Why Are People Moving To Boca Raton? | 5 Top Reasons

why are people moving to boca raton? | blog header image

Boca Raton has always had a glamorous reputation. A community rich in natural beauty and brimming with opportunity, Boca has long been seen as where people go once they've "made it." Yet with conditions nationwide and the economic struggles related to the COVID19 pandemic, many people are moving to Boca Raton for the opportunity, rather than to rest on their laurels. So many are asking the same question, so we came up with 5 of our best answers for why people are moving to Boca Raton.

The Atlantic Ocean

Sure, the Atlantic Ocean has a bit more U.S. coastline than just here in Boca Raton, but for those looking to break their yearlong spell of cabin fever, the Atlantic sunrise feels just a bit more welcoming. From Boca Raton to Miami, the South Florida Atlantic Coastline is a true marvel.

No State Income Tax

This has been an allure for much longer than this current wave of people moving to Boca Raton. The states with the largest outward migrating populations seem to share a few things in common - mainly economically crippling lockdown policies and high taxes at every level. Florida's lack of a state income tax is a game-changer for many families and individuals alike.

Safety and Stability

We're not touting Boca Raton as the final bastion of public safety, but during a year in which crime rates skyrocketed in many cities nationwide, Boca Raton and South Florida at large has remained an option for those looking to whisk their families away from communities that may have seen marketable...

Champagne & Parisi Summer Magazine

There is no doubt that it has been a rough spring for everyone! In Palm Beach County we are finally seeing things getting back to normal with beaches and businesses opening to excited residents. Despite the COVID-19 set back and having to make adjustments in our daily lives, the real estate market in our area did not dip as many expected. Real estate was designated as an “essential business” and Brokers made the adjustments necessary to operate safely and home purchases continued. We also did not see a wave of price reductions. Sellers realized the crisis was temporary and overall held off on the “firesale” approach. 

Champagne and Parisi Real Estate is looking forward to a great summer of home sales as the community’s spirit is uplifted with the news that the pandemic is coming to an end. This week Champagne & Parisi Real Estate is releasing the Summer edition of their listings magazine including homes for sale in Boca Raton and surrounding areas.

Are We Nearing the End of the Lockdown?

At the start of the COVID-19 crisis (back when we were still calling it the Coronavirus), two schools of thought emerged from our learned neighbors, friends and family. The “it’s going to get real bad” group and the “the flu is worse” group. Not knowing which camp to settle in, most of us aired on the side of caution and bought into the thought that “it’s going to get real bad” and ran to the grocery store, cleared out shelves, and, hunkered down for the foreseeable future. Most people didn’t have a choice but to quarantine, “stay at home” orders were implemented, businesses and schools closed and the fear of getting sick with a very unknown illness was looming. 

But over a month in, it seems that the tone is changing. People are less anxious about actually getting COVID-19 and are more concerned with when everything will re-open. In fact, in today’s news, citizens in many states are protesting that the restrictive stay at home orders are unconstitutional and discontent seems to be growing among many Americans. I think this is a signal that we are nearing the end of the “lockdown”. 

Claude Champagne Co-founder of Champagne & Parisi Real Estate, hopes so, “We would love for things to normalize, but obviously safety is our number one concern”. “We’ve followed all the guidelines but continue to operate, real estate was designated an essential business after all”, says Caesar Parisi Co-Founder Champagne & Parisi Real Estate. “We have promoted our virtual tours and continue to work closely with our trusted title company partners, lenders...

Coronavirus (COVID-19), Is It Time to Worry?


Coronavirus (COVID-19), Is it Time to Worry?

I would be remiss not to briefly address the coronavirus (COVID-19) since it has been dominating the headlines of every media outlet nationally and internationally for the last month. You almost can’t help but get wrapped up in the panic after seeing the stock market tank, listening to reports about bare store shelves and learning that there is a run on Purell and Clorox products. The recent interest rate drop was a bright spot for the real estate industry but the COVID-19 cloud still lingers.

I decided to dial back my hysteria and take a look at what is actually happening in our area, ignoring sensational journalism and varied opinions by medical experts that we’ve seen on the national broadcasts. At the posting of this article, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Palm Beach County. As a matter of fact, the scrolling cover banner of the Palm Beach County Government website is a notice about the 2020 Census, the 2020 Palm Beach County Mobility Planning Summit and a reminder about Outdoor Adventure Day going on today. The Florida Department of Health website doesn’t have any specific advisories for Palm Beach County either. Local authorities are reminding us about general preventative measures like hand washing, but not suggesting a dramatic change in our daily behaviors. 

The major problem with the news coverage is that it is heavily focused on what “could happen” or extreme scenarios abroad and fails to give a true picture of what...

Do You Suffer from Overpricedtosis?

Do You Suffer from Overpricedtosis?

The good news, “season” is almost over, the bad news, “season” is almost over. Am I confusing you? Sorry, let me explain… good news first, soon the traffic will resume to normal, you will be more likely to get into your favorite restaurant and peace and tranquillity will return to our area. The bad news, today marks our second day into the last month of “season” and if you haven’t sold your condo yet, you only have 29 more days to capitalize on the biggest pool of buyers in our area at one time. 

Businesses off all types thrive during this 3 to 4 month period. Realtors are busy shuffling around town the influx of Northerners, trying to turn “seasonal” renters into Buyers and listing more homes on average than they do during the rest of the year. 

But, it’s March 2nd and you haven’t sold your condo yet, should you panic, let’s take stock of the situation. You listed the condo during "season", “check”, you decluttered and made the improvements your Realtor recommended “check, check” and priced it where you wanted, wait, you don’t get a check for the last one. Truth be told, the price you wanted was likely not the Realtor suggested price. 

Don’t be ashamed, it’s common. Sellers in our area are often afflicted with Overpricedtosis during the seasonal months. Overpricedtosis causes Sellers to have price delusions and inspires them to list their condos for more than they are worth merely...
