Fisher Island Condo Sales in April 2010

May 5, 2010 by  

bentley to fisher island

There are currently 119 Fisher Island Condos for sale: (7 less than last month)

  • Highest priced listing: $30,000,000 for an exclusive Oceanside 5/5.5 home with artwork and all!
  • Lowest priced listing: $190,000 for a studio at Marina Village
  • Pending Sales: 8 (same as previous month)
  • Closed sales in April : 2 (2 less than last month)

The 2 Fisher Island condo sales in the month of April were the following:

  • Seaside Village – 19145 Fisher Island Dr – listed for $2,399,000 and selling for $2,100,000 (The seller had bought this Seaside Village hotel unit for $2,375,000 in May of 05 and listed it for $2.8M in November of 09, suffering a small loss after 5 years)
  • Bayside Village – 2012 Fisher Island Dr – listed for $699,000 and selling for $680,000 (the owners of this unit bought in 2004 for $699,000 and listed it on and off since 2007, with a starting price of $1,800,000)

There have been 11 Fisher Island Condo sales in the first 4 months of the year compared to the 32 sales in 2009 and 25 sales in 2008.  I was asked if the Fisher Island real estate market is suffering like the rest of the South Florida Real Estate Market.  The answer, in my opinion, is yes and no.  We saw Fisher Island drop in rank from first in Forbes Most Expensive Zip Codes to thirty-something in just one year.  We started seeing distressed sales in this exclusive island, and we started seeing speculators getting hit as well as multiple property owners.

But the real truth is that Fisher Island, mostly as a vacation spot, secluded get-away and second home, affords its owners a little loss without it really hurting the pocket.  We see sellers loosing a couple of hundred thousand dollars and they don’t necessarily have to short sale and can walk away without pain.  Those that really need to sell, will drop their guard, others will just wait for the right buyer.
