How Owning A Boca Home Protects You From Inflation

how owning a home protects you from inflation

If there is one theme to our sociopolitical landscape in the last 2 years, it's been inflation. It has affected everything from the price of bread to the success of our Realtors. The federal reserve have acted in suit in response to aggressively surging costs on everything from chicken cutlets to gasoline, cardboard to housing. These increased rates have led to the expected slowdown in the housing market, with some sellers believing it's still 2021, and some buyers far more fearful than they should ever be. As expert Boca Raton Realtors, it's our job to assuage unrealistic concerns while explaining the realities of the market. The answer lies somewhere in the middle. Despite the deliberate market fluctuation leading to circumstances unforeseen in decades, this is no 2008, and the value of Boca Raton Real Estate never indeed loses its worth. We all need a roof over our heads, and owning a home in one of the most desirable locations in the world is a surefire way to guard yourself with 4 walls of inflation-busting investment power.

Boca Raton History Part 2: The Pioneer Era

boca raton history part 2 - the pioneer era

Through our first entry, we reviewed the sometimes sordid history between the natives and the eventual settlers of South Florida. For centuries, the area known as Boca Raton was a sparsely inhabited area known for its beauty by the Spanish and Seminoles alike. The wild, salt-kissed hammocks of Boca Raton were hardly inhabitable save for the cultures who knew the land for millennia and the pirates who sheltered from storms and attacks by the Spanish galleons they sought to plunder. During the late 19th Century, Palm Beach and Miami became the only significant American towns in the region. Boca Raton was host to less than a dozen white families for the decades that followed, supplying the honorable Joshua Bowen as its first serving congressman. As evidenced by the legend of the Barefoot Mailmen, the journey from Palm Beach to Miami was made solely by doggedly determined pioneers, soldiers, outlaws, and natives.

In the 1890s, this would change drastically. Led by a legendary entrepreneur with a near-ubiquitous name in our state, the first surveys and settlements began to truly take root in Boca Raton. Today's story begins with that man, his right hand in the region, and the few brave enough to settle and change the landscape of Boca Raton forever.

Boca Raton History Part 1: Presettlement and The First Pioneers

The illustrious city of Boca Raton is a jewel on Florida's East Coast. What was once nothing but swampy hinterlands and untamed wilderness evolved over centuries to become the envy of the world - a place for celebrities, the ultra-wealthy, upstart businesspeople, and successful retirees to settle as their own. Yet, before the days of high-impact windows, central A/C, and the many guard-gated communities we feature as part of our landscape, a few brave settlers would attempt the earliest forays into the land we call Boca Raton. As part of our first chapter in profiling Boca Raton's historical chapters, and in concert with our friends at the Boca Raton Historical Society, we're excited to begin our series where it all began, at least for us. Our blog will illuminate the key figures, moments, and decisions that led from those first incursions to the glamorous present and future we live in today.

The Native Origins

The earliest vestiges of human habitation are evidenced in the area currently known as Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, just north of our beachfront office. Known as The Glades Culture, these early natives were here as early as 2,000 B.C. Though South Florida is primarily defined by its...
