Anyone For Tennis Or Golf?

I am often asked by prospective buyers and renters at Deering Bay if the list price includes access to all of the facilities. The answer is for the most part, no.  Deering Bay Yacht & Country Club offers a variety of equity and non-equity memberships giving access to its Arnold Palmer Golf Course, Har Tru clay tennis courts, Junior Olympic-sized pool, complete pro-shop, fitness studio and classes, world class dining facilities, and social events.   Equity memberships may be purchased by both Deering Bay residents and non-residents. All residents of Deering Bay enjoy the walking trails and sandy beach, and each of the five Condominiums and the Club Villas have their own swimming pool for residents to enjoy. deering-boats deering-bay

 

All equity and non-equity memberships include unlimited access to social events, world-class dining facility, Junior Olympic-sized resort pool, locker room, and fitness facilities.

Equity Memberships:Deering_Bay_Yacht_Country_Club_1_233662

  • Golf Membership: offers full, unlimited access to its Arnold Palmer Golf Course along with all other sporting facilities.
  • Tennis Membership: setup for non-golfers, offers very restricted golfing. Unlimited access to tennis courts and all other amenities.

Non-Equity Memberships:

  • Social Membership: provides no access to sporting facilities, all other amenities are available.
  • Summer Membership: (Memorial Day – November) offers unlimited access to all amenities. At the end of the trial, a portion of the fee can be applied to an equity membership if member wishes to do so. It’s a great way to test the waters!

And the Real Estate Forecast Continues to be Sunny Skies……

 

Ron Shuffield, President and genius data cruncher at EWM Realty International delivered our spring outlook last week and the forecast is SUNNY!  Watch this quick video to hear it for yourself, but in a nut shell Ron summarized the last three years of real estate sales in Dade County (2011-2013) as being record breakers.  Each year the number of sales of single family homes and condominiums exceeded the prior year, and these were double digit increases!

 

 

Ron expects to maintain high levels of sales in 2014.  Our indicator of future sales is the amount of inventory of properties for sale, more specifically,  the ‘number of months’ of inventory available. In Dade County we have about 5-6 months of supply right now, which Ron believes is a healthy amount.  In my 20 years selling homes in Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, South Miami, Palmetto Bay, and Pinecrest, I find that a little on the low side, and with that trend prices usually increase.  As Ron says in the video, it is very “neighborhood specific”.

South Miami Number of Homes For Sale & Sold in the past year 1mil - 2milSouth Miami Number of Homes For Sale & Sold in the past year 500,000-1mil

I’m working with a lot of Buyers looking for homes in South Miami, Coral Gables,
and Coconut Grove in the $650,000-$1,000,000 range, and there are very few options out there.  In South Miami alone there is
very little, and even if we stretch budgets up over $1,000,000 the same holds true.

Buyers need to be working realtors who know the market, and know the minute a new home comes on the market. That’s what it often boils down to –  seeing a home and making an offer on day ONE.  Best news in Ron’s spring forecast is that our prices are generally still 35%-40% less than they were at the peak of 2007, and so there are still tremendous values in Miami.
