Previews Home and Monopoly

In 1934, Previews celebrated their one year anniversary in spite of the times and what was going on in the United States. At the same time, Monopoly was becoming a popular household game played by many people dreaming of owning real estate and being a savvy investor. Through playing many Monopoly games, we were able to test our skills as a real estate investor.

A home that sold in 1934 such as Brichell Avenue in Miami would have sold for $125,000. Today that 3 acre parcel with bay views, would sell for 19.6 million dollars.

How many Monopoly games have you played over the years? Are you ready to be a real estate investor? I can help you with your dreams. I have savvy lenders and work with a dynamite team at Coldwell Banker that understands your needs and can find the right property for your real estate portfolio.
