The highest priced short sale for sale in Wellington right now is listed at $1,649,000 and that is for a 4 bedroom house in Palm Beach Point on Sea Mist with 6 stalls and a tack room with air conditioning along with a feed room. This home sits on about 5 acres of land. 

The lowest priced home in Wellington right now that is a short sale is a little 2 bedroom townhome listed at $64,900. This is a great location for a groom or sole horse rider looking for a small place to stay while in Wellington during the Winter Equestrian Festival held each year at the world famous Palm Beach International Equestrian Center located in Wellington Florida. 

There are 28 homes for sale in Wellington Florida listed as short sales that are between the prices of $200,000 and $400,000. 

In most communities in Wellington it is becoming a sellers’ market. This means that prices are starting to inch up. One thing is for sure, in the price ranges under $400,000 you are going to need a good Wellington short sale agent brokerage to help you win the bid on your next home. There are certainly bidding wars starting on many of the listings. The last listing one of our agents put an offer in on, we were told that the listing agent had 6 other offers for the same listing. 

So no matter what price range you are in you will be able to find the perfect home for full time residency or for the equestrian season. 

You won’t know that the market has hit the bottom until you see it in your rear view mirror.

Miami Association of Realtors® is our favorite board of realtors®. Miami Association of Realtors® combined with some boards in Ft Lauderdale, Broward county and areas of Miami/Dade county. There used to be so many boards to join in South Florida that it was actually cost prohibitive to do business in the Miami metro areas and Broward county because you would have to belong to so many different boards if you had agents in many markets. 

The smartest thing that Miami Association of Realtors® did was merging and becoming the power board they are now. There is power in numbers.

When you are looking for a Wellington horse farm there are a lot of different locations and listings that you can view. The listing agent is of course going to put the farm’s best feature front and center of their marketing. Remember that the listing agent has a relationship with the Wellington farm owner. 

In Florida it is presumed by law that all Wellington Equestrian Real Estate Brokers are transaction brokers.  This is not the same as fiduciary which is what you may be used where you are living now. Being that the listing agent most likely is a transaction broker may lead you to think that you may get a better deal if you work directly with the listing agent on an offer for a Wellington Equestrian property. 

This is not usually the case. There is no cost for you to use the services of a Wellington Equestrian Buyer Representative. We will help you to see the different properties that are available for sale no matter who the Wellington Farm is listed with. This way you are not being pushed into buying the listing agent’s listings in Wellington. You get a better feel for all the inventory on the market in Wellington and then you can see which horse farm in Wellington is going to be best for your horses and grooms. 

Nestor Gasset is an Accredited Buyers Representative that works with Wellington Equestrian properties.

We just found a wonderful dressage couple from Canada a great farm that was perfect for their dressage horses. It has the right turn out and paddocks for their horses and it also is located in a farm area that fits the needs of our buyers. The sand ring has mirrors as a back drop so dressage trainers can come right to the farm and have all the correct elements. 

The home is also perfect and the equestrian farm has a full time farm manager. This is very important to seasonal people who bring their horses here for the winter equestrian festivals and dressage events and training each winter and then go back up north for the summers. 

We understand and know equestrian needs and we know the equestrian inventory here in Wellington Florida and Loxahatchee Florida. Now is a great time to buy your Wellington horse farm. 

Contact Nestor Gasset on his cell phone at 561-541-9936 to make an appointment to tour the Wellington farms that are available for sale this winter season. 

The Golden Market- Miami- South Florida- Market Report

The Golden Market- Miami- South Florida- Market Report

2011 was a great year for real estate in South Florida- especially in Miami.  So if you have been sitting on the fence waiting to buy that perfect Miami oceanfront condo you may just have sat a wee bit too long:). 

2011 far exceeded all expectations of the turnaround in the market in Miami. This was fueled in large part by our amazing international and foreign buyers who are flocking to Miami and South Florida including to Wellington Florida to buy property while their money is strong and the American dollar is weak. Brazilians are the number one buyers in South Florida right now. 

South Florida is the TOP market in the nation for foreign home buyers. 

The numbers are in for 2011 and Miami and South Florida outperformed the rest of the nation!  Miami is recovering faster and stronger than ANY OTHER market in the ENTIRE USA!!! We are so excited about this because this is going to be great for the Miami and South Florida economies. 

The absorption rate is down too so don’t count on finding those properties lurking around time on the market because the good investments, the prime real estate in Miami is going, going, gone- fast. 

While much of the nation remains stagnant Miami home sales in 2011 were +26% and so far this year in 2012 just in year to date home sales are up +50%. 

2011 units sold are still being totally tallied but it is projected by the numbers so far that Miami sales in 2011 are going to exceed the number of units sold at the height of the market in Miami in 2005. 

Lifestyle remains the number one attraction to Miami and South Florida with great weather, diversity in culture and record affordability along with great rental returns. 

There is now a limited supply of homes and condos on the market having been absorbed at record pace. There is now  a limited supply and a large demand. 

The inventory in Miami and South Florida has dropped by 40%. We can attest to that because our inventory has dropped also by 40% since 2008 and so has all the top brokers we talk to in our markets here in South Florida. 

In 2011 in Miami, the price of condos increased four months in a row at the end of the year and this trend is going to continue to move upward now. 

Distressed properties- bank-owned properties also known as Miami REOs- are in high demand. They sell seven times faster when they come on the market. There are so few bank-owned properties available now. HUD homes are sold before they are even advertised. As soon as they are in the MLS, they are gone. 

The bank-owned Miami properties are now down to 56% of closed sales. That is down from 73% for condos at the beginning of 2011. That is a super fast take-down! 

Miami and South Florida are global real estate markets and news of our inventory and great lifestyle are now visible around the globe to France, Spain, the United Kingdom, Italy, Russia, India, China and many other countries in Europe and Asia and of course throughout Latin America. 



Nestor Gasset- Katerina Gasset- 2011 Top 4% In Wellington and Palm Beach County Florida

Nestor Gasset- Katerina Gasset- 2011 Top 9% In Wellington and Palm Beach County out of over 5000 real estate agents in Palm Beach County. 

Bragging rights:) and self-promotion going on here with a smile on my face- yes, it is time to toot our own horns here! 

Back in 2007 there were over 10,000 agents in Palm Beach County and that number has dropped by 50%. We embraced short sales since we already knew how to do short sales since the 90’s recession and the 80’s recession. 

More agents were doing short sales in Wellington and Palm Beach County in 2011. We remained in the top closers for our short sale listings. This is because we don’t give in nor do we give up. The last person that just googled to find us put in google: keyword + Aggressive short sale agents and our name popped up for them. You can not be passive and close short sales. You can not be an order taker and close short sales. 

It was exciting to get the email from Ocean Capital Lending announcing our 2011 success being in the top 9% of all the agents in Palm Beach County. The best part about it is that it is a third party validation of our numbers, in other words, I did not do the math, a third party did:) And that is always a good thing!
