There’s a lot of talk surrounding Miami’s uber-luxury residential market, but moving those listings is no easy feat.

“In this market, it is almost impossible to find the ‘impulsive buyer’ as we have with so many of our mid-million dollar listings,” Miami Beach realtor Nancy Batchelor told The Real Deal. She said security, privacy and location are key to selling units priced at the top of the market.

“Buyers in this market are looking for all the bells and whistles and treat these properties like mini resorts, so they are looking for pools with spas, outdoor loggias and summer kitchens, movie and theater rooms, large kitchens, huge masters with dressing rooms and the like,” Batchelor told TRD.

Below are the top 10 listings priced above $15 million that have been on the market for a year or more, according to Zillow data.
