Categorized under Coral Gables Condos, Coral Gables Townhouses

After years without any large scale development in Coral Gables, there are now multiple residential projects in the pipeline. Two that I am very excited about are Biltmore Parc and Beatrice Row. Below are the details and information on each of these unique projects.

Biltmore Parc, Coral Gables

Biltmore Parc has a great location just steps from downtown Coral Gables. The boutique building consists of 32 residences (2/2; 2/2.5 +den; 3/3.5 +den), with large expansive terraces featuring Nanawall folding glass, European style kitchens with German appliances, walk in laundry room in every unit, over-sized spa inspired bathrooms with separate shower and tub and walk in closets. The building will be 5 stories high, and reflect the historic architecture of Coral Gables with a modern twist. Residents will benefit from 24/7 concierge service and a one year membership to The Club at the Biltmore.

Beatrice Row, Coral Gables

Beatrice Row

Beatrice Row is located on an entire block in the Biltmore area of Coral Gables. It will be 9 townhouses that are 3 levels each. The townhouses were inspired by the elegant and fashionable townhomes of London, New York and Boston. MG Developer Miami is working with the internationally recognized architectural firm de la Guardia Victoria Architects and Urbanists (DLGV Architects) based in Coral Gables. DLGV Architects’ design of luxury residential projects in Florida and The Bahamas have been featured in Architectural Digest, Home & Design, Period Home, Metropolitan Home, Coastal Living, Veranda and Southern Living.

Although we are experiencing a slowdown in certain segments of the Coral Gables real estate market, the overall figures remain fairly steady compared to the same time period last year. Check out the charts below which show a comparison between 2015 and 2016.

There is one segment that has certainly seen a slowdown in the number of sales this year. That is the $2,000,000 – $3,000,000 price point. You can see from the chart below that sales have slowed by nearly 50% in that price range compared to the same time period in 2015.

Coral Gables Waterfront Homes Market Update | Sales Down, Values Stable

April 15th, 2016 Written By

Coral Gables Waterfront Homes

During the first quarter of 2016 there were 12 waterfront homes sold in Coral Gables. These sold for an average of $4,600,000. The numbers this year are down slightly from the first quarter of 2015 where there were 20 waterfront closed sales in Coral Gables which averaged $5,100,000. The good news is that values seem to be holding for waterfront property. In 2016 the average price per square foot has come in at $738.00 where during the same time period in 2015 it was $721.00/square foot.

I believe this data is similar to what we are seeing across the rest of the luxury market in Coral Gables. There are fewer ultra-luxury sales thanks to the strong dollar and less buyers in the market. However these conditions have not yet had a negative impact on values.

7550 SW 43rd Avenue, Little Gables

Congratulations to our sellers of 1503 SW 43rd Avenue who just closed on their house in the Little Gables.  As soon as we put this listing on the MLS the phone was ringing off the hook with potential buyers and we had a multiple offer situation just a few days later. The home closed last week for $690,000, which was $15,000 over asking price.

What factors made this such a sought-after listing? First of all, it was priced perfectly at $675,000 which generated a lot of interest from potential buyers. Second, it was in excellent condition and turn-key ready. Third, the price point (below $1,000,000) is one of the most active segments of the Coral Gables real estate market.

Details of 1503 SW 43rd Avenue:

  • 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths
  • 2,662 Square Feet of Living Area
  • 5,350 Square Foot Lot

Can He Sell It Now? Alan Potamkin Splits Property And Drops Price

March 10th, 2016 Written By

1 Casuarina Concourse, Coral Gables

Back in May of 2015, auto-tycoon Alan Potamkin’s spectacular Gables Estates residence at 1 Casuarina Concourse hit the market. Listed by The Jills of Coldwell Banker, the home featured 20,862 square feet of living space, 9 bedrooms, 10.5 baths, pool, gym, tennis court, 1,500 wine cellar, a professional chef’s kitchen and 937′ of water frontage.

After nearly 1 year on the market, Potamkin has now divided the 3.6 acre lot that his current home is situated on and reduced the price from $67,800,000 to $49,000,000 in a further attempt to get the property sold (according to The Miami Herald).  By separating the lots, he believes that he will open up options for potential buyers. The two properties are now listed separately, however, Potamkin has said that he wants to sell the property with the house first before he sells the empty lot.

The highest recorded sale price for a home in Coral Gables occurred in 2012 for $25,000,000 (41 Arvida Parkway in Gables Estates).

Categorized under Coral Gables Real Estate, The Platinum Triangle

San Servando

There are only 5 homes currently for sale in the sought after neighborhood of The Platinum Triangle. Homes in this area tend to get snapped up quickly due their proximity to the neighboring communities of South Miami and Coconut Grove.

The active listings in The Platinum Triangle range in price from $997,000 to $3,950,000. Sales in this area have ranged over the past 12 months between $670,000 and $2,575,000.

We Have The Most Sought After Listing In Coral Gables

February 22nd, 2016 Written By


Categorized under Coral Gables Real Estate

Menendez, Coral Gables

Our team currently has the hottest listing in Coral Gables……but it’s probably not what you would expect. Last month we listed an investment property located at 517 Menendez Avenue for $699,000. Situated on a quiet Gables street, this duplex offered 3 bedrooms, 2 baths upstairs and 3 bedrooms, 2 baths downstairs with tile floors and a washer and dryer in each unit. There are tenants in both the top and bottom of the duplex who are interested in renewing their leases in May.

Since listing over 3 weeks ago, we received at least 3 showing requests per day and nearly 10 offers on the property. Considering that this is neither a foreclosure or a short sale, that is a lot of interest. Just goes to show how many investors there are out there who are looking for this type of property. I am happy to report that we went under contract yesterday! Congratulations to all parties involved!
