One of the best nights of fun in downtown Delray Beach is the Art and Jazz on the Avenue.  It's a night of food, music and art on Atlantic Avenue.  One of my all time favorite watering holes is Elwood's Dixie Bar B Que.  It's a great place to sit outdoors and listen to live music, drink a beer and run into old friends or mingle with new friends.  Don't miss the last Art and Jazz on the Avenue on Thursday night, November 29th.  Visit Homes of South Florida

Most everyone knows that South Florida is a buyer's market.  If you are looking for a really "Great Deal", then searching for a pre-foreclosure or short sale is definitely one way to find it.  Delray Beach happens to be one of my favorite places in South Florida, so I am always on the look out for a good pre-foreclosure.  I work with several investors and most of them prefer to invest in townhomes.  One of my favorite townhomes for the money is Kokomo Key Townhomes.  Kokomo Key is an intracoastal community with approximately 116 3 bed and 2 bed townhomes.  There are currently 2 townhomes which are in pre-foreclosure.  This presents an opportunity for a win-win situation for both the buyer and seller.  The buyer may be able to purchase the property for well below market value and the sel...

Delray Beach, also know as, The Village By The Sea, is conveniently located between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.  When I first moved to Delray Beach 10 years ago, it was a small, but growing city.   There are positives and negatives to a growing city.  The positive is, businesses are booming, plenty of entertainment, schools are improved, and property has appreciated very nicely. The negative is, home prices have gone up so much that it is difficult for a first time homebuyer to purchase a home.  Lavers Delray Racquet Club in East Delray has remained one of the few condos still affordable for the average first time homebuyer.  The location is perfect.  It is only one mile to the beach, one mile to Downtown Delray Beach, and only 20 minutes to two international airports.Prices in...

I have been a ten year resident of Delray Beach and have seen the city grow very quickly in the short time I have been here.  This can be both good and bad for a city.  The good part is obvious.  The city is bustling with new businesses, restaurants, bars, art galleries, etc.  There are always street festivals, such as Jazz on the Avenue and The Garlic Festival to bring people and business to the city. The one downside to a growing city is the cost of housing.  As most people know, there has been a sharp rise in the price of homes in Delray Beach.  This has made it that much more difficult to afford a home here.  Many people want to live in Delray but just can't afford the mortgage with the taxes and insurance on top of it.This brings us to an alternative, and that alternative is buying...

When people come to Delray Beach their destination is usually Downtown Delray Beach, also known as "The Avenue". When you are on the Avenue you will find several nice bars, clubs, and some outstanding restaurants.  One of my favorites is without a doubt, Taverna Eros.  Taverna Eros is a combination Greek Restaurant and Bar. Their dinner menu is excellent and the prices are very reasonable.  I had never eaten at a Greek restaurant before, so I figured it was time to give it a try.  My friends and I arrived around 8pm and fortunately were able to get a table.   I had no idea what to order, but fortunately Kurt Lehmann, the restaurant manager, came to our table and recommended an appetizer and entree for me.  After eating this delicious dinner, I have to recommend it to anyone that goes to...

We all know that foreclosures are on the rise and several lenders have gone out of business.  This sounds bad for the real estate industry, but as the old saying goes....when you're given a lemon make lemonade. The large number of foreclosures has created a wonderful opportunity for investors and people just looking for a good deal on a home.  Lenders do not want to own property.  The cost of foreclosing on a home is many times far greater than selling it for less than what is owed on it.  When the owner of a property is upside down (owes more that the property is worth), they often cannot even afford to sell it.  They are forced to let the bank take the property from them in foreclosure.  A knowledgeable realtor can negotiate with the lender and have them allow the owner to sell the pr...

If you are looking for luxury in a townhome in Delray Beach, it is hard to top The Estuary.  The Estuary is a beautiful, intracoastal community near the heart of Delray Beach.  There is a community pool, observation deck, a cabana and gated, 24 hour patrolled security.  These two story townhomes are Mediterranean style and have all the upgrades.  Most come with saturnia marble floors, elevator, Bahama shutters, impact glass windows and high ceilings.  You will find the prices to be anywhere from the mid 500's to just over 1 million.The community is only minutes to trendy restaurants and bars on famous "Atlantic Avenue."  You can get to I-95 in 5 minutes, the beach in 2 minutes, and to West Palm Beach International Airport in only 20 minutes. If you would like more information on this lo...

Every so often you come across a gem of a community that not everyone knows about.  Delray Beach has several, but one in particular is Kokomo Key Townhomes.  Kokomo Key is a gated, intracoastal community.  The community is always in pristine condition, HOA fees are currently only $220/mth, and include building insurance, basic cable, exterior maintenance, and trash removal.  The community is made up of 2 and 3 bedroom units.  There is no age restriction and for all you dog lovers...all size dogs are allowed.  There is a lovely pool area, a waterfront gazebo, and boardwalk. You can fish from the pier and if you're lucky, may see some manatees.  There is also an outdoor picnic and grill area with swings and slides for the kids.  The location is perfect.  Only 1.5 miles from Downtown Delra...

As summer winds down and colder weather is on its way, South Florida becomes a favorite destination for many people up north.  Snowbirds begin flocking here as early as October and stay as long as through April.  When coming to South Florida, there is no better place to come to than Delray Beach.  Delray Beach has everything you could ask for in a vacation paradise.  There are 5 Star restaurants, a beautiful beach, incredible nightlife, art museums, and more.  The price for vacation homes is very reasonable and you are within 30 minutes of 2 international airports.  There is no better time than now to start planning your winter get-away.  If you are planning to buy a vacation home or if you are just looking for a place to rent, don't wait too long.  Now is the time to begin your search....

I was watching Larry king live last Thursday, he had a discussion panel about the current Real Estate market, and the economy. I did not get to see the whole show, but right when I turned it on I guess a caller had called in about Delray Beach, Florida, the next Caller was Donald Trump, who had some very encouraging words, he said He love's Delray Beach,and suggested that now would be a time to invest in Real Estate in Delray Beach, and in Florida.  Thank you Mr Trump, it is about time we start encouraging the public that the Real Estate market in South Palm Beach is a good Investment. Need a Agent Call Susan Jean Horne (Remax Services)561-375-8541
