Seasonal Rental Shortage Drives Interest in Boca West Ownership

Posted on: September 14, 2021 | Read Time: 5 minutes

Every winter, Boca Raton becomes the epicenter for active golfers and those who enjoy an active social lifestyle of culinary delights, cultural diversions and sporting activities. It’s no wonder the demand or seasonal rentals has skyrocketed. The Florida real estate market has never been more competitive, and many seasonal rental visitors are left searching for new options.

Boca West Country Club is no exception. In fact, being named the #1 Private Residential Country Club lifestyle in the country has led to even greater demand for this private gated community that boasts four championship golf courses and more than 400,000 sq. ft. of resort-style amenities. With 55 individual villages and a wide range of residential offerings, there has never been such a drought of available properties within the community.

“Boca West was created with our Northeastern, Midwestern as well as visitors from across the country in mind,” says Stephann Cotton, managing broker. “We have a wide range of maintenance-free properties that are perfect for seasonal residents who come down to Boca Raton for shorter stays throughout the year.” In response to the increased demand, Boca West Realty developed a Renovator Program to update many of the available residences within the community. The program’s four private builders are nearing completion of many homes that will be available to the market in the coming months.

“The homes our renovators are completing are a great option for our seasonal residents who are looking to test the waters in the community, before making a larger investment,” says John Warsing, Executive Sales Director. “Homebuyers are choosing to purchase a fully renovated, move-in ready home at Boca West. Even after they include the price of membership and annual dues, it’s an extremely compelling price point that provides a great alternative to seasonal rentals.” From less than $300,000, Resident Members are enjoying the best-of-the-best country club lifestyle, a contemporary modern residence, and they have all the peace of mind of living in a completely updated home. “It’s a no brainer for many of our buyers coming out of the Northeast and Midwest markets, and they appreciate the low tax environment as well,” says Warsing.

Renovated Move-In Ready Homes

Working with some of the area’s finest builders, Gemini Homes, Hasey Construction and SFL Custom Design Builders, this renovation program is updating homes within the community and putting them back on the market at an unprecedented value. Buyers can choose from a wide variety fully furnished homes with designer touches in several communities within Boca West. Many homes are nearing completion in time for the 2022 winter season. Snowbirds are no longer looking to rent when owning a newly modernized home in a highly sought-after area is being offered at such compelling pricing.

High Demand for High Quality

Boca West Realty’s Renovator Program has already produced several residences which were purchased in short order. Each residence takes full advantage of the natural light and incorporates luxury finishes and fixtures. Many are designer furnished, offering a turnkey solution for those who want to avoid the headaches of completing a renovation themselves. Here’s a look at some of the completed residences.
