Renovations That Pay

Renovations That Pay

From replacing your doorbell to opening up the kitchen walls, there are certain renovations that will pay off more than others. Kitchens and bathrooms will typically have the biggest impact on resale or upping the value of a home. However it’s what you install that truly makes a difference.

On a smaller scale lighting, cabinet pulls and light switches.  Buyers can tell the difference between quality and the lack of.

Loxahatchee Club Homes

December 19th, 2014

Not well known and low on the radar is the The Loxahatchee Club in Jupiter. A fine Nicklaus golf course, very low-key, ultra-private, and a fine place to live. Many of the residents are from Canada, where the developer was from.

Loxahatchee Club Golf Membership

December 12th, 2014

The Loxahatchee Club in Jupiter  is a classy, private, golf-gated community. Tightly knit, more like a northern club than your typical Florida club.

New Construction Styles in the Palm Beaches

December 11th, 2014

Mediterranean gives way to British West Indies.

What architecture tends/changes do you see happening, if any?

The most common saying today is “Med is Dead”, meaning that Mediterranean is out and British West Indies/Key West is In.

The changes began about 2½-3 years ago. Now, if you see a new Mediterranean house under construction in the Palm Beach real estate market, you shake your head and say, “What were they thinking“.

British West Indies or soft contemporary is a coastal look, white or cream exterior with grey flat concrete tiles and floor-to-ceiling windows. The interior architecture is an open floorplan, all moldings are squared off, white/grey kitchens, a soft modern/contemporary/transitional. Gone, gone, and gone is the living room, replaced with an open kitchen-great room.

The model below is in Old Palm and also available in Loxahatchee River Jupiter homes for sale

The master lady’s bath is white/cream, ditto her closet, while the men’s is a medium shade of brown or taupe.

Marble floors are replaced with a sandstone-honed look; no longer shiny, mostly white/cream. The yellow Saturnia is a thing of the past. There are no built-in TV units. Everything is attached to the wall to be replaced with something bigger. We always take our clients to see Old Palm new homes in Palm Beach Gardens because the models are so up-to-date.

Loxahatchee River Homes For Sale

December 10th, 2014

The Loxahatchee River area in Jupiter is Old and New Florida at the same time. We just recently represented a client who tore down a home built in 1922, subdivided a 1-acre parcel, and sold both parcels to individuals looking to build Key West/British West Indies homes. The whole area is very large and complex, with the large river on the east pouring into the Atlantic Ocean and the northern portion dividing into the North Forks. There are canals, gated communities, golf courses…everything but retail.


The River is very shallow in parts, so most probably a 50-foot boat is the max. There are some low bridges, so the Buyer must be extra careful in doing proper research. Vacant land and teardowns on the big portion of the river run from $1 million to $3.5 million, so there is quite a bit of diversity price-wise. Prices drop considerably on homes with and without canal lots; anywhere from $300,000 on up. Take a look at homes on the River in Jupiter for sale.

One of the features homeowners love about the area is the WIND. Great breezes every day come off the Atlantic Ocean. Many areas are just streets with no HOA fees, the gated areas have minimal HOA fees, so the cost of living there versus gated golf communities in Palm Beach Gardens is way lower, except for the cost and upkeep of a boat. There is an old Florida saying, the 2nd happiest day of your life is the day you buy your boat; the happiest day is the day you sell it. Boaters are a great breed, some are dedicated and some are fickle.

The best way to go is to have a friend who owns a boat; even better if he has a plane, too.
