The week in luxury: A map of Miami-Dade’s priciest condo sales

While some Miami Realtors were looking under their Christmas trees for presents last week, others were going out and closing on theirs.

A handful of agents sealed multimillion-dollar condo deals last week, and two of the week’s most expensive condo sales even closed the day before Christmas.

Miami-Dade County’s priciest unit was a 27th-floor residence at the Bella Mare condo complex in Aventura. Its lavish style fetched $3.15 million after spending 117 days on the market — one of the fastest deals this week. Scott Patterson of Esslinger Wooten Maxwell had the listing, which sold for $746 per square foot.

The week’s second-most expensive sale was unit 605 at the Bath Club in Miami Beach. It was listed with Bryan Halda of Gray & Associates Properties more than a year-and-a-half ago for $3.05 million, and finally closed last week for $2.5 million. The sale breaks down to $656 per square foot. Some of the unit’s features include a formal dining room, modern appliances and imported hardwood floors.

Last but not least, the week’s third and last multimillion-dollar closing was for unit 1601 at the Trump Tower III in Sunny Isles Beach. Listed just under a year ago, Karen Matluck of ICS Realty sealed a $2.36 million deal for this unit, which has floor-to-ceiling windows and views of the ocean. The sale equates to $806 per square foot.

After those top three sales, the rest of Miami-Dade’s most expensive condo closings ranged between $1.86 million and $645,000.

Despite the rush to close out deals before year’s end, the county’s condo market slowed down considerably during last week’s holidays: only 88 condos were sold for a total of $32.263 million. Average prices were $366,633 per unit and $263 per square foot. Figures from the previous week were almost double that: 150 condos were sold for $54.183 million.
