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

New Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Law Florida: Complete Condo Guide
Opinions and Advice New Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Law Florida: Complete Condo Guide
Finding and moving to a new home can be a strenuous experience, even when you like the change you’re making. This is more so when you have an emotional condition or disability and part of your treatment involves having an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). In this case, finding a new home comes with a whole new set of challenges only you and your furry friend can know. And no one needs the added fear and stress of possibly being denied housing or being discriminated against for owning an ESA. Thankfully, a new Florida law on emotional support animals that went into effect July 1, 2020, explicitly states what you and your current/prospective landlord or HOA can and cannot do regarding Emotional Service Animals. The law applies to all condos, apartments, and rental homes. Last updated on March 27, 2024.
