Luxury SoCal Estate Listed for $65M Is Headed for Auction With No Reserve

Hold your horses! One of Southern California’s most luxurious estates is headed for the auction block with no reserve price, but that doesn’t mean a bidder will walk away with the place for pocket change.

This high-end spread near Montecito, CA, currently sits on the market for $65 million. An auction set to take place next month will determine the home’s true value—the no-reserve auction means that the home will sell, regardless of price.

Theoretically, the auction could bring out bargain hunters interested in scoring a grand mansion for pennies on the dollar.

But the auction process won’t exactly be a free-for-all: There is a significant barrier to entry. Potential owners will need to pony up $100,000 just for the privilege of bidding.

So what makes this estate so extraordinary?

For starters, it has its own world-renowned polo grounds. An owner can simply sit on the terrace and watch the

Luxury Single-Family Home Sales Jump in South Florida

Big-spending home buyers across some of South Florida’s most major markets are propelling the area’s surging real estate market, according to the latest report released Thursday by the Miami Association of Realtors.

The number of homes that sold across Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Broward counties jumped by double digits in September compared to the same time last year, but it was buyers at the top end, buying homes priced at $1 million or more, who were really out in force last month.


As is the case nationwide—in markets from Los Angeles to the Hamptons in New York—a feverish demand for single-family homes has emerged from the coronavirus pandemic as buyers, who in many cases have been spending more time at home than ever, seek more space and less dense locales.

In Miami, luxury single-family home transactions jumped 76.7% year-over-year to 159 sales in September, while existing luxury condo sales increased

Shipton said there will be rental options with long- and short-term leases.

“We also think this creates a very nice path to purchase, in particular, for young professionals,” he said. “You rent here in Sky Signature Suites, you get climatized to the lifestyle and then you can transition into a condo later on.”

Stantec residents will also have access to the amenities at the neighbouring JW Marriott, a rooftop terrace, an infrared sauna, a fitness facility and a golf simulator.

Manhattan’s Luxury Condo Market Sees Distress Opportunities

125 Greenwich Street (Photos by Sylvia Varnham O’Regan)

A partially built condominium in Manhattan’s Financial District cuts a melancholy figure on an overcast Saturday in August. The front of the building, an exposed checkerboard of unfinished apartments, stretches 912 feet upward into a fog of gray cloud. Two security guards mill about on the deserted pavement opposite.

Construction at 125 Greenwich Street has been stalled for months, and the developers, a group that includes Davide Bizzi’s Bizzi & Partners and Howard Lorber’s New Valley, are on a mission to see it over the finish line.

That may be tricky: The project is deep in debt, and two foreclosure actions filed before the pandemic hang over it. Sales were expected to begin closing by June 30. When that didn’t happen, Michael Feldman of Romer Debbas said, four of his clients who had bought units in the building took the developers up

Downtown Condos Lead Manhattan’s Luxury Real Estate Deals, Again

For the second week in a row, 14 high-end contracts were signed last week in Manhattan, according to Olshan Realty. That’s five fewer than the same week last year.

In the 31 weeks since mid-March, when Covid-19 began spreading in New York, downtown properties have been the priciest sales of the week 17 times. And most of these properties were bought by local buyers “betting on the home team,” according to Donna Olshan, president of Olshan Realty and author of the report released Monday.

The make-up of last week’s homes was nine condos, two townhouses and three co-ops.
