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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
