HGTV Miami: Want to Sell Soon? Then HGTV is looking for You!

 

We are looking for home-owners  who would soon like to sell…  and … would be willing to have it documented on HGTV.   If  you are willing to share your story … your journey …and would like to sell your home  through us … we would like to talk with you  about listing and selling your house … and applying to have the entire process showcased on TV.

Film Crew

 

HGTV will be filming in Miami for an upcoming  prime-time show, and the producers of HGTV asked  Miami Realtors, Alexandra and Vicki Restivo of EWM Realtors to work with them  on it.   

IF YOU ARE  considering selling your home…. and would  like to list  your house for sale soon…  and possibly have it documented and featured on HGTV …  listed and sold by The Restivo Team with Esslinger, Wooten, Maxwell Realtors…   we would like to talk with you  about applying!   We invite you to call 305-793-1365 or  305 632-0164  … or send us a note here.   You can download the link for the application here.

Filming will document one home sale in Miami…  following an individual/family through the process of selling (listing, pricing, staging, showing the house, selling…).  Homes can be of any price range, style or type. 

We are looking for sellers who are outgoing and energetic  (after all, this is for television)…  and happy to share their story (and the nitty gritty details of it) with the world.  Cameras will capture much of the trials and tribulations… and the rollercoaster ride of selling a house…  the ups and downs of prepping the house for sale, pricing, negotiating, and ultimately selling.

New on the Market: 7820 SW 51 Ave …Charming High Pines Home – OPEN TODAY!

front

Brilliant opportunity to own in High Pines,  which is one of  Miami’s most delightful neighborhoods … nestled between Coral Gables, South Miami and Pinecrest.  High Pines has  mature trees,  a nice balance of  sun and shade,  and quiet streets, making it a great place for bike riding,  jogging and mingling with your neighbors.  High Pines has a definite  “walkability” factor…  close enough to local parks, shops, stores, dining and entertainment to make it attractive to buyers.  As we say in real estate it really does all boil down to one thing: Location… Location… Location. In this case,  proximity to South Miami and it’s restaurants, outdoor cafes, shopping, entertainment and night life is something that buyers are looking for.

7820 SW 51 Ave  High Pines

One  perk, living in South Florida, is having outdoor space that you can enjoy year-round.  This lovely four bedroom, 2 bath home has  that:  It has a enclosed, fenced backyard surrounded with hedges, and a covered-patio that’s an extension of the indoor spaces, inviting you to relax and enjoy the outdoors,  whether you’re there alone or entertaining friends and family. Many surrounding homes have similarly-sized backyard spaces and pools … and this home has room to create a pool, if that’s something you want to explore at some future point. 

7820 SW 51 Ave  High Pines

Inside, the “heart” of the home is without a doubt the  kitchen …and the family room that it opens to. This home is full of light … It has a (formal) dining room that’s cozy, bright and cheery…  and a nice expanse of bay windows facing onto the front yard from the living room. Terracotta tile runs throughout all of the main living areas,  with wood flooring/parquet in each of the four bedrooms. This homes is priced to sell at $599,000 and is ready for you to move in. 7820 SW 51 Avenue   Miami, Fl 33143.

7820 SW 51 Ave  High Pines

If you are  looking to move, and are looking for good schools,   this home may well be worth looking at. The Elementary schools are Sunset, Carver and Coral Gables, the Middle school is Ponce de Leon and Coral Gables is the Senior High… and of course Miami offers a number of excellent private school options as well.

This house is easy to show. We will be showing it by appointment as well as through Open Houses. Call us at your earliest convenience if you or someone you know would like to see it. Contact The Restivo/Price Team at 305-793-1365/305-632-0164/305-798-1652.   Irma Price / Alexandra and Vicki Restivo -  EWM Realtors International

Allure of the MIAMI townhouse!

couch couple

For a variety of reasons, villas and townhouses are a plausible answer to ‘what’s next?’ Whether you want to lock-up and take-off for a well-deserved romp around the globe… or  eliminate  entirely the hassle of maintaining a large home ( and grounds!)…  a townhouse can offer  freedom, without catapulting you into  quarters of claustrophobically minimal dimensions.  If you want  independence and elbow room …  and a condo is just too confining…the answer COULD BE  a townhouse.   

In both Coral Gables & South Miami there are several in the works – some in the development stages (having already broken ground, or about to)…   others ready for occupancy.  They run the whole gamut, with some available for under $500,000.
