Miami Luxury Condo Market Report: Summary back to top

December played out almost as expected, closing the year and last quarter with stronger sales. A majority of the neighborhoods also reported a reduction in their months of inventory, pointing towards another positive. Predicting better sales and momentum for 2018, we are expecting the luxury condo market in Miami to stand in a much better position come this year’s end. Read on for our quarterly analysis and December’s highlights.

For the purpose of this luxury condo report, we have only considered properties priced $600,000 and above.

Overall Market Highlights:

  • Annual sales miss the mark by minute margin, however last quarter closes on a high note
  • Yearly days on market increase, but Q4 closes with a hint of (reduction) positivity
  • Annual analysis shows lower prices overall, adding to buyer motivation
  • Inventory reduces marginally giving market hope
  • Though market still favors buyers, strongly expecting a turnaround by end of 2018

Sales gather some wind under their wings, momentum expected to continue. We have 2017 closing on a strong note with most neighborhoods posting an uptick in their quarterly results. This adds to our hope of a robust start to the first quarter, as more of that winter magic trickles in. We also have the tax cuts to the wealthy coming into play soon, which should further set the ball rolling.

Days on market still high, expect to ease out by year end. Even as 2017 posts a higher days on market, we predict the metric to either go steady or reduce in 2018. With an increased buyer demand and lower prices, we hope to see properties move faster this year.

Overall prices dip, expected to attract more buyers. We’ve known that sellers have finally come to terms with this buyer’s market and it’s now visible in the price charts below. With the luxury condo market being flexible with its pricing, more buyers are expected to turn up for deals in 2018. This is then expected to chip away at the glut of inventory we’ve seen looming over 2017.

Overall lower months of inventory, expected to reduce further in 2018. Even as more condo projects were delivered by year-end, we see a decline in the months of inventory for most neighborhoods in our study. With higher sales and lower prices, the stage is set for this stock to clear off significantly by year-end 2018.

Overall, we see a market that is finding its momentum. With factors like winter demand and lower prices playing in its favor, we expect a turnaround to surface in the latter half of 2018.

Where Does the Market Go From Here?back to top

In previous reports, we’ve discussed at length how a strengthening U.S. dollar, strong stock market and shaky start to the presidency had been holding back sales numbers and brought the current condo market to favor buyers.

However, we expect the following to alter trends and bring the market back in balance:

  • Positive impact of tax cuts. With the tax cuts rolled out, we expect to see the full impact of these in the first two quarters of 2018. As this overhaul favors the wealthy, we look forward to more of the elite to come shopping for second homes in Florida.
  • Lower prices motivating buyers. With most neighborhoods posting a drop in prices, we see how sellers have adapted themselves to appeal to this buyer’s market. We expect this drop to further motivate buyers, bringing up sales numbers, and eventually getting the luxury condo market back in balance.

Below is an insight into Miami’s overall and neighborhood-level luxury condo trends for the month of December 2017:

  • Strong winter closes year on a high note. The monthly and quarterly charts below reveal how 2017 went out with a bang. We see Q4 closing 10% higher than same time last year (fig. 1.1). We can also see how December’s sales closed 29% stronger than last month and 35% higher compared to last year (fig. 1.1.1). As expected, a strong winter came with a little pick me up for the year-end market in Miami. Hopefully, we will see this positive trend continue into 2018.

  • Overall trend line tips down. Looking into the annual numbers above for the luxury condo market, we see 2017’s sales fall 2% short when compared to 2016. This becomes pretty evident in the trend line tracing sales over the past 12 months below (fig. 1.1.2), which tips forward as the year closed.

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.

  • Annual days on market close higher, while quarterly and monthly numbers post improvement. We see a 15% increase in the median days on market in 2017 as against 2016. However, just as the year closed, December posted a 5% decrease against November (fig. 2.2). With both November and December posting a decrease in their median days, we see Q4 closing 1% lower than Q3 (fig. 2.1). We definitely hope to see more of this positive trend in 2018.

