Private Inlaw Suites and Pools are Popular in These South Florida Homes

In our Greater Miami and Fort Lauderdale neighborhoods, we have noticed that people buying homes now more than ever seek ample and private room to accommodate guests and inlaws, one or more dedicated office areas, as well as outdoor space, particularly with a pool, for social distanced entertainment.

These appeals, coupled with current low interest rates, are the top reasons home shoppers have decided that now is the time to buy a  home in South Florida. Conveniency of a large garage, benefits of building a home your way, and the health-friendliness of advanced new home features are among the other reasons we are experiencing increased interest and demand in all of our new home properties.

Our new modern homes in Miami, Miramar, Southwest Ranches and Ave Maria, Florida have met the needs of so many South Floridians and people relocating to South Florida in search of a place to stay at home in style and comfort. Demand for all that new construction homes have to offer is at a high, and if you are among those house hunting, we encourage you to speak with a CC Homes representative at your soonest convenience and we will help you determine which of our homes and neighborhoods is right for you and how much home you can afford.

Real Estate Firms Adapt To COVID, Prepare For Post-Pandemic Era

We find ourselves at an intriguing juncture in the novel coronavirus pandemic’s evolution. Just as promising vaccines burst into prominence, promising a brighter post-COVID era, we also stand at the dawn of a predicted unprecedented surge in COVID infections, bringing what’s sure to be a concomitant spike in hospitalizations, ICU stays and deaths. “It’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better,” seems the understatement of the autumnal season.

Given all the uncertainty, this could be an opportune moment to capture a snapshot of the real estate industry’s response, as seen through the lens of several widely disparate trends and developments.

Coral Gables, Fla.-based development, investment and property management firm Codina Partners proved visionary in rolling out its “Codina Cares” signature program to its South Florida and Texas properties just as COVID’s impact seemed to wane in early summer. As if certain a second wave would grip the nation in the months ahead, Codina implemented a number of measures at the commercial properties of its Downtown Doral mixed-use community in west Dade County.

The program included everything from the expected safe-distance floor decals and hand sanitizer stations to assistance for tenants in obtaining PPE, thermometers, signage and furniture storage. The initiative even went so far as to import traveling artists and musical acts ranging from Brazilian vocalists to jazz trios into Downtown Doral to entertain the community’s residents every weekend. “It is important to keep people’s spirits up,” says Ana-Marie Codina Barlick, CEO of Codina Partners.
