What area are all those other things you mentioned planned for...I have a house in Jupiter that I'm going back to try and sell soon.
we had our money on boca but you won in jupiter. i still think boca was the smarter site but one lone commissioner voted north because a developer there gave her low income constituents $5 million or so which she gets to distribute. i wasn't upset that she got paid off, only that boca didn't double the offer.
boca housing prices would have gotten a huge boost. in the northern county, where there is still land, the boost will be less felt but the confidence level sure goes up. benefits should run throughout south(east) florida and trickle the state in general.
there is a split site at abacoa in jupiter and in palm beach gardens for scripps. but the entire tri-county area of dade, broward and palm beach is being targeted for the biotech. teaching hospital currently in dade has a $700 + million expansion planned, fau in boca is cranking up a new medical college complete with teaching hospital and heart & cancer centers. the harvard-associated hospital will probably go in jupiter. all this should bring in venture capitalists and so an industry is born.
as to your jupiter house, now might not be the time to sell. as maximillion notes, we have taken a downturn since last season. realtors i've had to my house suggest the market will come back by year's end barring another hurricane bashing us. seems the biggest losses are in spec condos with single family losing some but not as much. inventory has gone from a two month's supply to a year's supply and houses are no longer selling overnight but might actually take 90 days if priced right. some people see a bubble, other's a dip. i think it just went back to normal.

ya, no need unless you like eavesdropping or just a sense of still being in the u.s.a.
between spanish and other international tourists, you can walk five blocks down here before hearing english.
