Q1 2022 Sales up 50% - Highest-ever in a 1st Quarter - Negative Trendline. 

Opening 2022 with the highest sales in a first quarter, the otherwise modest luxury condo market of Coral Gables and Coconut Grove showed incredible growth. First quarter sales echoed and contributed to the positive trend noted in the overall Miami market report for Q1 2022 as below:

  • Q1 2022 vs Q1 2021. Sales increased 50% year-over-year, up from 40 sales in Q1 2021 to 60 for the same quarter 2022. (Fig. 1)
  • The Monthly Sales Chart of Fig. 2.2. shows how sales started soft in January but peaked by quarter-end in March – reporting the best March for luxury condos in over 7 years of our reporting (and before, anecdotally).
  • In a month-on-month comparison, January 2022 reported 12 sales compared to 4 in January last year. February this year posted 21 sales against 13 from February 2021. And, March reported 27 sales compared to 23 for the same month last year. (Fig 2.2)
  • Considering the second quarter of the year is usually the strongest (as per historical data) and sales peaked in March, we, as luxury condo experts expect, luxury condos in the collective neighborhood of Coral Gables and Coconut Grove to report strong numbers for Q2 2022, if not touch the previous year's record-high.

Even with sales opening the first quarter with great momentum, the 12-month Sales Trendline of Fig. 2.3 shifted downwards from a positive curve in Q4 2021 to take on a negative trajectory in Q1 2022. Although this would generally indicate an upcoming cool down, considering the current pace of the market, we expect Q2 2022 to keep strong.

Luxury Condo Prices Up YoY - Price per Square Foot at Peak High

Q1 2022 Price/Square Foot up 23.2% to new peak of $819, Median Price also up 20.7% year-over-year. Consistent with the overall market trend of higher year-over-year prices in Q1, the combined neighborhood of Coral Gables and Coconut Grove too reported increases. As Q1 closed with the highest Price per Square Foot in over 6 years (Fig. 3), sellers received excellent value for their luxury condo investments in the historic neighborhood pairing.

  • Price per Square Foot increased by 23.2%, up from $665 in Q1 2021 to a peak of $819 in Q1 this year.
  • Median Sales Price increased by 20.7%, up from $1,512,500 in Q1 2021 to $1,824,995 for the same quarter 2022. (Fig. 1)
  • Price/Square Foot has been on the rise since Q3 2020 – consistently offering luxury condo sellers a great return on investment year after year. (Fig. 3)
  • With constant improvements in price, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove is no longer the most cost effective (read cheapest) market for luxury condo buyers to step into in Miami. Downtown Miami priced at $716/Sq. Ft. makes the lowest entry point.

Days on Market Down YoY, but Up QoQ

12% decline in year-over-year Days on Market. Partly deviating from the overall Miami luxury condo market trend of reducing Days on Market, this neighborhood pairing reported a decline in year-over-year numbers, but increase in quarter-over-quarter days on market.

In Q1 2022, luxury condos spent 9 fewer days on the market compared to Q1 last year, but 24 extra days compared to Q4 2021 (Fig. 4). This sudden increase could be due to older (paused) listings making their way back on the market as sellers found more confidence in price appreciation. Anecdotally, properties have been moving rather quickly off the market.

Inventory Down to Second-Lowest in Miami – Sellers' Market Strengthens

Q1 2022 closed with 5 months of Inventory. Consistent with the overall market trend in Miami, inventory in the beautiful neighborhoods of Coral Gables and Coconut Grove too dropped. At 5 months, inventory fell below the 9-12 months range of an ideal market, showing that sellers had complete control of prices and negotiations as demand far exceeded supply.

On a quarter-over-quarter basis, inventory stayed flat at 5 months, the same as in December 2021.

On a year-over-year basis, inventory was down 58.3% from 12 months in March 2021.

With the second-lowest levels of inventory of all Miami neighborhoods under our review, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove remained a dynamic market for sellers. While sellers continued receiving multiple, highly competitive offers on their properties, buyers had to keep a flexible budget to secure the property of their choice.

As real estate experts, we recommend sellers looking to move out of town or turning a profit on their investment properties to consider selling now to make the most of this highly favorable market. Those looking to buy a luxury home in these beautiful, lush tropical neighborhoods can search Coral Gables or Coconut Grove condos for sale here.

Q1 2022 Coral Gables & Coconut Grove Luxury Condo Market Conclusion

Keeping a tight seller's market, most trends in the collective neighborhood of Coral Gables & Coconut Grove resonated with the overall market trends noted for Q1 2022 in Miami. Just like the overall market, this combined neighborhood posted its strongest first quarter in over 7 years of us reporting. The 12-month Sales Trendline too dropped to a negative, much like the overall market, capturing a bit of a slack. However, considering the general pace of the market and personal observations, we, as luxury real estate experts, expect Q2 2022 to post robust numbers, if not new record highs.

On the price front, the Price per Square Foot for this grouping posted year-over-year gains, like the overall market. At $819/Sq. Ft., prices were at their peak, giving sellers the best value yet for their luxury condos in the neighborhood.

Almost in line with the overall Miami trend of lower Days on Market, Coral Gables & Coconut Grove too reported a decline in year-over-year numbers, but an increase in quarter-over-quarter days. Still, with luxury condos spending 63 days on the market (on median), the market is moving fairly quickly in this historic grouping.

As expected, in terms of inventory, Coral Gables & Coconut Grove collectively reported one of the lowest levels of inventory in all of Miami in Q1 2022, just behind Fisher Island (3 months). With numbers falling below the 9-12-month range of a balanced market, we saw the seller's market strengthening its hold on this collective neighborhood.

In addition to the second quarter generally being the strongest, we as luxury real estate experts, expect the following to influence the direction of the luxury condo market in Coral Gables & Coconut Grove going into 2022:

  • We expect a new set of buyers to land in Miami given our crypto-friendly policies and overall warm reception of crypto lovers at the Bitcoin 2022 Conference held in Wynwood.
  • We expect more high net worth buyers and businesses looking for tax savings to be drawn to our pro-business/no-income-tax climate.
  • We expect more remote workers to set up their home office next to a marina, the water, or a historical park in the beautiful Coral Gables or Coconut Grove to enjoy year-long great weather and events.
  • We expect more South American and other foreign buyers to explore housing and investment options in Miami, especially with brands like Cipriani building new, more alluring luxury condos here.
  • We expect the market to stay seller-friendly, as inventory levels stay low with fewer new construction deliveries scheduled in the immediate future.
