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),...
In many ways, Real Estate retains its old-school methodology compared to other industries, like retail and entertainment. The amount of time spent behind the wheel, on the phones, and speaking directly with clients has allowed the digital age to drag Realty along without completely disposing of traditional marketing and business practices. Yet, even in a field dominated by intrapersonal skills and sheer work ethic, there are many newfangled ideas and methods brought in by these winds of change. Here are 5 ways modern technology is changing real estate, and how you can be ready for the next big thing.
Use Of Big Data
"Big Data" is not a phrase used to describe the conspiratorial notion that "data" is up to no good, in the same way, we'd colloquially describe "big pharma" or "big oil." "Big Data" is simply a means to describe the sheer capacity and volume of informational intake that modern technology affords us. With larger data sets, the ability to retrieve key data immediately, and real-time statistical reporting, Realtors possess the ability to influence decisions and inform clients with information that massively exceeds what was once available.
We'd say Podcasts are the "future," but they are very much a part of the present. Some of the most popular entertainment of all time has been fed to us via streaming podcasts - most notably the likes of Joe Rogan, among millions of others. With podcasts, we have instant access to (usually) commercial free content tailored exactly to our interests. Rather than sifting through hours of commercials and unimportant information, podcasts grant us the capacity to listen efficiently. With how much time our Champagne & Parisi Realtors spend on the road working for you, we'd be remiss not to share some their favorite Real Estate podcasts that pace the industry and provide value with every listen. Here are 5 Real Estate podcasts that every Realtor should listen to - and why.
Real Estate Today
A podcast created by the National Association of Realtors, Real Estate Today functions in the same light as its title: a top-down overview of the Real Estate market and profession. Functioning similarly to standard news, the hosts banter about the news affecting our national market, and trending topics such as new ...
