What $900,000 Will Buy

November 2019

One of the greatest assets of Coral Gables is its residential neighborhoods, and the homes that fill them. Because it has such a high median value (at $451 a square foot, more than twice that of the median square foot value for South Florida as a whole), it can be hard to find anything affordable for a young family. This month we look at what you can buy today for about $900,000. We asked three real estate agents to submit a home for sale in that price range. Here is what they came up with, in different Gables locations.
