JADE Beach condo inventory for the month of March shows us 27 units on the market ranging from $2.450M (4/4) to $599k (1/1.5). Average asking price per square foot is at $683 with an average list price at $1.416M.
JADE Condo resales… There hasn’t been any and why is this?
I’m going to rant here since nothing in JADE Beach has sold… If you’d like a market snapshot for Sunny Isles Beach real estate we see 14 new “luxury condos” sold within the last 90 days (2005+, ocean direct) with an average asking price per square foot at $544 and selling price per square foot at $485. The Sunny Isles Beach SP/LP (Sale to List Price) Ratio% is at 91% with an average of 177 days on the market. Taking Trump Palace condos for example, we see an good above average turnover rate with 5 condos selling in the last 90 days at $510 psf and an average asking price per square foot at $592. Additionally, condos priced well at Trump Palace sell at an average of only 63 DOM (days on market) and at 93% of list price.. Trump Palace’s younger, more modern sister building Trump Royale, has not had any resales either however Trump Royale has a multitude of unsold developer units whereas JADE Beach does not; and I say this with the understanding from the developer’s rep that over 79% of JADE Beach has been sold. The point here is not that new developments will sit empty with unsold units, but more so the fact that the Sunny Isles Beach 2009 real estate market is not ready to come up to $683 PSF for JADE Beach condo resales that are unfinished (decorator ready).
Is there still smoke and mirrors on the overall average values and resale potential at JADE Beach?
Okay, I understand the JADE Beach resale values are fueled on “that’s what I paid for it” and “that’s what the developer (or my agent) thinks I could get for it” or even the valued point that JADE Beach is a far better building than Trump Palace and not comparable in the current “sold” values above. Could it be…?
Okay then, so let’s step up the Sunny Isles Beach market snapshot to what some would argue to be the best luxury condo residences for services, amenities and resale values… Turnberry Ocean Colony. Turnberry Ocean Colony has had 2 closed sales in the last 90 days with 2 under contract at an average list price per square foot at $542 and average closed sale PPSF at only $492! Turnberry Ocean Colony #2401 was sold (by yours truly) in September 2008 at $712 PSF and then just over the holidays the prices dropped to what are reflecting in the 01 (Abaco) line today at an average “asking” price per square foot at $690 psf.
These last 3 years 6 months have been the nose dive many new true investors were hoping for with luxury condos selling in the 400’s. Everyone including myself were truly hopeful that JADE Beach would have initial resale values in the $700 to $800 PSF range while JADE Ocean resale values would top $1,000 PSF mark and set new area records. I still concur that JADE Ocean will set area records or stay parallel with Turnberry Ocean Colony, however each must be priced WITH the market. We’re still pulling through a market correction, inventory glut and bad press from the media. Vital signs (inventory + SP/LP%) are in a positive direction for the Sunny Isles & Miami Beach market snapshot and my cup is always half full.
There are some realistic unit owners that have priced their JADE Beach condos with the market to sell.. ie) #4008 (E line $482 psf), #1508 (A line $595 psf) #1904 (D line $520 psf), #1104 (D line $582 psf). Believe me, I’m all for JADE Beach condos and the soon to be released JADE Ocean, otherwise I would have never spent thousands on this site & blog or countless hours writing, editing and creating good content. I LOVE THE JADE BUILDING(S) with a fiery passion and they are where my focus (& money) is being spent. I’m simply ready to see resale action.
The truth is in the numbers. 1.888.383.7386.
