Miami Condo Market Snapshot: June 2020

Three months into the coronavirus pandemic, we’re still adjusting our daily work and personal lives, and the markets are still adjusting, too. As we continue to monitor how the Miami condo market is faring, data from our June Multiple Listing Service (MLS) CBB Condo Market Snapshot show that, compared to May, the market is showing signs of a recovery, but compared to last year, sales have dropped significantly. The reality is the market will likely not catch up to 2019 numbers, but signs of stabilization for this year are promising.

Our MLS market survey took into account a total of about 9,000 condo listings across the greater Miami area and the Miami Beaches. Here’s the latest Miami condo market data comparing the last few months, as well as compared to last year.

Closed Sales Gap Stabilizing - Diverging since March 2020

Miami Overall YTD Closed Condo Sales


Cumulative Closed Sales for 2020 exceeded sales for most of the year up until March 28th. From March 28th onwards, Closed Sales have dropped. As of June 23rd, Total Closed Sales for 2020 were 1,864 compared to 2,721 in 2019, a decrease of 31.5%.



Closed Sales for Current Year and Prior Year and % Difference for 7 day Periods. Current and Prior Year


If we consider all 7-day periods for the year-to-date to June 22nd, we can see that sales have been approximately 60% lower since mid April, but this is to be expected. The key question is are sales over the most recent 7-day periods increasing?



Overall Condo Market - June Performing Better than May

Market Watch Miami - Closed Sales for 7 day Period. Current and Prior Year


A comparison of sales over 7-day periods ending March 30, April 6, May 4 , May 11, May 25 reveals a consistent decrease in Closed Sales and a widening gap between Closed Sales this year and Closed Sales last year.

However, our comparison for the 7-day periods ending June 8 and June 22 reveal an increase in sales during that time and compared to May, and a decrease in the sales gap between the same period last year. Pending Sales have also exceeded Closed Sales since the end of May. Both these factors may indicate the start of recovery.



Luxury Condo Closed Sales (>$1M) - Market Trying to Stabilize

Miami Luxury YTD Closed Condo Sale


Looking back over the past 6 weeks shows that the luxury condo market is still trying to find its footing. Year to Date (YTD) Closed Sales for condos priced $1 million and above continue to slip each week:

  • Week of May 13th: decrease of 22.2% (200 sales in 2020 vs 257 in 2019)
  • Week of May 25th: decrease of 27.6% (210 sales in 2020 vs 290 sales in 2019)
  • Week of June 6th: decrease of 30.7% (219 sales in 2020 vs 316 sales in 2019)
  • Week of June 22nd: decrease of 32.0% (233 sales in 2020 vs 347 sales in 2019)


Luxury Condo Sales - Week by Week YTD

Similar to the overall market, looking at all 7-day periods for the year-to-date to June 22nd, we can see that sales are still closing but have been approximately 60% lower since mid April. Again, we do not expect to see 2020 cumulative sales recover to 2019 numbers. We are watching a shift toward a sustained positive trend line.



New Listings, Price Decreases Trending Up

Market Watch Miami: Price Decreases, New and Back on the Market Trends


Interestingly, New Listings have generally increased over the last 6-7 weeks, and so have Price Decreases.

The number of price decreases over a 7-day period have increased from 106 in March to 274 in June.  The cumulative number of price decreases over this period is estimated to be in excess of 2000.  Although sales seem to have increased over the last week, the number of price decreases still indicates that the market is seeing buyer opportunities.

There does seem to be some movement in Price Increases in the last week, where there were over 30 increases. This is an encouraging sign. Still, both of these values are small when compared to the total market of more than 9,000 condo listings.



Summary of Key Miami Condo Market Indicators for June 22

Market Watch Miami Combined - 7 Days Ending 22 June 2020


  • Number of New Listings increased to 337 for week ending June 22, the most we have seen over the last 8 weeks and more than doubling compared to 295 for week ending June 8, 214 at the end of May, and 136 in April
  • Pending Sales and Closed Sales increasing
  • Number of Price decreases continues to rise

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. With the real estate market in Miami in one of its most lucrative cycles yet, here’s a look at the latest condo projects proposed in Miami since January 2021 (till the time of this post): New Miami Condo Development Projects 2021 E11even Hotel and...

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. However, listen to the marine...
