coral gables: Foreclosures (REOs) in Coral Gables, are there any? - 07/25/09 09:34 AM
People always ask us if there are any foreclosures in Coral Gables.  Sellers want to know if their property values are protected and buyers want to know if there are deals to be had in one of Miami-Dade's most prestigious addresses.  Yes, but they come on the market infrequently and the competition is fierce.

coral gables: Foreclosure? When is the Best Time to See an Attorney? - 07/23/09 12:11 AM