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

  • Yearly prices come down, as do quarterly figures. Looking at the bigger picture above (yearly data chart), it’s easy to see how the buyer’s market influenced prices to come down in spite of a fair amount of ultra-luxury sales (above $2 million) in 2017. The median price in 2017 was 3% lower than 2016, while price per sq. ft. dropped 4%. The quarterly sales price charts (fig. 3.1) show a 2% decline quarter-over-quarter, and a 3% year-over-year decline. The quarterly sales price per sq. ft. (fig. 3.3) also followed suit.

Inventory Trends - Miami Luxury Condo Market Overall back to top

A balanced market will only have 9-12 months of inventory.

  • Inventory dips 3%, though trend still favor buyers. It is refreshing to see the months of inventory decrease 3%, even with lots of new projects being delivered year-end. Fig. 3.4 shows the months of inventory standing at 42 (3986 active listings + 175 pending listings divided by a 6-month average of 100 deals a month). Hopefully, the momentum garnered in December will continue into 2018 to further bring down this trend closer to the 9-12 months of a balanced market. Until then, buyers can take their pick of the litter and enjoy an upper hand in negotiations.

  • Monthly sales up, but slack in historical analysis, still future-positive. December paints a robust sales picture in Miami Beach. We see a 68% month-on-month and 32% year-over-year increase (fig. 4.1.1). But, even though Q4 posts a 5% increase over Q3, it falls 3% short of Q4 last year (fig. 4.1). Nonetheless, we still expect a strong opening to 2018, if December’s numbers are to be taken as any kind of indication.

  • Annual trend line posts sharp decline. Fig. 4.1.2 below traces sales over the last 12 months. Even though spring time posted some highs, the annual sales fell 2% against 2016 leading to the negative trend we see below.

  • Annual and quarterly days on market climb, though December posts slight improvement. It’s easy to see the days on market climb steadily in fig. 4.2., which is why 2017 reported a 14% increase in annual numbers. The quarterly median days too went up 3% compared to Q3 and 12% year-over-year. However, December came back with a correction, bringing down the trend by 2% month-on-month and 4% year-over-year (fig. 4.2.1). Hopefully, we get to see a continuation of this decline in 2018.

  • Annual, quarterly and monthly prices post slight deflation. We see a slight drop in prices for the luxury condo market in Miami Beach. The annual median price came down 1%, with the price per sq. ft. dropping 4%. Also, the median price went down 9% from Q3 and was 6% lower than Q4 2016. Even the price per sq. ft. was 9% lower compared to the same quarter last year. (See fig. 4.3 and 4.4 below.) We further had December posting a decline of 9% in its year-over-year sales price, as the price per sq. ft. dropped 20%. (See fig. 4.3.1 and 4.4.1.)

However, Q4 fell 11% behind same time last year. A closer look at fig. 5.1 reveals that the quarter was weaker than 2015 and 2016. Nonetheless, if December’s charts are any indication, we hope to see a stronger Q1.

  • Trend line takes a dive. Again, spring time’s highs couldn’t keep the 12-month sales trend line below from taking a dive by year-end. Hopefully, we’ll get to see a correction in the upcoming months.

While sales were up 17% quarter-over-quarter, they significantly rose 40% over Q4 last year. Even December came through with great numbers. The neighborhood reported a 50% month-on-month increase and a 29% hike over 2016 (fig. 6.1.1). However, a good last quarter could not make up for annual volatility, as we see the 12-month trend line decline sharply in fig. 6.1.2 below.

  • Quarterly numbers consistent, though zero sales in December make trend line nose dive. Being a modest market for luxury condos in Miami, it is not surprising to see Surfside come up with zero sales below (fig. 7.1.1). This is why we also see the 12-month trend line decline sharply (fig. 7.1.2). However, the last quarter did have some positives to report (fig. 7.1). Q4 matched the sales in Q3 and posted a 50% increase over same quarter last year. It is also worth mentioning that this small market has consistently reported an average of 27 sales for the last 3 years.

Conclusion

Predicting a stronger 2018, buyers should hustle. With December bringing in good sales momentum, we see the trend being carried forward into 2018. We expect more sales, more transactions to push a major chunk of inventory off the market by year-end. This leaves buyers with a limited amount of time to grab the best deals and make use of this “high inventory-low price” combo that has launched the New Year.
