The Real Deal Miami

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

An interactive look at where the biggest deals were struck

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.
