Coconut Grove Townhouse sold in 13 Days

Congratulations to the seller of my townhouse listing as she just started a brand new life in her new home in Naples, Florida.  The move was a bit quicker than she had anticipated as we were under contract in 13 days.  Luckily for everyone, she had already bought her new home and was ready for the move.

The timing was perfect as the market here in Coconut Grove is bustling and the inventory is very low.  This 2/2 with 1,116 sq ft sold for $290,000.  The last unit in this community sold, by me, for $230,000. in April of 2011 and at that time we were thrilled as the market was still a bit iffy. 

I would say and I have been saying, the market has turned!!
