Record-breaking 1 Bedroom Rental at Marinablue

Marinablue 1 bedroom rental breaks record

Last week, unit 1101 at Marinablue rented for $3,350 per month – crushing its own record for highest price ever paid for a 1 bedroom rental at Marinablue. Last August, the same unit rented for $3,000 per month. The 12 percent year-over-year increase in its rental price should attest to the strength and validity of the rental market in Park West. With an amazing, 30-acre park across the street, imminent groundbreaking of Miami Worldcenter, and a science museum that is slated to open next summer, the neighborhood is becoming a highly attractive place to live. The best part about setting the record is that it didn’t take long for me to locate a qualified tenant for the property. The offer that ultimately took the unit was sent to me within 24 hours of sharing the rental to my social media accounts.

Unit 1101 at Marinablue is a very special and beautiful property. It’s a fully furnished, two-story loft with 1,152 interior square feet and incredible, 18-foot glass walls providing 270-degree views of Biscayne Bay, the American Airlines Arena, Museum Park, and the Downtown Miami skyline. The uniqueness of the property has translated into an outstanding rental yield for my client. He purchased the property just last year for $475,000. After accounting for property taxes and condo dues, that translates into a a rental yield of 4.7 percent, which is unheard of for this type of property and/or these type of views.

Marinablue condo sales and rentals website

Welcome to Our New and Improved Marinablue Condo Sales and Rentals Website

Marinablue condo sales and rentals website

It is with great pleasure that I introduce our new and improved website for Marinablue condo sales and rentals. It now includes the ability to check pending sales and rentals as well as closed sales and rentals. That is a great information to have when trying to access the current activity within the building. For those unfamiliar with Marinablue, we also added a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to answer any questions that you might have regarding Marinablue and/or the process to buy, sell, or rent a condo there. Another enhancement that was made was to our property search. You now have the ability to filter listings by flooring type, number of parking spaces, and whether the property comes furnished or unfurnished. You will also find that each and every property listing includes a floor plan. A “VIEW FLOOR PLAN” button can be found on each property listing page. That feature should be a big time saver for people. Finally, if you are in the market to sell or rent your condo, look no further. It would be a pleasure to assist you. Be sure to contact me, Lucas Lechuga. Not only am I a Marinablue condo specialist, I am also a resident of the building. I may be reached on my cell phone at 786-247-6332 or via email at lucas@miamicondoinvestments.com.

Marina Blue unit 3008

Unit 3008 at Marina Blue closed last week on July 28, 2010 for $445,000, or $334 per square foot.  The 2 bedroom/2.5 bath condo has 1,334 square feet of interior, 9-foot ceilings and came with marble flooring throughout.  The 08 line at Marina Blue offers panoramic views of Biscayne Bay and Downtown Miami and is considered the premier line in the building.  Unit 3008 was sold as a short sale and remained on the market for 108 days.  In my opinion, the buyer got a fabulous deal on this Downtown Miami condo.
