Coconut Grove Real Estate Blog | The Real Estate Coconut

Ye Little Wood Is A Coconut Grove Treasure

Coconut Grove Real Estate Blog | The Real Estate Coconut

Many of Coconut Grove's gated communities were once the large estates of a single owner and subsequently sub-divided into smaller parcels of land.  One exception to this is Ye Little Wood which was the first platted community in Coconut Grove. Ye Little Wood dates back to 1883 when the United States granted William Ewan of South Carolina 160 acres of land in Coconut Grove.  Several years later he sold 10 acres of this land to John Webb Little for $3,350.00 a...Continue Reading!

The Waterfront Lifestyle Of Coconut Grove

Coconut Grove Real Estate Blog | The Real Estate Coconut

The water is a big part of the Coconut Grove lifestyle.  For me, getting out on the water is an escape from the round-the-clock phone calls and meetings that come along with this job.  Coconut Grove's waterfront location gives its residents the ability to hop on their paddle board, boat or kayak at a moment's notice. There is no better way to really appreciate Biscayne Bay than with water views right from your living room or terrace.  Coconut Grove offers two...Continue Reading!

Coconut Grove Real Estate Blog | The Real Estate Coconut

I recently wrote about 2 foreclosure units that came on the market in the gated community of The Cloisters.  The list price on both was $1,295,000.  One of the two units has just been posted as a closed sale.  It sold for $1,400,000 which is $105,000 above asking price.  Considering that the unit was only 65% completed on the inside, the sale price came in at market value.
