It is easy to see why Boca Raton’s Boca Bayou is a popular choice for those looking for a second home where they can enjoy sunshine and warm breezes all winter. 

Boca Raton has everything you could want in a winter retreat, including beautiful beaches, outdoor activities, parks, shopping, recreational activities, arts and culture, great restaurants and much more. And since Covid-19 swept the nation, changing the way we work, study, shop and play – in other words, the way we live – Boca’s advantages have emerged in even greater relief. 

The Security of a Second Home

When the number of cases of Covid-19 spiked, families all across the country looked for safe havens. Those fortunate enough to own a second home often left the city behind to take up residence in what had been a vacation home or seasonal retreat. 

You could say that Covid-19 also changed the way people looked at their second homes. 

As Architectural Digest reported over the summer, “The second home has taken on a central role for homeowners who retreated to theirs during the pandemic, and many homeowners are adding upgrades more typical of a primary residence, like more storage and expanded kitchen pantries.”

Palm Beach County – including Boca Raton – is among the most sought-after markets for second homes in the country. That means a condo at Boca Bayou will not only offer you an incredible lifestyle but is likely to represent a good investment. 

“Those who didn’t own a second home before the pandemic are looking to buy one now, focusing on properties that could be used on a regular basis,” Architectural Digest says. 

With Boca Raton’s year-round attractions, a second home in Boca Bayou would definitely fit the bill!
