    #SoooBoca Loves Her Coffee!

    Coffee Plus #SoooBoca = A Successful Partnership!

    I don’t know about you but as a busy Realtor with listings and property showings “coffee” is a main food staple for this gal on the go! Sooo…today’s #SoooBoca’s “Five in the Hive” focus is coffee! Boca is a mecca for small business owners — this city takes pride in buying local and supporting our neighborhood shops. Of course we enjoy the occasional Starbucks or a quick pit stop at Dunkin’ Donuts, but what we really love is the home brewed stuff. The slow roasted, cozy sitting cup of coffee. That being said, today’s ‘Five in the Hive’ is salutes some of our local coffee shops! This will be on ongoing series so no worries…I will but updating and adding more local coffees spots!

    First on the list, is the sweet, quaint shop right off of Palmetto Park Road ‘The Seed.’ This spot popped up over night and since its curation has been a hometown favorite! Not only is the coffee toasty and amazing but the atmosphere is what elevates this cafe to the next level. The community tables are great for a large meet up and each seat has access to an outlet! If that doesn’t scream business meeting don’t know what does!

    For a more traditional coffee experience stop by ‘Saquellas.’ Located in the heart of downtown Boca this long standing Italian cafe is known for their creamy cappuccinos, lattes and all around smooth coffee. Pair it with any of the bakery items and you are sure to be drifting off into mid-morning heaven. Don’t worry about getting lost in the plaza, just keep an eye out for Saquellas signature red chairs and you will be one sip closer to our favorite iced latte.

    If cold brew coffee is on your agenda pop in at ‘Apura’ for an overnight brew that will get your wheels moving. Try the Vanilla Mocha Coffee, you definitely will not feel guilty about this yummy, sweet drink since it is made with all natural ingredients. This stop brews with intention, so you can be sure that anything you consume from Apura will be pure quality.

    There is nothing more french than cake and coffee. ‘Cote France Cafe’ is known for their authentic french pastries and steamy cups of caffeine goodness. Much like the sweet avenues of France this cafe is located on a cozy corner in the midst of Royal Palm Plaza — if you blink you may miss it. It is the perfect place for an after lunch pick me up or a feel good sweet.

    New kid on the block ‘R1 Coffee, is just now making their debut on the coffee scene here in Boca Raton. Check them out over on Federal Highway and see what they are all about. Try a classic espresso or ask to check out their daily coffee menu..yes you read that correctly — DAILY COFFEE MENU. Sip and splurge over Boca’s newest cafe.

    Now that you have the buzz on some of  Boca’s coffee scene get to sipping some brew and let us know  your favorite joint on our Facebook page ‘#Sooo Boca.’ so we can buzz on over and enjoy!

    FAQs Answered by the Pros

    What steps should I take to prepare my home for sale?

    There are several things you need to know before listing your home for sale!
    A frequently asked question from home seller’s before listing is what steps should
    be taken before listing their home. Not properly preparing a home for sale can
    put a home owner at a huge disadvantage.

    The expression “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” is absolutely
    true when it comes to selling a home. When selling a home you must be sure that
    your home presents itself in the best possible light.

    Making sure clutter is at a minimum, freshly painting rooms, installing new carpeting,
    or ensuring odors are non-existent are just a handful of things that should be done
    before listing your home for sale.

    Single Females Are a Growing Market Force

    NAR_RM_CoBrand

    Great article! One thing I warn my buyers about is third parties like well meaning friends or family members who might also have a little envy issues that you are able to buy your first home or condo. It may skew the feedback you get from them.  Just food for thought. If you want a fabulous buying experience, connect with us via text, email or through our website at The Bellisari Real Estate Group!

    DAILY REAL ESTATE NEWS | WEDNESDAY, MARCH 02, 2016

    Since the early 1990s, single women have outnumbered their male counterparts, snatching up real estate at nearly double the rate, according to the National Association of REALTORS®. But this year they’re on a roll, and experts don’t expect that to stop anytime soon.

    Single women accounted for 15 percent of all home buyers—the second largest segment of home buyers behind married couples, according to NAR’s 2015 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers. Many experts predict their numbers will continue this increase in coming years, particularly as their average incomes have significantly risen over the last few years.

    The median age of single female home buyers is 50, according to NAR. The majority are drawn to single-family homes with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Location matters, too. “They often want to buy to be close to friends or family,” says Jessica Lautz, NAR’s managing director of survey research and communications.

    Mary MacDiarmid, a broker with @properties in Chicago, told The Chicago Tribune she’s worked with several single women purchasing condos. She says about a decade ago, this type of clientele routinely brought their parents to showings. Now, she says they do it on their own: “They’re not looking for someone else’s approval.”
