Nation Saw Rapid Townhouse Growth in 2018

IMG_1972

The national market for townhouses is up 24 percent over the last four quarters of data production of townhouses, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). In fact, the townhouse market is growing eight times as fast as the overall single-family market.

Across the nation, the NAHB points to rising construction and land costs, as well as soaring prices for new single-family homes, as some of the reasons why builders and buyers are turning to the high-density urban model.

Locally, in Center Coconut Grove, we see more townhouse resales than new construction simply because of the lack of available land. Yet, the demand for both townhouse resales and new construction sales remains strong in Coconut Grove as more and more homebuyers (millennials and empty nesters alike) desire the Grove’s central location, as well as a mix of suburban and urban elements that the Grove provides.  Additionally, many buyers find that the townhouse provides more bang for your buck in Miami, where single family home prices skyrocketed in recent years.

Below are some of the available townhouse listings in Coconut Grove. For more information about buying or selling a townhouse in Coconut Grove or the surrounding neighborhoods, contact me directly at 305.799.2124 or LRubens@bhsusa.com.

Congratulations to my buyers who recently closed on their gorgeous new construction homes in Center Coconut Grove! The two townhouses, located on Jackson Ave. and Shipping Ave., were designed and built by the same developer, Drive Development. The projects were truly a labor of love as both buyers worked tirelessly with the developer from start to finish to customize nearly every detail of the homes.

These townhouses are unlike any other property currently existing in Center Coconut Grove, from the extra large floor plans to the custom millwork, supreme finishes and high quality construction.  Scroll below to view all of the beautiful renderings and photos of these homes.
