I Salute Coral Gables, the City Beautiful

As many of you know, this year marks Coral Gables’ 90th anniversary. On April 29, 1925, its original charter was approved by the Florida legislature, and thanks in no small part to the extraordinary vision of founder George Merrick, today the City Beautiful is a vibrant, historically rich, multicultural destination, home to more than 49,000 residents. Due to my involvement with the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce and the fact that my office is located in Coral Gables, this city is like a second home to me. It is a true gem: ideally located close to Miami International Airport and Downtown Miami; comprised of neighborhoods that skew urban and also neighborhoods that appeal to those searching for a more suburban […]

Coral Gables Market Update June 2014

 The Coral Gables single family home real estate market has certainly remained very active. Last month was a great month for sellers. In the month of May, there were 272 homes for sale. This is the lowest number of homes for sale this year. 67 homes went under contract, and that is the highest number of homes going under contract this year. That would already be impressive, but what really shows the market is the number of homes that sold. 56 homes sold last month, which is the highest number of homes sold in any month this year. This is a huge jump from the 27 homes that sold in January. Interested in selling? Now is the time! Contact me […]

Coral Gables Market Update

The month of June was an interesting one for the Coral Gables real estate market. After a dip in the average price per square foot in May after a steady increase since the beginning of the year, the average price per square foot for closed sales jumped to $416. This is an all time high for 2013, an increase of 41% since January. It is a great time to sell! If you aren’t happy with your real estate results, if it’s not the market, it might be your method.

Palmetto Bay Market Update

I have quite a few well-qualified buyers interested in purchasing homes in the Village of Palmetto Bay. The problem we have: a lack of inventory, (meaning active listings). In February of this year, we saw the lowest number of single family homes for sale than in any month over the last year. There were only 77 homes for sale in the Village of Palmetto Bay last month, compared to 111 homes for sale in February of 2012. With 40 homes going under contract last month, it is a great time to sell! Contact me for a complimentary analysis of your home, or to schedule an appointment to discuss purchasing one.
