JADE Beach Condo Inventory, Sales & Rentals

(17001CollinsAvenue.com) Fortune has sold out of their remaining inventory as of 2010 1Q after almost two years of occupancy and we now have 42 (17% inventory) JADE Beach resales ranging in values from $499,000 (Low Floor B1 Model) to an impressive JADE Beach penthouse ‘Sky Loft’ resale priced at $11.4M (3 Story Jade Beach I line Penthouse). The average JADE Beach list price per square foot is reflecting $646 psf (Down 3% from June) with the average selling price per square foot reflecting $476 at 160 days on market and an 88% sale to list price ratio (12% average buyer discount). JADE Beach condo sales have been reported on the MLS with 9 resale values from $468k (B1 Model at $468 psf) to $2M (E Model at $645 per square foot) setting a new record high in resale values. The inquiries have not ceased on the only JADE Beach short sale #1104D which is still pending short sale approval. I expect #1104 to eventually sell over asking price as $865k may prove to be a teaser price with D line values now ranging in sold values from $990k to $1.4M in 2010. This went pending in December and short sales can take an easy 9+ months!

JADE Beach condo rentals have been in demand as new residents test the local market & JADE Beach lifestyle. To date, 50 Jade Beach condos have rented, ranging in rented values from $2,000 (B1 deals) to $7,000 (#1708); 3 Jade Beach rentals are currently under contract with prices ranging from $2,800 (#1603) to $14,000 (#3608) Note; the owner’s representative at Affinity Realty Group needs to change the status on #3608 as it’s been pending for months now. There are 22 JADE Beach condos for rent ranging in asking prices from $2,850 (03 line as B1 model) to $9,000 (#4005 as D model).

JADE Ocean Condo Inventory, Sales & Rentals

(17121CollinsAvenue.com) JADE Ocean has remaining developer inventory with price points hovering in the $600+’s psf. I believe these to be reasonable market values given the uber luxury product with new County records now reflecting 110 recorded deeds or 44% sold. Please Note: there are more sales than this as Miami Dade County takes forever to record new deeds. Jade Beach took almost 2 years to accomplish a sell out and we’re now entering the 13th month of JADE Ocean acquiring its Certificate of Occupancy. There are 13 Jade Ocean condo resales today with the high price on a spectacular 2 Story Jade Ocean Penthouse “sky loft” listed $5.495M with over 5,000 square feet and 4 bedrooms along with a slightly smaller luxury JADE penthouse priced at $3M with just over 3,700 total square feet, 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.. There are only 2 mirrored image Sky Lofts per Model in the JADE buildings and few other penthouses comparable in Sunny Isles Beach. The lowest priced resale today is a B2 model priced at $975k which is 33% over JADE Beach (B2 model) asking values. JADE Ocean’s average asking price per square foot is at ~$757 ($743 psf in June) and today’s buyers are finding the developer inventory most attractive in the $600’s per square foot. Differences in JADE Ocean & JADE Beach will be dissected through photos & video this year while the frequent research shows us true market values with new monthly sales statistics show us the latest sales, facts & trends so please stay tuned.

JADE Ocean condos were sold out on a significantly higher price point offering clear advantages in amenities & lifestyle. It seems as though Fortune, the FDIC & Starwood amended the asking prices and adjusted to Sunny Isles Beach oceanfront market values. The residential low end market is noting considerable price gains as inventory decreases and sales increase under $250k. Talk of sold values going up has been constant across the board along the Miami Dade Beaches… The developer is relaying today’s prices at approximately $600+ psf and hoping to increase prices slowly as sales continue. One thing is for sure, the developer is 100% confident in their product standing firm on current contract negotiations. And why wouldn’t they be firm as JADE Ocean stands among the elite luxury condo towers of Sunny Isles Beach with an enormous International demand.

There are 13 JADE Ocean rentals listed via MLS and the prices are ranging from $3,500 (#1203) to $7,100 for a 3 bedroom (A model). There have been 9 rented condos ranging in values from $2,400 (B1 model) to $6,500 (E Model) to be solid starting figures in a superior building. I believe JADE Ocean will have a very strong finish by the end of 2010 and will make notes as each month shows us new figures.
