Tags:  Miami Beach Luxury Real Estate | Overview on the Market

The following market overview includes sales of single-family waterfront homes in Miami Beach for 2015 and 2016, and for the impressive first quarter of 2017.

Let's start with year 2015. This year was one of the best years for the luxury real estate market in Miami Beach, ever! There were a total of 10 closed sales over $10M and 33 closed sales with selling price between $5M-$10M. The average selling price on the over $10M sales was $1816 per square foot. This was the year that Miami Beach saw its all-time record-breaking sale at $33M for 5800 N Bay Road. The home sold for $3,065 per square foot - the highest dollar per square foot for a single-family home, ever! 5800 N Bay Road is one of the most incredible waterfront estates in Miami Beach, sited on a 52,881-square foot lot with 200 feet of wide Bayfront and spectacular Miami skyline views. We represented the seller in this transaction, and this year alone we sold nearly $200M worth of luxury real estate.

Year 2016, however, showed to be more challenging. This year the luxury real estate market in Miami Beach was impacted negatively mainly by two factors; one, the strong dollar against international currency and two, the US elections in full swing. The strong US dollar affected mostly the buying power of the international buyer, which in turn caused weakness in our real estate market. Because of the strong US dollar and the weak global economy, most of the international buyers were apprehensive to invest in luxury real estate. Domestic buyers on the other hand, were also choosing to rent instead of buy due to the uncertainty that was caused by one of the mostly highly controversial US elections. It is usually the case in most election years that domestic buyers of big ticket items such as homes and cars, tend to slow down a bit, but this election was quite special and not in a positive way for the high end real estate market. However, the market saw a pop right after the election and the activity increased dramatically. This year there were fewer homes sold, 8 closed sales over $10M, and the average selling price per square foot of these 8 sales was a bit lower, $1,614 per square foot. In the price range of $5-$10M, there were 27 closed sales. This year we sold nearly $120M worth of luxury homes and condos on Miami Beach.

And here we are now, in 2017. This year started strong with 4 closed sales in the price range of $5-$10M, and already 5 closed sales over $10M. Two out of the 5 sales over $10M sold for over $20M. WOW! The average selling price for the over $10M sales so far is $1,877 per square foot. This year, the Venetian Islands saw their first sale of over $20M - and by far highest sale ever - with the sale of 212 W Dilido Drive selling at $22M, or nearly $1900 per square foot. We represented the buyer in this transaction. This waterfront home was an absolute modern perfection and exactly what today's buyer is looking for: well-built and designed, move-in ready home, with a prime address and unpreceded waterfront views! Great year so far, and we sure hope it continue to be this way.

That being said, we cannot ignore the fact that inventory levels affect the overall state of the real estate market. Another reason why 2016 showed to be challenging for the luxury real estate market in Miami Beach was the dramatic increase in inventory levels at prices that may not be realistic in today's market environment. Although inventory levels have started to flatten and asking prices are being readjusted, inventory levels are still high compared to previous years and it may take some time for this inventory to burn off and for the market to stabilize.Click Here to see Facts & Trends Reports for Miami Beach waterfront, single-family homes, over $1M, in the last 15 months.

With 2016 coming to an end, we wanted to give you an update on the luxury real estate market and how it compared with the year 2015. In the last several years, Miami's luxury real estate seems to have been a magnet fo domestic and international buyers, whether the reasons being Florida's favorable tax regulations, global economic weakness, violence abroad, or governmental unrest in South America. With its beautiful sandy beaches, great year-round weather, and many restaurants and cultural attractions such as Art Basel, Art Miami and the International Boat show, how can one resist South Florida’s waterfront real estate?! The year 2015 was one of the most active years for the real estate market in South Florida. We personally sold nearly $200 Million worth of luxury homes and condos, including three of the largest mansions on Miami Beach and Indian Creek Village, all with a selling price tag of $30M+. The year 2016 however, showed to be a bit challenging for the high end homes and condos. Although we sold another waterfront estate in Coconut Grove that broke all records with its selling price of $34.5M, the luxury real estate market was soft overall, as most of international buyers were apprehensive due to the strong US dollar and their unstable economy while the domestic buyers due mostly to the uncertainty with the US elections in full swing. It is usually the case in most election years that the domestic buyers of big ticket items such as homes, cars, and appliances tend to slow down a bit, but this year’s elections have been well... "special" and hit the breaks on the real estate market a bit harder. Since the summer, with the international currencies, including the Euro, getting a bit more attractive against the US Dollar and oil prices on the rise, the international market in Miami has shown some signs of life, especially after the presidental election. Inventory levels have started to flatten and sellers are repricing their homes more competitively. We are seeing many Europian and South American buyers currently actively looking at homes, condos, and vacant land, and want to make Miami Beach their home. Now with the elections behind us, we have noticed that domestic buyers are on the move as well, as the showing requests for waterfront homes have increased dramatically. Buyers are not only looking, but also making offers. The world has definitely set its sights on the luxury real estate market in Miami Beach. North Bay Road, Pine Tree Drive, Flamingo Drive, the Venetian Islands, and the gated communities such as the Sunset Islands, La Gorce Island, Star Island, Palm and Hibiscus Island, and Indian Creek Village are Miami Beach’s most sougth-after luxury real estate locations. It seems that everyone wants a slice of paradise, and our prediction is that the next 12-18 months may still be a challenge for the high end real estate market, but sales should get a bit of a pop now that certainty is starting to creep back to the market. With its stunning and unparalleled views of Biscayne Bay waterfront and the Atlantic Ocean, who would not want to call any of Miami Beach’s beachfront condos and waterfront homes their home?! If you need help selling or buying a home in Miami Beach and Miami call The Nelson Gonzalez Team and see how we can help you with your real estate needs.
