The Luxe Team Lists Class A Building in Downtown Melbourne

INDIALANTIC, FL/JULY 2021 – Anthony Romero and James Edmunds, of Dale Sorensen Real Estate’s The Luxe Team, are excited to announce the exclusive listing of a Class A building in Melbourne’s dynamic downtown area.  The 13,765 square foot property, located at 2015 Waverly Place immediately behind Melbourne’s downtown retail center, is listed for $3.5 million.

The building underwent a complete remodel from the studs out in 2016 which included all new electrical, new A/C units, hurricane impact windows & doors, and premium fixtures & finishes throughout. Meticulously designed and cared for by the current tenants, an interior design firm, this building truly reflects a Class-A feel with separate show rooms, kitchen, office space, and warehousing with a loading dock. Situated on .77 acre, this 125′ x 265′ lot spans the entire block offering ingress/egress from Waverly Place and Vernon Place, providing ample parking.

The property is zoned C3, so may be used for a variety of purposes, including commercial, office, residential or mixed-use development.  “This property is centrally located in downtown Melbourne, which makes it perfect for a number of uses,” said James Edmunds, a member of The Luxe Team.  “It can also be levelled and used for future development, although the building has been so beautifully remodeled, I’m not sure anyone would want to do that.  With the perfect location, the flex zoning, great listing price, and the fact that Melbourne’s growth is exploding, I’m sure this property won’t be on the market for long.

Members of The Luxe Team include Anthony Romero, James Edmunds and Logan Rinehart. 

For more information on this property, contact James Edmunds on his cell phone at 321.349.5068, or by email at jedmunds@dsreinc.com.  Contact Anthony Romero on his cell at 3321.917.7450 or by email at aromero@dsreinc.com.  The Luxe Team can also be reached at 321.723.9990 or at their office located at 436 Fifth Avenue, Indialantic, FL 32903.

What Goes Up, Goes Up Further – A Word From Dale Sorensen Real Estate’s London Office

Nick Churton of Dale Sorensen Real Estate’s London office looks to a genius to make  some sense of the current international real estate market and offer  some pointers for the future. 

What Isaac Newton, who formulated the laws of gravity in the middle of the 17th century,  would have made of the current gravity-defying real estate market is anyone’s guess. But, no  doubt, like most people he would have been flummoxed. 

Even a genius like Newton, who worked from home during the plague of 1665/66, would  have had difficulty making any sense of this market. Despite a global killer pandemic, tens of  millions of people out of work, nations in lockdown, travel halted and national treasuries  handing out trillions in support of businesses, jobs and mortgages, the real estate market  booms. It should, by any calculation, have plummeted like an apple from a tree. Instead, the  market didn’t fall; it held itself in suspended animation for a while before surging upwards. 

By any estimation the market should at least have mirrored the slowdown experienced after  the great recession of 2008. But from the Antipodes to the Americas, and from Europe to  the Far East, residential property prices in many countries are soaring. According to the  Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), it’s the fastest year-on-year growth in the past two decades. 

But perhaps we can learn something from Newton, whose third law stated that to every  action there is an equal and opposite reaction. 

Covid made homeowners and homebuyers react by moving from cities and buying larger  homes in less crowded areas where they could work from home. At the same time interest  rate cuts kept mortgage repayments manageable and vaccines have generated confidence. 

It wasn’t long ago that real estate professionals were preparing for the worst. Now the  market, which is experiencing low inventory levels, is seeing increasing values with selling  prices often well exceeding their asking prices. 

Whilst most pandemic market activity has been in domestic markets, the international  market has also been defying gravity. Despite travel restrictions, international buyers have  been buying property sight unseen. Many homebuyers have been re-evaluating their lives or  bringing forward plans to buy an overseas bolthole or permanent home. But this is just the  tip of the iceberg; once travel opens up the signs are that there will be a super-surge of  demand and activity from international buyers. 

Growing numbers of sight-unseen global sales, ultra-competitive bidding on most listings and  incidence of gazumping are all sure signs of a property market in boom mode. But let’s give  Newton the last word in trying to make sense of what is going on. He said, “I can calculate  the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people”.
