Miami: these dream villas that break records

art miami invest real estate luxury real estate purchase sale rental villa house residence condo

The Miami real estate marketin recent years, has mainly developed around the construction of new properties (including modern houses on the water) and apartments. Views of the sea or the bay, proximity to the beach, tourist activities or schools in residential neighborhoods, everyone finds his share of dreams.

A small market but with a strong added value

In this growing market over the last five years, luxury villas have also put Miami on the national and international scene of the most expensive transactions. Number of more than 20 million homes on the market is limited, and the selling time is longer since this type of good corresponds to very exclusive buyers, and profiles often scattered around the world.

Today, the Miami Dade County (Greater Miami) has 34 homes for sale above 20 million and of course each is located on the edge of the Bay or Ocean. Since last week, the record deal of the year is the area of las Brisas, located in the heart of Coconut Grove, which has just been sold. The story of this sale illustrates how the ultra luxury segment must be close to zero defect. Las Brisas offers a plot of over 27,000 square meters and 9 bedrooms in a charming house renovated with taste and elegance on 1,500 square meters. Marketed at $ 65 million in 2014, it had to be lowered to $ 47.5 million in 2015, eventually selling for $ 34.6 million after 214 days.

The reason ? This house offered an extraordinary park, with a private harbor and a vast expanse of mangrove along the bay. This mangrove is protected, can not be removed, and the owner could not have views of the bays of the house. In addition, a historic school in Miami, Ransom Everglades, considered one of the best private high schools in the United States, adjoins this property, with a ring every hour ... Sow doubt among potential buyers. Barnes International had invited French journalists to discover this property in 2014 and then bet on an institutional buyer (dream box for a private art collector for example).

It is ultimately Ransom Everglades School itself that this week has acquired one of the most expensive properties in Florida, to develop its campus and enrich it with a unique heritage as architectural and environmental.

People, Stars but also Great multinational bosses attracted by the shores of Miami

Luxury properties are often the prey of world artists who find the calm, the climate and the proximity of international flights to travel the planet. Ricky Martin, Shakira, Tom Cruise, Sting to name a few. If Julio Iglesias chose the very select island of Indian Creek with a prestigious golf course in the heart of the island, his son Enrique had a house built in the "asian modern" style by the bay, in the very private community from Bay Point just steps from the Design District. But lately, great bosses have also succumbed to the charm of Miami and its islands where you can build the house of your dreams. Michael Burke, Chairman and CEO of Louis Vuitton has acquired land to build in Allison Island, near the beach, from 2014. The chairman of the group Moet Hennessy, Christophe Navarre, offered a villa at $8,3 million dollars in Bay Harbor Islands. Note that this same house had been purchased $3.9 million in 2006. The luxury villas, on the edge of the Bay, allow the highest capital gains.

For lovers, the two most expensive villas currently on the market are Casuarina Concourse, south of Miami, in the area of Gables Estates. For $ 49 million, the house offers more than 2,000 square meters of living space and a plot of 9,000 square meters. It is located on the edge of the Bay, with exceptional views of Miami, and at the end of a perfectly private tip. The second ranking of the most expensive, at $42,500,000 is located in Golden Beach, north of the city, one of the only places where one can be in house and on the edge of the ocean (these are the more often the apartments that have appropriated the ocean).
