Some homes closed at fairly high prices with the 4000 square foot 5-bedroom at 21288 Rock Ridge Drive in The Estates selling for $755,000 at the top. It doesn’t even have a lake view. Nearby 21206 Falls Ridge Way sold for $750,000 with 5100 square feet.

Boca Winds: Inventory remains low in Boca Winds with only 9 homes currently on the market, less than 1% of homes in the community. That makes it a seller’s market.

The average transaction was a 4 bedroom with 2300 square feet selling for $438,000 in 3 months. That last bit might reflect that some homes in Boca Winds are taking longer to find the right buyer. The average was driven up by a few homes that took several months.
