Buying a Home in Florida: Things To Know

Why is Hurricane Impact Important to Have?

Don't underestimate the value of Hurricane Impact Windows and Hurricane Garage Bay Doors. These are of KEY importance in Florida. This home is equipped with both.  If you see a listing that says "storm protection" ....that is not the same as Hurricane Impact. 


Unlike being on the intracoastal, you will not be forced to evacuate from Long Lake Estates. Not only does hurricane impact protect you against the weather, it insulates against the heat and sun year-round, protects your home's interior from harmful UV rays and increases security, helping to keep your insurance and air-conditioning costs low.  Added bonus: this home comes equipped with a full house generator should you need it.


Shutters: in the face of a forecasted hurricane it can be difficult to find anyone available to help you put them up.  Everyone is very busy preparing their own home.  

New to Florida ? Wondering why homes in other communities are sited on such small lots?

Most homes in Florida are built on very small lots (0.20 to 0.35 acres). Buildings are sited ten to fifteen feet from each other. Typically you have very little outdoor space and very little privacy in these other developments. Long Lake Estates is one of the handful of communities in Boca Raton that prioritizes land, giving you and your family the peace and privacy that is hard to find elsewhere. Each of the 125 custom homes in Long Lake is sited on a one acre + lot.  The property at 8235 Twin Lake measures 180 ft wide and 280 feet deep (45,620 sq ft.)

Hidden costs in new development construction?

Some new communities are building hundreds of new homes.  New construction noise will be part of the new lifestyle as the developer builds out the rest of the development homesites. Those new homes, all very similar, compete directly against one another at resale time. 


Pools in new developments are typically very small and have a standard depth of four feet. Something as simple as choosing a larger and/or deeper pool could add on another $30-$50,000 to your hidden build costs. This property offers a 16 x 34 ft deep water pool surrounded by a gorgeous, french-cut limestone patio to enjoy in the privacy of your one acre lush, manicured oasis. 


Did you know that when the developer of a large community is finished building, they typically stop subsidizing the HOA fees?  Those monthly costs often go up after. Long Lake Estates is an established community with HOA fees that have been $451 per month for the past decade. 


What about resale and future flexibility?

This property offers the most unique aspects of homeownership in Boca Raton; privacy, land and security. New development communities have only a few model homes to choose from, and they continue to build more and more of the same: very cookie-cutter with all the same interior choices throughout the development.


If you are contemplating purchase of a home in a new development, keep in mind that many more homes of the exact same models will be built on the same quarter acre lots. In a few years resale of your newly built home could be competing with similar, newer construction in the same community or one nearby.  


With 8235 Twin Lake you can better protect the value of your investment based on the land value alone. In addition, this home offers a very large deep water pool (a $40,000 add-on in new development construction) along with a completely fenced, soccer-field-size yard - great for kids and pets! Land value, unique features, flexibility.

Why doesn't Long Lake have upfront costs and equity membership?

Monthly HOA in Long Lake Estates is $451. There is no upfront equity membership in Long Lake Estates. However, owning a home elsewhere in a club community typically requires an upfront payment for equity membership that can range from $30,000-$135,000 and is often non-refundable along with a yearly spend charge.
