In the midst of a red hot housing market and critically low home inventory, area developers are seeking to accommodate the influx of people moving to Boca Raton. Florida has always been a premier destination for retirees and semi-permanent vacationers, but in light of the recent global events, Florida has become more than a place to lay back between the swaying palms and avert the state income tax.
As a response to the overwhelming quantity of new residents moving to Boca Raton, the vast swathes of open farmland strewn across the westernmost reaches of Boca Raton are rife for the picking.

From Farmland to Housing
With the value of land skyrocketing and the demand for space at an all time high, GL Homes has taken up the mantle as the first to land their bid, developing land north of Clint Moore Rd. and west of State Road 7 (US 441). GL Homes is noted for its luxury developments, such as the ultramodern and sleek Lotus, The Bridges and the noted 55+ active adult Valencia Communities.
The initial plan is for 1,250 homes. 1,000 will be dedicated single family housing, while another 250 will be utilized for the workforce. In addition, GL plans to add 679 new homes on Glades Rd. Between State Road 7 and Glades Rd. According to VP of Develoment Kevin Ratterree, these homes will be built upon 300 acres of recently acquired farmland purchased by the prominent local developer. z...
Boca Raton Real Estate may not be the first place you think of when choosing a place to plant fruits and vegetables. After all, under the bright lights of Mizner Park and amidst the salt spray that pleasantly wafts across the Intracoastal, it's easy to see why some may be confounded when imagining planting veggies in Boca Raton. However, with subtropical climates that yield a balmy, temperate winter season, the hour is almost always nigh to plant something of value here in Boca. During these cooler, more crowded months, it makes more sense to enjoy time outdoors, and away from the throngs of holiday vacationers. Without further ado, here are 5 fall and winter vegetables to consider planting in your Boca Raton garden this year!
These bright orange root vegetables are easier than they may seem! Great for elevated, deep container gardens, their growth ensures a low commitment of space in your garden. If there's anyone who values a square foot of Boca Raton real estate. While we have no issues with adequate sunlight and fresh air during our "wintry" months here in Boca Raton, we'd be remiss if we didn't remind our readers that carrots are very high in beta-carotene, a key component in producing Vitamin A in the body - which keeps...
With 2021 in the rearview mirror and the heaviest throes of the pandemic seemingly behind us, the world is looking to travel once more. While Florida and Boca Raton by extension have remained a beacon of light for those relocating to South Florida or seeking a more resilient community free of lockdowns, it hasn't been all sunshine and roses (ok, maybe it's been close). Bloomberg.com has done an excellent job with their travel blog, identifying 24 other destinations alongside Boca Raton real estate as the places to go in 2022. For our part, we've assembled a few more reasons to join us here in Boca Raton, whether for a quick jaunt, or a lifetime!
We can't call them experts unless they've stayed a week (or three) in our beautiful sunny home, but we're eager to see what their travel team had to say about Boca Raton. Their claim: Boca Raton is suddenly more than a retirement hovel, offering more options for young people to "join their grandparents."
The outsider perspective maybe that Boca Raton is still a retiree-dominated landscape, but their claim that Boca Raton is slowly morphing into an extension of Miami's vibrancy is well-founded. More than just golf courses, country clubs, and high-end shopping, Boca Raton offers more budget-friendly gastropubs, youth attractions, and nightlife in districts like Mizner Park. Furthermore, the meteoric rise of FAU's student population to nearly 40,000 students has led more young people to seek housing closer to the water...
