Housing in Boca Raton

Boca Raton is one of the fastest growing cities in Palm Beach County. 

Once a seasonal beach town, Boca  is now attracting young, affluent families looking to  relocate to a community with great schools, top notch health care and -one that is conveniently located close to airports and major roadways, such as I-95.  Boca Raton is perfectly situated between West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale and the highly-rated colleges and growing downtown area, are welcoming a young, sophisticated and vibrant clientele. 

Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club is one of the few exclusive gated communities  offering golf, tennis, and yachting -all within its gates. Located east of U.S.1 and minutes to Boca’s downtown, Royal Palm has held the demand in real estate since it was originally developed in the late 1950’s.

Housing prices range from $1 million to $18 million, and those prices continue to rise year after year. Royal Palm is across the street from Boca’s iconic Boca Raton Resort and Club. Luxury home builder, J.P. DiMisa of J.P. DiMisa Luxury Homes put it perfectly, when he said “I grew up in Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club as a kid. Now, I’m lucky that I get to work in my childhood neighborhood,  creating amazing new homes for our neighbors, and helping to shape the streets that my kids now play on.”

Another popular gated community in Boca Raton is The Sanctuary.  This ultra exclusive community is located just north of Boca’s downtown area and is east of U.S. 1. The Sanctuary is smaller in size compared to Royal Palm’s community, but it continues to raise the value of the real estate in the area.  The community prides itself on their tree lined, secure streets and gorgeous marina. Seventy percent of the homes have deep-water docks, right in their backyards, and are protected from the Intracoastal by Florida’s beautiful natural mangroves, which also  provides the residents with the privacy  many  look for when  searching for a home.   

Woodfield Country Club is located west of I-95, in central Boca Raton. Woodfield is ideal for the affluent buyer, looking for a resort style lifestyle. There are 20 subdivisions within this large gated community. The diverse community is made up of young families moving to the area for both the public and private schools, the golf course, and the year-round activities and amenities available at the luxurious country club. Their extensive renovation to the pool and fitness facility have since attracted the older residents with grandchildren, and young families alike.

Boca Raton was once solely known as a prestigious vacation spot, but over the past 30 years has experienced a wealth of growth in both the business and housing sectors, and is now a place where many people call home.   Families young and old are coming to Boca and staying. With its gorgeous housing communities, top-notch restaurants, unparalleled shopping destinations, its beautiful architecture and diverse culture, there is little doubt that Boca Raton will continue to attract future residents.
