2018 Coconut Grove Real Estate Statistics

 
Well, 2018 is over and we are almost a month into 2019 already. As I do every January, I compile and analyze all of the sales in Coconut Grove (per MLS data – which takes me several weeks) over the last year and look at where our community is trending.

As most of you know, I am a Groveite through and through. I met my wife in the Grove, was married in the Grove (St. Hugh), my reception was in the Grove (Villa Woodbine – which sadly may be torn down to make way for an all-boys school), I live in the Grove (North Grove), and I am the Senior Director of Luxury Sales at Douglas Elliman in our Grove office on SW 27th Avenue.


As always, the media loves to report, regardless of ACTUAL market conditions, that the Miami market is failing/falling/crashing/(insert scary language here). Well, the market may be slowing down and stabilizing in certain areas of Miami, but like always, Coconut Grove showed increases in many key pricing indicators in 2018. Here are some takeaways from the 2018 numbers:

  • Total sales volume jumped $37,364,744, from $474,227,625 in 2017, to a whopping $511,592,369 in 2018 – This signifies the first time in Coconut Grove history that sales volume broke the $500M barrier!
  • The average sales price per sq/ft in ALL of the Grove jumped another 3.8% in 2018
  • Center Coconut Grove seemed like the big winner seeing all 4 major pricing indicators rise in 2018: average & median sales prices rose (+10.3% & +9.9%) along with average & median sales price per sq/ft (+10.7% & +3.3%)
  • North & South Grove ($517.90 & $509.04) BOTH averaged over $500 per sq/ft for the first time ever

In 2018, we saw a very significant real estate record set:

  1. 3550 Matheson Avenue became the highest sale in Coconut Grove history when it closed for $19,750,000 on 03/01/2018. The sale also set the record for the highest price-per-square-foot ever paid for a waterview home in the Grove when it closed at $1,791.55 shattering the previous record from 2017’s sale of PH02-N at Grove at Grand Bay which closed at $1,494.02.

A further look back…

In 2013, the average closed sales price per sq/ft for the entire Grove was $314.07. In 2018, that number was $446.51. That is an increase of 42.2% over the past 5 years!

In 2013, the total sales volume for the entire Grove was $406,166,357. In 2018, that number was $511,592,369. That is an increase of 26% over the past 5 years and the first time sales volume ever broke the $500M mark for Coconut Grove!
