Deering Bay is in Hot Demand … Second Closed Sale in 2 Months

FullSizeRenderBuyers have been hovering (for quite some time now) in Deering Bay (mulling over the plethora of options available for purchase).  There are currently 23 listed for sale, and no two units are the same.

Deering Bay  … This is an impeccably manicured & well-maintained  golf, tennis and yacht club/resort in Coral Gables … with a guard gate, security & clubhouse.

No two condo buildings are the same…  nor are any of the individual units identical to one another.  So matching the right buyer with a ready seller boils down to selecting, exploring and showing the top listings.FullSizeRender (1)

This upscale, gated community in Miami has seen  a significant upswing in recent sales as well as an increase in new listings.  Deering Bay is in hot demand!   Baby boomers downsizing …  Homeowners wanting to travel more and worry less about the upkeep and maintenance of their sprawling Pinecrest homes … Golfers … Yachting enthusiasts … And those wanting a vacation resort atmosphere …

We just closed on another gorgeous unit in Deering (after showing a dozen or more condos over a period of two months):  13641 Deering Bay Drive – Unit 138.  It sold for $1,164,000…. exquisitely updated and move in ready … 3 bedrooms.   This is our second sale in Deering Bay in the past 2 months.  Congratulations to our buyer, who got a spectacular condo!

FullSizeRender (2)If you are considering Deering Bay  …  either to live there or  perhaps to relocate elsewhere … we can help.  The Restivo Hechtman Team at EWM Realty International.  Call us!   Vicki (305) 793-1365  &  Alexandra (305) 632-0164  [email protected]

Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff Sells His Own Home 40% below Zillow’s Zestimate

For all those who hold  Zillow’s  “zestimate” on a pedestal,  repudiating it to be the benchmark of home values …  this may be rather eye-opening:

Zillow’s CEO, Spencer Rascoff  sold his own Seattle home for 40% below what Zillow’s “Zestimate” showed it to be worth just a day before closing.

As realtors, we have conversations all the time with buyers & sellers who want to grasp tightly to whatever Zillow says.    And, it’s not simply that Zillow values are high … because often they aren’t.  Sometimes Zillow comes in way below market value on any given property.  Zillow admits to inaccuracies …. But the point is,  Zillow is often inaccurate … off by a little … off  by a lot …  or just simply wrong.  And the reason is fairly simple …. There is quite a lot that goes into valuing a property.   And luxury property is where Zillow most often gets it wrong, due in part to the fact that there are so many intangible factors.

Spencer Rascoff, selling his own home for 40% below what his company’s zestimate said the value was, speaks volumes.  His own company valued his house at $1,750,000.  He sold it for $1,050,000. That is a huge discrepancy.

Yes … appraisers can get it wrong …  so can Realtors …  BUT we have tools that help us be as accurate as humanly possible … and we have tons of  information at our fingertips that influences & impacts  home valuations …  information that is not based simply on auto-populated algorithms!

Buying … Selling … Please call us …  We would love to work with you!    The Restivo Hechtman Team at EWM Realtors International
