Miami Residential Luxury Sales Up Double Digits In 1Q

Luxury sales are surging in Miami, as the area benefits from new laws that make high-tax states like New York more expensive.

Overall, 421 luxury sales (above $1 million) were recorded during the first quarter of 2018, up 12.3% from the same period in 2017.

Of those sales, 206 were condo units. The increase in luxury condo sales from 2017 was 8.4 percent.

The remaining luxury sales were single family, with 215 sold – up 16.2% from the year before.

Data is provided by the Miami Association of Realtors.

The actual numbers may be even higher, as it entirely excludes new construction condo sales.

What are the numbers vs 2, 3, 4 years ago? The market was red hot then…. Closings crashed 2-3 years ago.

Lots of sales below ask as well.

Thank you.. market is moving because sellers are making concessions, people arent flocking from NYC and LA to loose that lifestyle to save a few grand in taxes.

Correction, this is a boom and bust city. Currently we are experiencing a BOOM of all booms, not saying it will happen soon, but there will definitely be followed by a BUST. Hold your hats ladies and gents. All in due time.

There is money flowing from Argentina, Brazil and Colombia predominantly but there is also flow from other Latin markets and of course domestic and elsewhere.

Related is so cheap that it didn’t finish painting the wall for Brickell Heights (as seen in picture). Any other developer that was truly proud of their finished product and thought themselves as providing quality work would have spent the extra few thousand to finish it. It’s sad there are no laws that ask developers to finish a project and not leave half done. Look at BCC with those ugly gray walls facing north. Disgusting.
