What Will $1 Million (Or Less) Buy in Coral Gables?

February 2019

Coral Gables has some of the most valuable real estate in South Florida, including five of the top 10 zip codes for property values. It’s median price per square foot ($423) is almost twice that of the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area.

To see what $1 million (or less) would buy today, we asked three real estate agents to submit one of their homes for sale in that price range – give or take a few hundred thousand dollars. Here is what they came up with, in different Gables locations.
