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

Miami-Dade County, Florida Real Estate is Booming!

Things are continuing to look up for the South Florida real estate market, according to the most recent data released.

Evidently, more and more investors are coming to South Florida to get a piece of the action – which in turn is strengthening our local housing market.

Miami, Florida Area Homes for Sale

According to the most recent article I read in the Miami-Herald, plenty of private equity firms in the area are snatching up prime South Florida real estate lately.

For example, Fort Capital recently purchased the historic Surf Club in Surfside. It is expected to be revitalized and later sold.

That’s what the company did after it bought most of the Capri South Beach along with other coveted pieces of South Florida real estate.

Experts say that the South Florida market is getting hotter and hotter, with demand rising.

This is particularly true in the hotel arena, where investors are buying and building hotels left and right!

The latest activity reflects a national trend in which the lodging industry is expected to spend more than $5 billion this year on upgrades that range from redesigned lobbies to additional fitness centers and restaurants.

Here in South Florida, some of the more specific drivers to this recent hotel boom include rising tourism numbers, scarcity of available land and more lenient lending policies.

Here’s what else you should know about the South Florida hotel industry:

  • Through September, hotels in Miami-Dade were more than 76 percent full, which is up slightly from the same period a year before.
  • Room rates in South Florida increased by 7 percent to almost $163.
  • Revenue per available room in South Florida also grew by about 8 percent year-over-year to $124.55.
  • Hotel transactions volume is expected to be about $650 million in the county this year, up 13 increase when compared to 2011

You may be thinking to yourself – that’s great but what exactly does this mean for the South Florida residential housing market?

Since everything is inter-connected, more interest and investments in the South Florida hotel market will likely lead to more interest and investments in the South Florida real estate market as well!

South Florida Commercial Real Estate Market Showing Signs of Improvement

The South Florida commercial real estate market is making great strides – albeit at a slow pace.

Evidently, recent data suggests that office vacancies are on the decline. In addition, regional and national retailers are expanding once again.

This has huge implications to the greater South Florida real estate market. After all, everything is connected when it comes to economics.

Thus, as the commercial real estate market continues to improve, that is only bound to help the residential real estate market continue to improve as well.

Commercial Real Estate in South Florida

According to the recent article I read in the Sun-Sentinel, office vacancies in both Broward County and Palm Beach County are down year-over-year, although they are still relatively high.

Here’s the most recent data on commercial real estate in South Florida:

  • The office vacancy rate in Broward County was 14.3 percent from July to September, down from 14.6 percent a year ago.
  • Meanwhile, Palm Beach County’s vacancy fell from 19.5 percent to 18.7 percent in that same year.
  • Generally speaking, a strong market would have vacancy rates between 8 to 10 percent.
  • During the third quarter of 2012, Broward County’s office rental rates fell from $24.75 to $23.75 when compared year-over-year.
  • Meanwhile, rates in Palm Beach County fell from $26 to $25.75 during that same period.
  • More restaurants and retail shops are leasing space as well.

Although these may seem like small improvements, this recent commercial real estate data suggests that the market is currently experiencing a rather positive trend.

This will pay off on the South Florida real estate market. After all, a more robust commercial real estate market will attract more workers and home buyers to the area – which will in turn create positive growth on the local housing market.

Luxury South Florida Condos Planned for Aventura and Hollywood Florida

Two more luxury condominiums are coming to the South Florida real estate market, according to a recent article I read.

The Miami Herald reported that Property Markets Group is planning luxury condos for both Aventura and Hollywood!

Evidently, PMG is working with the well-respected architect Carlos Otton in planning these new projects.

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.

These units will all come with private elevators, a plunge pool and grand foyer.

The units at Sage will range from 2,000 to 2,850 square feet and will have an average price per square foot of roughly $650.

In Aventura, PMG is planning a 190-unit condominium community known as ECHO.

This community will feature 2-, 3- and 4- bedroom floor plans with interior designs by Yabu Pushelberg.

In each one of these Aventura condominium units, interested South Florida buyers will find such desirable features as kitchens on each terrace, private elevators, Apple technology-compatible infrastructure and more!

ECHO’s units are expected to range from 1,600 to 4,000 square feet, with an average price per square foot of $550.

South Florida Seeing a Shortage of Foreclosures

The outlook continues to look rosier and rosier for South Florida home sellers lately!

According to the most recent media reports, there’s a shortage of foreclosures for sale.

Rates of foreclosed homes for sale have dropped in both Miami-Dade and Broward County!

This is great news for area home sellers since foreclosures generally pull down the median sales price, meaning that it’s harder for sellers to get the price they want for their own home.

Real Estate for Sale in Aventura, Sunny Isles, Golden Beach, Hallandale, Hollywood and More

Here’s an overview of the most recent South Florida market data, according to the Miami Herald:

  • Broward County foreclosures-related home sales were about 3,259 during the second quarter, down 31 percent from last year.
  • In Palm Beach County, there were about 2,966 foreclosure sales, down 15 percent from a year before.
  • Miami-Dade foreclosures down about 29%.
  • Distressed properties account for 20 percent of all sales in Broward County.
  • In that county, the average price for homes is $126,230.
  • Meanwhile, distressed properties account for 22 percent of all sales in Palm Beach County.
  • In that county, the average price for homes is $121,766.
  • During the week ending on Oct 24, there were a total of 9,149 homes for sale on the Miami, Florida real estate market, including more than 2,000 that were in some stage of the foreclosure process.
  • Also during that week, the average listing price for Miami homes was $592,559, up 0.7 percent from the previous week.
  • Between July and September, the median sales price for a 1-bedroom Miami home was $120,000
  • The median sales price for a 2-bedroom home was $119,050
  • And the median sales price for 3- and 4-bedroom homes was $150,100 and $225,000, respectively.

As previously noted, foreclosure sales have a negative impact on area home sellers because they tend to pull the median home sales price and market values down.

Thus, the fact that foreclosure-related sales are dropping is a positive sign for area home sellers who want to get the best price on their home!
