Many of my long-time clients have been asking me why I believe Miami Beach waterfront condominium prices have bottomed? In the newer luxury condo buildings in Miami Beach, the inventory of WATERFRONT condominiums is rapidly dwindling. Some of you reading this may be asking yourselves "Is the inventory of condominiums on MLS dramatically going down?" Of course not! The examples below once again illustrate that when premier waterfront condos are PRICED CORRECTLY, they SELL! Miami Beach condos that are not priced correctly simply sit on the market, with little traffic and usually NO offers.

The point of this blog post is to give readers my market experience and translate our team's "on the field" experience. Waterfront Miami Beach condominiums that are in PRIME locations and PRICED RIGHT (according to the last three months of closed sales) are diminishing rapidly. The "short sale / distressed" inventory in the newer waterfront buildings such as The Portofino Tower, The Continuum on South Beach, The Sunset Harbour, and even the troubled The Bentley Bay are exactly Fifteen (15) condominiums available as today- November 5, 2010.
