Miami Beach Luxury Condo Market Summary 1Q20 - Fig. 1


Miami Beach Luxury Condo Sales Down YoY

Q1 sales drop 18.3% year-over-year with negative trendline. With an 18.3% drop in year-over-year sales (fig.1), Miami Beach turned out to be the biggest contributor to the negative sales seen in the overall Miami Luxury Condo Market Report for Q1. 

A look at fig. 2.2 below reveals that lower sales in the months of January and February resulted in this year-over-year dip. While January's sales dropped from 34 in Q1 2019 to 25 this year, February's sales dipped from 45 to 29 this year. However, March's sales managed to hold their own, increasing from 41 in the previous year to 44 this Q1, ruling out any correlation with the COVID-19 outbreak for now.

With sales dipping to their lowest in a first-quarter since 2015, especially after posting higher than normal sales in Q4, the 12-month trendline takes a steeper dive (negative) moving from Q4 2019 to Q1 2020 (fig. 2.3).

South Beach: Sharp Increase in YoY Days on Market

Luxury condos spent 85 more days on market compared to the same quarter last year and 84 more days compared to the previous quarter (fig. 9). This odd spike may not necessarily be due to a deteriorating buyer-seller dialogue, but due to a sudden drop in sales volumes this quarter.

South Beach: Higher Quarter-end Inventory Favors Buyers

However, on a quarter-to-quarter basis, inventory stays almost flat, inching up slightly from 36 months at December-end. Since levels are way off the ideal 9-12 months of a balanced market, buyers still find favor in this desirable market and have the opportunity to drive negotiations.

Mid-North Beach: Luxury Condo Sales Down

Sales dip 34.8% year-over-year with flat trendline. Posting the second-highest percentage decrease (34.8%) in year-over-year sales, just behind South Beach, this combined sub-neighborhood also turns out to be a major contributor to the negative sales trend seen in Miami Beach (fig. 1).

A closer look at fig. 12.1 reveals that this is the lowest the sales have been in a first-quarter for Mid-North Beach since 2015. Further reflecting this drop in sales volume, the 12-month trendline of fig. 12.2 goes from positive in Q4 2019 to flat this quarter.

Going against the overall market trend in Miami, luxury condos spent 39 more days on market compared to Q1 2019 and 21 more days compared to last quarter (fig. 14). This spike is more of a result of the slowdown in sales during this first-quarter, rather than buyers and sellers not seeing eye-to-eye in dealings.

Sales stable year-over-year with flat trendline. Deviating from the overall market trend in Miami, Q1 sales duplicate year-ago figures (fig. 16). Looking at the first-quarter for the four previous years, it is worth noting that numbers have only deviated by one closed sale, showing a good opening to 2020 for this combined grouping (fig. 17.1).

Further, the 12-month trendline in fig. 17.2 turns flat this quarter from a negative in Q4 2019, owing to this stability in sales seen in Surfside and Bal Harbour.

Surfside & Bal Harbour become most expensive in Miami with highest percentage increase in Price per sq. ft. In stark contrast to the trend of declining prices seen in the overall market report, this Surfside & Bal Harbour grouping reports the highest percentage increase of all the Miami neighborhoods included in our quarterly review. 

With a 60.7% year-over-year increase in its Price per sq. ft. (fig. 16), the sub-neighborhood knocked out South Beach as the most expensive in Miami. The sale of luxury properties in Surfside was the biggest contributor (70%) to this jump in prices that took the price per sq. ft. from $941 in Q1 last year to $1,511 this year (fig. 18). The Median Sales price too increased 4.7% year-over-year, going from $2,530,000 to $2,650,000.

In line with the overall market trend in Miami, inventory sees a drop of 27.8% on a year-over-year basis. This combined sub-neighborhood also emerges as the closest in Miami Beach to reaching the ideal benchmark of 9-12 months. It also has the second-lowest levels of inventory in all of Miami, just behind Coral Gables and Coconut Grove. Considering buyers only have a limited time to drive deals in their favor in this grouping, they can start by searching for Surfside or Bal Harbour condos for sale here.

