Well finally a new blog post. I’ve noticed where even the elite bloggers of Miami are slowing down a bit on frequency including the ever so consistent colleague Lucas Lechuga of MiamiCondoInvestments. Could be due to sales and increased business in the last few months which is my excuse and I am blessed to be extremely busy with sales & rentals along Miami Beaches. With this blog posting I wanted to look at the superior oceanfront towers and see what has been selling in the last 90 days and what is likely to sell in the next month or so. If you look at the absolute best of the beaches from Bal Harbour North to Sunny Isles real estate, there is only a handful of premier oceanfront residences based on personal preferences and taste. For those seeking a modern development, One Bal Harbour residences has much to offer with superior Inlet & Atlantic views. We see a total of 8 sales in the last 90 days (MLS results only) ranging from $1.550M (2229 SqFt) to $3M (5262 SqFt). The buildings average days on the market is 197 based on all 8 sales with an average selling price per square foot at $746 and an average asking price per square foot at $955. Today there are 37 One Bal Harbour condos for sale ranging from $599k (515 SqFt) to $6.5M (5262 SqFt) and there is 23% of available inventory. IMPORTANT NOTE: Regent One Bal Harbour operates the hotel suites (18 floors) from the western side while the private residences on the Eastern One Bal Harbour tower (26 floors) are separate from the hotel entryway and pool yet with full access to all amenities including the SPA. There is a private entry and ocean side pool for the residents.
Moving further North into Sunny Isles Beach we see a superior development consisting of 2 towers known as Turnberry Ocean Colony and consisting of a traditional design with a connecting private restaurant, fitness center, SPA and cocktail lounge. There are 130 private residential units at 37 floors high. There have been 6 closed sales at Turnberry Ocean Colony over the last 90 days ranging from $1.975M (2772 SqFt) to $2.625M (3735 SqFt) and there is 22% of available inventory. The buildings average days on the market is at 279 based on all 6 sales with and average selling price per square foot at $739 and an average asking price per square foot at $783. Active available residences range in price from $1.375M (2235 SqFt) to $4.8M (3735 SqFt). Just 10 blocks north of Turnberry Ocean Colony Condos is the new Jade Beach & Jade Ocean Towers which is a blog post in its own. Simply AMAZING! The architect has created an ultra modern cutting edge design and enabling smart features such as a computer controls built into the residences which handle all aspects from lighting to child care, dry cleaning & valet. Closing have begun and the appraisers are having success on some and difficulties on the other appraisals. I am looking for sellers interested in selling as this condo is a career goal to work towards. Acqualina Sunny Isles Beach is a comparable property that need not be left out…More to Come! Here’s the video:
Average selling prices at Jade Beach Condos range from $750 to $800 while Jade Ocean supposedly ranges around $1000 to $1100 per square foot and is SOLD OUT as per developer with only a small count of defaults. I am certain that Jade Condos are here to set local area records and there are 3 story penthouses that must be worth $11M+ (I am guessing here). I’m seeing the smallest units appraising above sales prices while the larger units are coming up a couple hundred thousand short ie.) $2M appraisal with a $2.2M sales price..hmmm. Based on outside comparables these larger Jade Beach condo units are under priced for the product being delivered.
Well let’s continue moving north up Sunny Isles Beach and to some I may be stretching it here yet I am overly optimistic on Trump Palace and the soon to be released Trump Royale. Why?… well the number one distinction is the gated entryway suitable for the Russian Mafia to feel protected. It’s one of the most secure buildings around and you must be on “the list” just to make it to the elegant lobby. The second reason I like the Trump Palace and Trump Royale is the proximity to the new A Rated school (K through 8th) and solid retail outlets across the street. The third reason is privacy yet access to the Resort Amenities next door at The Trump International Beach Resort.
The prices at Trump Palace & Trump Royale today are excellent and we see 7 closed sales in the last 90 days ranging from $680,000 (1348 SqFt) to $1.240M (2143 SqFt). The buildings average days on the market is at 105 based on the 6 closed sales with an average selling price per square foot at $539 and an average asking price per square foot at $672. Active available units at Trump Palacerange from $515k (1197 SqFt) to $3.9M (4200 SqFt) and there is 16% of available inventory.
