There are currently 963 downtown Miami condos for sale in The Multiple Listing Service (MLS):

  • The highest priced condo is in The Four Seasons (The highest penthouse in Florida).  A 2 bedroom / 3 and a half bathroom, 5,798 sf penthouse listed for $13,400,000.
  • The lowest priced condo is at Brickell View Condo – a 2 bedroom / 2 bath short sale with 616 sf of living space, listed for $80,000.  Brickell View Condo is located at 126 SW 17 Rd, Miami, FL 33129.
  • Pending Sales (properties under contract):  398
  • Closed Sales in March of 2012:  137

The 137 Downtown Miami Condos sold in March range from a $1.5 Million Condo at Santa Maria Condo, to $73,000 2 bedroom short sale at Village at Brickell Condo.  Out of the 96 condos sold, 43 were distressed sales (short sales and foreclosures), that’s 31% of the sales.  The Median sale price for November Downtown Miami Condos was $402,000. Here is the breakdown of sales by condo building and areas within downtown Miami.  What's important to point out is the fact that inventory has slowly gone down, sales have slowly increased, so have median prices while distressed sales have decreased.  I would venture into stating that downtown Miami is the hottest real estate in South Florida right now.  This is evidenced by how quickly properties sell and by the demand.

And to finish off, here's the distressed inventory in this area (short sales and foreclosures). Out of the 962 downtown Miami condos currently listed for sale, 68 are short sales and foreclosures, this is equivalent to less than 7% distressed inventory in such a large area.  This percentage was above 40% just one year ago and 10% when I reported in November of 2011.  It doesn’t take a genius economist to tell you that there is a major improvement in our downtown Miami housing market.  It also means, for those of you that keep requesting to buy short sales and foreclosures, that the inventory is almost non-existent and the choices will be very limited. **all information obtained from the Southeast Florida Multiple Listing Service**
