Absorption Rate In Coral Gables: Closed vs. Pending Sales

May 14th, 2013 Written By Riley Smith

Absorption rate is the rate at which homes are selling in a particular area.  A balanced market’s absorption rate is typically between 5 – 7 months.  The current absorption rate of closed sales in Coral Gables is 4.6 months.  This means that if market conditions do not change and if no new listings come on the market it will take 4.6 months for the current inventory to sell at the current pace of the market.    

The chart above shows the absorption rate in Coral Gables when you calculate it based on pending sales.  You can see that it goes all the way down to 3.4 months, the lowest we have seen in over 5 years.   This means that the number of active listings is falling while the number of pending sales is rising.   We are going deeper and deeper into a seller’s market.

Real estate in Coral Gables is changing rapidly.  If you would like to work with realtors who know the market and track the numbers please contact us at 305-342-1623 or send us a message here.

The home located at 1100 Alhambra Circle listed by Slesnick and Jochem was on the market just 1 day before going under contract.  The home was listed for $696,000 and sold for $769,000.  Although it needed updating, the home offered 4,000 square feet of living space on a 10,275 square foot lot.   With so little on the market, buyers right now recognize a good opportunity when they see one.  This home has potential to be a $1,000,000 home after renovations.

Demand Dwindles For Luxury Condos In Coral Gables

May 9th, 2013 Written By Riley Smith

Gables Club, Coconut Grove

As I reported earlier this year, the luxury condo market in Coral Gables is struggling.  Although there is plenty of inventory in this segment of the market, there has only been 1 closed condo sale over $1,000,000 in 2013.  

With all of the high-end condos that have gone up on Brickell (and the rest of  Miami), it makes you wonder whether buyers are being lured away from Coral Gables to the newer buildings that have all the bells and whistles.  

What’s the difference between the two markets?  A $1,500,000 unit in The Gables Club (Coral Gables’ premiere luxury condo building) buys you 3 bedrooms, 3 baths with 2,950 square feet of living space and water views.  Whereas a $1,500,000 condo in The Jade or Icon Brickell buys you just 1,900 square feet of living space with water views.  

Although Gables condos offer larger square footage for the price, the newer condos on Brickell tend to offer more amenities that some buyers may be drawn to.

Distribution Of Coral Gables Homes For Sale

April 24th, 2013 Written By Riley Smith

Check out the below chart which shows the price distribution of homes for sale in Coral Gables.  As you can see, inventory is the highest for homes priced between $500,000 and $1,000,000 as well as those priced over $2,000,000.   However, if you are looking for a home under $500,000 it is more likely that you will be competing against other buyers due to the lack of properties for sale in this segment.
