BOCA RATON, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 -- Recent sales at 200 East in downtown Boca reflect an accelerated growth pattern in the luxury Boca Raton residential real estate market. The luxury condo project located in downtown sold nine new residences in the months of October and November with a total price tag of $7 million. Most are scheduled for closing this month. Market analysis completed by Nestler Poletto Sotheby's International Realty with numbers from the Regional Multiple List Service, indicates a 120 percent increase in the number of sales in Boca Raton as compared to the same period in 2011 for properties valued at $600,000 to $3 million.

"The summer was a steady time, but the increase since October began has been extremely dramatic," said John Poletto, principal of Nestler Poletto Sotheby's International Realty. "I believe we're going to wrap up 2012 with record sales."

According to market numbers provided by the Regional Multiple List Service, the average number of "days on the market" has dropped from 323 days to 237 days, a decrease of nearly 73 percent. At the forefront of this positive sales boom is downtown Boca Raton and buildings like 200 East.

200 East has seen an accelerated sales pace thus far in 2012, as well as an increase in the cost per square footage of units being sold as compared to last year.

200 East is now 90 percent occupied.

"We have had great sales success this season," said Lon Tabatchnick, developer of 200 East. "We are completely sold out of certain floor plans, with limited availability of others."

Tabatchnick said 200 East has become popular with young professionals who want to work, live and play in the downtown Boca area, as well as families who want a nice place for their kids to live in while attending nearby colleges.

200 East is the newest luxury condominium building in downtown Boca Raton. A half mile from the ocean and within walking distance from Mizner Park and Royal Palm Place, 200 East offers two and three bedroom residences and townhouses priced from $695,900.
