Donald Trump's Ridiculous 27-foot-wide Jupiter Entrance Sign

July 30th, 2016

The cast-stone and gold-plated lettered signage looks more like billboards along the super high visible streets of Alternate A1A in Jupiter and Donald Ross Road which straddles both Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens. Originally a Ritz-Carlton development, the original smaller entrance sign was on Donald Ross Road and was shared with The Bear’s Club. The Bear’s Club has only 68 residents and they are a who’s who of celebrities who like to keeper a lower profile, like Michael Jordan and his massive estate.

Donald Trump purchased the club in 2012. The facility has 74 resident estates, a golf course, a clubhouse, and hosts lavish parties and weddings. Donald Trump recently held a memorable press conference there where he peddled Trump Water, Trump Steaks, and a host of other Trump products.

Trump National kept a lower profile as well but recently had the small sign defaced. While that was fixed, these huge 27-f00t super wide Trump signs just popped out of nowhere. How Trump got this enormously wide sign approved is a mystery. Longtime mayor, Karen Golanka, just retired, so perhaps Trump cut a deal with new mayor Todd Wodraska who just took office on March 23, 2016. Whatever the case, Golanka worked hard over her 25 years as mayor to have tasteful development in Jupiter. Alternate A1A and Donald Ross Road always had nice setbacks and tasteful signage to keep Jupiter looking first class. One wonders why new Mayor Wodraska approved these ultra-wide Trump signs.

Modern & Asian Home Trend | Moving Away From British West Indies

July 29th, 2016

We saw 3 brand new homes, $9-12 million homes, and WOW! one was the most beautiful merger of architecture and interior design I had ever seen. What I can report is that the movement is continuing towards contemporary/modern/Asian and beginning to move a step or 3 away from British West Indies. We loved what we saw. Less pure white or white on white and more contrast with wood flooring in brown, combined with white and grey. A touch more contrast and warmth. See-thru staircases, glass and twisted wire. Ceiling features with contemporary hanging inserts, continued growth of man-made materials replacing marbles and combos of both.

Buying vs Renting | The Financial Benefits

July 23rd, 2016

Buying vs Renting

Buying your first home is a big step and there are many benefits to buying over renting, with the top renter disadvantages being:

  1. You have few tax incentives.
  2. You have no control over rental amounts and terms changing.
  3. Your rent money goes toward paying off your landlord’s mortgage and building their equity instead of going towards building equity of your own.
  4. You are often restricted on making any changes to the dwelling.
  5. Stricter pet restrictions.

One of the main things that buyers who are on the fence might want to know is what are the monetary advantages of buying over renting? The table below shows the average savings a homeowner can expect over 5 years when purchasing a 3BR home vs renting the same home. (***Does not include homeowner’s or renter’s insurance costs, or tax savings from deducting mortgage interest when owning a home).

COSTS

RENT

PURCHASE

Purchase Price of Home $250,000
Down Payment (3.5% with FHA Loan) $8,750
Estimated Monthly Payment (based on 3.5% interest rate, 4.5 APR) $1,800 $1,102
Yearly Property Tax Rate (Based on a 1.3% rate for Palm Beach County with the $50,000 homestead exemption) $2,600
Total Payments (over 5 years) $108,000 $87,870

 

Over 5 years, the homeowner in this scenario would have saved $20,130. The value of the home would also rise due to appreciation. If the homeowner were to sell the home after 5 years at the current average rate of appreciation, they could sell the home for around $330,000, making close to $100,000 in profit. A renter would not have this benefit.
