The Gifford Lane Art Stroll is unique among all art shows in Florida. Not only is it the world’s smallest arts festival but each year for the past 16 years they have donated all their proceeds to local Coconut Grove Charities, giving away approximately $40,000. Two charities they have supported are the St. Stephen’s AIDS Ministry and the St. Alban’s Child Enrichment Center in the Grove Village West.

A percentage of each art piece sold along with all proceeds from sales of Gifford Lanes world-famous cucumber punch and other delicious treats such as ribs, grilled shrimp, hot dogs, arepas, and broiled burgers all goes to the charity.

Coconut GroveThis Coconut Grove Art event will feature works from some seventy artists. Their works will be displayed on fences, in front of yards, on clotheslines, in trees and on ladders all along the sleepy lane of Gifford.

This event is described by residents as the “Grove the way Coconut Grove once was.”

There will be live performances by the high energy folk and rock tunesmiths “Solar Dogs” and Coconut Grove’s music legend Bobby Ingram.

There will also be a bounce house and jugglers for child entertainment.

So come on by and know that with every purchase you make will go to a good cause…

A Strong Miami Real Estate Market

Posted by on Feb 26, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

Miami

Miami’s real estate remains strong as it ranks second in fastest growing home prices in the US according to S&P Case-Shiller for 2014. Its growth has been rising 8.4 percent over the past 12 months.

In a report by David M. Blitzer, managing director and chairman of the index committee at S&P, he states that “Movements in home prices show clear regional patterns. The western half of the nation plus Miami and Atlanta enjoyed year-over-year increases of 5 percent or more. San Francisco and Miami were the strongest.”

MiamiWith that being said, Miami has seen a 6.5 percentage increase in home sales during January in comparison to last year. It jumped from 904 sales to 963 with an increase in the median sale price from $225,000 last January to $237,000 this year, an increase of 5.6% according to the Miami Association of Realtors. These trends show that the median home prices are surging toward pre-downturn levels.

As Floridians gain confidence once again, we are seeing a volume of single-family homes hitting the market. This rise has continued for the third consecutive year.

Condo sales, unlike the single family homes, have seen a drop. In January there was 1,080 sales compared to last year with 1,270 sales, a 15 percent difference. Nevertheless, there is a continued demand for newly constructed condominiums showing strong sales. In 2011, it was announced by developers that 207 different tower projects were coming to Miami. Out of those, 113 projects have sold 67 percent of their 16,863 units.

Good news is that single-family homes and condos continue to sell at near asking prices, but their average days on the market has increased 10.9 and 17.9 percent from last year.

Distressed property sales have also seen a declined from last year which is good news.

Another record shows that Florida continues to lead the US in investor-purchased homes with California, Georgia, Arizona and North Carolina trailing. Over the past four years, Florida has had 78,155 sales of investor-purchased homes according to a report released by Realty Trac last week.

MiamiFlorida continues to attract investors to its market with its expansive coastlines, warm weathers and attractions.

Although the all-cash sales have seen a decline to 4.6 percent in Florida, South Florida’s cash sales are up. Miami ranked the highest all-cash sales in the metro area for the fourth quarter in 2014 with 58.1 percent. Sarasota, Cape Coral/Fort Myers and Tampa followed. Despite the overall decrease in all-cash sales, 90 percent of foreign buyers continue to pay cash.

According to Christopher Zoller, the 2015 Residential President of the Miami Association of Realtors, states that “Miami is seeing a consistent and steady increase in single-family home sales while condo buyers are trending to the new coastal units becoming available. More houses are coming on the market, which means sellers are feeling confident about the housing market and strong sales show that buyers are also feeling confident.”
