The Point of Aventura Expected to Get Large Scale Renovations Soon

Talk about a major overhaul! The Point of Aventura, a luxury condominium with a track record for excellence, is about to receive some major renovations that will make it even more magnificent.

From the salon to the yoga studio, lobby to the garden room – there won’t be an inch of The Point that isn’t improved during this major renovation.

In the end, the residents of this community will be restored to a level of prestige and comfort that they’ve come to expect and deserve.

Flurry of New Luxury Condos Is The Driving Force Behind Renovations

According to the above video, The Point’s Master Board passed the large scale renovation project during a recent meeting.

A major driving force behind the renovations is the fact that the South Florida real estate market is seeing a flurry of new construction activity in the luxury condominium market.

This is putting pressure on existing condominiums to undergo large scale renovations in order to keep pace with area competition. For instance, the nearby Williams Island recently underwent a $5 million renovation of its spa and fitness center.

The results have been nothing short of incredible, with an overwhelmingly positive response from the residents and even a boost in property sales.

Now it’s The Point’s turn to undergo a major renovation that will significantly improve quality of life at this luxury South Florida condo.

Here is a breakdown of the renovations that are expected for the various sections of the building:

The Salon

  • More square footage
  • Elevated ceilings with improved lighting
  • Resort level equipment
  • New retail area for products
  • Appropriate ventilation and exhaust to enhance the experience

The Spa

  • New sauna and steam equipment
  • Enhanced lighting throughout
  • Fully functional massage treatment rooms
  • Redesign of various amenities for improved layout

The Lobby

  • Modernized finishes
  • New reception area that’s strategically placed for better visual monitoring
  • Upgraded grand staircase
  • New multipurpose room

Garden Room

  • Upgraded lighting
  • Improved ceiling design for elegance and improved acoustics
  • New audio visual system with drop down projection screen
  • Multi-zone temperature and volume control

Upper Level

  • An independent exterior access point to public hallways that will prevent further interruptions in the garden room

Throughout the Building

  • Expanded and renovated yoga room
  • New multipurpose room
  • Dedicated Pilates room

Wow! That’s an lengthy list of improvements coming to The Point

I personally can’t wait to see how it all comes together.

It’s encouraging to see that community leaders are dedicated to improving quality of life for current and future residents.

What’s more, these luxury upgrades are sure to result in the skyrocketing popularity of this condo on the Aventura real estate market.

Now is An Ideal Time to Relocate to The Point Condos in Aventura

This is tremendous news for interested South Florida condo buyers who are in the market for a luxury condominium.

Aventura and Hollywood, Florida Condos for Sale

Here’s some additional information about the two condominiums planned for Aventura and Hollywood.

In Hollywood, the 24-unit Sage Beach will feature two-, three- and four-bedroom residences.

South Florida Developers Are Proposing Dozens of New Condominiums

South Florida luxury real estateDevelopers are feeling so confident with the South Florida real estate market lately that they’re planning on constructing dozens of new condominiums in the upcoming months and years.

According to a recent article I read, developers are proposing almost 55 new condominium projects totaling more than 10,000 units in the communities of Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.

This signals that the South Florida housing market is becoming increasingly robust and attractive for real estate transactions!

South Florida Luxury Condominiums for Sale

Miami-Dade County has been leading the area with new condominium projects in the works.

Evidently, there are nearly 40 proposed projects in the county, all of which total more than 7,900 units.

These condominiums are expected to be built in Aventura, Bal Harbour, Miami, Key Biscayne, Miami Beach, Sunny Isles including the development The Village at Island Estates that I am representing.

Broward County has the second most proposed projects with 11. These condominiums will bring an additional 1,600 units to the area and will be constructed in Fort Lauderdale, Hallandale Beach and Hollywood.

In third place is Palm Beach County with at least 5 proposed condominium projects totaling 700 units. These condominiums are expected to be constructed in Juno Beach and West Palm Beach as well as Gulf Stream.

Experts are saying many domestic and international prospective developers are sweeping South Florida searching for previously approved projects that were put on hold after the housing market bubble burst in 2007.

Leading the way in this latest condominium development blitz is the 23 Biscayne Bay condominium in Greater Downtown Miami.

One tower has already been constructed and an additional 11 are expected to be completed as soon as 2014.

As of the second quarter of 2012, buyers have purchased about 93 percent of the nearly 49,000 new condos created in the largest coastal markets during the most recent South Florida real estate boom that began in 2003.

