Coral Gables Real Estate Vault

Check out the chart above which shows the number of homes for sale in Coral Gables over the past 3 years. There are currently 299 homes for sale in Coral Gables which is a figure we haven't reached since early 2012.  More and more sellers want to capitalize on the increasing home values and are placing their properties on the market. I do have some concerns that rising prices will deter buyers, particularly in the entry-level market.  Coral Gables has the...Continue Reading!

New Townhouse Hits The Market In Coral Gables

February 20th, 2014 Written By

Coral Gables Real Estate Vault

This new townhouse in Coral Gables has just come on the market listed by Jo-Ann Forster of One Sothebys.  I am sure that it will garner a significant amount of interest considering that there are very few townhouses for sale in Coral Gables.  Townhouses are very appealing to buyers because they have the benefit of being "lock-and-go" while maintaining some of the features of a single family home. This property is located at 483 Menendez Avenue (#10), just steps from the...Continue Reading!

The home located at 4706 Granada Boulevard (listed by Slesnick and Jochem) closed last week for $1,800,000 - the home was listed for $1,748,000.  There were several factors that contributed to this scenario.  First, the home sat on large 18,524 square foot waterfront lot with boat dock.  Second, it was in very good condition with a nicely updated kitchen.  And the last factor was location.  There are very few waterfront homes priced under $2,000,000 in the North Gables area. This is...Continue Reading!

Coral Gables Real Estate Vault

The French Village is an extremely sought after location. These free standing homes were designed by Coral Gables founder George Merrick.  They were built to lure northerners to Coral Gables by their unique design.  Homes in the French Village do not turn over very often so they tend to sell quickly and at a premium. Yesterday, the home at 536 Hardee Road in the French Village came on the market a list price of $2,200,000.  Listed by my colleague Carole Smith...Continue Reading!

I have been tracking the "Old Spanish Village" project located on Ponce de Leon Boulevard since 2009.  Back then plans were in the works to develop a gated community of luxury townhomes and condos.  It was a joint venture between Ralph Sanchez and Mas Group.  In December of 2010, the project fell victim to the recession and was placed on the market for sale.  In July of 2011 it was sold for $30.55 million to Agave Holdings which also built...Continue Reading!

January 28th, 2014 Written By

Coral Gables Real Estate Vault

Today I wanted to review Cocoplum's real estate market activity during in 2013.  You may remember my recent post about the waterfront homes in Cocoplum.  I explained that the waterfront properties had not bounced back from the downturn in the market as much as the non-waterfront homes in Cocoplum.   However, when you take a look at the Cocoplum market as a whole, you will see that the community has made a solid recovery in 2013.
