Riviera Drive Gets A Facelift

I drive Riviera every day on my way to and from work and love all of the renovations that have been going on on that street between Hardee and U.S.1.  Whether on a waterfront lot, like the house below, or a dry lot, over 6 homes have recently had major remodeling done.

I love the new look!

Miami Is A Boater's Paradise

Whether you are here for the first time or have been here often, if you are here for boats check out the marina resources on the right hand side of this blog. Interested in properties that are close to marinas? How about homes with their own dock?  Boating around Miami, to the Bahamas or beyond is just one more reason I Love So Fla!

Housing Reports Expected Next Week

While the local real estate news has been giving us a snapshot of what has been happening in Miami’s real estate housing market, several housing reports are due out next week, which will give us a national picture of how the housing recovery is fairing.

  • Tuesday –  S&P Case Shiller home price index:  this index tracks changes in the value of residential real estate at both a national level as well as in 20 metropolitan regions (Miami is one them).  Although it is calculated monthly and is released on the last Tuesday of every month, it is published with a two month lag.  Tuesday’s report will include values through December 2010.
  • Wednesday – new home sales :  this report is based on a survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau that starts with the number of building permits authorized for single family homes .
  • Thursday  – pending home sales :  this index is prepared by the National Association of Realtors (NAR).  Because this report looks a homes that are currently under contract, it gives a good picture of where the housing market is headed in the next couple of months.  Although many of the pending sales fall through due to a variety of reasons (buyer’s don’t qualify or they get impatient waiting for a bank to approve a short sale are the main reasons in today’s market), many of the sales will close thereby absorbing inventory.

As of today, pending home sales in Coral Gables currently stand at 72 (24 since 1/1/11) versus an inventory of 410 active listings (45 new listings since 1/1/11).

Pinecrest pending home sales are 30 (7 since 1/1/11) and active homes for sale are 196  (17 added since 1/1/11).

Deering Bay Rentals Are A Great Way to Spend the Winter

This was today’s weather report for the Midwest.  While they were shoveling snow and trying to stay warm, I was planting more tomatoes, cleaning my pool, and getting surf updates from my son, who was surfing at Sebastian Inlet.  Want to get away for the winter?  Check out these rentals at Deering Bay.
