There is definitely an upward trend in single-family home sales in Miami-Dade County, says a Caribe Homes developer.
“The December 2012 Housing Market Report stated that last year Miami-Dade County saw the highest number of sales since September of 2003. Undoubtedly, now is the time to buy. We’ve been here long enough to have lived through the housing cycles and know that this is the right time for buyers,” says Fernando Martinez, Caribe Homes developer, now CEO of FM Realty.
In more than 25 years, Caribe Homes built more than 4,000 homes for first-time homeowners who were allowed the unique opportunity of owning rather than renting. Caribe has received numerous recognitions and won awards for their affordable homes, high construction standards, practical design innovations and functional features, a formula that he replicated in the construction of Cutler Bay Estates, says Martinez. Within 10 months of completing Cutler Bay Estates the homes sold out.
“We were fortunate in selling out so fast. I attribute this to the value equated with Caribe Homes. We were confident there would be a market looking for superior construction at an affordable cost but we never imagined the demand would be so overwhelming,” says Martinez.
With Cutler Bay Estates I and III, Caribe Homes will give buyers the best option available to them, says Martinez.
“It’s simple, we are offering new homes for the price of a foreclosed or short-sale home. Our customers will be purchasing a new Cutler Bay home with the peace of mind that Caribe Homes guarantees. I am confident that no one can match or beat our price when delivering a new home like ours. No one,” Martinez claims emphatically.
Cutler Bay Estate I models are the Carmen, with three bedrooms, two baths, family room, breakfast area, covered terrace and entry, and a two-car garage; in all, more than 2,650 square feet at $319,900. The Maria model, at more than 2,975 square feet, has four bedrooms, two and one half baths, family room, breakfast area, covered terrace and entry, and a two-car garage, for $349,900.
Boasting 13,500-square-foot lots, Cutler Bay Estates III features two models: the Daniella, with four bedrooms, three and one half baths, family room, breakfast area, covered terrace and entry, and a two-car garage; in all, more than 3,500 square feet at $379,900. The Victoria model, at more than 3,900 square feet, has five bedrooms, four and one half baths, family room, breakfast area, covered terrace and entry, and a two-car garage, for $419,900.
All four models include 18-inch tile in the living area and plush carpeting in the bedrooms. Both the kitchen and the baths have granite counter tops and wood cabinetry. Features include wiring for cable TV, telephone and ceiling fans; smoke detectors; high-efficiency central air-conditioning and heating; brick paver driveway and walkway; hurricane panels; kitchen appliances such as 22-cubic foot refrigerator with ice-maker and in-door water dispenser, garbage disposal, electric range, built-in microwave and dishwasher; and washer and dryer.
Southland Mall, with a Macy’s among its retailers, is within close proximity. For those who enjoy sailing or fishing, Black Point Marina is 10 minutes away and golfers can enjoy a round at Deering Estates. Miami International Airport is 20 miles away.
Caribe has great homes, unbeatable rates, an ideal location and its own approved lender on site approving buyers immediately, says Martinez.
