Fall Market Update by EWM President Ron Shuffield

Our Real Estate market has had a slight increase in inventory (a much needed increase IMHO).

Three of my buyers who were having trouble getting under contract have finally been able to buy and my sellers who sold this summer are glad they did!

I expect a little bit of a slowdown over December/January and a kickstart to 2014 beginning in Feb/March.

Inventory in the high end condo market will increase as 150 new projects are planned in south Florida with about 23,000 condos coming up for sale.

Coconut Grove Bayfront Renovation Approved by Voters

Approved Coconut Grove Waterfront Master Plan
Approved Coconut Grove Waterfront Master Plan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a Coconut Grove resident, I find this news to be exciting for the community.  Although naysayers believe that it will turn the Grove in to a commercial Bayside-like atmosphere with too much traffic, I think the redevelopment of the 7 acre bay front area will highlight Coconut Grove’s aviation history with the restoration of the two Pan Am airplane hangars, will modernize it with a new and chic shopping/dining area, will provide alternative parking options, will attract more residents and visitors to the parks/green areas (also set to be revitalized), and I believe it will also enhance the character of the older, more bohemian Grove.  People will come out to shop in the new district and with only a few restaurant options in the bayfront area, they will walk to Cocowalk or try the restaurants along & off of Main Highway such as Lulu’s, Greenstreets, The Sandbar, Le Bouchon, Calamari, Jaguar, the list goes on.  This investment in the Coconut Grove waterfront will boost interest in the area and boost local shops and restaurants.  CLICK HERE to read more about the plan to renovate the Coconut Grove Bay Front area.With everything that is happening in Miami – the upper east side/Edgewater area exploding, the new Frost Science Museum along with the Perez Art Museum in our downtown area, the plans for the total overhaul of the Miami Beach convention center – Miami is undergoing a renaissance and personally, I think it’s about time Coconut Grove went from a diamond in the rough to a polished valuable gem while preserving it’s historic and bohemian roots.  If you are thinking of buying a condo in Coconut Grove or any surrounding areas, click here to read more about condo financing in Miami, FL.  You don’t have to memorize all these ins and outs of financing, I have an amazing banker who will help you navigate the world of financing.

Common mistakes when buying a condo

Common mistakes buyers make when buying a condo:

– not asking “condo questionnaire” questions before making an offer (buildings must meet lending criteria unless you are putting more than 25% down and it’s better to find out quickly whether you will be able to get a loan in the building or not)

– not reading your condominium documents during your 3 day condo doc review period (the building may have restrictions on leasing and you may be thinking you are going to rent the unit out or the building may have chosen to waive reserves and you may not be ok with that)

– waiting until right before closing to apply to the condo association (it can take two to three weeks to be approved and if there is a back up offer on the condo you are buying and you cannot close on time because you didn’t apply to the association, you may lose the unit)

– not including a condominium association rider as part of your contract (this is an extra “safety net” if there is any problem with the building and it specifies which parking space(s) are included)

– asking whether parking is deeded or assigned. If assigned, your parking space can be changed. Not the end of the world, but good to know…

– not requesting (in writing) the budget and most recent year end financials… The condo association rider states they must be requested in writing.

Miami River Walk and Real Estate

By the end of 2012, 5.25 miles of the Miami River walk will be completed. Or, at least, that is the plan. The plans call for a total of 10 miles of walking paths, benches and landscaped green belts along both sides of the Miami River. Currently, there is a gallery walk along the river hosted by Nina Torres Fine Art.

The Miami River walk is planned to be linked to the Brickell Trolley (free) and the Miami River water taxi (possibly).

As a Realtor, I find the development of the Miami River area exciting. I see enormous public interest in developments along the river such as Wind, Mint, the Ivy, Neo Vertika, Latitude, Brickell on the River, Icon etc. and it makes me envision a vibrant downtown with internationally influenced architecture, culture and year round warm temperatures.

One bedroom condos in this area are available starting in the upper 100s whereas in 2008 the prices for a one bedroom were in the low 100s.
