Summer/Off-Season: The Best Time to Buy

Posted On: 06-18-2010



While many are thinking of cool weather retreats this time of year, smart investors are returning to Palm Beach, FL to pick up deals on prime properties, at a fraction of already reduced asking prices. 


With prime and prestigious properties selling at 30% to 50% below sub market asking prices, this may be the best time to buy in a generation.


Three recent closings best exemplify this trend. The most notable is the oceanfront estate at 1530 South Ocean, located in the Estate Section of Palm Beach. The 4 bedroom, 4 bath, 7,179 sq-ft home, with its own oceanfront parcel, sold for $6.5 million (6/18/10) down from an original asking price of $13.5 million (and a subsequent reduction to $9.9 million). A price reduction of 52%.


686 Island Drive, a direct Intracoastal property featuring 5 bedrooms, 7 baths and 10,990 sq-ft., sold for $10.355 million, originally asking $14.95 million (6/15/10), a discount of 31%.


14 Golfview Road, a landmarked Marion Sims Wyeth, located steps from Worth Ave, 4 bedroom, 5 baths, 6,229 sq-ft., closed for $4.319 million (6/15/10), down from an asking price of $5.85 million, a discount of 27%.


This truly is a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity for buyers. Anyone who buys now will look brilliant in five years.
