GAME ON, THE MIAMI BEACH MARKET IS IN PLAY…WATERFRONT HOME LOCATED AT 6050 NORTH BAY ROAD SELLS IN ONLY 12 DAYS!March 10, 2009
One of my clients, like many buyers today, was having an identity crisis. Who was he, an owner or a renter? Until last week, he was a SIDELINER, a browser looking for a deal in the Miami Beach real estate market. He was on the verge of leasing a unit at the Continuum I on South Beach, when I introduced him to a mid century modern house at 6050 North Bay Road. This property was on the market for less than two weeks, my client recognized the opportunity I presented him with and jumped on it! Calculating the numbers, he concluded it was more cost effective to maintain the house than spend $10,000 a month renting a 2/2 in the Continuum I. Built in 1951, 6050 North Bay Road sits on a lot just under 20,000 SF with 77 FT of water frontage, unobstructed views of Biscayne Bay and a spacious interior with over 4,000 SF. Next door neighbor, Oscar Award winning movie star Matt Damon, paid $4.2M in December 2005 for virtually the same size lot, although the house was a tear down. Damon’s primary residence was acquired in April 2005 for $10.3M.
