About Hobe Sound, Florida
Hobe Sound is located along the Atlantic coast of South Florida. Our community is home to spectacular nature spots, unspoiled parks and championship golf courses. With a population of less than 15,000, residents enjoy a convenient, quiet setting and unhurried lifestyle. And, as recently reported by RealtyTrac, Hobe Sound topped the list of America's best beach towns.
"Buying near the beach is one of the best ways to ensure a property will appreciate in value," said Daren Blomquist, vice president at RealtyTrac. View RealtyTrac's video below, "Best Beach Town Bargains."
"Whether buying for retirement, a vacation home or a primary residence, homes located in quality towns benefit from virtually unlimited demand and a finite supply of land to build on."
Four of the 20 beach town housing markets were in Florida, led by Hobe Sound, located on the "Treasure Coast" in Martin County, about halfway between West Palm Beach and Port St. Lucie. Hobe Sound has an average temperature of 76 degrees, 64 percent sunny days with good air quality and a crime grade of A+. The town ranked No. 1 on the list, thanks to its low median estimated market value of homes and condos: $191,189.
