cheap in dollars per square foot.

Boca Greens is a gated golf course community but membership is not mandatory. Most homes are on one floor.
10353 Milburn Lane sold for $549,000. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 2700 square feet. This is after substantial renovation including new roof, new air conditioning, kitchen, floors and more.
The larger 10367 Camelback Lane sold for $480K with 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths in 2900 square feet. The substantial backyard is probably a magnet for sliced tee shots.
10556 Fenway Place went for the lowest price in Boca Greens this report at $350,000. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath home has 2100 square feet and sat on the market for over five months, due to a high original listing price ($435K).

Boca Isles South: $420K to $659K for Early 2017


Over 10 home sales have closed in Boca Isles South since the start of the year. Prices range from $659K at the high end for a 3300 square foot 5 bedroom, down to $420K for a 3 bedroom with 2000 square feet.
Four homes with over 3200 square feet are on the list, all four of them in less than a month.
20148 Ocean Key Drive sold for $659K. The house has 5 bedrooms and 4 baths in 3300 square feet, with a variety of new upgrades and features including a pool, though it has no waterfront.
Nearby 20016 Ocean Key Drive sold for $625K with 5 beds, 3 baths in 3200 square feet, with waterfront, a pool and a recent remodel.
Also at $625K, 19717 Brickel Point Drive has roughly the same size and features, again including a recent remodel.
The same model sold for nearly $100K less – $527K – at 20029 Palm Island Drive. It also has waterfront with southern exposure for the pool. We don’t know why it sold for so little but the listing included not a single photo of the interior, so we have a hunch it needed a lot of work inside.

Boca Isles South has a nice community pool area and clubhouse. Photo copyright Warren Redlich 2017.

The remaining homes were all smaller than 3000 square feet. The 2900 square foot home at 10588 Saint Thomas Drive still sold for nearly $510K with 4 beds, 3 baths and a pool but no waterfront. There are a lot of interior upgrades so it looks like this buyer got a relative bargain.
20106 Ocean Key Drive sold for $482,500 with 5 bedrooms and 3 baths in 2800 square feet on one floor. This one sat on the market for nearly a year before selling. The interior did seem dated but this one looks like another case where the buyer got a deal.
Also selling for $482.5K was 19748 Dinner Key Drive, the same model as the $510K home mentioned above, but with no pool. The home was listed by a Realtor from another county and the listing photos were poorly done.
Amenities at Boca Isles South include two tennis courts, half basketball court, playground and more. Photo copyright Warren Redlich 2017.

A couple of large homes went even cheaper. 10861 Bal Harbor Drive sold for $458K with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in 2750 square feet on one floor. It’s on a good lot with a lake view in the backyard. The interior was clean but out of date.
Possibly an even better bargain was found at 10581 Saint Thomas Drive, which sold for just $455K with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and over 2900 square feet (same model as a couple others above). The house has waterfront and a recent kitchen renovation.

The smaller models in Boca Isles ranged from $465K at the high end down to $420K for the smallest model.
19634 Biscayne Bay Drive sold for $465K with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths in 2300 square feet with a pretty good lake view from the backyard pool area. The house was in good shape but the kitchen appliances looked dated. We heard that the new owner redid some floors.
The same model sold significantly cheaper at 19555 Dinner Key Drive at $443K a month later. This was a bank-owned home and they often sell for less.
Going still smaller, 10576 Saint Thomas Drive sold for $450K with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths in 2100 square feet. The house has substantial upgrades inside, though it has no pool and no waterfront.
The smallest and cheapest in this report, 19537 Dinner Key Drive sold for $420K with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths in 2000 square feet and significant upgrades. It’s an odd layout with the pool on the side facing the house next door, and a lake view out the back windows of the house.

How do you like them olives? Home Sales in Boca Isles North

The salt water pool and spa was recently remodeled. Built in 1994, it was previously sold for $430,000 in 2012.

