Numbers Don’t Lie: the Value Opportunity in Coral Gables is with Condominiums


The single-family market is out of reach for many buyers in Coral Gables, as prices continue to skyrocket. That means condominiums are a great value option for those who seek to call the City Beautiful home.

Over the three-month period from August through October 2020, the median price of Coral Gables single-family homes surged to $1.05 million, a year-over-year jump of 14.5% (from $900,000) and 11% increase from the previous three months ($939,000), according to a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty analysis of Multiple Listing Service (MLS) data. Many potential buyers are being priced out of the city’s single-family market.

Another factor that makes condominiums more appealing, particularly Merrick Manor – the only brand-new condominium offering in Coral Gables – is that many of the single-family homes in the city are older and need significant renovations despite their expensive price tags. Merrick Manor residences are turnkey and available for prices starting at $489,990.

Located at 301 Altara Avenue, the 10-story, 227-residence Merrick Manor’s pet-friendly amenities and lifestyle truly cannot be beat. Merrick Manor also has a Zillow Walk Score of 77, making it “very walkable.”

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty is the exclusive residential sales and marketing representative for Merrick Manor.
