PRLog - April 27, 2011 - MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- Linda “G”, with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty in Miami Beach recently closed on a luxury oceanfront condominium in one of the most trendy luxury condominium properties in Sunny Isles, Miami Beach – The Trump Palace.
Breathtaking Views from this Luxury Condominium
This memorable waterfront condominium home featured 2 Terraces (a sunrise and sunset terrace) for eastern ocean views and western Intracoastal and Miami cityscape views. This Trump Palace luxury condominium is one of the most sought after thru-view floor plans with breathtaking views of the Ocean, Intracoastal and downtown Miami. Private elevator leads to the hand painted wood veneer and silver leaf double doors. Soaring ceilings, floor to ceiling windows. Gourmet State-of-the-
Trump Palace is one of 3 luxury oceanfront towers in the Trump Grande Resort property in Sunny Isles, Miami Beach. Soaring to unrealized heights, no expense had been spared in the design of this spectacular condominium property. A magnificent obsession with detail is perfected in its generously apportioned interiors and flawless craftsmanship, made all the more exceptional by an incomparable offering of personal service and amenities.
Linda “G” with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty adds, "The Trump Grande Resort is an absolutely beautiful oceanfront property in Sunny Isles Beach. It was a privilege and honor to have represented this beautiful luxury condominium residence at Trump Palace".
This luxury condominium closed at $1,200,000 with a closing just over 30 days from the sale date. View more about this property at the exclusive website for this listing here – http://www.TrumpPalaceLuxuryCondo.com
Linda “G” stated “I am very happy with closing this property at the sale price of $1,200,000. A recent sale of an identical floor plan and unit location just 3 floors below sold for $1,000,000. This 49th floor unit was sold unfurnished for $1.2m which is right in line where I believe the value of this property and home should be valued.
As the selling agent, the negotiation process can at times be very challenging, especially these past few years, taking into consideration the uncertainties we are faced with every day with a large portion of the real estate market. This luxury oceanfront condominium was listed at a fair price and even in today’s market, I believe that a luxury oceanfront property, such as Trump Palace and a number of other select properties in the area, should be able to hold it’s value, even during the toughest of negotiations.
Linda then added, “As I do represent both sellers and buyers, I am very familiar with both sides of the negotiations.”
Commenting further, she added, “Certainly buyers are always looking for the best deal, and when I represent a buyer that is also my goal, but at the same time I let my buying clients know that property valuations and pricings are unique for each building, each location, each floor plan and more. If we are looking at a specific unit that is listed at a realistic price, or listed close to what I consider a realistic price, I let my buyers know that despite their possible desire to try and negotiate a much lower price for that “steal deal”, that we also run the risk of losing a chance to buy what might very well be their dream home and at an already realistic price from the beginning. I recognize that every seller and their selling position is unique, so I’m happy to test the waters of lower pricing possibilities, but a well priced high quality luxury oceanfront or waterfront home or condominium should be recognized for those very unique facts.”
Linda also remarked that in the last few years she is working with buyers that have done a lot more of their own research. “While knowledge is power, and I’m glad to see more people educating themselves prior to contacting me, I have the occasional buyer contact me and begin to share with me all about the graphs and charts that they previewed on a website or blog about median home or condominium prices for a particular city or zip code area here in South Florida, I try and make it clear that while those numbers are enlightening, those numbers can be misleading and mean less than they might realize when looking to negotiate prices at a specific luxury building located directly on the ocean or water, whether that property is in Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Bal Harbour or Miami Beach.”
According to Linda, while we all know that real estate prices throughout the country have fallen due to many economic factors, there is still a limited amount of South Florida luxury oceanfront condominium properties and homes to be had, and that uniqueness in itself certainly adds value to that market. The South Florida condominium boom of earlier this last decade created a frenzy of investors and a glut in the South Florida real estate market just as the U.S. economy entered into the recession. It was a “perfect storm” to some degree and it’s effects will be felt for many years to come. Despite these facts, while downtown Miami and other inland areas may very well struggle for a few more years to get buyers to buy up many of the available condominium homes, that same problem will not plague (to the same degree) the more exclusive and luxury waterfront and oceanfront areas of South Beach, Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles Beach and other communities located directly on the ocean.
Linda has recently closed on 3 of her own exclusive oceanfront listings in Bal Harbour and Sunny Isles Beach - Total sales in excess of $5,400,000.
