PRICING YOUR PROPERTY

Some say that pricing a home is the #1 factor when putting your house on the market. In my decade plus career in the South Florida real estate community, I have had consistent sales success by pricing to sell as well as making sure the property is in tip top shape. When strategizing a property’s list price with my clients, I explain that pricing to sell is an excellent way to attract multiple offers in a short amount of time. I recently employed this method with 3776 [...]

JPG Update: JUST SOLD In South Coconut Grove

I started the week off with a sale in South Coconut Grove. 3979 Frantz Road closed at $418/SF for this 1926 Old Spanish estate in the sought after Coconut Grove community. This was a complicated sale as the property was contingent upon the sale of the buyer's home which was not on the market nor under contract so we worked through this piece. Because I understand the market so intimately I knew their home would sell quickly providing much reassurance to my seller to accept such a contingency which was an essential key [...]

Has Miami’s Luxury Real Estate Market Slowed?

According to a new report explained by The Real Deal South Florida, Miami rose two notches to place 7th among the world’s top luxury property markets in 2015 (luxury is defined as any home $2Million or above). This jump from our 9th place finish in 2013 & 2014 was driven by a few significant sales in the ultra-luxury category which offset declines in overseas and all cash buyers. Despite this finding, data also shows that a downward trend is approaching. As of April 2016, home [...]
