Price Increases Seen in the Sub-$250K Market
This video introduces a 1 bedroom/1 bath foreclosure condo at Brickell on the River North which came onto the market yesterday. It’s located on the 24th floor and faces west with a direct view of the Miami River. The asking price is $128,700, or $170 per square foot.
The video also explains why we’ve been seeing prices rebound in the sub-$250K segment of the market. Demand has increased due to the availability of financing in 2010 which had been pretty much nonexistent throughout 2009. Each month we continue to see more and more buildings become Fannie Mae approved throughout Miami. The common element in most of these newly approved buildings is that condos in the sub-$250K market are well represented. Furthermore, supply has decreased as evidenced by recent market reports showing large percentage increases in year-over-year closed sales as well as pending sales. Arguments which point to remaining and future developer inventory hold very little water in this segment of the market. Buildings such as 900 Biscayne Bay, Paramount Bay, Mint, Infinity at Brickell, Marquis and Icon Brickell have very little, if any, inventory in that price range.
