Top 3 Most Expensive Miami Beach Condo Sales – October 2010

There were 131 Miami Beach condos sold in the month of October of 2010 ranging from a $4.95 Million Continuum South Beach condo, to a $43,000 7315 Byron Ave Condo in foreclosure in North Beach.  Price per square foot ranging from $49 to $4,350 – talk about a disparity! But that just shows how different the real estate market can be in the same city!  Out of the 131 sales, 11 of them were Miami Beach Condos over a million and 49% of October sales were distressed (short sales or foreclosures) – that’s a 9 point drop from last month.  All 3 top sales this month were at Continuum South Beach – which makes me sound like a broken record when I tell you that you can’t go wrong when buying at The Continuum Towers.
