Top 3 Most Expensive Miami Beach Condo Sales – June 2010

July 22, 2010 by  

There were 195 Miami Beach condos sold in the month of June of 2010. The disparity in pricing is surreal to say the least, and ranged from $30,000 for a 1 bedroom / 1 bathroom, 667 sq.ft. foreclosure at Marseille Condo in Normandy Island to $15 Million for a penthouse villa at The Setai.  21 of those sales were condos over $1 Million and only 2 of the 21 were over $5 Million.  What’s amazing about Miami Beach condo sales today is that most are cash deals.  I’ve talked to a few colleagues who have admitted to not doing a financed deal in over 2 years!  Personally, I don’t blame them, some of the bank underwriting requirements nowadays can be ridiculous, to say the least.  In the month of June, The Setai, Apogee and The Caribbean made the list of The 3 most expensive Miami Beach condos sold.

June’s Most Expensive Miami Beach Condo Sale

The Setai Resort & Residences: 101 20th Street – Miami Beach, FL 33139

Listed for $19,999,999 and sold for $15,000,000 on 06/04/2010

The Setai is the epitome of luxury, service and prized oceanfront property in South Beach.  It’s an amazing oceanfront resort hotel adjoined by a 40-story residential tower with tropical gardens, pools and sundecks that lead you to the gorgeous beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.  Now that I’ve set the tone, imagine the whole 40th floor of the Setai with over 6,000 square feet of living space, over 4,000 square feet of terraces with private pool, garden and outside dining area.  Completely furnished and with the most amazing views.

PH Villa B had been on and off the market for a while and was purchased in 2004 for $9.5 Million before finally selling last month.  The listing description read:

Palace in the sky! The ‘Imperial Suite’ is the only fully furnished penthouse in the Setai Hotel Rental Program. One-of-a-kind terrace with pool, garden, & outdoor dining areas. This PH encompasses the entire 40th floor (6,000sqft interior/4,000sqft terrace) offering stunning, panoramic ocean, intracoastal, and city views. Price includes all art, electronics and furnishings by renowned architectural design team. Rack rate offered for this unit is $30,000/night.

June’s Second Most Expensive Miami Beach Condo Sale

Apogee South Beach:  800 S Pointe Drive, #604 – Miami Beach, FL 33139

Listed for $6,250,000 and sold for $5,800,000 on 5/21/2010

Apogee is all about modern Luxury and location – the South of Fifth address with the most accolades.  And proof is in the pudding when we keep seeing record breaking sales month after month.  Unit 604 is equivalent to last months 904 sale of $6.55 Million, but at a much better value – also considering 904 was designer ready and this was was not.  The difference in price per square foot is $181, which many could argue is worth the 3 higher floors (but I doubt it).  The property was listed in January 2009 with a starting price of $6.25 Million.  The MLS screams:

STAR ISLAND IN THE SKY, SOUTH OF FIFTH! ULTIMATE LIFESTYLE, PERSONAL SERVICE & HOTTEST DINING SPOTS. READY TO MOVE IN WITH 36 BY 36 LIMESTONE FLOORS THROUGHOUT, 4 BEDROOMS, MEDIA ROOM, & 2450 SQ. FT. WITH 11 FT. WIDE WRAPAROUND BALCONY W/SUMMER KITCHEN. AMAZING GOURMET KITCHEN W/GAS COOK TOP, MIDNIGHT KITCHEN IN MASTER W/DOUBLE STEAM SHOWER. 2 CAR A/C GARAGE. 5 STAR LIVING FOR THE CLIENT WHO WANTS THE BEST! UNIT SQ.FT. AS PER DEVELOPER

Features:

  • 4,154 square feet of living space
  • 2-car a/c garage

June’s Third Most Expensive Miami Beach Condo Sale

The Caribbean Condo: 3737 Collins Ave, #PH-1 – Miami Beach, FL 33140

Listed for $3,900,000 and sold for $3,500,000 on 6/15/2010

The Caribbean Condo is a luxury ocean front high-rise between South Beach and Millionaire’s Row.  It’s located in a historic district and the original Caribbean Hotel was designed by famed architect L. Murray Dixon – the original hotel was restored and a new residence tower constructed right next to it to compliment the newly restored ambiance.  What’s happening in the location of The Caribbean is incredible – including the recently announced site for the New Edition Hotel by Marriott – which only reinforces how much money is being pumped into this area of Miami Beach.

So here we have a penthouse unit with Eastern as well as Western views where you get the best of both worlds – ocean views in the day and city lights at night.  It was originally listed for $3.9 Million in December of 2009.  MLS reads:

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! THIS STUNNING PENTHOUSE IS THE NICEST AVAILABLE IN MIAMI BEACH! 3900+ SQ FT, 4/4.5, SPECTACULAR PRIVATE MASTER SUITE, DIRECT EAST AND WEST VIEWS, SUMMER KITCHEN, AND ENDLESS VIEWS OF MIAMI BEACH! ONE OF A KIND – A MUST SEE!

    This just shows how the classes are diverging creating an ever greater chasm between those that have and those that don’t. Hey, don’t me wrong. I dont hate the rich! I envy them honey!

    Hi Jessica – I don’t think this has anything to do with a diverging class. If you want to see divergence, go to South America where there’s no middle class. On the contrary, we are seeing less spending in the Luxury market here in Miami Beach….much less than in past years.
