StreetEasy Releases 1Q 2013 Miami Residential Market Report Revealing Signs Of Continuing Strength

MIAMI, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The First Quarter 2013 Miami Residential Market Report reveals signs that the Miami market is continuing to strengthen.  For the eighth consecutive quarter, since 2Q 2011, Miami Dade's overall median sales price has gone up year over year.  Current median sales price is $172,900, a 4.8% increase since last year.

Today marks the release of the first Miami Residential Market Report produced by, a comprehensive real estate information website. The report tracks the market trends of the greater metropolitan area with quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year comparisons.

"As in so much of the country, inventory has been extremely tight.  Couple that with increased demand from domestic and foreign buyers, and it's no surprise to see not only an increase in median sales price but also an almost 20% drop in distressed sales this quarter," says Sofia Song, Head of Research at 

According to the report, there were 20% fewer condo distressed sales since last year and 17% fewer single-family home distressed sales.  Additionally, the number of closed transactions increased by 18.5% since a year ago.

Some highlights of the Miami report include the following:

  • New Developments – New development inventory has been slow to enter the market.  This quarter, there was 45.8% fewer new development sales compared to a year ago.  Yet, there were 33 closings this quarter that were above $3M, a 136% increase since the prior quarter.  Average PPSF jumped to $532 this quarter, an increase of 52% since what was traded a year ago.
  • Condo Resales  – This segment of the market had an increase of 21.5% in the number of transactions this quarter compared to a year ago and a 3.6% increase in median sales price.
  • Single-Family Home Resales – 67% of all single-family homes sold this quarter was under $300K.  Additionally, the median price was $195,900 this quarter, an 18.7% increase compared to a year ago.
