For the 4th time in 5 months Jupiter home prices retreat   What a year it has been for real estate in the Northern Palm Beaches.

  New 10 month low for Jupiter area home salesThings were looking up in the local real estate market, and they still are in all honesty, but one has to be a bit surprised, if not downright disappointed.  The final single family statistics in Paradise Sharks' study of November Jupiter area home sa...
