For today's Boca Luxury Condo blog, we explore more affordable ways to reinvent your condo aesthetic. Not everything that says "luxury" has to be expensive, and it's often the way we express ourselves through our style, rather than the brands and products themselves that communicate the lifestyle we hope to lead. Read on and learn more about how to spend wisely, save money, and live the luxury lifestyle you've dreamed of!
Allow More Natural Lighting
This could be as cheap as free, and if not requires a simple replacement or removal of whatever window coverings you may currently have. Natural light has been shown to improve outcomes in hospitalized patients, but it doesn't take extreme circumstances to benefit from the life-enhancing effects of natural light, especially as you rise in the mornings.
Replace Curtains, Sheets, Pillowcases, and Other Replaceable Upholstery
We don't expect you to desecrate your upholstery in pursuit of something...
When new Boca Raton condo buyers begin their search, the first thing that often comes to mind is luxury. Yet, amidst all the natural incentives, like our majestic waterfrontage, among the preeminent reasons to choose South Florida are the tax incentives. Firstly, the lack of a state income tax is among the most discussed reasons to work, live, and own property in Florida. Secondly, is the ever-popular Florida Homestead Exemption, built to mitigate some of the highest expenses as homeowners: property taxes. Read along and learn more, as we keep you attuned to the latest and most significant property laws, taxes, and new developments that may benefit you!
What Do I Need To Qualify?
To qualify for the Florida Homestead Exemption you must provide/meet the following requirements:
- A Valid State ID
- An FL Vehicle Registration Number
- A Florida Voter's ID
Boca Raton's condo market is one of the most resplendent and valued in the world. Though much of Boca Raton's luxury condo pricing is contingent on the usually expected valuation factors, Boca Raton and South Florida at large are unique natural and geographical spaces to consider. For your information, we're delivering the 4 main factors that affect your condo value. For more condo value insights and ways to improve your luxury condo lifestyle, stay tuned to the Champagne & Parisi blog for more!
The three most important words in Real Estate are... location, location, and location! However, when our luxury condo market includes options for private beachfront and boat slips, the difference of a couple of miles, and in some cases even a few hundred yards, can make a difference in millions. As always, Intracoastal access and direct oceanfront are different, but the most drastic difference between location-based pricing is simple: are you on the water, or not?
The City of Boca Raton has begun to construct the new Brightline Station. Slated to complete within the year, the city plans to wield one of the most significant infrastructural additions to South Florida in recent decades to accommodate its increasingly large population. We dug into the details and made sure you're as prepared as can be for the new upgrade to our infrastructure, how you can enjoy it, and what you should know for visitors to our city.
Where Will It Be?
The Brightline Station will be officially addressed at 680 Yamato Rd, Boca Raton, FL 33431. The station is located within proximity to Mizner Park and the Boca Raton Library. In 2019, Brightline sent their official letter to the city of Boca Raton as a potential destination along its growing Florida route. In December of that year, the City Council approved the site. The site will include a 455-car parking garage to accommodate both passengers and patrons of the adjacent library. Ground broke this past January 25th.
When Will It Be Done?
As of now, the clearest idea of completion is within the 4th Quarter of 2022. As of this writing (August 10th, 2022), there...

It's no secret that Boca Raton is a boaters paradise. Much like many parts of South Florida, the unique aquatic infrastructure allows for both oceanfront and Intracoastal access. The barrier islands that represent our beach access provide ample ground for high-end waterfront real estate, yet are far from the only opportunities for luxuriant waterfront living.

With the shoe on the other foot, it's your time to shine! When sitting down with your prospective Realtor, it's as important as ever to know the most important questions to ask. Yet, unlike a traditional job evaluation, the inquisition your Realtor shows can make or break their understanding of your needs, and potentially leave you in a subpar position. Be sure to look for these 5 lines of inquiry, as they will show without answering whether your Realtor is really working their hardest to understand your unique and personal needs.
What Housing Needs Do You Have, And What Is Your Price Range?
This is the most basic means to set expectations, and to govern the home search your Realtor will embark on for you. Every Realtor should break your desires into two columns: needs and wants. If you are bringing children, you need to be near good schools, but you might want an outdoor pool. Obviously, no home buyer can attain what they cannot afford, so your total price range is the umbrella that both columns rest beneath. Home buying is a very personal experience, and your Realtor should be aware of what you need and offer...
