The Markers Grove Isle

Rendering from The Markers brochure
I love showing property on Grove Isle. If you are unfamiliar with the development, it is a private island in Biscayne Bay that currently houses three condo buildings, a hotel, spa, restaurant, marina, and tennis facilities. When you cross the bridge over to the island it truly feels like you have escaped to a beautiful resort!

Grove Isle is actually growing with the addition of its newest building called The Markers. This development will feature 65 residences all with deep balconies, floor to ceiling glass, designer finishes – the works! Designed by CallisonRTKL to wrap around the tip of the island, each unit will also have stunning views, which are getting harder and harder to find in Miami. Ranging from 2,200 to 5,000 square feet, these new units start at $2,200,000.

Recently someone mentioned in passing that The Markers project was being cancelled, but she did not know why that was the case. I went straight to the source and called their sales office to see what is going on. They told me that the project is still alive, but it is delayed because the city has not yet issued their building permit.

I would love to see The Markers come to fruition because I think that it looks like a beautiful project that will really modernize Grove Isle. Also because I would love to sell some units!

Miami Real Estate Insight

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of attending a market outlook meeting put on by EWM called Insight. The panelists were Alice N. Bravo P.E., the Director of Transportation & Public Works, Miami-Dade County, Dr. J. Antonio Vallamil, Founder & Principal, Washington Economics Group and Ron Shuffield, President & CEO, EWM Realty International.

It was interesting and enlightening. The real estate take away from Ron was that, as realtors, we should be pushing to reduce asking prices. Currently our $1,000,000 + single family home market is carrying a 26 month supply and there has been an 11% decrease in sales. I have said this many times, but below 12 month’s inventory represents a seller’s market, 12-18 month’s supply is a balanced market and over 18 month’s supply is a buyer’s market. In spite of these numbers, I will say, we have experienced a lot of activity in the past few months. Priced well, good houses are selling. The foreign buyers, or lack thereof, really hit us last year. 2 years ago 32% of every buyer was from outside of the country, last year 25% were foreigners. The most dramatic example of this are the Argentinians who would be spending 24% more with their currency value compared to our dollar today versus a year ago.

The good news is the value of luxury we afford in Miami compared to other important cities in the world. A 120 sq meter (1,291 sq ft) condo in Monte Carlo, for example, is a staggering $45,000/sq meter ($4,349/sf), while Miami Beach is $8,180/sq meter ($760/sf). New York is $22,482/sq meter ($2,089/sf) and Downtown Miami is $5,113/sq meter ($475/sf). It makes Miami look like a deal, right?!

I am cautiously positive about 2017, as we have gotten off to a great start! Much different than last year!

Downtown Miami / Brickell: Three Fabulous Condo Listings

If you have been renting an apartment in Downtown Miami, now might just be the time to buy. Interest rates are at historic lows, so this is a prime opportunity to purchase a condo and start building equity in your home, rather than simply shelling out rental payments each and every month! Plus, I have three beautiful new listings Downtown, all of which are extremely competitively priced!

Mint Unit 5207 is penthouse living at its best. This spectacular 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom 2-story unit has views of the Miami River and Downtown that will leave you speechless! It has sleek, clean lines, kitchen with stainless steel appliances and breakfast bar, and gorgeous open living spaces. Upon climbing the floating staircase with glass banister, you will find the spacious master suite with elegant bathroom, as well as the two other bedrooms with their own bathrooms. Mint is a full-service condominium building, offering valet, gym, pool/spa, and great proximity to all that Downtown Miami has to offer! For more info on this listing go to: 92sw3st.com

My other new Downtown listings are both in the Vue at Brickell Condos, which is located near Mary Brickell Village and the Brickell corridor – a great place to call home! Like Mint, Vue is an upscale building with all of the requisite services: concierge, pool, gym, valet, and so much more!

Vue Unit 3402 includes 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and wide open living areas with views from every room. This corner unit has a wide balcony with Bay and city views that are stunning both day and night. The kitchen, with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, is open to the living/dining areas so that the cook is always in on the action! The master suite has an enormous walk-in closet, and the guest bedroom is spacious. This listing also includes a true laundry room and 2 parking spaces. For photos and specs on this fab condo go to: vuebrickell3402.com

Vue Unit 2314 is also a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom corner unit that features a wrap-around balcony affording vistas of Downtown Miami’s twinkling lights. The foyer entry leads to the living/dining room and beautiful kitchen, while the split floorplan offers both bedrooms a sense of privacy. With wood and marble floors, cool, modern lighting, and a washer/dryer in the unit, this is the perfect home in the sky! Like the other unit at the Vue, #2314 comes with its own 2 parking spaces, which is so rare for a Downtown condo. See the photos and floor plan here: vuebrickell2314.com

If you have been leasing an apartment, it is high time to consider purchasing, and these fabulous units are a wonderful opportunity at a variety of price points. Give me a call today, I would love to show them to you!
