Just Rented for Asking Price: 3167 Gifford Lane, Coconut Grove

038-4311322-medium4x33167 Gifford Lane, Miami, FL 33133
3 beds/4 baths | 2,491 sq ft | Built in 2015 | Rented for $6,200/month

Earlier this summer, I posted about this newer construction (2015) ultramodern townhouse that I had listed for rent in Center Coconut Grove.     You may recall that it is a nearly brand new, larger townhouse with 3 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and almost 2,500 square feet of living space.  It has all of the incredible bells and whistles that come with high-end new construction (impact glass throughout, sleek modern kitchen with white quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances, recessed LED lighting, indoor/outdoor sound system, advanced security system with outdoor cameras, porcelain tile “wood look” floors throughout), as well as a large rooftop patio with wet bar, two A/C zones, and a spacious backyard with a heated saltwater pool.  We had a ton of interest right from the get-go, and within just a couple weeks we received a full priced offer for $6,200 per month!

This transaction is a perfect example of how an experienced agent who specializes in a particular neighborhood can make all the difference (and can usually help a seller or landlord make more money!).  When my client initially asked me how much he could get to rent out his home, I knew I would not find any comparable properties on the MLS that had recently rented.  Since I live and work in the Grove and know the market so intricately, I was well aware that my client’s property was super unique and incomparable to the mostly older townhouses that had been renting in the neighborhood for around $4,500/month give or take.  My client was elated when I told him that I truly believed his property was worth $6,000 – $6,500 per month, as it was more comparable to a new or completely renovated single family home in the North or South Grove.  After careful consideration he decided to list it for $6,200/month, and we were thrilled to receive a full price offer just a couple weeks later.  Imagine if my client had listed the property with another agent who works outside of the Grove – s/he would most likely have relied on the MLS comparables and suggested a list price of $1,000 – $2,000 less per month!

Congratulations to my client on the sale of his beautiful studio at 1050/1060 Brickell! The Brickell market has proven to be quite challenging in recent months as there is a surplus of available units for sale thanks to the most recent condo boom. My seller was motivated and we priced the unit very competitively.  Ultimately, we received a cash offer with a quick closing, and everyone walked away happy!

I just rented this fabulous Center Grove townhouse to a wonderful family relocating to Miami. If it looks familiar, that’s because it was the third transaction I’ve completed on this property in less than three years!  It’s a great property in an amazing location, just steps away from everything the Grove has to offer.

My seller just reduced the asking price on this exquisite family home in the coveted Ponce/Davis neighborhood. This large family home was completed in 2008, boasts superb design and high-end detailed finishes, and is in pristine condition.  One of the best features of this property is its super private location, as it is tucked away on a lush, quiet cul-de-sac with only 3 neighboring homes. Located in an A-rated school district and just minutes from the shops and restaurants of South Miami and Sunset Place!

Just Rented: Gorgeous Condo at Epic Residences

FullSizeRender_4200 Biscayne Blvd. Way #3905, Miami, FL 33131
1 bedroom/1.5 bathrooms | 950 sq ft | Built in 2008 | Rented for $3,100/month

I just rented this stunning unit at Epic Residences in Downtown Miami.   Epic is a luxury hotel and condo building with 54 stories and 342 units, located just over the bridge that connects Brickell and Downtown Miami.  Epic offers some of the finest amenities and restaurants in Miami, including an Exhale spa and the world-famous Zuma restaurant.

This particular unit was a large 1 bedroom floor plan with 1 full bathroom, a powder room, and 950 square feet of living space. The unit had beautiful finishes including Snaidero cabinetry, stainless steel Miele appliances,
his and her vessel sinks, a 72” x 60” tub/shower, TOTO toilets and bidet, and spacious walk-in closets.  It had sparkling marble floors, custom window shades, an oversize balcony, and of course, that stunning view of Biscayne Bay.   The unit rented for $3,100/month.

My clients had been renting in the building for the last two years and needed to move because their unit was being sold.  They love living at Epic and could not imagine moving elsewhere, a sentiment that seems to be shared with the other residents in the building.

3038 Orange St., Miami, FL 33133
3 beds/2.5 baths | 2,318 sf | Built in 2004 | Rented for $4,650/mo

I just rented this great off-market townhouse in Center Coconut Grove.  Located on Orange Street, one of the best streets in Center Grove, this two-story property has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and 2,300+ square feet of living space.  It rented for $4,650/month.

As is the case with many of the townhouses in Center Grove,  this property feels more like a single family home than a “townhouse” thanks to the large square footage, spacious rooms, oversized master bedroom, and generous closet space.  The home has a one car garage, a fenced-in backyard with a patio, wet bar and pool, as well as a large terrace with french doors off of the master bedroom.  Extra perks included refinished and stained hardwood floors in the living room and staircase, as well as freshly painted walls throughout the home.

Properties like this one are few and far between as inventory continues to remain low in the Grove.  If you are interested in buying, selling or renting a property in Coconut Grove or the surrounding neighborhoods, contact me directly at 305-799-2124 or lindsayrubens@avatarflorida.com.
