Record Sales Year, Downtown & Brickell Led 2022 Market Growth

Reporting its biggest year of sales yet, the Greater Downtown Miami area remained the neighborhood of choice for luxury condo buyers throughout 2022. Downtown Miami and Brickell continued to be the most popular neighborhoods in all of Miami, leading sales growth in Q4 2022, as well as on an annual basis - outperforming the traditionally popular beach neighborhoods.

Compared to the overall Miami annual market trends noted in 2022, Greater Downtown Miami reported stronger sales across the board. Prices in the area also ended the year on a high note, with pricing statistics showing that favorable market conditions and the construction of new, more luxurious condominiums could keep prices stable or even push them higher in the next 2-3 years.

Even with sales slowing down over the last two quarter, the Days on Market values declined consistently in Greater Downtown Miami – showing great buyer-seller communication. The Months of Inventory may have spiked over the last quarter of the year, but we, as real estate experts, expect the statistical trend to correct during high season 2023.

A quick summary of Q4 2022 for the Greater Downtown Miami area includes:

  • Brickell had the most sales volume (52 sales)
  • Downtown Miami had the greatest sales growth YoY (22%)
  • Edgewater posted the highest median sales price ($1.5 million)
  • Edgewater posted the highest price per square foot ($942)

— Greater Downtown Miami Luxury Condo Market Trends: Annual Sales Up, 4Q Down


Q4 Sales down 33.1% year-over-year. Highest-ever of a pre-pandemic 4Q.

Following and contributing to the sales trend seen in the overall Miami report for Q4 2022, the Greater Downtown Miami area posted a decline in year-over-year sales but with a bright side (Fig. 2.1):

  • Q4 2022 sales volumes were higher than any previous fourth quarter noted pre-pandemic (years 2020 and prior)
  • Q4 2022 vs Q4 2021. Sales declined -33.1% year-over-year, down from 133 in Q4 2021 to 89 for the same quarter 2022. (Fig. 1.1)
  • Brickell was the highest contributor in terms of volume (52 sales), while Downtown Miami was the highest percentage contributor (22% YoY) to the sales growth seen in Greater Downtown.
  • Q4 2022 vs Q3 2022. Sales decreased -16.8% quarter-over-quarter, down from 107 in the previous quarter to 89 in Q4 2022. (Fig. 1)
  • Even with a seasonal slowdown (as per historical data, sales are known to be cyclical in Miami – peaking around Q2 and slowing down over Q3 & Q4) plus talks of a national housing cooldown, this urban core closed the year on a relatively positive note.


Annual Sales up 24.1% - Biggest sales year ever - Negative trendline

While Miami's more traditionally popular market, the beaches, posted a decline in 2022-over-2021 annual sales, heavily influencing the overall market trend, Miami's urban core enjoyed consistent sales growth:

  • 2022 vs 2021. Sales increased 24.1%, up from 519 annual sales in record-setting year like 2021 to 644 in 2022. (Fig. 1a)
  • Posting its biggest sales year yet, Greater Downtown Miami also reported higher annual sales compared to 2020 (108 total sales), 2019 (122 total sales), 2018 (110 total sales), and before. (Fig. 2.1)

With the market cooling further before heading into high season of 2023 (summer is usually Miami's peak season as per historical data), the 12-month Sales Trendline of Fig. 2.3 expectedly stayed negative between Q3 and Q4 2022.

— Greater Downtown Miami Luxury Condo Price Trends: Mixed


Annual $/Square Foot up to $825, Median Sales Price flat

Consistent with the overall market trend of higher 2022-over-2021 price per square foot and flat Median Price, luxury condos in Greater Downtown Miami reported the following annual trends (Fig. 1.a):

  • Price per Square Foot increased 11.1%, up from $743 in 2021 to $825 in 2022.
  • Median Sales Price stayed mostly flat, reporting a marginal adjustment of 0.7%, up from $1,390,000 in 2021 to $1,399,000 in 2022.


Q4 2022 Price/Square Foot up 9.5% to peak at $839, Median Sales Price down year-over-year

Echoing the overall market trend of higher year-over-year price per square foot and lower Median Price, this mainland grouping reported the following quarterly trends (Fig. 1.1):

