Summarizing the top 21 most expensive sales of luxury homes and condominiums in Miami Beach's real estate market for the final quarter of 2011:

Miami Beach Condos

As indicated at bottom of this blog post, Eleven condominiums priced over $3 Million sold in Miami Beach in the final quarter of 2011 for an average price of $1,765 per square ft. of living space.

Miami Beach Homes

Also indicated at the bottom of the blog post, TEN waterfront homes in Miami Beach priced over $2 Million were sold in the final quarter of 2011, at an average sales price of $720 per square ft. of living space.

The available Miami Beach luxury waterfront home and condo inventory drastically declined last year. As I previously highlighted in my 2011 Miami Beach Condos Year End Review, affluent foreign (and mostly cash buyers) have been taking advantage of recent real estate price corrections by spending over $3 BILLION in purchasing luxury homes andn condos in Greater Miami. As a result, we've seen a dramatic drop in
Miami Beach's premier waterfront home and condo inventory. The most searched and sought-after Miami Beach waterfront homes are in the luxury island communities of Palm, Star, Hibiscus, Sunset Islands I - IV, and the Venetian Island Chain that links Miami with Miami Beach. The highest priced condo buildings are The Continuum on South Beach, Apogee Miami Beach, The IL Villaggio (directly on Ocean Drive), The Bath Club (North Beach area), and The Setai Condo/Hotel on Collins Avenue.

Given the strong anti-development sentiment and building regulations in Miami Beach, the future supply of premier waterfront homes and condos in Miami Beach will continue to be VERY limited. Combined with an amazing city and beach lifestyle, I believe that high net worth foreign cash buyers to will continue to invest in Miami Beach luxury homes and condos in premier locations. Therefore, I'm convinced that in 2012 we will see strong price appreciation for premier waterfront Miami Beach homes and condos.

Miami Beach Luxury Homes Sales Update

In the past sixty days, there have been a total of twelve single family luxury homes sold in Miami Beach (closed sales over $1 Million). This represents an astounding 2000% sales volume increase in luxury homes sold from the same period in 2010! In just sixty days, over $58,000,000 (that's over Fifty Eight Million Dollars!) in Miami Beach single family homes sold in zip codes 33139, 33140, and 33140 versus just over $18,000,000 (Eighteen Million) for the exact same period last year.

Miami Beach Real Estate

The National S & P/ Case-Shiller Home Price national data was just released, which showed the first signs of a national turn in housing. Our thesis for the past two years has continued to become more widespread - the overall lack of new construction in over five years is slowly drawing down the unsold inventory that accumulated during the real estate market downturn. Buyer demand for Miami Beach's the luxury housing market has been driven mostly by high net worth Foreign Buyers (especially Latin American and Eastern Europeans) as well as Northeastern "snowbird" clientele. We're also seeing the strongest demand in years for luxury condos in South Beach's South of Fifth waterfront condo buildings- such asThe Murano at Portofino, The Continuum on South Beach, Apogee, Icon, etc. I'll elaborate more on these Foreign Buyers, who are driving demand for Miami Beach luxury real estate (especially in South Beach's highly coveted Condo market) in our next Blog post.

Miami Beach and South Beach Real Estate Market OVERVIEWMiami Beach Real Estate

Miami Beach condo sales activity has increased significantly in the second quarter of 2011, especially for waterfront luxury properties. The second quarter of this year was also defined by an increase in high-end Miami Beach home sales. The Miami Beach and South Beach condo and single family residential market experienced sales surges fueled by strong demand for waterfront and oceanfront properties. Ultra-luxury waterfront communities have witnessed near-record sales activity since the housing market price corrections of the past few years. For example, this year’s most ultra-luxury home sale was an incredible Star Island home that sold for an amazing $25,500,000.

