Top 3 Most Expensive Miami Beach Homes sold in March 2010

April 17, 2010 by  

There were 22 Miami Beach homes sold in March 2010 ranging from the most expensive, which will be featured here at $2.85 Million, to the lowest sale in Miami Beach at $102,500 for a dry lot, bank owned, foreclosure home in Biscayne Beach (North Beach).  Talk about a disparity! but that’s Miami for you.  Please note that number 2 and 3 top sales last month were also dry lot homes all selling above the $2 Million mark.  Recuperating market?  I do think so, although the top of the Miami Beach luxury home market is moving really slowly.

270 Hibiscus Island – Miami Beach, FL 33139

Listed for $3,490,000 and sold for $2,850,000 on March 19th, 2010

The buyer of this home walked away with a great home and an amazing view.  The first time I saw this house there was an Aston Martin in the garage and we asked the listing agent if that could be included as an incentive (my joke was not received well….lighten up people!).  Great common areas, tons of intricate but not too ornate mill work, beautiful kitchen and nice sized bedrooms.  (The Faux painting was a bit too much for me….but nothing a little paint couldn’t solve).  This home was on an off the market and was originally priced at $4.69 million in 2006 with several reductions along the way. Here’s the MLS screaming in all CAPS description:

Here’s an immaculate house on a dry lot not just in the Sunset Islands, but in Sunset Island I, which is the most sought out of the 4 islands.  This house has the works:  limestone floors, electric shades, steam room, 2-car garage and is designer decorated which makes it even more impressive.  Some may think that it would still be “the ugly duckling” of the island, figuratively speaking because of the multi-million dollar residences that surround it, but that’s for you to judge.  The house was originally listed for $3.45 Million in September of 2007 with a price reduction to $3.45 Million in January 2009 – closed for $2.115 Million on March 26, 2010 and already listed for $3,000,000 – Maybe someone can make a quick buck and flip this property….we will find out soon.  The MLS description reads:
