The new year, new positive news plus an abundance of new buyers have figures on their way UP and Miami Beach real estate sales are looking stronger than ever. Inventory has fallen as a steady confidence builds along the beaches while news sources such as the Miami Herald, CNBC & Wall Street Journal relay that now is the time to own (if not last year) for the record real estate lows along the Miami Beaches.
Statistics for the month of March reflect 3,580 total condos for sale along the Miami-Dade County oceanfront communities of South Beach, Miami Beach, Bal Harbour, North Bay Village and Sunny Isles Beach with condo inventory levels down 18% year to date; again this month condo inventory is down a whopping 9% over last with what is now an 13.6 month supply based on the previous 30-day closed sales:

Miami Beach | Sunny Isles Real Estate Summary
Miami Beach condo inventory continues decreasing month over month, sale-price to list-price ratios have maintained an average 5% buyer discount while active days on market have decreased to ~ 4 months to sell. Each of these indicators prove to be good signs for market improvement. Still I’m watching and beginning to see the selling price per square foot trending upwards depending on the location along the beaches. Sunny Isles Beach selling prices (Ave. per square foot) increased 12% over the prior period while Bal Harbour condo sales decreased 15%. Over the prior 90 day period, selling price per square foot has decreased an average 2% along the beaches. For the prior month, Miami Beach (REO) Bank Owned foreclosures made up only 3% of our inventory and have sold at 101.6% sale to list while Miami Beach short sales made up 14% of our condo inventory and sold at 94% sale to list. 79% of all closed sales last month were cash transactions! Miami’s weather is perfect and the market shift is noted as trends move in favor of a new balanced market by the end of the year. Many buyers are in to enjoy the warmth (& coolness factor) of Miami Beach luxury condos and to explore what remains to be a vast amount of great opportunity along Miami-Dade County Beaches.
