JADE Beach & JADE Ocean Condo Sales, Stats & Inventory for December 2009

As the economy begins showing signs of improvement and consumer confidence is on the rise, Jade Beach and Jade Ocean condos are being previewed heavily, sales are occurring and other cautious consumers want to know where the bottom of this market stands and is NOW the right time to buy? Well besides year end tax incentives and only 2 weeks left in 09, 2010 IS a great time to buy. Sunny Isles Beach condo inventory declined 3% in the last month and 14%year to date. I’ll explore the fine analytics further below and hope to continue educating everyone interested in these amazing uber-modern condo towers known as JADE Beach & JADE Ocean.

JADE Beach Condo Inventory, Sales & Rentals

(http://17001CollinsAvenue.com) JADE Beach developer condos have almost sold out after 1 year of occupancy with the 9 remaining hitting the MLS this month at clearance pricing. There are now 41 (16%) JADE Beach resales ranging in values from $539,000 (Low Floor B1 Model) to an impressive JADE Beach penthouse listing at $4.8M (2 Story Jade Beach Trophy Penthouse). 4 JADE Beach condo sales have been reported on the MLS with values from $468k (B1 Model) to $1.385M (E Model) or about $478 per square foot! This seems to be the established pricing trend for Jade Beach. The average JADE Beach list price per square foot is reflecting $631 PSF down 8% from March’s hopeful highs with the average selling price per square foot reflecting $442 at 99 days on market plus a 90% sale to list price ratio.

Jade Beach Rentals have been in demand especially with season among us reflecting 27 recent Jade Beach condos ranging in rented values from $2,000 (B1 deal) to $5,500 (#3107) which was a great deal for the tenants (see JADE Beach 3107 here). 3 Jade Beach rentals are currently under contract with asking prices ranging from $2,500 (#1606) to $5,300 (#3402) while 22 rentals remain active ranging in asking prices from $3,200 (07 line as B2 models) to $9,900 (#4001). It would have benefited some seller’s to lease their Jade condo residences over the season as demand appeared to be greater than last year for the oceanfront coastline of Sunny Isles Beach.

JADE Ocean Condo Inventory, Sales & Rentals

(http://17121CollinsAvenue.com) JADE Ocean is still early into the corrections all new condo towers must undergo with County records reflecting 62 (UP 23% since last month) recorded deeds or 25% sold. Jade Beach took 1 year to accomplish what it has and were now on month 5 of JADE Ocean acquiring the TCO. Nothing much new to report since few condos have been relisted. There are 4 Jade Ocean condo resales today with a high price on a stellar 2 story Jade Penthouse listed last month at $2.7M with just under 3,200 Interior square feet, 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. There are only 2 (C 2’s) in the building and no others comparable in Sunny Isles Beach. I expect it to sell close to asking price in the next 6 months. With an average asking price per square foot of ~$762 for the building, I can’t see paying an extra Million for something similar & obtainable at JADE Beach but time will soon tell us.. This is the critical curve separating value differences between each tower that will be dissected over the next year while sales statistics show us the facts. 

JADE Ocean was sold out on a higher price point offering clear advantages and now noting a needed adjustments to what IS market value as speculators argue these values with Fortune, the FDIC-Starwood to prices they should be closing at (lender appraisals are coming in short). One thing is for sure, the developer is 110% confident in their product and relentless on the contract values standing firm on negotiations. 

There are 8 JADE Ocean rentals listed (via MLS) and the prices are ranging from $3,400 (B1 model) to $8,000 for a 4 bedroom (E model). Nothing has rented yet but I’m certain there will soon be rentals pending & deals happening as the demand is high. A B1 was reported to have rented on a 2 year lease for $2,800. Could JADE Ocean be a superior building worth paying 30% more? We’ll soon find out.. Sunny Isles Beach condo inventory is trending downward consistently each month by 2 to 4%with 1,123 condos for sale and 41 closing in the last 30 days (27.3 month supply).

Sunny Isles Beach Luxury Condo Sales & Statistics

This year 594 Sunny Isles Beach condos have sold via MLS database with an average sale price per square foot at $233. In a contrast comparison of luxury oceanfront condos specific to Collins Avenue, we see  627 condos for sale with 58 closed sales in the last 90 days. This year 219 oceanfront condos have sold via MLS with an average selling price per square foot of $377. If we take only the top 10% of 2009 condo sales we find an average sales price per square foot of $601 and an average asking price per square foot of $695 reflecting an average 12% discount for new buyers in this market. Looking at the 58 closed sales from the last 90 days, we see statistics changing (market improvement?!) relaying a 91% sale to list price ratio or 9% dicount. Irrelevant statistics to some but I find it interesting…

The top Sunny Isles Beach condo sales of November and the first half of December were at Acqualina with #3003 selling at $3.1M ($702 SPSF), and #1405 at $1.2M ($542 SPSF).  The final luxury condo sales were at Ocean Four & Ocean Two selling at $1.130M ($374 SPSF) & $850k ($395 SPSF) respectively.

