The “January Wave” for Miami Real Estate Listings…

Miami real estate

I love the start of a new year – energy is high, spirits are bright, and people start thinking about selling their homes again! If you’ve been looking to buy and are getting frustrated because of the lack of inventory, don’t give up hope. January is a great month for new listings. Typically we see a reduction in the number of houses hitting the market in November/December as people hunker down for the holidays. For example, in November/December of 2012, only 159 homes and condos were listed in Coral Gables. But then in January 2013, there were 141 new listings. We saw a similar slow down at the end of 2013, and so far there have already been 32 new condos & homes in Coral Gables listed since January 1st. Interested in joining this Miami real estate activity wave? I’d love to talk to you about buying or selling!

To List Or Not To List?

Christmas listing

I get this question from people all the time: The holidays are coming up and with everything that’s going on, should I wait until after the New Year to list my house? My thoughts are as follows: Inventory is so low right now, it is actually a perfect time to list your house for sale. In January, many new listings will come on the market so you will have more competition. Right now our inventory is down and there is a lot of demand.  Listing now gives you exposure without extra competition. In addition to that, I believe we will still have a lot of activity in the coming months. The quantity of showings might not be as high as the rest of the year, but the quality is good. People who are looking around the holidays are serious buyers. So I believe there’s no better time than the present!

Spectacular South Grove home – 4243 Lennox Drive

4243 Lennox

4243 Lennox

I recently listed what I consider to be one of the coolest homes in Coconut Grove.  Located on Lennox Drive, one of the more unique streets in the Grove, this home is located on the center “island” giving it a very special feeling right off the bat. The property’s unique shape exudes a tropical air – it’s surrounded by lush landscaping and has an island-feel from the moment you enter. Adirondack chairs welcome you on the front porch! I love listings like this. They are such a fun sell!

Living Room

Living Room

This particular house has been completely updated from head to toe.  New roof, new impact windows & doors, new landscaping, new master bathroom, new kitchen – there’s nothing to do!  With wood panels in the bedrooms and special moldings throughout as well as all of the other special touches it offers, this house has so much charm. 

Pool, Patio, Beach & Gazebo

Pool, Patio, Beach & Gazebo

The backyard and patio are also especially inviting. The large covered patio complete with overhead fans overlooks the huge heated pool. Beyond the pool is a sand beach area perfect for a family volleyball game. And beyond the “beach” is a quaint gazebo/chickee hut with couches for enjoying the afternoon breeze!

This listing is currently offered at $965,000. For further details, visit www.4243Lennox.com!
