In yet another sign that the real estate market continues its perpetual up and down motions, the month of February proved to be a good one for home sales…pending home sales that is.  Last month, pending home sales increased in Miami-Dade County thanks largely to the continued drop in prices and tax perks.

Compared to January, the number of people who signed on the dotted line and decided to become homeowners shot up by nine percent, accounting for more than 9,000 condominium and traditional home sales.  When compared to 2009, the increase is considerably more substantial at just over sixty percent.  For the unaware, a pending home sale occurs when a contract has been signed but the transaction has yet to close.

Besides the tax perks, a number of condos and townhomes currently have price tags of less than $250,000 which may also be contributing to the pending home sales upswing.  Regardless, it’s a nice dose of good news in a climate that remains unclear.

In terms of prestige, it doesn’t get much more impressive than the stunning Cocoplum community within the equally wealthy city of Coral Gables.  Comprised of a large collection of breathtaking single family homes, the entire community is designed to be aesthetically captivating.  Take a stroll throughout the neighborhood and you’ll quickly notice that Cocoplum completely embodies the word majestic.

Cocoplum real estate starts at less than $1 million but all of the properties generally fall under the category of luxury.  Depending on what you’re looking for, you can choose from a three bedroom home or upgrade to a truly lavish property with six bedrooms and nearly 10,000 square feet.  The diversity of Cocoplum homes offers plenty of flexibility for your needs.

Because Cocoplum is within Coral Gables, you’re just minutes away from places like the esteemed University of Miami, Coconut Grove, the historic Biltmore Hotel and the many shopping sites at Miracle Mile and the Village of Merrick Park.
