Palma Vista and Avalon Home Sales 2018 First Half

Five homes sold in Palma Vista and two in Avalon in the first half of 2018. They seem to be moving slower as they all took over two months to sell and five of the seven took over 100 days, and prices seem to be down.

Palma Vista

The highest price for both neighborhoods was $655,000 for a 6 bedroom, 3700 square foot two story at 21074 Bella Vista Circle in Palma Vista. The house had been rented out the past couple years. Overall Palma Vista home prices seem down a bit. It’s possible that the new “Uptown Boca” development to be built just northeast of the community is affecting values but we’re not sure if that’s it. Two of the homes were bank owned foreclosures. One of them sold for only $372,000 with 4 bedrooms and 2800 square feet all on one floor.

The other foreclosure was a large 3800 square foot house that sold for only $546,000. The best deal for a seller was 9736 Palma Vista Way selling for $526,000 with just 2500 square feet.

The community has a location with unique benefits, in particular the ability to walk into the Jewish Federation campus for the Jewish schools and JCC.

Avalon

21830 Cypress Palm Court sold for $585,000 with 5 bedrooms in 3550 square feet. The house has deluxe finishes in the kitchen and at least one bathroom.

9786 Parkview Avenue sold for $580,000 with 5 bedrooms in 2900 square feet. The interior is a mix of recent upgrades with some dated features like flooring and windows.

Palma Vista is particularly attractive to people who appreciate the easy access to the Jewish Federation campus and the JCC. The neighborhood is also within walking distance to West Boca Medical Center and the Westwinds shopping plaza (Publix and Home Depot).
Boca Reserve

Two homes sold in the small and fairly new Boca Reserve development. Both were built in 2013.
12090 Boca Reserve Lane sold for $730,000. The 4000 square foot 5 bedroom has 4 1/2 baths. It sat on the market off and on for over a year mainly due to a high original list price of $899,000. It sold quickly after the list price was lowered to $749,000. It was purchased new from the builder in 2013 for $637K.
The smaller 12106 Boca Reserve Lane sold for $715,000 with 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths in 3000 square feet. This one sold in 8 days with an original list price of $749,000. The seller had just bought the house in February 2016 for $675,000, and the previous owner got it from the builder for $570K.
HOA fees in Boca Reserve are about $200/month.
