luxury: Waterfront Houses for Sale in and around Miami Beach for under $1 million - 07/26/08 10:18 AM
Currently, there are 38 waterfront houses for sale for less than $1.2 million in Miami Beach, Surfside, Eastern Shores (North Miami Beach) and Belle Meade. The average selling price these days ranges from 85% to 90% of the list price, so most of these can be bought for less than $1 million, however, each seller is different and their motivation and reasons for selling may vary as well. Of the 38 in this price range, there were 11 that caught my eye as the most promising. They all have at least 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Some have pools and … (1 comments)

luxury: Best Deals for Luxury Waterfront 3 Bedroom Condos in South Beach - 07/26/08 10:05 AM
These condos in South Beach represent the best values right now in luxury waterfront condo buildings. Given the current market here, there is flexibility with most of these listings. I have included the ones that represent the best deals on the MLS. There are not too many really distressed 3 bedroom waterfront condos in South Beach. This includes bank owned properties, REOs and short sales in South Beach. I did come across one short sale in the 3+ bedroom range, which was for $5.4 million (priced too high given the property and that it is a short sale).
The best values … (0 comments)

luxury: Two Sky High Sales at Apogee Condos in South Beach - 07/05/08 04:49 PM
It has been reported that there were two recent sales in the last few months in Apogee for $16.5 million and $15 million according to Miami-Dade tax records.

Apogee was recently completed in early 2008. It was built by The Related Group of Florida, South Florida's largest developer, on a 2.88-acre site and 500 linear feet of unobstructed bayfront views on the last waterfront site at the southern tip of South Beach. It … (3 comments)

luxury: The Media and "Experts"Continue to Exaggerate ...Scaring Buyers Away (Part Two) - 06/28/08 04:57 PM
Regarding the media and well-respected experts - case in point is the S & P/Case Schiller Index, a widely respected housing index, stating earlier this month that Miami housing prices have declined by 26% in the last year. I am not sure how they are extracting these numbers, because the reports that I have been looking at for months now that are extracted from the most recent MLS statistics show something quite different.
The answer is that in some markets and in some areas within the counties the prices have depreciated from their highs, which were inflated to begin with, however, … (0 comments)

luxury: Increased Activity in Miami Beach Market - 06/21/08 01:39 AM
In the Miami Beach area, inventory levels are virtually unchanged in the last 12 months with only a 3.6% increase from 12 months ago, whereas, unit sales are down 49.5% from one year ago. In the last 3 months, the number of transactions that are pending (went into contract) is up 108% and the number of closed sales is up 46% in March from the low of December 2007, so we think that we are very close to the bottom of the market for waterfront property here, and we see the demand steadily increasing over the next several months signifying a … (2 comments)

luxury: Best Priced South Beach Waterfront Condos per Sq. Ft. - 06/21/08 01:00 AM
We researched the best priced 2 bedroom condos in South Beach, and here is a list of what we found using 1,200 square feet as a minimum for a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom condo on the water. Note that these may not be necessarily the best buildings, however, they are among the lowest prices on a per square foot basis. In Miami Beach, note that condos north of South Beach what is commonly referred to as Mid-Beach or Millionaires Row (23rd Street to 63rd Street) and North Beach (63rd Street to 87th Street) are less expensive.
On a per square foot basis, there … (0 comments)
