I agree wikipedia isn't ideal but it was a link I could post.

The census said Boca has 96K residents: https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/fa...rida/PST045216

The weak link in the numbers is counting the city of Boca vs. adding in west Boca which is outside city limits but still uses a Boca address.

Here is an example, this 3/2 house is listed for 697K......Note it sold in 1989 for 157K and is now asking over 4X that amount vs. the out west house losing 25% of its value over the last 30 years.
Sale History:
NOV-2003 $276,000
DEC-1992 $151,500
MAR-1989 $157,000

Real estate generally goes up with inflation but that is not always the case. Sometime areas get depressed and fall in value. If you have a crash like 2008 the numbers get messed up.

Some houses will recover faster other though will linger for what ever reason. I can say almost any community with a country club is not going to apreacate as much as anything else for good reason. Mandatory fees can really hurt values. The bigger issue for me is at these new levels how much lower are they going probly not a lot.

prior to the last 10 years Texas was the worst real estate investment in the county it simply sat stagnated in values. It's now the hottest market in the county and the gains are almost unreal.

You need to look forward for value not look behind.

There are one or two places in Boca, where a lot of Orthodox Jewish people live. They all seem to move to neighborhoods close to their Chabad, as they walk to services. One area is around the Palmetto and Poweline area. The other is Spanish River, in between 95 and 2nd Ave.
In reality, it means nothing. Boca is very diverse, and has tons of various faiths represented.

West Boca isn’t real Boca. It’s unincorporated PB County. You pay less taxes out west, but you also get County services, in exchange. Not a huge deal, but home resale favors 33431, 33486, and the coveted 33432.

I have kids, and you can find things to do. For me and my fair-skinned children, sun exposure and the heat is always a consideration. In fact, we often go to the park on Palmetto and Lyons, next to Our Lady of Lourdes church.

Speaking of that, Escondido is a nice neighborhood, north of Palmetto, on Lyons. I was going to buy in ther, until I found a home in Timbercreek

Thanks for your response. Nice to have someone answer respectfully when questioned. Good point on Boca's population. I've always considered Boca as fairly diverse. Spending 20 yrs in NYC the neighborhoods are somewhat territorial with whatever ethnic, religious,etc folks choose to live. I don't see that in Boca but I'm East of 95 and not up on the the areas that are West of the Turnpike.