Body Identified: Jonathan Bronzini


A couple days ago readers reported that a dead body was found in Shadowood Square. We have now confirmed that it was Jonathan (Eban) Bronzini, age 24. Mr. Bronzini, also known as Jonnie Bronzo, was a graduate of Olympic Heights and a resident of Boca Isles North.
He had many friends. One related to us:

He was a great person. He was on his way to becoming a paramedic. He was best friends with Joel Deleon, who passed away almost a year ago. I know he was going through a lot. His dad died not long after Joel.

We verified that Mr. Bronzini had been licensed as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). From his Facebook page it appears he was well liked and an accomplished musician. His profile is full of messages from friends sad to see him go.

I can’t believe you’re gone. I got the news last night but I woke this morning to a hope it was just a horrible dream. Sadly it’s reality. Jonnie Bronzo you were one of the sweetest people I have ever met. I’ll never forget tagging along to all APDFD band practices and hanging out with you. …

My heart is broken right now. Jonnie Bronzo (Eban) I can’t believe you’re gone. We’ve known each other almost our entire lives. From Sunday school to reuniting in high school playing music together to partying later in our 20s. You were always a kind soul and everyone loved you. May you Rest In Peace, brother. You will be missed dearly

We do not have any verified cause of death. The Sheriff’s office told us there was no suspicion of foul play.

Foreclosures Depress Boca Isles Prices

10845 King Bay Drive sold for $670,000 in June of 2016. It has 5 bedrooms and 3 baths in 3200 square feet and a waterfront location with a pool.

Home prices in Boca Isles fell by nearly 4% in 2016 compared to 2015. The average transaction price was $492,000, a drop of $20K from the $512,000 average in 2015. The numbers are still higher than they were in 2014 ($478K).
As we noted in our mid-year report on Boca Isles, these numbers are a bit misleading. There were a large number of “REO” (bank owned) transactions in 2016 and these tend to sell at lower prices. Removing the REO transactions from both years showed no significant changes in price from year to year with average price in both years around $512K.
19234 Inkwood was the largest house sold in Boca Isles in 2016. With 6 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms in 3400 square feet, it sold for $585,000. This even though with its ideal cul de sac location, large waterfront lot, and private pool. Image and map data by Google.

Measured in dollars per square foot, the overall average for 2016 was $182/sq.ft. Removing non-REO homes raises that average to $188/sq.ft, about the same as 2015 but well above the 2014 numbers.
Leaving out the REO homes, prices ranged from a low of $392K to a high of $670K. Seven of the REO homes sold for less than $390K. Most homes in Boca Isles have four or five bedrooms ranging from 2300 to 3200 square feet. There are a few exceptions.

There were roughly 60 transactions in each of the last three years. Excluding REO homes, homes sold a little quicker in 2016 with the average selling in a bit less than two months and the median at only 34 days.
Boca Isles includes two neighboring gated communities zoned for Olympic Heights High, Eagles Landing Middle, and Sunrise Park Elementary. They are located on Cain Blvd south of Yamato, with South County Regional Park to the west.

10845 King Bay Drive sold for $670,000 in June of 2016.

Average house prices in Boca Isles (including both sections – Boca Isles North and Boca Isles South) dropped below $500K in the first half of 2016, but the number may be misleading. The average transaction was $495K, down from $507K in the second half of 2015 and $514K in the first half of 2015.
The statistics were significantly reduced by REO transactions (homes sold by investors after foreclosure). Out of 35 total transactions, 6 were REO compared to none in the year earlier period. For the 29 non-REO transactions the average price was over $521K. This is still only a 1.3% increase year on year. As we just reported, the similar Boca Falls community saw a 7% increase in the same time frame.

On the low end, 5 of the 6 REO homes sold for less than $400K with the two lowest selling for around $335K. The lowest non-REO home sold for $440K with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on Preserve Drive.
On the bright side houses are selling faster with “days on market” dropping to only 55 days, or less than two months. It looks like time to buy in Boca Isles as prices have not risen along with the overall market. This is a great neighborhood with excellent schools.
