Overall, REDC conducted a combination of live and online auctions over the weekend that generated $48 million in sales.

The San Lorenzo Condominiums feature an ideal blend of location, views and amenities. The redevelopment of downtown Miami as an urban icon is redefining the future of the city itself, and reviving the lifestyle of the vibrant South Florida community. Thousands of families, young couples, and professionals are moving to the area as part of the most dramatic transformation ever seen in Miami. Projects like the Center for Performing Arts, the Midtown Mall, and the new Florida Marlins baseball stadium are giving downtown Miami and Little Havana a complete makeover, making it one of the most ideal places to live in the country.
“The sellers were very motivated to sell these properties and get them back in the hands of home buyers,” Frieden says. “That's the case at all our auctions. Auctions are the only way to buy real estate where the pricing starts at the bottom and works its way up. Auctions are also the only buying alternative where you can set your own price. That’s why we continue to see amazing deals at our auctions, one after another.”