At the current sales pace of nearly 150 units per month, the 3,400 unsold new condos could be acquired in the first half of 2014.

Many of these newly proposed condominiums appear to cater to niche markets, such as the high-end luxury condominium market.

These new developments plan to attract high-end buyers with such features as incredibly spacious balconies, automobile elevators and personal swimming pools.

Conditions Are Ideal to Purchase a Broward or Miami Dade County Home for Sale

The president of our company EWM Realty International recently released the latest housing market data for Broward and Miami-Dade counties.

The outlook is fantastic for interested South Florida home buyers, said Ron Shuffield.

Home sales have increased and the median home sales price is on the rise.

Continue reading to learn more about recent South Florida housing market activity to see how it compares to recent years.

Properties for Sale in Broward and Miami Dade Counties, Florida

Here’s a brief overview of what Mr. Shuffield reported about recent South Florida housing market activity:

  • In Miami-Dade County, the median price for a single-family home so far in 2012 is $200,000, up 12 percent when compared to the year before.
  • In 2011, the median price was about $150,000.
  • Also in Miami-Dade County, the median price for a condominium so far in 2012 is $150,000, up 21 percent when compared to the year before.
  • In Broward County, the median price for a single-family home in 2012 is $216,000, up 14 percent from 2011.
  • And the median price for a Broward County condominium in 2012 is $85,000, up 9 percent from 2011.

Mr. Shuffield explained that low sales prices, record low interest rates and affordable housing inventory at the foreclosure stage have driven the recent sales South Florida has seen.

As a result, available and affordable South Florida housing inventory is dwindling quickly.

For instance, in 2011, sales of foreclosed homes made up 65 percent of all home sales in South Florida. Now they represent 50 percent of all sales.

A Look Back at South Florida Real Estate Activity in 2011

The year 2011 was marked by increasing sales volumes, international home buyers using cash only and depressed home prices, according to a recent report from the Miami Association of Realtors.

Continue reading to learn more about how the South Florida real estate market fared at the end of 2011 – and what local real estate experts are predicting for 2012.

Florida Homes for Sale in the Aventura, Hallandale and Golden Beach Areas

Here’s an overview of some of the trends that South Florida REALTORS saw on the local housing market in 2011:

  • International home buyers spent about $3.5 billion in cash on distressed South Florida real estate
  • Although home sales increased and the total housing inventory decreased in South Florida, home prices remained relatively stagnant.
  • The South Florida rental market saw growth as former home owners became renters.
  • The home inventory in South Florida dropped to 28,000, or by about 40 percent.
  • Meanwhile, the shadow inventory of foreclosed homes that are not listed for sale yet increased to more than 200,000.
  • South Florida existing home sales increased at a slower rate than earlier in the year, although median home prices began to increase.
  • In Miami-Dade County, there were 1,064 condo sales in November, up 2 percent from November 2010.
  • Meanwhile, single family home sales increased by 11 percent year-over-year, to 755.
  • In Broward County, there were 1,089 condo sales in November, down 1 percent from November 2010.
  • Meanwhile, single-family home sales increased by 22 percent year-over-year, to 961.

Analysts are cautiously optimistic about what 2012 will bring for the South Florida real estate market.

While some believe that there isn’t likely to be any real market rebounds until 2013, others believe housing market activity will improve considerably in 2012.

Here are three predictions that the Miami Association of Realtors made for the new year:

  • Home prices will remain low. Experts believe that the high number of distressed properties on the market will keep home values depressed. As an illustration, more than half of all South Florida home sales in November involved a foreclosure or short sale. In a normal market, those types of properties would have made up less than 5 percent of sales.
  • There will be an increase in foreclosed properties on the South Florida real estate market. In 2011, there was a slowdown in foreclosed properties entering the market as banks dealt with a backlog of court repossession paperwork. But experts predict that slowdown will end in 2012, possibly dragging down home values further.
  • More people invest in the rental market, fueling South Florida home sales. While it may seem counter intuitive, an increasing number of South Florida investors are buying homes to turn them into rental properties because of the high demand for rental properties in the area. This in turn is helping create activity on the local real estate market.

Your South Florida Real Estate Expert

While we may not be out of the woods yet, there are plenty of signs to suggest that the sluggish South Florida real estate market is beginning to improve.

The year 2012 may become a turning point on the South Florida real estate market.
