Jupiter homes for sale



Jupiter Home Report

 Welcome to our Newsletter

This week we saw home sales in Jupiter drop to 57 homes from 73 last week. This can be expected as summer continues and we should see a few weeks more of home sales in the 50-60 range as school is starting in about a month. Anyone looking to move here for school should be closing in the next several weeks. Rentals remain strong for single family homes as buyers may not be finding the exact home so they have decided to rent until they find that perfect home. The average single family 3-4 bedroom home is bring $3,000 per month plus or minus maybe 10% and there just aren't many available.

This week I spent looking at homes in communities such as Evergrene, Paseos, Egret Landing and Abacoa. We were looking for a pool home and I was surprised how few there really were available. Evergrene is a wonderful gated community in Palm Beach Gardens with homes ranging from 1,550 sq. ft to over 4,000. Most are two story homes with a few one level models available. The attraction of Evergrene is the incredible clubhouse and pool area. By far one of the best you will find in the Jupiter area. There are just 22 homes for sale in Evergrene and home prices have risen about 10% since last year. The homes that are available range in price from $200,000 to the high $500,000 right now. There are no larger homes on the market right now. $500,000 will get you about 3,000 sq. ft under air. The clubhouse has a fitness center, aerobics room, kid's room, banquet hall and a few other specialty rooms. The pool is fabulous and one of the largest pools you will find in the area. They also have two spas, a Tiki bar and a kid's water park area. This is  a must see for families and snowbirds. It is as close to Resort style living you will find in a non member club.

I did see a few nice homes out there, one in Egret Landing, a few nice Abacoa homes, one on the large lots in Martinique which actually give you a true back yard and one in Paseos. Not really that many choices out there.

You hear me mention the Bluffs homes in Jupiter throughout the year and we are seeing just 6 homes for sale in this community of over 900 homes. Three of the six sit on the two least desirable streets in the community which abut US 1. I have always said this is the best value for beach area homes in Jupiter. They are well built and we are seeing prices push upwards of near $400,000 for original condition homes in here. With the low inventory levels we should see prices continue to trend upward.


I want to talk about home inspections and wind mitigation reports which are terms you will run across when buying a home. Everyone has heard of the home inspection but what is a wind mitigation report? With the ever increasing building code requirements and insurance companies trying to protect themselves against hurricane damage we have what is called a wind mitigation report. Even if you are buying a condo the association will have a wind mitigation report that you will need to get interior content/liability insurance for your condo. The wind mitigation report is a 4 page document which addresses several items of building construction.

Probably the biggest discount/credits you will receive will come from a new roof. Newer roofs have stricter codes for attaching the plywood to the trusses. Even on older homes this will be a big help in getting a discount on insurance. The other item they look at is a hip roof or a gabled end roof. The hip roof is the roof of choice for the best rates. You can have a certain percentage of gabled ends on a hip roof for maximum wind credits. Other items they look at is shutter protection over you windows and /or impact glass and lastly is a Miami Dade garage door. When looking at two story homes either accordion shutters or impact glass is preferred as you won't want to get on a ladder and install hurricane panels 16ft in the air. They also look at other items such as strapping of trusses to the structure, CBS or frame construction. Homes built after 2005 will meet the strictest codes to date. Wind credits can reduce your insurance premiums by 40 to 50%. Still expect a $3,000 insurance bill for a $300,000 house. If you have any questions about the wind mitigation report feel free to call me.
