More Estates Hitting the Market
The most interesting thing to note is that while a couple of these homes stayed on the market for a bit of time and others sold a little quicker, more estates are hitting the market with much higher list prices.  Coral Gables real estate is filled with gorgeous gated neighborhoods that are home to many beautiful estates and tons of opportunities to buy there.

  1. Who wouldn't want to have any of these homes? Everything is so luxurious looking and very appealing much like these portland or downtown apartments.
