The Miami Beach Real Estate Reviews, Statistics & Trends for June 2013

Miami’s New Construction

is now the talk of the town with new oceanfront towers including Mansions at AcqualinaPorsche Design TowerRegalia, Chateau, Jade Signature and 400 Sunny Isles (Sunny Isles Beach) along with One Ocean and Ocean House (South Beach) selling early as preconstruction. The outlook should always be long term gains with the primary reason in purchasing for your use & enjoyment, and developers have increased down payment expectations to prevent speculators from entering the market. Regardless, confident investors are buying and International money is fueling our local economy.

Miami Beach Condo Inventory

is fluctuating in an upward trend yet still in favor of buyers with 7.5 months of condo inventory for sale. Condo inventory is up 4% (YTD) from June of 2012 and up 7% since the previous study in October. Luxury condo towers such as Jade OceanJade BeachOcean FourTrump RoyaleTrump Towers and Turnberry Ocean Colony are noticing only 3 to 5% of condo inventory for sale and to top it off, asking & receiving premiums over 2012 closed sale comparable properties. The premier 3 bedroom lines directly over the Atlantic ocean now hover $1.5-$3.5M. Good deals come and go but if you’re looking to own here, the market trends show us a seller’s market with an average discount of 5% and little room to negotiate.

Selling Prices on Premier Luxury Properties

are still setting records for 2013 values with the Setai Penthouse selling at an astonishing $3,799 sp/psf value or $27M and Ocean House Penthouse #702 selling at $3,592 PSF or $15M.
