Top Listings of the Miami Beaches – January 2016

Miami Beaches Most Expensive Listings (01/03/2016)

Back in December, prior to the facelift of Real-Estate-Of-Miami, now BeachBroker.Miami, and the launch of my MLS/IDX Site, REBroker.Miami, I had an idea to begin publishing monthly articles of the top listings from each of the 5 zip codes constituting the Miami Beaches.  In this article, I feature 5 properties, one in each zip code, that is the single most expensive listing in each zip code as of January 3rd, 2016.  Each of the links below will download a full report in PDF format and contain pictures, as well as other pertinent information to each property.  Call me any time with questions or for showing appointments!

33139 – South Beach

For a $42,000,000 listing in South Beach, the listing agency only posted 7, less-than-choise photographs to describe this otherwise very large low-rise unit in SoFi, and as such, I will only a picture of the building.  The home features 4200 square feet, 6 bedrooms and 7 baths.  I find the listing confusing, and will have to call the agent because the MLS record contins verbiage such as: “floor plan possibilities”, “flexible zoning” etc.  In my opinion, as a home, this property would not sell for $10,000,000 let alone 42 million.  However, it came in on top (as the most expensive listing in South Beach).  Fear not though!  February’s top listing for 33139 will not disappoint!

33140 – North Beach

Moving on to far greener pastures indeed, this top listing lies just off Alton Road at the intersection of where the canal north of 48th Street meets the Bay.  Featuring 7 Bedrooms and 10 bathrooms with 17,055 square feet under air, this property screams “wretched excess”; right up my alley indeed!  It has a truly remarkable modern design and finishings throughout.  One look at this place and it would make you wonder on what planet the guys listing the 90 Alton Road property (featured above) are thinking!?

33154 – Bal Harbour

Listed at $36,000,000 USD, this 8 bedroom, 10 bathroom mammoth home features 20,198 square feet under air conditioning.  Newly built (2015) and situated on nearly a half acre of property, this property has all the usual amenities one would expect of a home of this caliber.

I commend the listing agent on the quality of the photography and use of words in describing this work of art:

  The ultimate subtropical modern oasis, this just completed, museum quality residence was impeccably designed by award-winning architect Chad Opennheim in the most exclusive and secure community in Miami Beach, Bal Harbour. The residence was masterfully de signed to seamlessly blur the lines of indoor-outdoor with over 17,000 sqft of living space. Experience spectacular water and sunset views from a vantage point just 300 yards from one of only 2 inlets in Miami Beach, where the ocean meets the bay.

33160 – Sunny Isles Beach

The most expensive listing in Sunny Isles Beach is a private island which as been listed for more than 1900 days (that has to be a record or something).  Listed at $49,500,000 USD, as of January 3rd it was listed as Pending Sale (hooray for tat listing office!).  The lot size is a total of 8.13 acres, perfect for a billionaire’s compound, or several large mansions, or even an extremely nice rental complex for an exclusive subset of the affluent & sophisticated 35-50 year old jet-set business professionals.

I promise something more creative than a piece of land, but I did want to start with the highest price listings on Miami Beach, and here they are as of January 3rd 2016.  I am already compiling my report for February and I will debut it next week.  I am still playing catchup with the massive influx of business my partner and I have received over the past 3 months.  It has been quite extraordinary!

Thank you for reading my article.  I love comments, constructive criticisms, and even the occasional flame.  Let me know!
