On this post, we finish answering the 12 Frequently Asked Questions About Selling Your Property.

Q: My property is a luxury townhouse. Does it require special marketing to get the highest price?

A: Yes. Our years of experience in sales show us that buyers often start looking for townhouses when they realize that a condo may be too small or that a single-family home requires too much maintenance. Specific sales skills tailored to these buyers will attract more quality offers.

Q: My property is a waterfront listing. What should my Realtor know?

A: This market is very narrow, with few available properties. The Realtor should be advised of all aspects of the property’s qualities, including information about the waterway and its depth/width, any bridge standards, what sort of protection it has from the elements, and any open water that you have, as well as any mechanical additions to dockage, such as davits, ladders, and boathouses.

Q: Do general real estate rules apply to the Coconut Grove market?

A: Yes. We would advise that you follow the routine guidelines shown below to assist us in your sale:

  • Disassociate yourself from the property.
  • Hire an expert Realtor specializing in the Coconut Grove market.
  • Prepare your property to be introduced to the market.

Welcome back to the 12 Frequently Asked Questions About Selling Your Property. We’re excited to answer more questions in this third part of the series.

My property is in a flood zone. Does that affect its value?

Yes and no. The elevation of a house can be much higher than the elevation of the land.

How can I improve my curb appeal to attract a buyer?

Coconut Grove features lush landscapes, flowers, and trees! Buyers coming in from around the world will likely be drawn to this beauty too. If possible, having fresh plants and a nicely groomed landscape is always a plus. Trim the edges around your garden, and be sure potential buyers can easily park.

Is my garage an asset?

Yes. A garage is a rare asset in the $1.5M and below market. Be sure to clean your garage before listing your property.

We're back with the second installment of the 12 Frequently Asked Questions About Selling Your Property Series.

Q: Why can’t I compare my single-family home in South Grove with the same type of home in North Grove?

A: It depends on the price point. For properties under $1M, the price per square foot is similar in both markets. Above this figure, the median and average sale price varies depending on the exact location within Coconut Grove.

Q: My property is in a gated community. Will buyers pay more for it?

A: Yes. It seems as if the whole world wants to live in Coconut Grove! Gated communities are limited in the Grove market and definitely deliver higher sales prices.

Q: New condos are being built in Coconut Grove. Does this affect the value of my existing condo?

A: Yes. New properties serve the luxury market, and we believe they will drive up sales prices across all of Coconut Grove.

Everyone has questions when it comes to selling property. The real estate market can be an uncertain place without the right guidance. We've put together a four-part series that answers 12 frequently asked questions about selling your property. Below, you'll find the answers to the first three frequently asked questions.

Q: What is the best time to sell my Coconut Grove property?

A: The second and third quarters of each year deliver the highest number of properties sold. This market activity will affect the quality of your offers.

Q: Do I have to tell my Realtor why I’m selling my property?

A: No. A good Realtor should never ask you that question. Selling your home is a business decision. A Realtor is hired to sell your property with the very specific objective of selling at the highest price in the least amount of time.

Q: What is the average sales price per square foot in Coconut Grove?

A: An average sales price is only relevant for the same type of product. For example, the square-foot price of a bungalow built in 1950 on a 12,000-square-foot lot will not be the same as new construction on a 7,000-square-foot lot. Coconut Grove properties are highly diverse. A median price is more accurate to evaluate the market as a whole. Average prices are only accurate for properties located in the same sub-market with similar characteristics. Square footage, number of bedrooms and baths, lot size, and architectural style affect your listing price.

The gap between homes for sale and the homes purchased is increasing. For example, in North and South Grove combined, 60% of single-family homes are priced over $1.5M, while only 24% of all homes sold at that price point during 4Q 2016. You can see the data and trends by looking at this chart of the number of single-family homes for sale versus sold 4Q 2016 per price point.
