“The three most important factors in architecture are space, structure, and scale." – Eduardo Fernando Catalano (1917-2010), Argentinian-born architect who practised in North Carolina
MODERN HOMES FOR SALE
While South Florida experiences a slow residential real estate market due to the Corona pandemic, as of mid-May there are over 450 modern homes for sale in between Stuart and Miami – from mid-century modern to contemporary modern to luxury waterfront. We are in a buyers' market, but with very limited inventory: mid-century modern and modern architecture makes up less then three percent of the 18,000+ local single family homes for sale.
Prices range from approx. $450,000 – for homes with 'modern bones' that often need de-cluttering, substantial remodeling and/or removal of period-incorrect details – to $32 million for ultra-luxury beachfront houses newly or recently built.
Below please find a constantly rotating selection of interesting modern homes for sale.

Under contract/pending sale: property is in contract, but has not closed yet. If contract falls through, home will become available again. Until that time, showings are not possible.
Back-up Offer: like a above, but accepting "waiting list" offers. If the contract falls through, the seller can pick from the back-up offers already on the table, instead of starting from scratch. In such cases, offers with the least contingencies, especially those with no financing clauses, have the best chances. Showings are possible.
Short Sale: property will be sold for less than face value of the mortgage. The owner is the seller, but the lender has to agree to the contract. Short Sales typically now sell above asking.