  • Q4 2022 vs Q4 2021. Price per Square Foot increased by 9.5%, up from $766 in Q4 2021 to $839 in Q4 this year.
    • Closing the year with the highest Price per Square Foot ever (Fig. 3), sellers received excellent value for their luxury condos in Greater Downtown Miami.
    • Median Sales Price decreased 3.6%, down from $1,400,000 in Q4 2021 to $1,350,000 in the same quarter 2022.
    • This difference in Price per Square Foot and Median Sales Price trends could possibly be due to sales of smaller luxury condos exceeding sales of bigger units in the fourth quarter. Such smaller-sized condos tend to pack in more amenities, for which they command a higher price per square foot even as the median price declines.
  • Q4 2022 vs Q3 2022. Price per Square Foot mostly flat, reporting an adjustment of 1.2%, slightly up from $828 in the previous quarter to $839 in Q4 2022.
    • Median Sales Price too stayed mostly flat, reporting an adjustment of 1.5%, slightly up from $1,330,000 in the previous quarter to $1,350,000 in Q4 2022. (Fig. 1)

— Greater Downtown Miami: Days on Market Down Annually + YoY 


Days on Market down 29.2% on annual basis and 13.4% 4Q22-over-4Q21

Owing to positive market momentum in this urban core, the Days on Market (DOM) reduced as expected, as well as in line with the overall Miami luxury condo market trend:

  • 2022 vs 2021. Days on Market declined 29.2%, with luxury condos spending 26 fewer days on the market compared to 2021. (Fig. 1a)
  • Q4 2022 vs Q4 2021. Days on Market declined 13.4%, indicating luxury condos spent 9 fewer days on market compared to a year-ago - closing 2022 with one of the lowest DOM in over 5 years (Fig. 4).

— Greater Downtown Miami: Luxury Condo Inventory Up – Moving to Balanced Market


Q4 2022 closes with 17 months of Inventory

With inventory touching new lows throughout 2022, it was quite expected to see a bit of an uptick, as the last two quarters of 2022 slowed down after experiencing about 8 quarters of frenzied sales. Closing the year with 17 months of inventory, the trend closed above the 9-12-month range of an ideal market, suggesting a shift into a buyer's market – in theory.

Considering peak season is just around the corner, as mentioned earlier in this report, we, as real estate experts, are expecting this excessive inventory situation to quickly correct itself, settling into a more balanced mood heading into 2023:

  • On an annual basis, inventory was up from 11 months in December last year to 17 months by year-end 2022 – an uptick of 54.5%. (Fig. 5)
  • On a quarter-over-quarter basis, inventory increased from 10 months in September 2022 to 17 months in December – again posting an uptick of 70%.

Those interested in buying into Miami's urban core can search the Greater Downtown Miami area for available condos for sale.

— Brickell Luxury Condo Sales Up Annually + Down 4Q 2022 – 2nd-highest Annual Sales Growth in Miami Overall


Q4 Sales down -40.9% year-over-year – Highest in a 4th quarter (2020 & prior)

In line with the overall Miami market trend for Q4 2022, Brickell saw a decline in year-over-year sales, but with an upside:

  • Q4 2022 vs Q4 2021. Sales declined -40.9% year-over-year, down from 88 in Q4 a year-ago to 52 in the same quarter 2022. (Fig. 11.1)
  • However, Q4 2022 sales were higher compared to any previous fourth quarter recorded pre-pandemic (2020 and before). (Fig. 12.1)
  • Q4 2022 vs Q3 2022. Sales decreased -28.8% quarter-over-quarter, down from 73 in Q3 2022 to 52 in Q4 2022. (Fig. 11)


Annual Sales up 24.6% - Highest-ever annual sales - Negative trendline

Even with a seasonal slowdown setting in during the last two quarters, Brickell reported remarkable sales growth in 2022. In contrast to the overall Miami market trend for lower year-over-year annual sales, Brickell reported:

  • 2022 vs 2021. Sales increased 24.6%, up from 313 annual sales in the record-setting year of 2021 to an outstanding 390 sales in 2022. (Fig. 11a)
  • Trailing right behind Downtown Miami (27%), Brickell reported the second-highest percentage sales growth of all the Miami neighborhoods under our review in 2022.
  • Brickell outperformed all previous years on record by posting its highest annual sales ever – 2021 (313 annual sales), 2020 (63 annual sales), 2019 (85 annual sales), 2018 (68 annual sales), and before. (Fig. 12.1)


Brickell Luxury Condo Quarterly Sales 2015 - 2022 - Fig. 12.1

Brickell Luxury Condo Quarterly Sales 2015 - 2022 - Fig. 12.1


Owing to an expectedly slower-paced second half (as Miami's luxury condo market is cyclical in nature), the 12-month Sales Trendline of Fig. 12.2 stayed negative between Q3 and Q4 2022.

— Brickell Luxury Condo Price Trends: Mixed Annually + Q4 2022


Annual Price/Square Foot up 10% to $824, Median Sales Price down

Partly in line with the overall market trend of higher year-over-year annual price per square foot and flat Median Price, luxury condos in Brickell reported the following trends (Fig. 11a):

  • Price per Square Foot increased 10%, up from $749 in 2021 to $824 in 2022.
  • Median Sales Price decreased -3.3%, down from $1,425,000 in 2021 to $1,377,500 in 2022.

The inconsistency seen in Price per Square Foot and Sales Price trends above could possibly be due to sales of smaller (in size) condos with better amenities dominating the quarter. Such smaller units tend to command a higher price per square foot.


Q4 2022 Price per Square Foot up 6% to $825, Median Sales Price down year-over-year

In line with the overall Miami market trend of higher year-over-year Price per Square Foot and lower Median Price in Q4, Brickell reported the same (Fig. 11.1):

  • Q4 2022 vs Q4 2021. Price per Square Foot increased by 6%, up from $778 in Q4 2021 to $825 in Q4 this year.
    • Looking at the 5-year snapshot of quarterly prices per square foot below (Fig. 13), we found that prices in Brickell closed in the higher ranges for Q4 - giving sellers great value for their luxury condo investments.
    • Median Sales Price decreased 9.8%, down from $1,512,500 in Q4 2021 to $1,365,000 in Q4 2022.
  • Q4 2022 vs Q3 2022. Price per Square Foot mostly flat, with a slight adjustment of -0.6%, marginally down from $830 in Q3 2022 to $825 in Q4 this year. (Fig. 11)
    • Median Sales Price also remained flat, posting an adjustment of 2.6%, slightly up from $1,330,000 in Q3 2022 to $1,365,000 in Q4 2022.

Annual Sales up 26.7% - Highest annual sales ever - Negative trendline

Even though market pace expectedly slowed down over the second half of 2022, Downtown Miami posted impressive sales growth, also leading the overall luxury condo market. Deviating from the overall Miami market trend of lower year-over-year annual sales, Downtown reported the following:

  • 2022 vs 2021. Sales increased 26.7%, up from 75 annual sales in a record-setting year like 2021 to an even more incredible total of 95 sales in 2022. (Fig. 15a)

— 14 Downtown Miami Luxury Condo Price Trends: Mixed


Annual Price per Square Foot up 7.5% to $724, Median Sales Price down

  • Median Sales Price declined -10.8%, down from $1,525,000 in 2021 to $1,360,000 in 2022.

— Q4 2022 Greater Downtown Miami Market Conclusion


2022 may not have been a record year for the rest of Miami, but the Greater Downtown area enjoyed exceptional buyer demand. Perhaps due to multiple businesses migrating to the financial district of Brickell, with people wanting to live closer to work, or better-priced waterfront options in Edgewater, Greater Downtown emerged as the top market for luxury condos in Miami in 2022.

Deviating from the overall annual sales trend in Miami of lower 2022-over-2021 sales, Greater Downtown Miami posted increases across the board. In Q4 2022, however, momentum slowed in line with the overall Miami market trend - except in Downtown Miami, which led market growth with an increase in year-over-year sales. Downtown and Brickell emerged as the most popular neighborhoods of 2022 (on an annual basis).

Like the overall market, the 12-month sales trendline remained negative across the board.

In terms of prices, Greater Downtown Miami, like the overall Miami trend, reported an increase in 2022-over-2021 as well as 4Q22-over-4Q21 Price per Square Foot – offering sellers great value for their luxury properties. Luxury condos in Edgewater were found to offer the best value to sellers out of all 3 sub-markets in Greater Downtown Miami – posting the highest percentage increase in year-over-year Price per Square Foot for Q4 2022. Edgewater also emerged as the most expensive of all 3 sub-markets.

The Days on Market declined across the board in step with the overall market trend in Miami, on an annual as well as year-over-year basis in Q4 2022. Luxury condos took less than 2 months (58 days) to sell in Greater Downtown in Q4 2022. Brickell emerged as the fastest-selling market.

Expectedly, inventory increased across the board, like the overall market in Miami, as the market took its seasonal breather. Downtown Miami closed with the highest months of inventory (27) in all of Miami, temporarily turning into a buyer-friendly landscape in a market otherwise poised to balance out soon.

Moving into the high season of 2023, we, as real estate experts, expect the following to influence market trends:

As a tax saver's haven and pro-business market, we expect wealth and business migration to continue fueling demand for generously-sized luxury condos in Miami, especially in and around Brickell a.k.a. the Wall Street of the South.

As interest rates start to normalize, we expect more buyers and sellers to come off the sidelines.

As a safe investment haven, we expect our foreign buyer market share to increase in the immediate future.

As high season sets in and with fewer deliveries schedules in the immediate future, we expect inventory to correct back to a balanced position.

As Miami's brand values is recognized by more people and organizations across the globe (read this Knight Frank Report ranking Miami as the second "prime" real estate market in the world), we expect more high net worth individuals to grab a branded vacation condo or second home with great rental income opportunities here.
