Coral Gables Deep Dive: Q2 & Q3 2016 Recap


1532 Catalonia Avenue, Coral Gables, FL

As of the end of the 3rd Quarter, there are 232 properties for sale listed above $1,000,000. This is up from 114 properties at the same time last year, an increase of 103%. During the 2nd and 3rd Quarters, a total of 124 houses that were listed above $1,000,000 sold. This equates to an 11.2-month supply of houses for sale based upon trailing 6-month absorption. At this same time, last year, there was an 8.7-month supply. Anything less than 6 months is a “seller’s market” and anything over 9 months is a “buyer’s market”. In 2016, we have made the transition into a buyer’s market. While prices are still up year over year, the farther we move into a buyer’s market, the more pressure that will place on pricing. Coral Gables remains one of the healthiest luxury markets in South Florida, with many other markets showing well over a one-year supply of housing inventory. Houses priced properly will sell, but the average house will take longer to sell today than it would have at the start of the year.

I hope you find the breakdown of individual neighborhood sales and statistics on the cover to be useful. Please call me for a private, no-strings attached, consultation to determine the value of your property.
