Douglas Elliman Releases Q2 2017 South Florida Sales Market Reports

ReportsReveal Overall Sales Increasing Across the Region Signaling Improving Health of the Market

MIAMI, FL (July 20, 2017) Douglas Elliman today releases the second quarter 2017 South Florida Market Reports for South Florida sales including Miami-Dade, Miami Beach, Sunny Isles, Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Jupiter, Wellington and Palm Beach. The reports, authored by Jonathan Miller of Miller Samuel Inc., reveals improved sales activity across South Florida.

“The recurring theme market wide for sales and price trends showed stable to rising sales and price patterns with modest inventory gains,” said Jay Phillip Parker, CEO of Douglas Elliman Florida. “Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach Gardens were among the top performers, but like Miami, most markets are in better shape than last year, which speaks to a robust fall and stronger ending to 2017.”

As a general observation, sales were up in Miami Beach overall for the second consecutive quarter, a key change since sales volume has been falling year-over-year for at least three years. South Beach condos were one of the strongest submarkets by sales and prices. New development inventory, however, edged higher, as aspirational priced listings were allowed to expire and listing discounts rose to tie the highest level in nearly five years, as sellers increasingly came down to meet buyers on price.

In mainland Miami, pricing showed gains in the median for both condos and single families. Although condo sales showed a large decline, the bulk of it was a sharp drop in distressed sales. A mixed market overall, but showing clear signs of improvement from year ago conditions.

“A large number of sales, record prices, and declining re-sale inventory is what we have seen in the second quarter of 2017,” said Jonathan Miller of Miller Samuel. “The key takeaway for second quarter has been greater negotiability at the high end of the marketplace. Listing discounts began rising in the last quarter which means that luxury sellers are becoming more realistic with pricing.”
