The housing experts say the market is “normalizing.” But what does that mean for the Palm Beaches? Will home prices in Palm Beach County and rents finally come down? Will more homes go up for sale? And what does the year ahead have in store for the real estate market?
“The nation’s housing market, after a wild surge that sent home prices up over 30 percent in some cities in 2021, will be less intense next year”, according to Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Association of Realtors (NAR).
The NAR 2022 housing forecast anticipates the market will continue slowing down from the frenzy seen in the spring when prices shot up to new heights. However, prices will stay high, inventory will remain tight, and mortgage rates will rise. Other…

On the heels of last week's charity golf event that saw Dustin Johnson, Rory Mcllroy, Rickie Fowler, and Mathew Wolff raise over $5 million dollars for Coronavirus relief efforts, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson took to the golf course Sunday to do the same, and they brought some friends with them.
Joined by Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and retired NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, the four took to the links at Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound and raised $20 million for COVID-19 charities.
While Tiger and Peyton defeated Mickelson and Brady 1-up to win the match, the real winners were not just the fans at home who got to watch live golf for the second straight week, but also all the charities that will benefit from the money raised.

The Town of Jupiter’s Loxahatchee River Center, located at 805 North U.S. Highway One, invites you to flutter on over to the first Atala Butterfly Festival and Family Day. On Saturday, Feb. 29, 2020 will be celebrating the Atala butterfly! Once thought to be extinct, this beautiful butterfly is local and flourishing in our own backyard.
The Atala is a small colorful butterfly in the family Lycaenidae. It is found in southeastern Florida, the Bahamas, Cuba, the Cayman Islands, and on other Caribbean islands. Its coloration and habits are unique among butterflies within its scale. Due to the decline in the butterfly’s host plant, triggered by overharvesting the root of the plant for starch by early settlers, the Atala butterfly was thought to be…

Leaving the house without my dog is probably the most guilt-inducing part of my day. When she realizes I’m leaving, she flashes those sad puppy dog eyes hoping I change my mind. It’s the worst!

It may be easy to bring them along, but besides obeying posted rules in the area, dogs do need a little special attention in order to make sure you both have tons of comfortable fun in the sun!

If you’re from the Jupiter area, you probably have many childhood memories splashing around the shallow lagoon of DuBois Park. Some of the best family time of my childhood was spent searching for crabs, attempting to catch small fish with a toy net in the mangroves, and eating grilled hotdogs on the warm sand.
While the unique estuary is a joy to explore, there is also a rich history behind DuBois Park. At the top of the “Indian mound”, a large pile of mollusk shells built by indigenous Native Americans, in the center of the park is a house made of Florida pine that was once home to early Florida pioneers, Harry and Susan DuBois. Harry bought 18 acres south of the Jupiter Inlet that he had long admired for its ridge of Indian shell mound, and he needed…

Blowing Rocks Preserve is like no other beach along the Florida Atlantic coast. Sandy beach is complimented by unique geological rock formations. Waves interact with these natural structures to produce a beautiful geyser show in some areas, and if you come here on a calm day you can see lots of marinelife and sea turtles below.
This beach is always clean and relatively quieter than other public beaches, and there are gorgeous mangrove-lined trails if you’re up for a little exploring. If you plan to do a lot of walking, bring water shoes or sneakers as the sand does get hotter on your feet throughout the day.
If you want to see the reason why it’s called “blowing rocks”, make sure you go at high tide!
