Over the past year, we're seeing Miami Beach luxury condo buyers come from all across the globe. Close to 50 percent live in another country, and the balance are people who may live in the USA and have taken advantage of the price corrections of the past few years to purchase a second (or even third) waterfront luxury property in Miami Beach. Additionally, many foreign buyers purchase under an LLC corporation as a way of hiding assets from foreign tax authorities. They tend to have a local mailing address, which can belong to a registered agent or their accountant and/or attorney's local office address.

In spite of the recent ups and downs of the real estate industry in the United States, and Greater Miami in particular, it's still a safe investment environment by global standards. Among our top clients, there's always the mindset that if something is wrong anywhere else, the U.S. is a relative safe harbor to invest cash. For example, many Latin American real estate investors are looking for a safe haven from government expropriation of private bank accounts and real estate assets, such as what occurred in Argentina and Venezuela this past decade.

Greater Miami has become the destination place for many different cultures from Latin America- with the top luxury waterfront condo buyers coming from Brazil, Argentina and Eastern European countries. Particularly for Miami Beach condo buyers, the allure to its climate, newly revitalized cultural life, security, the beaches, and its international flavor have increased the appeal of waterfront luxury condos- most especially in the premier areas such as Miami Beach's South of Fifth Street Neighborhood.

South Beach Condos - south of fifth neighborhood

In particular, ultra-luxury waterfront buildings such as The Continuum on South Beach, Apogee Miami Beach, The Portofino Tower, and The Murano at Portofino have witnessed dramatic declines in active listing inventory, and increases in sales prices. For example, the latest sales at The Continuum on South Beach have been at well over $1,350/S.F., with some even surpassing the "boom" market real estate highs of $2,547/S.F. (see the latest Miami Beach luxury condo listing inventory and closed sales at bottom of this post).

South of Fifth Condo News

The renamed Ocean House luxury condominiums in Miami Beach, will be sold and marketed as one of the most exclusive condos in Miami Beach's South of Fifth Neighborhood. The Oceanfront ultra-luxury & boutique condominium development formerly known as The South of Fifth (S5) is getting a multi-million dollar upgrade by iStar Residential, which recently acquired all of the unsold condominiums.

South of Fifth Condos Miami Beach

The oversized ultra-luxury condominium complex has only seventeen beachfront residences. The Ocean House condominiums will be a luxurious enclave on famous Ocean Drive, along the coveted beachfront South of Fifth Street, one of South Florida’s most upscale residential neighborhoods. This boutique property boasts some of the most impressive residences in all of Greater Miami, with several beach condominiums measuring over 6,000 sq.ft. What makes this condominium complex unique are that these are ALL very large three bedroom + Oceanfront condominiums. For more information on the South of Fifth Ocean House Condominiums and to see available floorplans, please click HERE or on the picture above.

Nearby luxury waterfront condo buildings include the large resort-like The Murano at Portofino, The Continuum South Beach, Apogee, The Murano Grande, Icon South Beach, and the Portofino Tower. The Ocean House condo residences are ideal for the ultra-luxury condo buyer, who values their privacy since the lobby and common areas are elegant and luxurious, yet understated. Given the very limited number of total residences and floors, each individual condo owner will be pampered with unique and personalized concierge services and a highly trained staff. This level of privacy and individualized attention is simply not an option in the nearby larger condo buildings in Miami Beach's South of Fifth Neighborhood.

The Ocean House ultra-luxury condominium complex consists of three connected Oceanfront Towers, with ten floors total. Originally completed in late 2008, The Ocean House condominiums are located next door to the Bentley Hilton luxury condo/hotel (also formerly known at Bentley Beach). This was THE last premier location left to develop on Ocean Drive, where an extra-wide area of oceanfront Beach intersects with the nearby South Pointe Park and the Nikki Beach Complex.

The popular and highly sought-after South of Fifth street area (SoFi) has the most affluent and exclusive condominium buildings built in South Beach, starting with The Portofino Tower in 1997. SoFi (as locals call the area), is a pocket of luxury waterfront condos (and a few older homes) that connects the intercoastal to the ocean within a narrow stretch of land, this makes the distance from Bayfront to Oceanfront very short. Miami Beach's South of Fifth also offers many famous restaurants including Prime Italian, Joe's Stone Crabs, Smith & Wollensky located inside of South Pointe Park, and the newly opened (and excellent) Vic and Angelo's located at 125 Ocean Drive.

Selling Miami Beach Real Estate to Foreign Buyers

In the fifteen years that I've been representing both Buyer's and Sellers in Miami Beach's luxury real estate market- especially for condos in the South of Fifth Street Neighborhood, International clientele have always been a large part of the Buyer demand for Miami Beach luxury condos. Here are a few key points to keep in mind when working with International Buyers looking to purchase Miami Beach condos:

Miami Beach Condo Buyers

  • According to data from the National Association of Realtors, the international real estate market for U.S. residential property approaches $82 Billion on an annual basis, up from $66 billion during the previous year.
  • The International Buyer's side of the Miami Beach market relies heavily on the individual Real Estate Agent & Brokerage firm's contacts and reputation.
  • The international market is very specialized on the Buyer side.
  • When negotiating, the real estate agent has to have a common language and cultural background in common to deal with prospective buyers. One of the main challenges for a Miami Beach-based real estate agent working with international customers is advising on the transfer of assets necessary to close a real estate transaction. One of the value-added services that we provide our International clientele is access to experienced legal and financial specialists. This is done in the LOCAL country of the Buyer's origin, where we can assist with the clearing and wiring of funds. These days, a high net worth foreign buyer has to be aware not only of local currency controls & tax implication with local authorities, but also potentially violating USA laws on limiting foreign currency transfers. These laws are meant to protect against International money laundering and assorted Terrorism Laws enacted since 9/11.

    A major problem currently facing the Miami Beach real estate market (again, especially for waterfront condos in South Beach) is having limited inventory. Approximately 53% of international buyers to Greater Miami are from South American countries, including Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina and Colombia. Since 2009, residents of Brazil, Canada, France and Italy also represent a large number of international buyers to the waterfront condo buildings South of Fifth- such as The Continuum, Murano at Portofino, and Apogee South Beach. These particular foreign buyers tend to buy residences at the highest end (ultra-luxury) segment Miami Beach's condos market. The number of buyers from Brazil is increasing significantly, these buyers pay about 85% in cash and only need financing for the remaining 15%. Due to the relatively high property taxes in Brazil, these Buyers are not intimidated by the prevailing tax codes in Miami-Dade County nor the maintenance dues associated with owning an ultra-luxury condo in Miami Beach.

    Miami Beach Real Estate Buyers

    In South Florida, particularly in the luxury real estate market of Miami Beach, foreign buyers are buying up property as second homes and investments. Homes are being sold at bargain prices in some areas, while commanding high prices in "prime locations". With the dwindling inventory of prime waterfront homes and condos, property values in these specific waterfront island communities contribute to the strength, and continuing price recovery, of Miami Beach's real estate market.

    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.

    Below are the actual sales comparisons between 2010 and 2011 of closed single family home sales ($1 Million and over) in Miami Beach for Zip Codes 33139, 33140, and 33141:

    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.
