Miami’s Luxury Real Estate Makes a Statement with High-fashion Brands

Oct 23, 2017 October 23, 2017

Love the finer things in life? Swear by your brands? What if you could “live” in one of your favorite brands? In Miami you can do just that. From Fendi to Armani and Porsche, the luxury branded condo trend has hit Miami in a big way.

An Obsession Realized…

In Miami’s exploding real estate scene, developers have been rushing to grab waterfront locations, posh addresses and starchitects to move their next luxury offering into the spotlight. But, somewhere in the past six years came the realization that they were missing that “X” factor. They needed something special to capture the attention of the global elite and set their offering a class apart. Enter luxury branded condos.

A Study In Branded Luxury Condos…

Dezer Properties first announced the development of the Porsche Design Tower back in November, 2011. The real estate world went abuzz with – one, a Porsche-designed tower coming to Miami, two, a futuristic elevator that lets you pull your car up to your personal garage in the sky. By February 2012, the luxury condo tower already had 15 buyers before it could get a sales center or even a decent website.
 
The roaring success of the Porsche-designed condos was enough to spark a trend. This was the missing X factor that developers needed to build buyer confidence in a crowded market (and be able to charge a premium as well).

It’s a win-win…

According to a report by management consulting firm Bain & Company, personal luxury goods sales reported slower growth worldwide in 2016. In America particularly, the luxury market really struggled with a growth of -3%. Consumers are now focusing on luxury experiences rather than goods; a trend backed by 5% growth in the segment. It is no wonder that high-end brands are choosing to tie-up with developers to create permanent structures as a constant reminder of the luxury and lifestyle associated with their name. The move is also on-point with the latest consumer trend of “seeking truly innovative brands”.
 
So, if you want to revamp your brand image, or build consumer confidence in a slowing market - build a luxury condo and get people to “live” the experience!

Real Estate News Are Trump's condo building values in South Florida dropping faster than the rest of the market?
Since South Florida is home to several Trump condominium properties, many have wondered how the Trump’s performance as President may be affecting real estate sales in those properties. To quell our curiosity, we set out to find out how those properties have fared in the period since Trump was elected President. Using data sourced from MLS 2019/8/14 we evaluated sales in Trump condo properties between January 2017 and August 2019. Our evaluation focused on properties located in the 33160 Sunny Isles Beach area, and did not include Trump condos in Hollywood (33019) and West Palm Beach (33401). Our analysis was further limited to waterfront properties built between 2003 and 2010 which are the years the Trump properties were all built, so we would have an apples to apples comparison. We focused on 2-3 bedroom properties, as this reflects the majority of properties sold during the period of evaluation.  How have Condo sales in Trump Properties fared since 2017?
