October Real Estate Round-Up

A comparison of sales volume in Coral Gables and Coconut Grove from 2014 to 2015 shows that residential properties from $700,000 to $2,000,000 are moving with significantly more frequency. The number of transactions are consistently higher each month and continue to rise steadily, just last month we were up 34.1%. I expect that this momentum will continue into the fourth quarter. If you have any questions as you seek clarity on these strong trends, reach out to the Jill Penman Group to benefit from a comprehensive & private market analysis.

September Real Estate Round-Up

Miami is leading the nation in single family home sales pricing. The median price increased 10.6% in Q2 to $271,000, compared to the nationwide growth of 8.2% to $229,400. In fact, prices in Miami-Dade County have gone up for 14 consecutive quarters demonstrating continued home buyer and seller confidence in Miami real estate. Data shows that these figures have also been positively impacted by the improving local job market and historically low mortgage rates.

August Real Estate Round-Up

The signature ONE Sotheby’s International Realty Trends Report has been given a mid-year update.

July Real Estate Round-Up

Early data was released from the Miami Dade County appraiser in June which showed positive growth for our local real estate market. However, those preliminary estimates were adjusted further in July to correctly reflect an even stronger state of our community from a home value perspective. Revisions show that our countywide average is up from the 8.6% increase released last month.

June Real Estate Round-Up

According to the Miami-Dade Property Appraiser, property values have grown by 8.6% across the county in the last year. The construction industry is booming as you might tell from my listings in The Setting and Casa Roble. But no community saw more volume of high quality new construction than Key Biscayne. Key Biscayne recorded an additional half-billion dollars’ worth of real estate at the start of 2015.

May Real Estate Round-Up

If you compare any single family home in Key Biscayne toCoconut Grove you will notice you will pay a premium for the land on the island, sometimes amounting to more than double compared to what you can get in Coconut Grove. Take for instance, a small 4/3 on the Key. A classic 50’s property with about 2,300 SF will sell close to $2,000,000.

April Real Estate Round-Up

The just released 2015 ONE Trends Report anticipates that the Pinecrest submarket will outperform in 2015 as a huge wave of tear-downs from the 60’s/70s renew the age of the housing stock. Data shows that Pinecrest is experiencing a major transformation as a luxury market with large dimension and range in pricing.
