It's been a tough winter around the country. Every state except for Florida has had some form of snow, ice, and extremely cold temperatures this winter already, and we are not even a month into the winter season. However, Florida remains cozy and warm.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, nearly 60% of the United States is snow-covered as of today. Many of the southern states are covered in ice or sleet but it is very cold and frozen in many places in the country. There are even snows on the slopes of Mauna Kea in Hawaii.
The snow in the South and mid-Atlantic is starting to thought but highs are only in the 20s to 30s and most places around the country.
But, what is it doing in Palm Beach County? Oh, it's a warm 72° with a low of just 66°. Our highs have been in the mid to upper 70s, which is a great temperature for comfortable living, however, many Floridians may actually be cold with lows dipping down in the 60s. Joke all you want, we live here for a specific reason. We like to stay warm most of the year and even though it can get a humid 100° in the dead of summer, we usually won't dip below 60 in the winter. This keeps a lot of people here year-round and his snowbirds coming back year after year.
This is also one of our busiest seasons when it comes to real estate. A lot of people don't like to move in the dead of summer, even though that's when most of the country is moving. It's hard to look at homes that may have not had air conditioning in a few months in 100° heat maturing homes in 70° weather is much more comfortable. Winter, January, and February are actually some of our busiest months and there are plenty of homes on the market but competition is still pretty strict. Having a great real estate agent on your side that not only knows the market but the individual neighborhoods throughout Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter Florida makes all the difference in the world.
