Rarely on the market do we find completely sustainable, off the grid, homes in Miami Beach. 227 N Shore Drive in Miami Beach is a completely remodeled and solar paneled with 2,721 square feet on a guarded island  within Normandy Isles. The home has direct access to the recently refurbished Normandy Golf Club and tennis facility, and is right on the water without any fixed bridges for direct ocean access. The home was originally built in 1957 and is a cinder block style home with traditional 1950’s lines. It has 4 beds and 3 baths with a completely remodeled and modern kitchen. All glass and doors have been replaced and are impact resistant, the counters in baths and kitchen are quartz. Plumbing, electrical, and AC have been replaced, along with a new roof. This is an ideal home for the modern art enthusiast, or waterloving family.

Normandy Isle is at the very tip of Miami Beach, before it becomes North Miami Beach. It is situated in between North Bay Village and North Miami Beach and is one of the most convenient and stunning locations in South Florida, however it is also tucked away. The Canyon Ranch Spa is locataed minutes away, as well as the ocean. Some of the restaurants that are popular for those living on the Venetian are Prima Pasta, Lou’s Beer Garden, and the Fifi’s Seafood.

The Wallstreet Journal released numbers via regarding the inventory of available homes for sale this July. In July, national real estate inventory rose 1.4% from June. It is the highest level since September this year. According to the report listings rose in 17 out of 30 cities polled and nationally is up to 1.96 million homes. Inventories increased by the largest amounts in Atlanta, Sacremento, Los Angeles, and Orlandao. Those markets that continue to decrease are Detroit, Boston, Denver, San Francisco, and Las Vegas. The supply of homes is still comparatively speaking, low.

 Mortgage rates are increasing and those who have thought about selling in the past, are now placing their homes on the market. Median home prices have stabilized with all of the new homes on the market, however this stabilization comes after months of large increases. These numbers do not represent new construction or those homes that are for sale by owner. In Miami, the inventory is slightly up but still very much constricted compared to last year. Home prices have steadily and markedly increased. If you are looking to sell your home, you could not find a better time.

Last year the Perry Hotel, formerly the Gansevoort, was purchased for $230 million. The jointly held property has undergone a massive renovation to the tune of $100 million dollars. 1 Hotel will be open early next year and is Miami Beach’s first completely LEED certified hotel and residence development. This is the first location of this new hotel brand and while it will be ecologically minded, it will also be complete luxury and will rival the Setai or W. Additionally, the hotel will have residences for sale.

In its’ complete state the hotel will have 417 rooms and 163 residences. The pricing will be between $600,000 to $6 million. These prices make this property comparable to the listings available at the W Hotel and Residences. Everything in this property has been remodeled, so if you remember the Gansevoort or the Perry, erase it and rebuild. Some of the renovations include, new boardwalk, new balconies, new views, 4 new pools, and new lobby. Imagine the feelings of relaxation and fun of The Standard and add in more luxury and a prime South Beach location, and you would arrive at the 1 Hotel. For more information on this hotel as it develops check back with us!
