Highland Beach Real Estate Quarterly Market Update | (Q1 2024)

Highland Beach market update (q1, 2024)

Highland Beach is the most unique municipality we will review in this year's series of marketing updates. With only 2 registered businesses, no schools, no traffic lights, and just over a mile of area from end to end, Highland Beach is an interesting city to review. Though it is just a few feet from both Boca Raton and Delray Beach, cities that offer much in the way of arts, entertainment, and fine dining, Highland Beach residents often move here to live a serene life on perpetual vacation. All residents, whether they be condos, townhomes, or the limited single-family homes available, reside on the waterfront. With a small year-round population and significantly smaller sample size than its neighbors, the data we elucidate to you should be taken with a grain of salt, more than any other market update blog we've written. This isn't to say that there is no credibility to the data. After all, we wouldn't write this if it wasn't worth reading. However, the smaller the sample size, the more vastly results can differ with less intervention. Read on and see how we interpret these 4 key metrics.

Why Real Estate Is Still The Best Long Term Investment

why real estate is the best long term investment

With the shaky economy we're currently experiencing, many have likened these dark financial times to the great recession of 2008. However, there are stark differences that one should know before making such an association. Housing and subpar housing loans were at the epicenter of the collapse in 2008, but while they are affected by our economy, they are not the focal point of the downturn. Instead, housing prices have ebbed and flowed during the COVID-19 pandemic and in the few years that followed, mainly following market forces pushed towards South Florida thanks in part to the draconian policies that shuttered businesses in many of our most popular cities. Following the corrective actions of the Federal Reserve, housing prices in Highland Beach have now begun to plateau, and in some cases fall. If anything, the troubles of our current economy only endorses the foundational principles of real estate investment. Your Highland Beach condo may not be worth the astronomical (and honestly, unnatural) price tag it was in 2021, but that does not make it a bad investment. Here are some of the most important things to remember when considering Highland Beach real estate and why it's still, and always will be, a strong investment.
