Affordable (and green!) transportation in and around Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Downtown Miami, and even Miami Beach has never been easier. While we’ve always had our infamous metro rail, an influx of new systems such as Freebee, Bird/Spin Scooters, and the trolley has made getting around our city easier than ever. There are a lot of pros… Read More »
So many of us returned to work this week feeling blessed to have been missed by #HurricaneDorian, but our hearts were, and continue to be, with our neighbors in The Bahamas. It’s estimated that nearly 13,000 homes have been lost, and for this small grouping of islands with a combined population of less than 100,000 people, that’s… Read More »
Hi everyone! I am sure you are keeping an eye on Hurricane Dorian. A hurricane watch is in effect for the Bahamas and we are waiting to see what the next advisory states for us in South Florida. According to the Hurricane Center it should be making landfall in Florida between Monday and Tuesday and we might… Read More »
On July 1 of this year, House Bill 447 came into effect, which modified Section 125.56 of the Florida Statutes. But what does this mean with relations to you, my current and potential future clients? Bill 447’s passing means that local governments are now able to close an open or expired permit six years after its issuance,… Read More »
It is a fact that Miami is losing a large amount of its old Spanish-influenced architecture, with most of it being replaced by a surplus of modern, “box-style” homes. One of the best (and maybe to some, worst) parts about buying a home in Coral Gables is the rather strict building code enforcement. The parties that oversee… Read More »
I wanted to get back to my analysis of the Coral Gables market and had left off after reviewing the under $1,000,000 market and the $1,000,000-$2,000,000 market. I pick up with the $2,000,000 to $4,000,000 market. The high end market always has lower numbers than the lower price ranges for obvious reasons, but the Facts and Trends… Read More »
Following up on my blog last week about the Coral Gables market, I am attaching a few different charts that show the state of the market for single family homes under $600,000, from $600,000-$800,000 and one from $800,000-$1,000,000. As you might expect, the lower price range has less supply than the more expensive homes at 6 months… Read More »
I am going to start providing weekly analysis again on the market in Coral Gables. We have a great tool called Facts and Trends, which allows us to input parameters and see the results in a number of different charts. The first market I am looking at are the Coral Gables single family homes priced between $1,000,000-$2,000,000.… Read More »
If I am looking up a house to start comparables, or just to get more information on it, my search very often starts in the Miami-Dade County tax rolls, even before I go to the MLS. Miamidade.gov is a pretty reliable reference point, offering lot square footage, house square footage, and the age of the property. Well,… Read More »
Do you know about Lakeridge? It is a townhouse community in an easy, central location and the units enjoy stunning lake views. Honestly, when you pull through the guard gate it feels like you have escaped the hustle and bustle of the city, but the community is conveniently close to Coral Gables, South Miami, the University of… Read More »
Hey readers, this is Ashley’s assistant Lillian giving you an update on my renovation! I have lost count of which week of the bathroom/closet redo we are in, but I think it has been about 7. The good news is that we passed our first inspection (plumbing) with flying colors, and we actually have wall framing going… Read More »
