Today’s Real Estate Outlook

Today’s Real Estate Outlook The Wellington Area Remains A Thriving And Dynamic Real Estate Market


Wellington is a thriving and dynamic real estate market that has experienced significant growth in recent years. As a premier equestrian destination and a sought-after community for families, Wellington has become a prime location for real estate investment and development. In this article, we will explore how the real estate market looks here in Wellington and delve into the factors that are driving its current trends.

One of the key factors that contributes to Wellington’s robust real estate market is its desirable location. Wellington is known for its top-rated schools, beautiful parks and extensive equestrian facilities, making it an attractive choice for those seeking a family-friendly community.

The community’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and the famous Palm Beaches also adds to its allure, making it a popular destination for those seeking an upscale lifestyle. This has led to increased demand for homes in Wellington, resulting in a strong seller’s market.

In terms of housing inventory, Wellington has a diverse range of properties to offer. From single-family homes to townhouses and condos, there is something for everyone in Wellington’s real estate market. Many of the homes in Wellington are situated in gated communities with amenities such as golf courses, clubhouses and equestrian facilities, catering to a wide range of lifestyle preferences. There are also a number of new construction developments, providing buyers with modern and updated homes that cater to contemporary living. However, due to the high demand, the housing inventory in Wellington can sometimes be limited, leading to increased competition among buyers.

Wellington’s real estate market has also experienced a steady increase in property values. Over the past few years, Wellington has seen a positive trend in home prices, with the median home value well surpassing the national average. This appreciation in home values has made Wellington a lucrative market for real estate investors looking for long-term appreciation potential. Additionally, the community’s strong rental market, driven by its equestrian industry and seasonal visitors, has made it an attractive option for investors looking for rental income properties.

Another factor that has contributed to the positive outlook of Wellington’s real estate market is the area’s strong economic growth. Wellington has a diverse and vibrant economy, with a strong focus on the equestrian industry, healthcare, education and professional services. The community is home to the renowned Winter Equestrian Festival, one of the largest equestrian events in the world, which attracts riders, trainers and enthusiasts from all over the globe. This has not only boosted Wellington’s economy but has also contributed to the growth of the real estate market, as many equestrian professionals and enthusiasts seek to purchase properties in Wellington to be closer to the equestrian events and facilities.

Despite the positive trends, it’s worth mentioning that the real estate market in Wellington is not without its challenges. One of the main challenges is the lack of affordable housing options. The median home price in Wellington is higher than the national average, which can make it challenging for first-time home buyers or those with lower budgets to enter the market. Additionally, the competition among buyers can be fierce, with multiple offers on desirable properties being common, which can drive up prices.

In conclusion, the real estate market in Wellington is currently experiencing a strong seller’s market due to its desirable location, diverse housing inventory, strong property value appreciation and robust local economy. However, challenges such as limited affordable housing options and increased competition among buyers do exist.

If you are considering buying or investing in real estate in Wellington, it’s important to work with a qualified local real estate agent who can provide you with expert guidance and help you navigate the market’s nuances. With its unique combination of lifestyle offerings and economic opportunities, Wellington continues to be a well-sought-after market.

Decades Of Experience

Decades Of Experience Realtor Steven Prince Brings His Unique Expertise To Clients Looking To Buy Or Sell A Home

By Mike May

If you are looking for a real estate agent with experience and unmatched know-how, Steven Prince of the Tolliver Prince Realty Group is a great choice to be your professional companion throughout the real estate transaction process.

Prince, a longtime resident of Wellington who grew up and attended middle school and high school in the community, understands Wellington’s real estate scene very well. He has 26 years of experience in the local real estate industry — six years as a real estate appraiser and 20 years as a real estate agent. Since 2012, he has been a managing partner with Tolliver Prince Realty, where his specialty is in mortgage lending.

The key to Prince’s success in the real estate industry is his intimate knowledge of all aspects of the buying and selling of property. His skill set is rather unique.

“I originally became licensed as a mortgage lender 26 years ago,” Prince said. “At that time, I was hired by World Savings, and they trained me to become a real estate appraiser. I worked for the bank for three years before leaving and becoming a full-time mortgage broker. In 2002, I realized that I worked hard at obtaining a mortgage license and an appraisal license, so I figured getting my real estate license would just add more credibility. So, that is exactly what I did.”

At Tolliver Prince Realty, Prince spearheads a team of 10 real estate professionals who guide clients through any given real estate buying or selling experience. According to Prince, many real estate deals fall through the cracks, so to speak, because of a lack of understanding of all the “ins and outs” of the real estate business.

Prince, who lives in Wellington’s Sugar Pond Manor neighborhood, describes himself as a real estate troubleshooter who understands the language of banks and underwriters. Not every real estate agent can confidently make such a claim. But Prince’s background as an appraiser, in banking and in development puts him in a unique position in the real estate profession.

To truly understand and appreciate Tolliver Prince Realty’s commitment to excellent customer service, look no further than the organization’s logo.

“Our logo, which features a lion, is actually a door knocker and used by many as ‘guardian of the home,’” Prince explained. “The lion represents strength, pride and protection. It is also majestic, fierce and, of course, known as the ‘King of the Jungle.’ We wanted our clients to know that Tolliver Prince Realty will serve as a ‘guardian of their home’ throughout the real estate sale process.”

While the logo gives you an idea of the group’s commitment to high-quality customer service, it’s more important to emphasize the ability of Prince and his team to navigate pitfalls during the process of buying and selling a home.

“Hands down, our experience and backgrounds in this business are second to none,” he said. “There are very few, if any, real estate firms or individual agents who have a real estate appraisal, mortgage and development background. There are some fantastic Realtors out there, but there are so many moving parts inside a real estate transaction that stretch far beyond the Realtor’s duties, such as appraisal, title, financing, survey and inspection. Many transactions fall apart because of a lack of experience.”

At Tolliver Prince, clients are treated like they are going to board an airplane where the goal is to arrive safely at their final destination.

“We use a ‘boarding pass’ as a means of educating our buyers and sellers,” Prince explained. “Our goal is to get our clients from Point A to Point B, safely. During the flight, we may hit turbulence, but a skilled pilot knows how to navigate through the turbulence. This is exactly why technology will never take away the Realtor. Technology cannot solve the emotions of a buyer and seller when things start to go south.”

Regardless of where you live in Wellington or beyond, and what kind of real estate price point you are considering, Tolliver Prince is well-positioned to lend a helping hand. “We are well-versed in equestrian, waterfront and golf communities in Wellington,” Prince said. “The bulk of our sales are $500,000 and north, but we still work with clients with lower price points.”

One of Prince’s past clients, who had a great real estate experience with him, is Todd Fronrath, a partner with the West Palm Beach law firm of Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath.

“Steve did a great job listing and helping to sell my home in Wellington,” Fronrath said. “The deal was going along smoothly until about two days before closing. There was an issue with the buyer and the appraisal. Steve went above and beyond to meet with the other agent, the buyer and the lender to work out the details. He did an outstanding job, and I sold the home. Since then, he has helped other members of my family with their real estate needs.”
