Pending Sale In Ponce Davis | 8345 Ponce de Leon Road | Asking Price:$2,900,000 There have been no closed sales in the Ponce Davis area so far in 2010 and there is currently only 1 pending sale. The slow activity is likely due to the fact that the price point in the Ponce Davis area is so high a...
The best thing about Pine Manor is that it is located in a quiet residential community, yet is just steps from all of the restaraunts and shops in downtown South Miami.  There are 4 different models offerred in this gated and walled community.  Named after the Dutch Caribbean Islands, the townho...
I think many people were surprised after yesterday’s post to learn that Coconut Grove home values dropped 15% in 2009.  I did a quick analysis of the Coral Gables market for 2009 and thought some of you might be interested to see how we compared to the City Beautiful.  It wasn’t just Coconut Gro...

I am cleaning out a few files and I came across some of the pre-construction packets for a few buildings here in the Grove.  It is amazing to see that some people who purchased new construction in Coconut Grove during the boom did not suffer a loss.  Take the Grovenor House for instance.  Unit #...
Back during the boom there was a "For Sale By Owner" sign on every block in Coconut Grove.  These days, it is very rare to find a true FSBO and for the most part FSBO's  have been taken over by the discount broker (the broker that charges a small fee to place your home on the MLS but otherwise g...
