Standard Pacific Homes subdivisions at Julia Gardens in Coconut Creek and Monterey in Boynton Beach are terrific values for beautiful new townhouses with fabulous attention to detail and use of space. The sales staff at both subdivisions are friendly and knowledgeable.
We recently brought our buyers to these developments, and believe it or not, no one had any negative comments. In fact, one of our buyers decided to take advantage of the builder closeout prices and purchased a unit at Julia Gardens.
Julia Gardens is located off of Hillsboro Blvd. just east of Lyons Road. Prices range from approximately $230,000 to $240,000 depending on which floor plan you choose and optional upgrades. The Hibiscus Model is 3 bedrooms, 2 ½ baths,…

As the saying goes, “There's nothing half as pleasant as coming home again.”The path to owning a home is an exciting time that will bring many rewards for you and your family.

Aside from a strong mining industry, asbestos entered the state of Florida in many industrial and domestic products. Potential Boca Raton home buyers and those…

Federal Reserve Expected to Keep Interest Rates Low
The Federal Reserve met last week, and with the U.S. Economy entering a second year of recession, it is anticipated that the Feds will keep interest rates at all time lows for awhile and probably until the end of the year.

They also are buying mortgage-backed securities guaranteed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae in an effort to help the housing market. President Obama and Congress are working swiftly to enact a $825 billion economic stimulus package too.
This is all good…

Red Reef Golf Course in Boca Raton
The City of Boca Raton Red Reef Park Executive 9 Hole Golf Course is part of the Red Reef Park located between the Intracoastal and the beach on North Ocean Blvd. approximately .75 miles north of Palmetto Park and 2 miles south of Spanish River Boulevard on A1A. Designed by Joe Palloka and first opened in 1957.
I enjoy playing the course. Residents of the City of Boca Raton can purchase a membership card with substantial savings in fees. Golf carts are also available for an additional cost or you can walk the 1,241 yards, par 3 - par 4 course. I especially enjoy the surrounding beach atmosphere. If you are a beginner, this course is perfect.