Home price indicators saw positive gains, especially for zip codes 33139, 33140, & 33141 in Miami Beach with a boundary up to 30th street. The median sales price declined 15.9% year over year to $925,000 for Miami Beach single family homes. Consequently, the number of closed home sales transactions in Miami Beach increased 6.6% to sixty five individual homes sold during this period. High end, luxury homes sales increased and defined the market, which is consistent with the overall national trend of wealthy individuals (especially foreign buyers) driving the luxury real estate market in premier real estate areas of the country. Although Miami Beach single family home prices declined as sales edged higher (median sales price declined 15.9% to $925,000 down from $1,100,000) which is about 14% of Southeast Florida regional sales.

In highly desired waterfront areas with a high concentration of luxury condo buildings (such as the South of Fifth neighborhood of South Beach) slightly lower sales prices, and an influx of wealthy cash buyers, attributed to a large increase in the number of sold condominiums. Miami Beach's market trends indicate a stabilization in condo prices, with the average price per square foot declining by just 0.6% year over as the number of closed sales surged 25.3%.

Miami Beach's overall Real Estate Market has seen much positive news this year, including an increase in luxury waterfront condo & home demand, record breaking sales, more affordable sales prices, condo building sell-outs, and a steady stream of international buyers making second and vacation homes purchases on Miami Beach.

As part of our evolving marketing strategy for the past few years, I now travel regularly to international real estate shows and meet with Brokers from around the world. I'm usually asked about the overall health of the Miami real estate market. Miami Beach waterfront real estate is what today's high end buyers look for, especially in demand are waterfront homes in one of the island communities, as well as condos in the South of Fifth Street area. Most out of town Buyers tend to believe that a direct Ocean view condominium is "THE" view to have, but as they see property and compare nighttime views, the value of the downtown Miami skyline quickly becomes apparent. The best South of Fifth condo buildings that feature these types of Downtown Miami & Biscayne Bay views are The Continuum North and South Towers, The Portofino Tower, Apogee South Beach, The Murano at Portofino, Icon South Beach, and The Murano Grande.

Many of the Brokers that we do busines with in South America and Europe also ask about the possibility of purchasing a foreclosed, or bank owned, waterfront condominium or home in one of the island communities in Miami Beach - such as Palm, Star, Hibiscus, Sunset Islands I - IV, or The Venetian Islands chain. The fact is that waterfront luxury condos and home sales are UP significantly in the past six months, along with an appropriate decrease in available inventory of listed property. For example, in the Summer of 2009, near the bottom of the real estate market, there were just under five hundred (500) condominiums on the active market for sale in Miami Beach's South of Fifth Street waterfront condo buildings - The Murano at Portofino, The Murano Grande, Icon South Beach, The Continum North and South Towers, and Apogee. As I write this in mid-February, 2011, these same condominiums buildings have a total inventory of just over one hundred fifty (156) listed condos. This represents a decrease of 67% percent in available, unsold inventory in South Beach's South of Fifth Neighborhood!

Does this mean that the waterfront condo inventory will run out? Of course not, but as new listings come on the market, Owners / Sellers will see a gradual price increases. There are many building and architectural restrictions imposed by the City of Miami Beach, since the city passed new building codes in late 2001 that put severe limitations on future re-developement. Also, there's vitually NO waterfront land available for future development in Miami Beach. The conclusion being that there will be severe limitations on future supply of new property becoming available in Miami Beach, which indicates the strong potential for future price appreciation.

I want to tell the truth about housing supply and demand in Miami Beach. As previously posted, there's been significant Miami Beach Real Estate Sales Momentum in the last few months -continuing a strong upward trend. According to financial experts, this simply wasn't supposed to happen so soon after the financial crash of 2008. I heard all summer that when the tax credit expired, we would begin to see a sharp degradation in purchasing of existing homes AND condos in Greater Miami and Miami Beach and a corresponding price decline, predicted as much as 20% to 25%!

We're experiencing the opposite -- strong sales momentum, and prices that are holding steady to actually increasing. For example, we are seeing this upward trend in Miami Beach's South of Fifth Neighborhood, which has a finite supply of luxury waterfront buildings such as The Continuum on South Beach, Murano at Portofino, and Icon South Beach. When you link the latest sales numbers with a zero new building construction starts, you get this monumental shift that explains the increase in sales and the increase in prices that were NOT supposed to happen so soon! A case in point, even in Miami Beach's long-troubled Bentley Bay condominiums at the southern end of West Avenue- we've seen a dramatic decline in inventory from approximately ninety (90) condominiums offered for sale in late 2008 to under sixteen (16) today. Also, due to the high volume of pending contracts we will probably see gradual price APPRECIATION for select waterfront South Beach condominium buildings.