JADE Beach & JADE Ocean Condo Sales, Stats & Inventory for October 2009

What’s new & happening in this month of October? Where are sales today at JADE Beach & JADE Ocean? What’s up with the FDIC, Starwood and Jade Ocean uncertainties? Who’s buying today and are there any JADE Penthouses left? How’s the overall Sunny Isles Beach real estate market? We’ll be exploring these questions and the monthly statistics for Jade Condos Sunny Isles.

JADE Beach & JADE Ocean Condo Sales, STATS & Trends

Well, it’s official in Starwood Capital Group acquiring Corus bank assets in which Starwood has a 40% stake created by the FDIC to hold the assets of failed Corus bank, including thousands of South Florida condos. The FDIC is keeping the other 60% stake in the non performing construction loans and real estate assets that have unpaid principal balances of about $4.5 billion. Only 1 South Florida project was in good standing with Corus bank and I would guess it to be Jade Ocean.

The South Florida projects with loans in the hands of the FDIC now include Jade Ocean Condominiums in Sunny Isles Beach, Paramount Bay in Miami, Trump International Hotel & Tower in Fort Lauderdale and the Edge Condominium in West Palm Beach. – SF Business Journal

FDIC is holding the strongest hand! JADE Ocean condos are of very little concern in this matter and a small piece in this real estate asset pie as the development is 99.9% completed, TCO in place and speculators are lined up closing weekly along with new buyers coming through each day showing serious interest. I do know of one friend who was scheduled to close and the FDIC stalled it asking to review the file and final negotiations although as per the representative at JADE Condos, closings are being scheduled each week and all but a few trophy Jade Ocean Penthouse condos remain from $4 to $7M.

JADE Beach Condo Sales & Rentals

Jade Beach developer condos have almost sold out after 1 year of occupancy. There are 35 (14%) JADE Beach resales ranging in values from $539,000 (Low Floor B Model) to a new penthouse listing at $4.8M (2 Story Jade Beach Trophy Penthouse). 3 JADE Beach condo sales have been reported on the MLS with values from $468k (B1 Model) to $1.385M (E Model) or about $478 per square foot! A new pricing trend and precedence has been established. The average JADE Beach list price per square foot is reflecting $636 PSF down 8% from March’s hopeful highs.

Jade Beach Rentals are picking up especially with season among us reflecting 14 recent Jade Beach condos ranging in rented values from $2,000 (#1603 & #1107, B1 deal) to $5,000 (#3105 & #905). 4 Jade Beach rentals are currently under contract with asking prices ranging from $2,600 (#1106) to $5,800 (#4104) while 29 rentals remain active ranging in asking prices from $2,500 (06 line as B1 models) to $10,000 (#3608). We should see more rentals turn over within the next few months.

JADE Ocean Condo Sales & Rentals

JADE Ocean is almost too early to report on since few condos have been relisted and too few listing agents seem to know how to implement the correct building address (17121 Collins Ave.) and or photos of which building is which. In doing a cross check using the development search of “Jade Ocean” there appear to be 5 condos for sale with a high price on a high E line unit finished out to perfection. With an asking price we’re watching closely at $2.475M reduced $520,000 from last months $2.995M (~$771 PSF), I can’t see paying an extra Million for something obtainable at Jade Beach. This is the critical curve that will be dissected over the next year as Jade Ocean was sold out on the higher price point and noting drastic adjustments to what IS market value.

There are 2 Jade Ocean rentals listed (via MLS) correctly and the prices are ranging from $3,400 (B1 model) to $5,000 for a high floor 2 bedroom (1600SF) with Den.

Sunny Isles Beach Luxury Condo Sales Statistics

Sunny Isles Beach condo inventory is trending downward consistently each month by 3 to 4% with 1,170 condos for sale and 47 closing in the last 30 days (24.8 month supply). This year 480 Sunny Isles Beach condos have sold via MLS database with an average sale price per square foot at $231. In a contrast comparison of luxury oceanfront condos specific to Collins Avenue, we see  842 condos for sale with 28 closing in the last 30 days. This year 179 oceanfront condos have sold via MLS. If we take only the top 10% of 2009 sales we find an average sales price per square foot of $618 and an average asking price per square foot of $725. Irrelevant statistics to some but I find it interesting…

The top Sunny Isles Beach condo sales of September and the first half of October were at Acqualina with PH4506 selling at $4.999M ($778 PSF), Trump Palace #1009 selling at $2.875M ($710 PSF) and lastly Turnberry Ocean Colony which sold ALOT of bargain priced inventory (16 condos have sold at Turnberry Ocean Colony in the last 30 days)!  The final luxury condo sale was at Jade Beach climbing the charts on the $1.385M ($431 PSF) & $1.2M ($493PSF) sale!

JADE Ocean Penthouse Deals to Purchase in 2009

 There is a Jade Ocean Penthouse residence

that in my opinion, is an outstanding property deal for resale, leasing ($15-$20k potential income) or simple enjoyment. JADE Beach has 1 beautiful PH left (as MLS resale) priced at $4.8M, however this 2 story JADE Ocean Penthouse is superior in price. Another of the largest Jade Ocean Penthouses just went under contract with an asking price of $13M noted as the I Model which is the largest Penthouse offered. Call me for further details and more information coming in October… 1.888.383.7326!
