Greater Downtown Miami Luxury Condo Market Report Q3 2022

View the most up-to-date market reports.


With signs of a slowdown first emerging in Miami's beach neighborhoods during the 
second-quarter, this urban core grouping followed suit with a slowdown in Q3 2022. Considering the third-quarter is generally the slowest of the year (as confirmed by historical data) and that the luxury condo market had been reporting record sales since Q4 2020, it was inevitable for the market to pause and catch its breath.

In Q3 2022, when looking at the Greater Downtown Miami neighborhood grouping, Brickell emerged as the strongest sub-market, posting the least negative impact on year-over-year sales trends. It was also the fastest-selling market for luxury condos in Q3 2022. The waterfront Edgewater neighborhood remained the most expensive sub-market in the Greater Downtown area - reporting a median Price/SF of $867, while Downtown Miami was the most affordable overall.

Overall, in Greater Downtown Miami, the market remained healthy as prices increased, days on market kept to their lowest, and inventory hovered stable year-over-year - keeping this urban core a balanced market for buyers and sellers, in an otherwise seller-friendly luxury condo market for Miami.

Quick summary of Q3 2022 for the Greater Downtown Miami area includes:

  • Brickell had the highest sales volume (72 sales)
  • Brickell showed the least negative impact on YoY sales growth (-22%)

Q3 2022 - Greater Downtown Miami Luxury Condo Market Trends: Sales Down YoY

Q3 2022 Sales down -31.6% - Negative Trendline. 

As predicted in our Q2 2022 luxury condo market report for Greater Downtown Miami, Q3 2022 reported lower year-over-year sales owing to a seasonal slowdown (as per historical analysis). Breaking its record-setting streak since Q4 2020, it was quite expected of the market to pause and catch its breath.

Consistent with the slower pace of the overall Miami market, Greater Downtown Miami reported the following Sales Trends for Q3 2022:

  • Q3 2022 vs Q3 2021. Sales declined 31.6% year-over-year, down from 155 in Q3 2021 to 106 sales for the same quarter of 2022. (Fig.1)
  • Q3 2022 vs Q2 2021. Sales dropped 54.5% quarter-over-quarter, down from 233 in Q2 to 106 sales in Q3 this year. (Fig. 1.1)

It is worth nothing that even though sales may have drastically declined compared to the previous year's record-setting high, Q3 2022 volume was higher than any third-quarter noted in 2020 or from before. This indicates that the luxury condo market maintained its growth threshold set over the past two years, even as sales took a seasonal breather.

  • Brickell had the highest sales volume (72 sales). This core financial district also took over as the most resilient market in the Greater Downtown area, posting only a 22% decline in year-over-year sales.

Looking into the Monthly Sales trends of Fig. 2.2, July reported 30 sales (compared to 65 in 2021), August reported 44 sales (against 51 in 2021), and September posted 32 sales (compared to 39 in the previous year).

As real estate experts, we expect the luxury condo market to close 2022 on a soft note, considering the market usually picks up momentum only after December's Art Basel or by mid-January.

With momentum slowing way down, the 12-month Sales Trendline of Fig. 2.3 expectedly took on a negative trajectory in Q3 2022 – breaking its positive streak that had continued from Q4 2020 up to Q2 2022.

  • A look at the 5-year quarterly price per square foot chart in Fig. 3 below reveals that Q3 prices closed in the Higher Ranges – indicating that sellers continued receiving great value for their luxury condo investments in this mainland grouping.
  • Median Sales Price stayed almost flat, declining marginally by -1.3% - slightly down from $1,350,000 in Q3 last year to $1,332,500 in the comparable quarter of 2022. (Fig. 1)

34.9% decline in year-over-year Days on Market. Partly deviating from the overall market trend of a decline in year-over-year numbers but increase in quarter-over-quarter Days on Market, Greater Downtown Miami reported the following values.

In Q3 2022, luxury condos spent 30 fewer days on the market compared to Q3 last year but the same number of days compared to the previous quarter (Fig. 4). With values still at an all-time low, this shows buyer-seller communication stayed at its best in the mainland.

Q3 2022 - Condo Inventory Flat YoY in Greater Downtown Miami - Moving to Balanced Market

Q3 2022 closed with 10 months of Inventory. Partly deviating from the overall market trend of higher year-over-year values, inventory in Greater Downtown Miami stayed flat year-over-year. At 10 months, inventory fell within the 9-12 months benchmark of an ideal market – indicating that even though the Miami market might be seller-dominated, the urban core presented a level playing field to buyers and sellers.

  • On a quarter-over-quarter basis, inventory was down 25% from 8 months in June 2022. 
  • On a year-over-year basis, inventory stayed flat at 10 months between September of 2021 and 2022.

