One of the first things that many buyers (especially out of town clients) tell me is that they want to buy in a Coconut Grove gated community. They feel more comfortable knowing that they have an added level of privacy and security. Unfortunately I have to break the news to them that with just 15 homes for sale , the inventory in our gated communities is extremely low.
It is interesting to look at the average asking prices compared to the average selling prices over the past 12 months for this segment of the market. You can see from the chart below that the supply is out of line with demand. While the average asking price is $6,600,000, or $841.00/sq. ft., the average selling price is $4,600,000 or $629.00/sq. ft.
Insider’s Tip! When Coconut Grove homes in gated communities hit the market at list prices of $3,000,000 and below, they tend to get snapped up quickly. We recently placed our listing located at 3530 De Garmo Lane in De Garmo Estates under contract in less than 30 days. It was listed for $2,500,000.
Below is a list of the homes sold over the past 12 months in Coconut Grove’s Gated Communities:
