Selling Miami Luxury Real Estate

148 Isla Dorada Back We  sold a number of luxury properties  in Miami recently …  at,  or near,  asking price.  Each of those properties was compelling for one simple reason:  Each was well-priced to begin with. 

We  negotiated several recent purchases of  luxury homes and condos  in Miami at a fraction of the asking price … on properties where there was a notable gap between asking price and likely appraisal value.

If you would like to buy or sell property in or around Miami, we will be delighted to assist you in getting the best terms and price possibleGive us a call today to find out how we can help.148 Isla Dorada

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.

Grovenor House: 2627 S. Bayshore Drive in Coconut Grove

 

Ugo Colombo’s 32 story highrise  luxury condo in Coconut Grove continues to attract buyers… three years post-opening…. and three years after selling out $5 million  in condos within literally the first 45 minutes!  Grovenor House Pool

 Grovenor House, built in 2006,  is Colombo’s sole waterfront condo in Coconut Grove…  his other high end highrises primarily concentrated along Brickell Avenue and on Miami Beach.

Grovenor House front

 

List prices today in the MLS  for Grovenor House condos run  $669,000 – $16,900,000 ($419-$1,855 / square foot). 

Grovenor House Marina View

That puts the average list price at $2,506,875  for 2,761 square feet of air space overlooking Coconut Grove’s Biscayne Bay…. in other words $739 per square foot – asking price.Grovenor House View

  Despite the Miami condo glut, and recent foreclosures hitting the high-end real estate market hard, Grovenor House and other waterfront luxury property is holding it’s value. The overall lack of buildable waterfront property adds a premium to existing ‘waterfront’… in Miami as elsewhere.
