1060 Brickell Ave. #2505
1 bedroom/1.5 baths | 963 sf of living space | Offered for rent at $2,250/month

You may recall that I listed this gorgeous unit in 1060 Brickell for rent earlier this month.  The owners have decided to reduce the asking price from $2,350 to $2,250, as they are motivated and prepared to rent it quickly.  This is a very competitive price for a unit in the “05” line, as others have been renting for $2,300-$2,350.  With 963 square feet, this is the largest 1 bedroom unit with a water view that is currently available in the building.  The unit is vacant and ready for immediate occupancy – contact me before it’s gone!

Just Listed: Beautiful and Bright 1 Bed/1.5 Bath Unit in 1060 Brickell

balconyleft_1200
1060 Brickell Ave. #2505
1 bedroom/1.5 baths | 963 sf of living space | Offered for rent at $2,350/month

I just listed this gorgeous 1 bedroom/1.5 bathroom rental in 1060 Brickell!   This unit is located in the “05 line” on the 25th floor, which overlooks Brickell Ave. and boasts beautiful water views.  It is one of the largest 1-bedroom floor plans in the building and has 963 square feet of living space.  The unit is being offered at $2,350 per month.

The unit is in impeccable condition and includes the following features:

  • Sparkling white porcelain tile floors throughout the living areas and bedroom, and marble floors in the bathrooms.
  • Hurricane impact glass windows and doors.
  • Large terrace with plenty of room for al-fresco dining, and the balcony floor is also tiled.
  • The interior layout includes a dining area off of the kitchen as well as a powder room for your guests.
  • Spacious living room has sheer shades on the sliding glass doors, and is large enough for a designated office area.
  • Kitchen has generous counter space and features stainless steel Bosch appliances, granite countertops, and European cabinets, as well as a laundry closet with stackable washer/dryer and extra storage.
  • Master bedroom has a nice-sized walk-in closet with shelving as well as custom blackout shades.
  • Master bathroom has marble floors and countertops, a marble-tiled shower wall, and the shower has a tub with a glass door enclosure.
  • Rental payment includes 1 assigned parking space in the garage, water/sewer and garbage, as well as basic cable.

Although I may be biased because I lived in the building for 3 years, 1060 Brickell is my favorite building in Brickell! It’s a newer building, completed in 2008, and consists of two towers (1050 and 1060), for a total of 570 units. The building has a beautiful pool and gym, complete with a yoga/aerobics room, steam rooms, showers and locker rooms. Unique amenities include a virtual golf room featuring an indoor golf simulator, Wine/Cigar lounge outfitted with temperature-controlled wine and storage cabinets and personal humidors for cigars, and a game room with a billiards table. The building has 24 hour doorman security, 24 hour valet parking, as well as ground-floor and mezzanine level retail and restaurants.  Best of all is the location – with Mary Brickell Village and the Metromover in your backyard, you can leave your car in the garage all weekend – no driving necessary!

I am thrilled for my buyers who just closed on this beautiful home in The Roads!  We had been searching for quite some time, but as soon as we saw this house, we knew it was perfect for them.  The home was built in 1936 and has been beautifully updated including a HUGE family room addition.  I love the combination of the home’s charming, original features and the modern, updated touches.

The Roads is a quiet little neighborhood just west of Brickell, known for its tree-covered streets and beautiful, historic homes.  It has become increasingly coveted in recent years for young families and professionals who desire a suburban feel but love the proximity to Downtown Miami and Brickell.  The neighborhood’s name comes from the fact that it is located off of the Miami street grid, so all of the streets are named “roads” instead of streets or avenues.  See the highlighted map below.

Market Update: 3 Bedroom Units in Brickell under $1,000,000

A1859495_K01_14

Back in August, I posted a market update showcasing all of the 3 bedroom listings available in Brickell.  At that time, there were about 70 or 80 units on the market.  Flash forward to today and that number has almost doubled.  Currently, there are a whopping 125 units with 3 bedrooms on the market in Brickell!  In an effort to streamline the information in this post,  I am only looking at 3 bedroom units that are priced below $1,000,000 (there are currently 57), and I will be focusing on price per square foot (opposed to list price).

Of the 57 active listings, the average list price per square foot is $438.33.  Your best value is unit 3024 at The Club at Brickell Bay (a short sale), which is asking $264/sf ($325,000).  This is a slight decline from August when the lowest price per square foot was $308 (that unit was also located at The Club).

The priciest listing is unit 1403 at the Icon Brickell, which is asking $655/sf ($995,000).  Again, this is a decline from August when the priciest listing (under $1,000,000) was asking $761/sf  (that unit was also located at the Icon Brickell).

This slight drop in price comes as no surprise, as Brickell’s bevy of new construction buildings has tapered the demand for resales.  Take a look at all the inventory, below:

As for closed sales, I took a look back at all of the 3 bedroom sales in the last 6 months (including listings above $1,00,000), and the average sales price per square foot was $562.  Again, this is a slight decline from August when the average sales price per square foot was $585.  If you exclude the properties priced above $1,000,000, the average sales price per square foot was $433.14.

The lowest priced sale was #2506 at The Vue, which sold for $227/sf ($352,800).  The priciest sale was #2401 at Asia on Brickell Key, which sold for $944/sf ($1,950,000).

Check out all of the closed sales below, and as always, contact me directly at 305-799-2124 or lindsayrubens@avatarflorida.com for more information about buying or selling a condo in Brickell or the surrounding neighborhoods.

Brickell Magazine | November 2014

If you live in Brickell or the surrounding neighborhoods, you’ve likely come across Brickell Magazine.  Well, be sure to check out the November ’14 issue (as well as the upcoming December and January issues) where you can spot my new ad (above an adorable, sleepy-eyed dog, of course!).  In fact, you can even check out the digital issue right here: http://tagupload.com/digital/BM/11_14/files/1.html.

The November issue is all about “Ode to Home” (how apropos!).   Jorge Arauz, Editor-in-Chief, writes:

“Invite someone into your home and they’ll have a pretty good idea of the type of person you are.  There are few things more special (and personal) than having guests drop in for a visit.  Where we choose to live, and the things we decide to surround ourselves with on a daily basis, gives a lot of insight into who we are, our interests and our beliefs.  I’ve been inside homes with no family portraits on the walls and I’ve been to homes where happy images of loved ones are blown-up to wall-size proportions.  I’ve seen homes where the furniture and layout is worked around an extensive art collection and I’ve been to places that don’t have a single piece of art on display.  Whether your house is big or cozy, cluttered or organized, modern or traditional, colorful or stark white, it serves as a canvas of sorts that gives the rest of the world a bit of insight into who you are and what matters to you.  And that’s really what it comes down to: Your home is an extension of you.  And that’s something we should all be proud of.”

What does your home say about you?
