Coral Gables Median Priced Homes = 3X More Expensive than Merrick Manor!

If Merrick Manor being down to its last few available condominiums is not enough to get you off the sidelines, consider this statistic: the median home price in Coral Gables is currently $1.9 million. That is three times more expensive than Merrick Manor’s available condos, which are priced under $600,000! 

These remaining Merrick Manor one-bedrooms are ideal for those seeking to begin their journey into residential ownership. A new report describes how condos have become the “new starter home” for many buyers. First-time condo owners benefit from the savings on insurance, property taxes and cost of upkeep compared with single-family homes. 

“I decided to buy a condo to establish myself in the housing market,” one recent buyer told “I also figured it was a good way to get my feet wet without taking on too much all at once.” 

“Buying a condo helped him ease into homeownership without a lot of debt and the burden of being responsible for exterior maintenance like a new roof or siding, which are typically covered by condo fees,” the article states. 

At Merrick Manor, owners also enjoy easy access to the building’s resort-style pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, news café and club lounge. The financial and lifestyle benefits make it a no-brainer for today’s buyer.