Q3 2022 - Brickell Luxury Condo Sales Down YoY – Most Resilient Market in Miami Overall

Q3 Sales down -21.7% year-over-year – Negative trendline. Historically leading the overall luxury condo market in Miami in terms of sales progression, Brickell reported the least negative impact on year-over-year sales volume of all Miami neighborhoods under our review in Q3 2022:

  • Q3 2022 vs Q3 2021. Sales declined 21.7% year-over-year, down from 92 in Q3 last year to 72 sales in Q3 2022. (Fig. 11)
  • Negative year-over-year sales trend in sync with the slowdown noted in Miami overall.
  • Third-quarter volume at highest compared to the same quarter of 2020 and before (Fig. 12.1) – indicating the market may have lost steam seasonally but kept to its momentum gathered over the past two years.
  • Brickell again reported the highest sales volume out of all Greater Downtown Miami neighborhoods under review.

Expectedly, the 12-month Sales Trendline of Fig. 12.2 dipped into a negative trajectory for the first time in 7 quarters.

Q3 2022 - Brickell Price per Square Foot Up YoY
 

Q3 Price per Square Foot up 8.6% at previous peak of $830, Median Price down -2.1% year-over-year. Price trends in Brickell followed the overall market trend of higher year-over-year price per square foot and a lower median price:

  • Price per Square Foot increased by 8.6%, up from $764 in Q3 2021 to previous peak of $830 in Q3 this year. (Fig. 11)
  • With Price per Square Foot adjusting only by a dollar quarter-over-quarter, values hovered at $830 - a peak attained in the previous quarter - indicating sellers continued receiving the best value-to-date for their luxury condos in this financial district. (Fig. 13)
  • Median Sales Price declined by -2.1%, down from $1,361,485 in Q3 2021 to $1,332,500 in Q3 this year. (Fig. 11)
  • This inconsistency in year-over-year Price per Square Foot and Sales Price trends could likely be explained by sales of smaller-sized condos ruling the quarter. Amenity-rich, smaller condos tend to fetch a higher price per square foot.

Q3 2022 Greater Downtown Miami Market Conclusion

As predicted in our Q2 2022 luxury condo market report for Greater Downtown Miami, this urban core took a seasonal break from posting record sales since Q4 2020. Sales cooled off across the board with a negative trendline, much like the overall Miami market trend – except in Downtown Miami, which posted a positive trendline owing to a record-breaking Q1 and Q2 in 2022.

Brickell emerged as the most popular neighborhood in the Greater Downtown area, reporting the highest volume (72 sales) of all 3 sub-markets and lowest percentage loss in year-over-year sales (-22%). Brickell also emerged as the strongest sub-market in Miami overall, with its least negative impact on year-over-year sales growth.

Deviating slightly from the overall market trend in Q3 2022 of higher Price per Square Foot and lower year-over-year Sales Price, prices mostly increased in Greater Downtown Miami. Sellers in Edgewater continued receiving maximum value for their investments, as luxury condos in the area fetched top-dollar - closing Q3 at a price of $867/square foot as well as the highest year-over-year price gains by reporting a 17% increase.

Echoing the overall market trend, the Days on Market declined year-over-year for luxury condos across Greater Downtown. Brickell remained the fastest-selling market, with properties spending only 50 days on the market (on median) before closing as sold.

Again, slightly deviating from the overall Miami market trend of higher year-over-year inventory, the trend remained flat in Greater Downtown. At 10 months, this core grouping leaned towards becoming a balanced market, as opposed to the seller-friendly trend noted in the overall Miami market.

Considering the last quarter of the year is also slow-paced (as per historical data), we, as luxury real estate experts, expect to see the market cool-off further before picking up pace after mid-January. Additionally, we expect the following to influence the direction of the luxury condos market in Miami during the closing quarter of 2022:

  • Recent business migration trends coupled with South Florida's tax-saving policies will likely continue attracting high-net-worth buyers and well-paid employees.
  • Higher interest rates might discourage only a few sellers who may have locked in lower mortgage rates or refinanced at a more lucrative rate, considering the luxury condo market usually operates on cash.
  • With travel picking up, we expect South American and other foreign buyers to offset any setbacks in demand from a weakening Euro, considering our foreign buyer statistics are dominated by Latin American (39%) and Canadian (25%) clientele.
  • With brands like EditionNoMadThe Standard, and Diesel building luxury condos in the urban core with more short-term rental flexibility and a shorter commute to work, we expect Greater Downtown to stay in the spotlight for buyers and investors alike.
  • As mentioned in previous reports, even as developers continue buying out older condo buildings to build fresh luxury, we expect the market to operate with low levels of inventory until such product is built (2-3 years) – keeping the market seller-friendly or balanced at max. for the next few cycles.
