The Coral Gables housing market has slipped slightly over the past year, but the prognosis is good. While prices are down 0.8 percent from last year, Zillow predicts that prices will rise 2.8 percent by 2021, so now might be a good time to buy. Currently, the median value of a home in Coral Gables is $797,290 – more than twice the median home value for Miami-Dade County as a whole ($302,600). The median price per square foot ($454) is also almost twice the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach average ($230).To see what $6 to $9 million would buy today, we asked three real estate agents to submit one of their homes for sale in that price range.
