As cliché as it is to recite the word “location” repeatedly when speaking of real estate, the mantra is true – location matters. Choosing where to live is about so much more than the number of bathrooms or square footage of the master; the fact is, the most luxurious finishes in the world can’t make up for the wrong community. Fortunately,Boca Raton condos and homes deliver on all fronts.
Here’s what you can look forward to checking off your buyer location checklist when it comes to Boca Raton:
1. Crime Rates and Statistics
Crime rates in Boca are not the driving force behind gated communities, however safety concerns are preemptively addressed with private security patrolling these premises 24/7 for added peace of mind; the bonus is quiet streets, free of traffic.
2. Education System
The Palm Beach County (PBC) school district is home to some of the finest schools in the state of Florida and is rated an “A” district.
As the birthplace of IBM, and with some of the fastest up and coming tech companies now calling Boca Raton home, its workforce is both talented and well-educated, demanding the same level of education for future generations.
Roadways, new construction, taxation and economics are all valid concerns when relocating to a new area. While there are a handful of major construction projects in the works for Boca Raton, beaches, country clubs and gated communities are clearly defined and neighborhoods established.
New builds replace older homes in many desirable areas, as more people seek the fabulous lifestyle that Boca Raton condos and homes can afford them.
4. Neighborhood Amenities
Boca Raton is defined by three distinct areas:
East Boca – This area of Boca is popular with retirees and second-home owners, those seeking an active, outdoor lifestyle that has it all – fine dining, golf, boating and yacht dockage, making this one of the most sought after areas to live in Boca.
West Boca – Approximately half of Boca’s population resides in West Boca, home to many middle class families, with a casual, elegant vibe.
Downtown Boca – The downtown core offers a different lifestyle, where residents can live, work and socialize minutes from their door. Downtown Boca has been redefined to make it exceptionally bike and pedestrian friendly, breathing new life in to the area.
Each of these areas has its own charms and attributes but the common denominator is that each one is self sufficient with its own amenities, restaurants and shopping.
5. Proximity to Work
Commuting to and from Boca Raton is a breeze in comparison to larger cities. While traffic does exist, it’s fluid, with easy access to both the I-95 and the turnpike, meaning those who desire the lifestyle of Boca but work in the surrounding areas of Ft. Lauderdale, Deerfield, West Palm or Boynton Beach have an easy 20 or 30 minute drive to work.
6. Stable Economy
Boca Raton is not only home to some of the most luxurious real estate, but the downtown business core offers significant employment opportunities through private and government sectors.
The main Florida Atlantic University (FAU) campus is located in Boca, and the thriving retail and hospitality industries all contribute to a vibrant economy; the perfect combination of business and pleasure.
Boca Raton offers some of the finest real estate you’ll find, and offers you the kind of lifestyle you deserve.