Q1 Price per sq. ft. up 11.3% year-over-year. Going against the overall market trend of declining prices, luxury condos in Sunny Isles Beach report a year-over-year increase of 11.3%, bringing up the price per sq. ft. from $683 in Q1 2019 to $760 this year (fig. 21). On the other hand, the Median Sales price declines 13.1% year-over-year, reducing from $1,770,000 in Q1 2019 to $1,537,000 this year. This difference between the median price and price per sq. ft. trends could be due to the newer set of luxury condos being smaller in size, yet more amenity-rich, making them fetch a higher price per sq. ft.

A closer look into quarterly price patterns in fig. 23 reveals that Q1 closed with the highest price per sq. ft. since Q3 2017 in this Miami Beach sub-neighborhood.

Staying put at 71 months through Q1, inventory was 11% higher than December-end's 64 months (fig. 25).

Sunny Isles Beach has the second-highest amount of inventory out of all the Miami neighborhoods included in our study. It's also one of only three neighborhoods (besides Brickell and Fisher Island) reporting higher quarter-to-quarter inventory in our overall study. This gives buyers a big window of opportunity to find the best deals and drive negotiations in their favor. To make the most of this opportunity, begin with a search of Sunny Isles Beach condos for sale here.

Fisher Island: Luxury Condo Sales Up YoY

Q1 sales up 25% with negative trendline. Bucking the overall market trend in Miami, Fisher Island reports a 25% increase in year-over-year sales (fig. 26), but that is a reflection of 5 sales for quarter versus 4 for the same period last year. This is also the only sub-neighborhood in Miami Beach to report positive sales figures. However, its 12-month trendline turns negative in 1Q20 from its flat position in the previous quarter for not being able to match the momentum of higher than average sales registered in Q3 2019 (fig. 27.1).

Fisher Island becomes second-most expensive in Miami with median price of $1,130/sq. ft. In contrast to the overall market trend of declining prices in Miami, Fisher Island reports an 11.3% increase in its year-over-year Price per sq. ft., going up from $1,015 last year to $1,130 in Q1 2020. The Median Sales price too takes a big leap of 50.2%, increasing from $4,062,500 in Q1 2019 to $6,100,000 this year (fig. 26).

A look at the five-year snapshot of quarterly prices below (fig. 28), further reveals that the price per sq. ft. trended close to the lower-end range of the period under review.

On a quarter-to-quarter basis too, luxury condos spent 105 fewer days on market. This sharp drop is a positive indicator and points to a closer match in buyer-seller expectations in the sub-neighborhood.

Fisher Island: Buyers Gain Advantage with Higher Quarter-end Inventory

Q1 closes with 48 months of inventory. Consistent with the overall market trend for luxury condos in Miami, inventory in Fisher Island declines 31.2% year-over-year, reducing from March 2019's 60 months. However, levels increase through the first-quarter, going up from December-end's 29 months to 48 months in March (fig. 30). This makes Fisher Island one of only three neighborhoods (besides Brickell and Sunny Isles Beach) to report a higher quarter-to-quarter inventory in our overall study. This further gives buyers the added advantage of ample time and choices to look for the best deals possible as the metric would need to settle down to its ideal 9-12 months of a balanced market. To make the most of this opportunity, begin with a search of available Fisher Island condos for sale here.

Fisher Island Months of Inventory from Mar. 2019 to Mar. 2020 - Fig. 30


A balanced market has only 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.

Conclusion

Broader trends in this Miami Beach grouping were found generally in line with those seen in the overall Miami luxury condo market report for Q1 2020.

A sub-neighborhood analysis, however, revealed certain deviations. The submarkets of Surfside & Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles Beach and Fisher Island were the only ones to report positive sales figures, going against the overall trend of lower sales. These three neighborhoods also reported higher year-over-year prices, opposed to lower prices overall. Days on market were up only in South Beach and Mid-North Beach. However, all sub-neighborhoods reported a decline in year-over-year inventory, in line with the overall trend.

As mentioned in our overall report, with this being a presidential election year and the full impact of the COVID-19 outbreak yet to be seen, we expect a delay in any sort of corrective shifts for the luxury condo market in Miami. In spite of the inventory declining for all sub-neighborhoods, buyers will continue enjoying the leverage offered by an inventory-heavy market going through 2020, and extending into the next year at least.

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...

Ever since the FAA relaxed its height restrictions more than six years ago, Miami’s skyline has continued to elevate itself with glimmering designs of glass and light. The tallest residential building in Miami as of this post is the apartment highrise Panorama Tower at 828 feet. But that won’t last for long.
