Summer has arrived and it is getting HOT.  Lots of violent afternoon thunderstorms which are quite exciting to watch if you are safe inside!  Along with the hotter weather we get a special treat.  Restaurants all over Palm Beach are offering exceptional value with their summer specials.  This month we include a few to show some of the amazing possibilities.

Real Estate activity in BallenIsles has slowed down a bit with 4 closings in the last month.  Be sure to check out the sold and for sale listings we have included.

Stay cool and have fun!

REAL ESTATE TRENDS
BallenIsles Sales

As the BallenIsles Real Estate market nears the end of its peak selling season, there have been 39 closed sales in just the first 5 months of 2019.  Inventory is incredibly low at just 48 properties for sale and Buyers are struggling to find the right property and membership combination.  We are also finding that Buyers are disinclined to renovate. When selling, kitchen and bath renovations and a fresh look are a sure bet in terms of a higher sale price and a shorter market time. 

Call us!  We can make your Real Estate dreams a reality.
