Coral Gables Shines in Annual Miami Herald Real Estate Report

Coral Gables, home to The Astor Companies’ luxury residential project Merrick Manor, is the “hottest” area in Miami-Dade County for residential buyers, according to many of the county’s top real estate professionals.

The same group of industry leaders named Coral Gables the “best neighborhood for families with children” for the second consecutive year in the 2018 Miami Herald/Bendixen & Amandi real estate market study. Each year, the Herald and Miami-based polling firm Bendixen & Amandi team up to interview 100 of the county’s premier developers, brokers, analysts, investors and other experts to get a sense of the state of the local real estate market.

For the second straight year, Coral Gables was identified by the study participants as the top location where they would buy a home if they were in the market for one. Coral Gables also ranked second in the “best neighborhood for retirees” category.

Located at 301 Altara Avenue, Merrick Manor is the premier new development in Coral Gables. The 10-story, 227-residence project is located just steps away from the luxurious Shops at Merrick Park. Merrick Manor is well ahead of schedule and will be completed in 2018.

Astor recently unveiled the finished model residences at Merrick Manor. Tours of the model residences can be scheduled through the ONE Sotheby’s International Realty sales team.
