Millennials don’t want the traditional massive homes and big yards. They want smaller homes and cool things to do...They are looking for the lifestyle...in other words...Toscana would be perfect for them! They can bike or take their car to trendy Delray Beach. It’s more important to have proximity to the lifestyle they want. Their living room could be the beach outside the condo!

Unit 201A in Toscana West is listed for $650,000. At an affordable price, it is the perfect place for a millennial:

The July 2017 Toscana Real Estate Newsletter is available to view!
How Are We Doing So Far in Toscana in 2017?
As of 7/26/2017:
- ONLY 10 condos sold in Toscana in 2017.
- We sold 3 of the 10 condos that closed in 2017. We sold 2 condos in Toscana North this year, and 1 in Toscana South.
- Unit 601, a Firenze model, sold for a record price ($350,000 higher than the last Firenze model in that building).
- We just sold unit 505, a Trevi model, also for a record price for the building (The last comparable Trevi in the same building on the 15th floor sold for $925,000. We sold this unit on the 5th floor (10 floors lower) for $955,000!
- We SOLD unit 1609 in Toscana South. This condo was for sale for 576 days with another agent and it did not sell! We listed this condo and personally showed this unit 29 times until we received a cash offer very close to full price!
- The average days on the market for our 3 condos sold in 2017 was 137 days (about 4 ½ months). The other company that also sold 3 listings this year had an average days on the market of 341 days (almost 1 year! A 7 month difference between the amount of time it took us to sell our listings, and the amount of time it took that company to sell their listings. That means, we sell our condos 40% faster than the other company. Please, keep in mind, that every month a property is vacant, it costs the owner thousands of dollars in taxes and condo/HOA dues, etc., so if the property takes an additional 7 months to sell with another broker, those expenses ($25,000+), need to be taken into consideration when calculating the seller’s bottom line.
- The Average Listing Price vs. Selling Price ratio for our 3 listings that sold in 2017 was 95% (which means, that our properties sold as an average, only 5% below asking price). The other company’s Listing Price vs. Selling Price ratio for their 3 listings was 87% (which means that the properties sold by that other company sold 13% below asking price).
- From Original Listing Price to actual Sold Price, our 3 properties that sold, had a total combined difference of ONLY $445,000. The other company’s 3 properties combined Original Listing Price to actual Sold Price was $1,509,000! Wow! That is over $1,000,000 more in price difference compared to our number. Why does this number matter to sellers? Well, that means that we don’t take overpriced listings. When we go to a listing appointment, we give the seller realistic numbers. Unfortunately, some other companies mislead the sellers to think that they can get more money for their properties so they get the listing. Basically, the dishonest agent will probably get the listing, which will ultimately cost the seller lots of money in the end, and most likely at a higher commission than what we charge. 
- We had no expired or cancelled listings in 2017 (Listings that did not sell during our listing period). The other company had 1 for sale listing that was cancelled.
- We had more listings sold with better results in 2017 in ALL of Toscana than any other company! Statistics matter!
- We also had 100% Toscana Client Satisfaction! The sellers of ALL of our 3 listings wrote us excellent reviews!

We are very proud of our report! It is AWESOME! View the FULL July 2017 Toscana Real Estate Newsletter here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3dEZlAciRciT3dBMld5emNEdUk/view?usp=sharing #Toscana #Sold #Realtors #A+ #HighlandBeach #FL #Condos #ForSale #ForRent #Rented

WOW! What an amazing review of our service. We almost cried...THIS is what makes it all worth it: the long hours, the hard work, and the craziness of our business. We are so thankful that this Toscana North owner, from unit 505, chose us to represent him. :)

Just SOLD in Toscana by Ben & Mayra Stern! We closed today.
Original price: $1,000,000. No price reductions. It sold in 83 days, cash, for $955,000. This unit, on the fifth floor in Toscana North , sold for a VERY good price. The last Trevi model that sold in Toscana North on the 15th floor (we were not involved in that transaction), sold for $925,000. A really low price :( , considering that condo, unit 1507, was 10 floors higher than the condo we just sold today.
Our listing price vs. sold price ratio was 96%.
We price our listings right from the beginning, they sell faster than the listings of most other agents, and our listings sell for a really good price. Plus, our client, the seller, is very happy with the service we provided. That is THE best news! Nothing like a satisfied customer.
