thank you for your inquiry.
Bay or water view units are, in general, in higher demand than street view or garden view units. I am currently working with a buyer who will only consider bay view units. It is difficult to put an exact price/added vaule on a unit with water view. There are many factors that influence a sale price, such as size, upgrades, location, general condition of the unit, number of parking spaces, amenities, age of the building and many more. It is advisable to check for recent sales in the building and examine also the terms and conditions of the sale.

Compared to 2009 a waterfront view in Coconut Grove comes with a much higher price tag! It depends on the building, amenities and finishes of course.

Just as Manon put it, it is extremely difficult to place an exact value for the view of the Bay. Certainly value is added! From my experience the added value could be anywhere from 10%-30% over a SIMILAR size and type with an inferior exposure. Many variables come into the picture; High or Low Floor, General Demand, Market Conditions, Location, Etc.
