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…

Palm Beach County is open for business and the world is listening. In the past few weeks Palm Beach County has secured large investments from two national companies.

Elliot Management, a $41-billion dollar hedge fund out of New York, recent announced plans to move into the Phillips Point complex in West Palm Beach. The short-term lease is temporary space until Elliott can open more permanent offices of at least 25,000 square feet. The likely landing spot, according to the Palm Beach Post is 360 Rosemary, the new office building under construction by Related Cos. at Rosemary Square, according to two real estate sources. By establishing West Palm Beach as its headquarters, the firm will be able to escape New York's high taxes.

It may be ready to break out the pumpkins and fall jackets in a lot of the U.S. but here in South Florida, our summer weather continues to roll on! Instead of hayrides and apple orchards, why not fire up the boat head out on water for a weekend at the Sandbar. Here are three of our favorites to consider:

Stuart/Hutchinson Island:

The Stuart sandbar is located just inside the St. Lucie Inlet, and just east of the convergence of the St. Lucie River and Indian River Lagoon. The closest boat ramp is Sandsprit Park. You can rent boats at the Sundance Marina in Jensen Beach. There is also excellent fishing and snorkeling in the area, which is known as the “sailfish flats.”

The old song and dance of moving to Florida for retirement is still moving and grooving but that doesn’t mean you have to take up golf or knitting. The Sunshine State has never been more attractive for business owners to start new or bring their already accomplished Co. and Inc down south. Here are a few reasons why Florida is the haven you need for your business. 

 Tax Advantage

Florida has long been an attractive state for tax-conscious individuals and families because it doesn’t have an individual income tax. Plus, the state has garnered attention for its favorable business taxes. In 2019, the state ranked 4th on The Tax Foundation’s State Business Tax Climate Index, which shows how well states structure their tax systems and provide a road map…

If you’re from Florida, you already know, but if you’re new to the area, a large part of experiencing everything Florida has to offer is by eating what the natives eat- FISH! Saving the best for last, here are the top 10 best fish to eat in Florida!

10. Kingfish

Some may wonder why Kingfish even made this list, but the truth is that South Florida consumes a ridiculous amount of it. Also known as king mackerel, Kingfish is not known as one of the best fish to eat in Florida on its own merit. It tastes quite “gamey” because of its high oil content.
