Lowest mid-month levels since way back in January  Sure, some of it is seasonal. Some can be blamed on questionable inventory. But there is no doubt sales of resale homes in Jupiter and the surrounding areas continue to drop. Down 3.2% from one month ago and down over 30% from where we stood back...
Pending home sales pull back for 5th straight month  Summer isn’t over in south Florida. Here the high temperatures and high humidity stay around longer than many parts of the country and I always use the autumnal equinox as my “official” end of summer. This year that happens in Jupiter at 4:21 A...
 Premier waterfront Jupiter location is hard to beat    Anybody who has been watching the Jupiter real estate market knows 2015 has been remarkable. The best properties, in the best locations, tend to sell quickly, at premium prices. The location of The Pointe building does not get any better. Di...
7th straight monthly drop means buyers must be prepared OK I admit it. Last week when the Dow Jones Industrials were down over 1,100 points a few short minutes after the market opened my thoughts raced to 2008.

Hanging out at 7 year highs and seemingly waiting for s...
 Big drops not good for consumer confidence There I was today driving back to Jupiter from an early morning showing in Palm Beach and the phone rang.

7th straight monthly decline Buyers who are actively looking for a Jupiter home to buy are feeling it. Anybody in the Northern Palm Beaches who is following the real estate market is feeling it. There just isn’t much out there to get excited about except higher prices. This certainly isn’t a mark...
After 5 straight up months a little consolidation is welcomed We have been telling anyone looking for a home here in the Northern Palm Beaches that your best opportunities will be between now and November. Today’s numbers prove that point. Once our winter visitors start filling our beaches, resta...
August 1st numbers 12.3% higher than last year This summer Paradise Sharks decided to run our “Summers Saving Splash” where we give each of our buyer client’s a cash rebate at closing equal to 15% of the commission we received on their transaction. It’s really just a sign of gratitude for doing b...
July is shaping up to be one of the best value months ever in real estate Paradise Sharks was born back on February 10th of last year. Our stated passion and the reason for creating this boutique real estate brokerage is, and was, to raise the quality and value of real estate services available t...
