Coconut Grove Real Estate … Now You See It … Now You Don’t

Why some properties languor on the market for months, and others are under contract literally within days of being listed is a mystery to many. 

4161 Raynolds balcony 

There are so many variables.  In part, it boils down to  location and perceived value.   The calibre of  home,  accuracy of  pricing, marketing finesse, curb appeal, availability to access and show the home, and expertise of the listing agent  … all of that factors in.  

 4161 Raynolds family room

There have been dozens of properties in the Gables and in Coconut Grove listed,  over the span of the past couple of weeks.   My top pick:  4161 Raynolds Avenue in Coconut Grove.   This house  was  just “one of  those homes” … (the kind you know, without any shadow of a doubt whatsoever,  will  get scooped up in a heartbeat).   It was …   It was scooped up within days!

Listed by my colleague at EWM,  J0-Ann Forster (who made this house available … repeatedly… until it was under contract within what seemed like minutes!)  this two-story,  4/3 in  South Grove

4161 Raynolds kitchenwas a fabulous listing to begin with!   With a private  gated courtyard entry …   terraces and balconies … a two-story wall of windows in the family room, and a fabulously redone kitchen…  this house had charm, warmth, and intrigue … all rolled into one. 

And truly, apart from the house itself (which was upgraded and  absolutely delightful) and apart from the fact that it could double as both a fabulous retreat AND simultaneously an amazing home to  entertainment in …  it had a  peaceful serenity to it from the moment you opened the gates … and a walkability factor that made it appealing….  the ‘village’ (heart of Coconut Grove … with outdoor cafes, bike paths, shops) within about a mile of the house … via shaded meandering streets and backroads where neighbors with dogs, strollers, bikes smiled and waived to passers by.

The house was listed at $795,000  … all 2512 square feet of it .   Congrats to those fortunate buyers!   Beautiful … beautiful home!    SO very, very, very Miami !!!
