Sales up 62.1% year-over-year — 2nd highest in a 3rd quarter — 12-month sales trendline positive

With a 62.1% increase in sales volume, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove (collectively) outpaced both the Miami Beach (0%) and Greater Downtown groupings (+10.3%) in terms of year-over-year growth. Reporting one of its strongest third quarters in recent history, this pairing of historically significant neighborhoods posted its second-best sales numbers in a third quarter, only behind the all-time high reported in Q3 2021 (part of the high-energy pandemic-year market).

Echoing and boosting the positive pace and mood of the overall Miami market, where volumes were higher year-over-year but expectedly declined quarter-over-quarter (given the seasonality of Miami's luxury housing market), Coral Gables and Coconut Grove (collectively) reported the following sales statistics for Q3 2023:

  • Q3 2023 vs Q3 2022. Sales increased 62.1% year-over-year, up from 29 in Q3 last year to 47 in Q3 this year. (Fig.1.1)
    • What's worth noting is that this year's third quarter outpaced all pre-pandemic quarters, along with reporting the second-highest sales volume in a 3rd quarter on record – showing exceptional strength and growth possibilities in a relatively modest market, in terms of scale and volume compared to Miami Beach or Greater Downtown. (Fig. 2.1)
  • Q3 2023 vs Q2 2023. Sales remained flat quarter-over-quarter, adjusting only -2.1%, marginally, down from 48 in the previous quarter to 47 in Q3 2023. (Fig. 1). Any changes here simply seen are minor corrections from a record Q3 2023. 

Looking into the monthly sales statistics of Fig. 2.2 for Coral Gables and Coconut Grove:

  • July 2023 closed with 16 sales compared to 10 sales for the same month last year.
  • August closed with 12 luxury condo sales versus 9 in the same month of 2022.
  • September closed with 19 sales as compared to 10 for the same month a year ago.

Owing to intense demand from domestic and foreign buyers, the 12-month sales trendline of Fig. 2.3 maintained its positive trajectory between Q2 and Q3 2023.

As real estate experts, we expect the combined neighborhood of Coral Gables & Coconut Grove to close 2023 strong. Even as momentum is showing a slow down from the second quarter and possibly going into the fourth quarter (as noted from historical sales trends), we anticipate stable demand (indicated by a positive trendline) to keep inventory levels in check, keeping this beautiful pairing of neighborhoods a balanced market through the end of the year.

Aligned with the price gains and stability noted in the overall Miami market, the key price statistics for Coral Gables and Coconut Grove (collectively) in Q3 2023 were:

  • Q3 2023 vs Q3 2022. Price per square foot increased 14.6% year-over-year, up from $758 in Q3 last year to $869 for the comparable quarter of 2023. (Fig. 1.1).
    • With the highest percentage gain (15%) in year-over-year price per square foot, luxury condos in Coral Gables and Coconut Grove offered maximum value to sellers in all of Miami, continuing its winning streak from Q2 2023.
  • Q3 2023 vs Q2 2023. Price per square foot declined -13% quarter-over-quarter, down from the record high of $999 in the previous quarter to $869 in Q3 2023. (Fig. 1)
    • A look at the 5-year snapshot of quarterly luxury condo prices below (Fig. 3), reveals that the price per square foot leaped to its second-highest in a quarter, everindicating that sellers continued receiving top value for their luxury condo investments in this pairing of Miami's tropically lush neighborhoods.
  • Q3 2023 vs Q3 2022. Median sales price increased by 3.5%, up from $1,550,000 in Q3 last year to $1,605,000 for the comparable quarter this year. (Fig. 1.1)
    • As predicted, with newly constructed luxury condos, such as Villa Valencia and the Park Grove properties, selling for over $1,000/Sq. Ft., this modest sub-market is no longer the most affordable in Miami overall. Giving up its position to Downtown Miami with a price of $711/Sq. Ft.

4. Q3 2023 Coral Gables & Coconut Grove Luxury Condo Inventory Trends: Lowest in Miami, Balanced Market

Q3 2023 closed with 9 months of inventory. Owing to exceptionally high market momentum for the last year, inventory levels increased slightly compared to the previous quarter. Echoing the overall Miami trend for inventory, luxury condos in the combined neighborhood of Coral Gables & Coconut Grove also reported an increase in year-over-year, as well as quarter-over-quarter stats:

  • On a quarter-over-quarter basis, inventory was up from 8 months in June this year to 9 months in September 2023 – posting a 12.5% increase.
  • On a year-over-year basis, inventory was up from 5 months in September 2022 – reporting an 80% increase from a year ago, one of its lowest points in our 7-year study. (Fig. 5)
  • At 9 months, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove continued reporting the lowest levels of inventory of all Miami neighborhoods under our review, as they did in Q2 2023.

Considering inventory fell within the 9 to 12-month range of a balanced market, the combined neighborhood of Coral Gables & Coconut Grove continued offering buyers and sellers equal value and opportunities. This dynamic pairing was also one of the first sub-markets to shift back into a balanced position at the beginning of the year – keeping the market stable with healthy competition through most of 2023.

5. Q3 2023 Coral Gables & Coconut Grove Luxury Condo Market Conclusion

With an above-average third quarter, this historically significant submarket trumped all market expectations. Leading sales growth stats compared to the Miami Beach or Greater Downtown groupings, this modest market appears to be slowly climbing in the popularity charts in Miami.

Boosted by exceptional sales performance, the 12-month sales trendline maintained its positive trajectory from Q2 to Q3 2023, showing signs of a market poised for robust growth. With the fourth quarter also known to be one of the softest (as per historical data), we, as luxury real estate experts, still anticipate the market to close 2023 on a high note.

On the price front, the price per square foot increased 14.6% year-over-year, reporting the highest gains of all the Miami neighborhoods under review. At $869/Sq. Ft., sellers continued receiving top dollar for their luxury condos in Coral Gables and Coconut Grove, as prices hit their second-highest peak of all time.

Almost in line with the overall Miami trend of higher year-over-year days on market, Coral Gables & Coconut Grove also reported an uptick, still keeping the market on its toes as luxury condos took only 63 days to sell.

Coral Gables & Coconut Grove (collectively) closed Q3 2023 as a balanced market, in line with the overall Miami market trend. Again, with the lowest levels of inventory (9 months) of all Miami neighborhoods under our review, this combined neighborhood cemented its status as one of the most dynamic sub-markets in Miami. As expected of a balanced market, buyers and sellers continued enjoying equal footing in terms of negotiations and value.

As real estate experts, we expect the following factors to influence market trends going into the final quarter of 2023:

  • With a growing business environment supporting our economy and job market, we expect more high-earning young professionals to fuel demand for luxury housing in Miami.
  • Following the likes of Lionel Messi and Jeff Bezos setting up homes in Magic City, more high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth buyers are expected to be drawn to our tax-friendly shores which are also known to offer an exceptional quality of life.
  • As our newest batch of short-term-rental-friendly and branded preconstruction luxury condos go under construction, we expect a larger pool of investors to be attracted to our growing market.
  • More wellness-minded families and individuals are expected to turn to our sunny shores to enjoy the year-round warmth, exciting natural trails, and outdoor fitness initiatives, which are conducive to a healthy and active lifestyle.
  • For this dynamic pairing, we also expect limited pre-construction deliveries (in immediate cycles) and stable buyer demand to keep the market balanced.

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.
