Hot real estate trends for the new year

With the economy continuing to recover, South Florida homebuyers are feeling confident and ready to purchase a new home. Today’s homebuyers are educated, more sophisticated, and they have been patiently waiting for the right time to make their move. Now is not the time to settle, they want it all.

Modern Design: In 2016, many homebuyers have “been there, done that” with Mizneresque homes with history and character. They want modern appliances, energy-efficiency, innovative features, spacious kitchens, and open floor plans with a contemporary, fresh, new décor.

Going Social.  Private residential club communities allow homebuyers to take full advantage of the Florida weather with golf, tennis and pickle ball. Boca West already ranked the #1 Residential Private Club in the Nation, is expanding its facilities to over 300,000 sq. ft. providing the ultimate experience for sports, spa, dining, events and entertainment without leaving the neighborhood.

Service & Convenience:  Eliminating the extra maintenance of a single-family home, condominium owners can spend less time caring for their residences and more time traveling and living life to the fullest. Homebuyers in 2016 want the ability to turn off the lights, lock the front door and leave for extended periods of time without worrying about their home.

Health & Wellness: Today’s homebuyers have an expanded interest in health and wellness. They want fitness centers that not only provide state-of-the-art exercise equipment for aerobic and strength training, but personal training, yoga, meditation and Pilates. Spa services and resort-style pools are preferred for post-workout relaxation.

In Boca Raton, Akoya at Boca West delivers all of the above and more. Akoya, priced from the $800s, was conceived as a way to bring true modern design to a resort-style private club community and provide the highest-quality living experience.
