Where to Buy a New House in Palm Beach County

Posted by Jeremy Olsher on Thursday, May 12th, 2022 at 1:41pm.

If you’ve been following the current real estate market in Palm Beach County, you’re aware that there’s been a massive increase in demand for the sunny south Florida lifestyle. People are moving down here from all over the US, and new construction communities are being built to keep up with the influx.

If you're interested in purchasing, designing, and building a brand-new home, we've compiled a list below of some of the hottest new communities where you can make it happen.

When purchasing a new construction home, you may have questions about lot selection, the lottery process, selecting upgrades, or simply where to even start. If you have any questions about these communities or how building a new home works, I am happy to answer them or take you to see the models in person. But in order for me to represent you, the communities require that I am present on your first in-person visit, or you must give my name at the sales center. Call or text me (Jeremy) any time at 561-400-3737.

And now, here are some of the hottest new construction communities in Palm Beach County, Florida:
