Miami Luxury Condo Market Report: Summary back to top

The first month of the second quarter has come in with some good numbers. Sales pick up pace and months of inventory begin their descent. Read on to see if the rest of the metrics line up to push this buyer-dominated luxury condo market into a balance.

For the purpose of this luxury condo report, we have only considered properties priced $600,000 and above. Also, properties priced $5 million and higher have been referred to as ultra-luxury.

Overall Market Highlights:

  • Sales post an uptick in Month-to-Month and Year-over-Year analysis for most neighborhoods
  • Overall days on market initiate downward shift
  • Ultra-luxury deals keep price trends up
  • All neighborhoods come up with a reduction in inventory
  • Market garners good momentum, but buyers still in control

Overall sales post healthy upswing. We see a healthy uptick in sales this April for a majority of the neighborhoods. Perhaps the prolonged winter and new SALT tax laws have been working their wonder. It also seems that the initial shock of a stronger Dollar is finally wearing off, with many of our South American and European buyers coming back. There is also increased interest from domestic buyers in recent months.

Overall days on market decline. A decline in the days on market is a positive indicator, showing that properties took less time getting sold this April.

Overall prices push higher. We see a price increase in most of the charts in our study. This is mostly due to brand new condos selling on the market, which are more expensive to begin with. Even resales of these freshly delivered condos keep pushed this metric higher. On the other hand, the luxury segment ($600K to $5 million) has kept its pricing modest.

Months of inventory drop to post a positive. We have most neighborhoods report a decline in inventory this April, against last month and year. Even though this is quite a positive, the change is not massive enough to make a dent in this current glut of inventory.

Overall, the market has received a slight push this April. However, these trends need to keep in order to bring the luxury condo market back into balance. Till then, buyers can enjoy the luxury that ample inventory brings along with it.

Where Does the Market Go From Here? back to top

Buyers continue to retain their hold of the market for over a year now. However, if the following factors come through, the luxury condo market could regain its footing in Miami:

  • Tax cuts keep pushing new residents our way. As the impact of the new SALT tax deduction limits come through, we see more and more inquiries by the wealthy to move to Miami. This also seems to have trickled through the good number of sales we see this month. Hopefully, the trend continues forward, as here’s all the taxes you save being a resident of Florida.
  • Softer U.S. Dollar brings back foreign buyer attention. We see the Dollar has weakened against the Euro and some Latin American currencies, giving them the confidence to come back. We also anecdotally see more people from France and Italy inquiring. The Canadian Dollar too has had modest gains in recent months. So, with a mixed bag from overseas, we mostly see an increase in buying power. Though we don’t expect a drastic change in people’s appetites for buying in Miami, we also don’t see anything to deter them from the dollar stand point.
  • Brand new inventory to infuse fresh energy. There is a significant amount of pre-construction condos set to be delivered this year. While this will, no doubt, infuse more inventory into the market, it will also bring with it a mixed bag of brand new excitement to keep buyers intrigued.
  • Sun, sand and warmer shores. While winter is officially over, many northerners in the U.S. have experienced an extended chill. If this especially difficult and prolonged winter had any influence, we could see people plan ahead and scoop up something in Miami to avoid the same next year.

Below is an insight into Miami’s overall and neighborhood-level luxury condo trends for April 2018:

Miami Luxury Condo Market Summary Monthly Data

Monthly Number of Sales - Miami Luxury Condo Market Overall back to top

Sales post upswing YOY and month-to-month. We see April deliver good numbers in fig. 1.1 below for the market overall. There is a 7% increase to report over last month and a 21% increase over same month last year. We also see this momentum make an impact on the 12-month trend line below.

Market momentum pushes up trend line. After posting a negative trend through Q1, it’s refreshing to see the trend line get back up in fig. 1.1.2 below, capturing real progress.

Days on Market - Miami Luxury Condo Market Overall back to top

“Days on market” are the total number of days from when a property is active to the day it goes under contract.

Median days on market adjust lower. We see a continuation on last month’s positive trend, as the median days on market deflate 3% month-on-month and 2% year-over-year. (see fig 2.1 below)

Miami-Luxury Condo Market Summary Days on Market-Monthly

Sales Price Trends - Miami Luxury Condo Market Overall back to top

Prices continue pushing upwards. We see another increase in the sales price and price per sq. ft. for the overall luxury condo market. This upward trend can be attributed to brand new condo product selling on the market, which is inherently more expensive, rather than prices shooting up for existing properties. This month, we see a 5% increase in the month-to-month median prices and 8% year-over-year increase. But . . . if you notice the MEDIAN sales price / sq ft remains flat, which is a better indicator of what is happening in the market. (See fig. 3.1 and 3.3 below)

Inventory Trends - Miami Luxury Condo Market Overall back to top

A balanced market will only have 9-12 months of inventory. The months of inventory are calculated as – no. of active listings + no. of pending listings divided by the average number of deals in the last 6 months.

Inventory drops 5%. We see a positive trend in the months of inventory, as it drops 5% month-to-month and 4% year-over-year. However, 40 is still a long way off from the 9-12 months of a balanced market. This puts buyers in control of negotiations and gives them ample opportunity to gain, even as market momentum tries to chip away at the current glut.

Miami Beach Luxury Condo Market Summary back to top



Miami Beach Luxury Condo Market Summary Monthly Data

Sales lose some heat but perform year-over-year. We see Miami Beach closing 8% lower compared to March (fig. 4.1). However, the popular neighborhood manages to post a 14% increase in numbers over April 2017. This pushes the trend line in fig. 4.1.1 to become almost flat, a positive compared to its previous decline.

Days on market swell 12%. We see the median days on market increase by 12% month-on-month, showing that properties are still waiting to get off the market.


Miami Beach-Luxury Condo Market Summary Days on Market-Monthly

Ultra-luxury pushes prices upwards. In fig. 4.3 and 4.4 below, we see a slight uptick in the sales price and price per sq. ft. This is mostly due to ultra-luxury sales (as high as $10 million) taking place mostly on Fisher Island.



Miami Beach-Luxury Condo Market Summary Sales Price-Monthly

Miami Beach-Luxury Condo Market Summary Sales Price p/ Sq Ft-Monthly

Inventory drops 10%. In another positive cue, we have the months of inventory drop 10% this April. It is also 3% lower compared to same month last year. What’s interesting is that the months of inventory are based on the performance of sale over the last 6 months, which shows that the market dynamic has been on the positive side for the past 6 months. However, with 33 being way off the 9-12-month mark of a normal market, buyers can get their hands on some great deals by searching Miami Beach condos for sale here.

South Beach Luxury Condo Market Summary (33139 zip) back to top

South Beach Luxury Condo Market Summary Monthly Data


Sales post uptick over previous year and month. South Beach reports a good level of sales, posting a 3% increase over March and 7% uptick year-over-year (fig. 5.1). This begins to bring the trend line in fig. 5.1.2 a bit into balance, however, it still runs negative for the month.

Days on market report increase. We see an upward shift in the median days on market in South Beach, with a 7% month-on-month increase in April.



South Beach-Luxury Condo Market Summary Days on Market-Monthly

Prices adjust lower. We see the price trends go negative in South Beach this April compared to March. The price per sq. ft. is 16% lower compared to March (fig. 5.4), but the median sale price per sq ft is surprisingly up 5% year over year.. This, as Continuum on South Beach came in with a $9.3 million sale.

Inventory down 11%. We see the months of inventory drop 5% against last year and 11% compared to last month for this lively neighborhood. Even as the trend goes positive, 28 months of inventory is way off the 9-12 months of a normal market. This gives buyers ample opportunity to dictate deals by searching South Beach condos for sale here, or beginning with a tour of this popular vacation destination here.

Mid-Beach Luxury Condo Market Summary (33140 zip) back to top

Mid Beach Luxury Condo Market Summary Monthly Data

Sales take a breather to decline. It seems the luxury condo market in Mid-Beach is taking a break as sales fall this April. There is a 59% decline in the month-to-month sales and 13% drop in the year-over-year numbers. However, the 12-month trend line stays unaffected by this dip, posting a positive streak in fig. 6.1.1. below.


Mid Beach-Luxury Condo Market Summary Monthly Number of Sales

Days on market shoot up. There is a significant increase in the median days on market for luxury condos in Mid-Beach.

Mid Beach-Luxury Condo Market Summary Days on Market-Monthly

Mixed trends on prices. With the luxury segment keeping a moderation on prices, ultra-luxury sales (as high as $5 million) like that of the Edition Residences are skewing up metrics. This is why we see a 4% decline in the median price per sq. ft., opposed to an increase in the month-to-month prices. (see fig. 6.3 and 6.4 below)


Mid Beach-Luxury Condo Market Summary Sales Price-Monthly

Mid Beach-Luxury Condo Market Summary Sales Price p/ Sq Ft-Monthly

Inventory drops 15%. With levels normalizing to below previous year stats, we see the months of inventory decline 6% year-over-year in Mid-Beach. There is also a 15% drop compared to last month. Even with a positive trend, inventory is way higher than the 9-12 month mark of a balanced market. This keeps the window open for buyers to scout for deals on Mid-Beach condos for sale here, or begin with a tour of the neighborhood here.

Surfside Luxury Condo Market Summary back to top

Surfside Luxury Condo Market Summary Monthly Data

Good numbers push up trend line. We see a good jump in sales here this April (fig. 7.1). Considering Surfside is a small market for luxury condos, even 2 extra sales can end up posting great volatility (67% increase). Nonetheless, this small market has performed in April, posting an increase in both month-to-month and year-over-year trends. This positive movement also makes its impact on the 12-month trend line, giving it a generous push upwards (fig. 7.1.1).

What’s interesting to note here is that April 2017 had zero sales, so to calculate variations we’ve compared metrics to March 2017 instead.

Ultra-luxury sales skew metrics. March closed with an $18.5 million deal for a Fendi Chateau condo. However, April closed with lower priced sales of $7 million for a Surf Club Four Seasons condo and $5 million for a Fendi Chateau. This steep difference in price range is what essentially brings down the pricing in our charts below (fig. 7.3 and 7.4).

Surfside-Luxury Condo Market Summary Sales Price-Monthly

Inventory drops 26%. We see the market dynamic makes its impact on the months of inventory in Surfside too. There is a 26% decrease in inventory compared to March this year. However, 27 is still higher than the 9-12-month standard of a normal market. This gives buyers ample opportunity to drive deals in this beachside town as they search for a Surfside condo for sale here, or see what lifestyle makes up Surfside here.

Bal Harbour Luxury Condo Market Summary back to top

Bal Harbour Luxury Condo Market Summary Monthly Data

Good sales bring up trend line. We see the market momentum work its magic in Bal Harbour as well. There is a notable increase in the month-to-month and year-over-year sales. This positivity also spills over into the 12-month trend line, giving it an upward nudge (fig. 8.1.2).

However, considering this is a rather small market for luxury condos, even a handful of sales can lead to huge volatility in metrics, which is clearly visible in the sales, days on market and price charts (see fig. 8.1, 8.2, 8.3 and 8.4 below).

4% reduction in inventory. We see the market momentum bring down inventory 4% against last month and 14% over April 2017 in Bal Harbour. Though an impressive decline, 34 months is way higher than the 9-12 months of a balanced market. This leaves a big window of opportunity open for buyers to strike deals by searching for Bal Harbour condos for sale here, or start by checking out the upscale neighborhood here.

Sunny Isles Beach Luxury Condo Market Summary Monthly Data

Sales move opposite of the market with a negative trend line. This is one of the few districts in our study to report negative sales this month. We see a 17% month-to-month decline and 25% year-over-year decrease (fig. 9.1). The 12-month sales trend line moves in tandem, posting a downward slant (fig. 9.1.2).

Sunny Isles Beach-Luxury Condo Market Summary Days on Market-Monthly

Ultra-luxury sales make prices jump. One would expect the sales price to move lower with a falling number of sales, however, we see the contrary (fig. 9.3 and 9.4). The median price per sq. ft. is 10% more than last month and median price is 26% higher. This upward move in prices can be attributed to ultra-luxury sales (above $5 million) making their presence felt.

Inventory down 3%, but not much improvement. We see inventory drop 3% over March in this sunny neighborhood, however, it still hasn’t moved since last year (fig. 9.5). With 58 months of inventory on the platter, much higher than the 9-12-month mark of a normal market, we see plenty of opportunities for buyers to strike a deal here.

This small market grouping reports a 14% increase in its sales over last year (fig. 12.1). This further helps the 12-month trend line maintain its positive streak in fig. 12.1.1.

Even with a decrease in inventory, this is one of the slowest moving markets in our luxury condos report. At 64, inventory is way higher than the 9-12 month normal of a balanced market. Buyers definitely retain their edge, as they browse through Edgewater condos for sale here or begin by exploring the individual lifestyle and condo options in Edgewater, Midtown and Arts & Entertainment District.

Conclusion back to top

Market trends continue favoring buyers. Even as most neighborhoods post an increase in sales, we still see high levels of inventory throughout our study. This points to buyers still being in control and able to dictate deals. Perhaps the market could lower its prices to incentivize buyers and maintain trends to create a shift towards a more balanced scenario.

Real Estate News Miami Building Boom 2021: These are the 12 New Condo Development Projects Planned to Date
It’s a trend we’ve been talking about since the last quarter of 2020 - waves of buyers are contributing to one of the biggest real estate booms in Miami history. As individuals and businesses escape high tax states like New York and California, and have the freedom to work from any location, luxury condo developers in Miami are announcing new project after new project.   Miami condo developers have announced over a dozen new and relaunched condo projects since the beginning of 2021. In an attempt to appeal to a wide range of new residents, each new project aims to be taller, more luxurious, and offer the most exciting set of amenities imaginable, and could bring more than 10,000 residential units to Miami over the next few years.

If you love coastal living with walkable access to Atlantic Ocean beaches, and you want to move to a beachfront address while bypassing the hustle and bustle of South Beach, there are two beachside communities to consider when looking to make your move: Sunny Isles Beach and Surfside.  While these communities are practically next-door neighbors (with ritzy Bal Harbour nestled between them) and they share many amenities, including direct beach access to the Atlantic. Plus, they both are in prime locations that provide quick and easy access to airports, shopping, arts and culture, and outdoor living, living there could not be more different from one another.   As insiders who’ve lived in these popular Miami neighborhoods, we’ve broken down the similarities and differences between these two beautiful seaside communities in case you are looking to move to Miami.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...

Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours.
