Miami Beach Luxury Real Estate – November 2008 Sales

The Miami Beach Luxury Real Estate Market is moving, but not as we would expect. There were 7 sales in the month of November above $1 million, 3 of which were Short Sales – this shows how there are distress sales even in the Miami Beach Luxury Real Estate Market. All seven properties are in the low end of the Luxury Spectrum, but this only shows one month of movement and should not be misconstrued to mean that the Luxury Market is suffering.

  1. The luxury market is suffering along with all other markets. London prices have fallen 30% this year. And as for Florida – wait until the option ARMs kick in.

    Sorry – there is a market correction underway and Florida is a big part of that. Not necessarily a bad thing, but the sooner we accept it, get the bad debts out of the system and move on, the better.

  2. I agree that Florida will be a big part of the market correction…..we are number one in foreclosures according to a recent FAR report, but the Luxury market in Miami Beach/Miami has not gotten hit like the rest. November’s closings were interesting in pointing out that there are short sales and foreclosures in that same Luxury market and that people are attracted to those deals.

    Interestingly enough – Fisher Island has had over $85,000,000 in sales this year with only 22 transactions….not bad for a down market.

  3. 🙂

    No, that is not bad for a down market. Although, Fisher Island is not really indicative of Florida….

    How many of those sales were before September?

  4. Fisher Island is not indicative of the Florida market, but it is indicative of the Luxury Market in the Miami Beach and Miami areas – 19 of those closings occurred before September (averaging $3.8 million per transaction!) 🙂
