Multimillonario tecnológico subastará su mansión en Coral Gables el día de San Valentín

Tras dos años en el mercado, Medina la pondrá en subasta sin precio de reserva.

El multimillonario de tecnología Manuel “Manny” Medina salió de su lujosa mansión en Coral Gables por la que pagó $7 millones en 2013 para vivir en Miami, sin embargo, no ha tenido suerte en venderla, por lo que la pondrá en subasta en pleno día de San Valentín sin un precio de reserva, lo que significa que no hay un precio mínimo de licitación por ella.

Lo que hace extraordinaria a esta propiedad de 14,329 pies cuadrados de seis habitaciones y seis baños, no es su piscina climatizada, su spa con sombra de pérgola, área de parrillada ni su garaje para cinco autos, sino su muelle propio de 100 pies de largo por el que se accede por medio del canal característico de la zona que permiten que las residencias del Gables Estates Club salgan a disfrutar del oceáno Atlántico.

Luxe Miami Community welcomes Auctions House for Real Estate Sales

How many neighborhoods consistently see home sales in excess of $10 million? How many have posted transactions of $44 million and up in the past few years? Not many! For the ultra-rich, some communities stand out, and the internationally known Gables Estates community in Miami, Florida is one of them.

These sky-high prices mean luxurious estate homes are the norm. The 192 homes in the private and gated community are sited on 200 acres on the glistening Biscayne Bay, just 30 minutes from the heart of Miami. Almost all of the parcels have substantial water frontage and unrestricted access to both the Bay and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Due to its proximity to Miami International Airport, the location also provides a perfect base for international travel, especially to Central and South America.

Is Luxury Priceless?

Buying a home in the Gables Estates requires a deep pocketbook, but a recent trend in luxury real estate purchasing is taking hold in exclusive communities: luxury real estate auctions are becoming an increasingly popular way for well-heeled sellers to divest of their unique and distinguished assets in a date-certain manner. Properties priced in excess of $10 million can languish on the market for years before a qualified buyer emerges, and the sit-around-and-wait approach is the antithesis of luxury living.

A New Approach To Luxury Real Estate Sales

So, wealthy sellers turn to luxury auction houses such as Miami-based Platinum Luxury Auctions (who actually own the rights to the term luxury auction®!) to market their homes internationally and sell them – all in six weeks or less. Auctions can seem complicated, but in reality they’re a much simpler, more transparent way to buy luxury real estate – and auction sales (since they are “as-is, where-is” transactions) break down far less than normal real estate negotiations.

A tech entrepreneur has been trying to offload his Florida mansion for 2 years — and now he’s auctioning it off.

A Florida tech entrepreneur is putting his waterfront Coral Gables mansion up for auction after almost two years trying to sell it, Yahoo Finance reported.

It will have no reserve price, or minimum bid, according to Platinum Luxury Auctions, the firm that’s putting on the auction. The tri-level home spans 15,000 square feet and comes with a sauna, pool, and 100-foot boat dock.

The owner, Manuel Medina, sold his Terremark data services company to Verizon in 2011 for $1.4 billion, according to The Real Deal. He also founded private equity firm Medina Capital, as well as cyber security firm Cyxtera. Florida media refers to Medina as a billionaire, but Business Insider could not independently confirm his net worth.

The live auction will take place on February 14 and the sale is expected to close 30 days later.

Florida tech billionaire to auction off his waterside Coral Gables mansion

Most homes have a driveway. This one has a canal, leading straight to the Atlantic Ocean.

Tech billionaire Manuel Medina has already moved to Miami and out of his lavish Coral Gables mansion he paid $7 million for in 2013, but he hasn’t had luck finding a buyer. So, on February 14, Medina will auction off his waterside mansion in one of Florida’s most exclusive gated communities, without a reserve price — meaning there is no minimum bidding price.

What makes the six-bed, six-bath home truly special is its access to the water with a 100-foot-long dock into a deep concrete-enforced canal providing 180 feet of waterfront, according to Trayor Lesnock, president of Platinum Luxury Auctions, which will auction off the 15,000-square-foot, three-level home.

The yard has a putting green, a resort-style heated pool, a pergola-shaded spa, a main-level courtyard, shaded and unshaded lounge areas, a dining area with grill and a five-car garage.

The sale also registers as the city’s number one all-time price for a home located west of a fixed bridge (a location that limits boating access to Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean).