I came to the conclusion long ago that the overall Miami Beach housing market (whether for condos or single family homes) is on the rebound. Particularly when we look at the City of Miami Beach's STRONG anti-development restrictions on tearing down existing buildings, and limited Floor to Area ratios, the conclusion is that there's a PERMANENT limitation on future housing supply in the city of Miami Beach.

This is particularly relevant for South Beach's South of Fifth neighborhood, and the appropriately named "South of Fifth" development that was just acquired by iStar Financial Inc. (NYSE:SFI). It was announced last week that iStar will have full ownership of the luxury Miami Beach real estate condominium project “South of Fifth,” located at 125 Ocean Drive (right next to the Bentley Hilton). iStar plans to rebrand South of Fifth, reposition the condominium in the market, and redesign the intimate, seven-story beach-front condo with a multi-million dollar luxury investment. South of Fifth currently features 28 oceanfront residential units, three office units and one retail space. Units range in size from 660 square feet to 6,240 square feet. Preliminary marketing plans will have asking prices in the $1,000/S.F. range. Condominium amenities will include a private lounge, gym facilities, beachfront pool, private beach club, hotel services, as well as 24-hour valet, security and concierge.

Miami Beach Real Estate - South Beach Condos

Miami Beach is an International tourism mecca, drawing affluent foreigners from South America and Eastern Europe. The South of Fifth Neighborhood is where everyone wants to be these days. This has turned into a diverse & complete vacation destination for tourists who crave year-round sunshine, modern luxury waterfront condo residences, a vibrant night life, and a wide variety of gourmet restaurants & beaches.

If you're a potential Miami Beach condo or home buyer, my recommendation is to act NOW. The fact is that there's a very limited supply of WELL priced luxury waterfront homes and condos in Miami Beach, particularly for waterfront luxury residences located in the immediate South Beach area. The more motivated Miami Beach sellers, whether they be lenders or individual owners, are rapidly disappearing!

The recent market activity for Miami Beach luxury homes, especially for premier waterfront properties, and South Beach condominium buyers is impressive. Although the national newsmedia continues to tell us that the national housing market is depressed, I can attest that my team and I are VERY busy these days. Almost all of our listed properties, whether they be single family homes or condominiums in both Miami and Miami Beach, have either sold or are under contract with well-qualified Buyers.

As I write this, in early January of 2011, my team and I have been overwhelmed by the strong Buyer activity of the past two months as high season has kicked into gear for Miami Beach Real Estate Buyers and Sellers. We're averaging a new Buyer inquiry EVERY HOUR- these usually come from our various Miami Beach condominium and luxury homes websites, and our international Brokerage partner portals in Latin America.

As our inventory of exclusively listed homes and condominiums in Miami Beach has been sold, we've been actively reaching out to homeowners in our target market of Miami Beach homes and condos. Potential sellers should be capitalizing on this growing demand for premier Miami Beach homes and condos from both USA-based and International Buyers by working with the RIGHT marketing Real Estate Agent / Brokerage Firm.

Key traits that Sellers should look for in a Miami Beach Real Estate Agent:

  • In my experience, an international and broad-based real estate marketing plan requires a professional real estate TEAM.
  • This team should have a professional and well-trained staff with specific administrative tracking systems in place to handle QUALIFIED Buyer leads for Miami Beach exclusively listed properties .
  • Also, a well-trained and market specific sales staff (experienced and licensed Realtors) that specializes in a specific market segment, for example, Miami Beach waterfront homes.
  • Our affiliation with Fortune International Realty and Development also allows us to provide our clients with unparalleled marketing- with a truly global reach with wholly owned and operated offices in Brazil, Argentina, and International real estate marketing partnerships in various East European capitals.
