Coral Gables and Coconut Grove Luxury Condo Market Report - Q2 2021
Real Estate News Coral Gables and Coconut Grove Luxury Condo Market Report - Q2 2021
View the most up-to-date market reports. Take me there now! Carrying over momentum from Q1 2021, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove again reported record-high sales with record-low inventory in our Blackbook Properties Luxury Condo Real Estate Market Report for Q2 2021. As with all of the Miami market in general, sales, prices and demand is being driven by heightened buyer interest from domestic as well as foreign buyers, relaxed travel policies, and the recent establishment of Miami as a major tech and VC hub. These factors continue to fuel record numbers into the second quarter, which is historically known to be the best-performing quarter of the year. In addition to prices increasing in response to this surge in demand, inventory has substantially dropped, transitioning Miami and this sub-market from its long-standing buyer-friendly position into a seller's market. In fact, the dynamic market of Coral Gables & Coconut Grove was one of the first Miami neighborhoods to post signs...
