The overall real estate market has slowed down in South Florida this year, but there’s still buyer appetite for mega mansions and pricy penthouses with a $20 million-plus price tag.
The Business Journal has covered 17 single-family home or condo sales of $20 million or more so far this year. That doesn’t count transactions between related parties, such as a transfer during a divorce or family legal procedure where the price might not be reflective of the open market value.
According to brokerage EWM’s analysis of MLS data for existing properties, there’s been a slight decline in the $10 million-plus home market in South Florida this year. There were 16 single-family home sales of at least $10 million in Miami-Dade for the 12 months ended October 2015, down from 21 sales in the same period a year ago. In fact, that’s the lowest total since there were 10 sales in the same period in 2011. Yet, there were 102 single-family homes on the market in Miami-Dade asking at least $10 million at the end of October - the more than anytime over the past 10 years.
In Miami-Dade’s condo market, there were 10 sales of at least $10 million for the 12 months ended October 2016, down from 11 in the same period a year ago. Only three years out of the past 10 had at least 10 condo sales of $10 million-plus. However, the 85 existing condos on the market for at least $10 million at the end of October was also the highest on record. At sales pace of 10 per year, it would take 8.5 years to sell them.

Just wanted to take a moment to recommend an outstanding real estate agent. About a year ago my wife and I looked into buying a new house. We looked at exit realty's website and the next morning we received a call from Joseph Schneider. He is a true professional with an outstanding personality he will instantly make you feel welcome as if you're working with a longtime friend. My wife had unusual requests for the property and Joseph listened and found the property meeting all our needs. He is patient and knowledgeable I would recommend him to all. We purchased our new home in August and since then Joseph has remained in contact, just checking in from time to time. You can look but I doubt you will find a better agent !"
