Sunny Isles Beach (2008 year end) Waterfront Condo STATS & Trends

Hello friends. Today, I wanted to relay the 2008 South East Florida real estate trends (statistics & trends) showed for the zip code 33160 which includes Sunny Isles Beach and Aventura waterfront condos. These figures are based on a 12 month and 15 month snapshot ending December 31st 2008…

Avg. Days on Market 131 125 -4.6% 124 125 0.8%
Sold/List Diff. % 91 86 -5.5% 91 86 -5.5%

Average days on the market decreased 4.6% in a positive direction to just over 4 months selling time. These are based on SOLD figures. On the flipside of this coin, 125 days on market to sell is not what seller’s want to hear. Additionally, not included in this blog post is the question of ‘months of inventory’ which there is nothing extremely positive to relay and could change with various factors in the coming year(s). There were 41 months of inventory in December which decreased over 2008 positively by 31.6% and 22.9%+ over the previous 15 month period. A healthy market is around 6 months of inventory but we can’t predict future inventory levels just yet…

Solid news for buyers includes a 2008 price decrease (specific above to 33160 waterfront condos) of 6.4% and 17% over the previous 15 months. This chart above is specific for all price points in the 33160 zip code. I’ll be adding new posts similar to this one for specific luxury oceanfront towers of Sunny Isles Beach and Miami Beach in the coming weeks. These graphs and statistics show us a lot when attempting to forecast whether or not it’s the right time for you to buy Sunny Isles real estate (specific to Sunny Isles, Bal Harbour & Miami Beach FL real estate) is concerned.

YES, I am optimistic. I am a Florida Realtor©, aka. Keller Williams Sales Associate and soon to be Broker-Associate plus a happy person so I choose to be. Why have a cup half empty approach unless your a media outlet, speculator or Case Shiller? I am also honest and if it’s a bad real estate decision, I’ll let you know as I plan on keeping long term business relationships.  A LOT of the buying decision depends on what you think is the best time and whether or not you have cash as leverage or need financing (get the bank approval first, then buy right)… If you’d like to have your questions answered,  have input & opinions on this blog post or any other, we’d love to hear from you.
