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.

The Best Waterfront Location for Your New Home, Listed by Nelson Gonzalez

1417 N Venetian Way is an oversize lot of 13,382 square feet with 104 feet of waterfront on the wide bay. The lot is located on San Marco Island which is part of the city of Miami where one can build a significantly larger home than on a similar lot on Miami Beach. It is priced to sell at $5.950 million and the current home on the lot is considered a tear-down. This prized piece of land is one of the best on the Venetian Islands.

The Venetian Islands are located between Downtown Miami and Miami Beach, and offer the best of both worlds. Islands are linked to Miami Beach and the mainland by the Venetian Islands Causeway making the commute very manageable for those who work on the beach and those who work in downtown Miami. The Venetian Islands are close to world-famous Lincoln Road Mall and hot Sunset Harbour neighborhood. The Sunset Harbour neighborhood is one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Miami Beach and offers many great restaurants, Panter Coffee, and exercise crazes with Green Monkey Yoga and Flywheel Spin.

The world has its eyes on South Florida's real estate market. And, although facing a temporarily slowdown in demand for high-end luxury real estate, Miami-Dade County still continues to be one of the most desirable places for buyers looking to buy luxury homes. Recently released Christie's International Real Estate White Paper on global luxury real estate, "Luxury Defined," placed Miami to #7 in its global ranking of the Top 10 high-end real estate markets, one spot higher than last year. So, why is South Florida's luxury real estate market appealing to domestic and international buyers and climbing to the top?

Most of the luxury home owners in Miami-Dade County are second, third, even fourth-home buyers. To these buyers, the luxury homes in Miami-Dade are a literal bargain when compared to luxury homes across the globe. For example, the average prices of an urban apartment of 1,291 square-feet, in the Top-5 cities in the world, are as follows: Monte Carlo $4,593/SF, London $2,548/SF, Hong-Kong $2,374/SF, New York $2,089/SF, and Singapore $1,341/SF. Miami Beach is listed #13 on the list with an average price of $750/SF, whereas Miami is at #17 with an average price of $475/SF. One can now understand how Miami Beach’s $760/SF seems alluring when compared with Monte Carlo’s $4,593/SF or London's $2,548/SF. Therefore, these affluent cash buyers are closely monitoring our market and waiting for the perfect time to make a purchase that will meet their expectations of today's values. This, coupled with few other reasons that we will elaborate in our next blog, is what makes Miami-Dade becoming one of the most wanted destinations for owning a luxury home.
