As I do every year (and I am a bit late this year), I compile and analyze all of the sales in Coconut Grove (per MLS data – which takes me several weeks) over the previous year and look at where our community is trending. Once again, Coconut Grove outpaced a cooling national real estate market by setting new, all-time records across multiple categories.

I am a Groveite through and through. I met my wife in the Grove 13 years ago, was married in the Grove (St. Hugh), my reception was in the Grove (Villa Woodbine), I have lived in the Grove for the past 13 years, and I am the Executive Director of Luxury Sales at Douglas Elliman in our Grove office at Two CocoWalk. I have put together this report for the past 9 years because I care about the health of our community and helping people understand where the Grove housing market has been and is headed.


The overall market in South Florida exploded in 2021 and continued in 2022 due to an enormous influx of buyers from New York, Chicago and L.A. because of our favorable tax rates, Covid and “the way that Florida is being run” – (that last one being the most popular answer when asking buyers “why Florida?”).

The Coconut Grove real estate market had increased year-over-year for 8 consecutive years until it exploded in 2020 and then basically shattered every metric ever tabulated in 2021…and then did it again in 2022 by most metrics. Here are some takeaways from the 2022 numbers:

  • Total sales volume in ALL of the Grove fell sharply from 2021’s record number of $1,452,047,154 to $855,771,046 in 2022; BUT…
  • The average sales price in ALL of the Grove set another all-time high at $1,824,672 , an 88.5% jump from $968,237 in 2019 (pre-Covid).
  • The average sales price per square foot in ALL of the Grove also set another new, all-time high at $813.28, a 27.8% jump over the previous high of $636.63 in 2021 and completely destroying the pre-Covid 2019 high of $431.92 by a staggering 88.3%.
  • South Grove was the first neighborhood to EVER break the $1,000 per sq/ft average when it hit $1,042.48 in 2022!
  • Average days on market in ALL of the Grove hit its lowest number ever with properties only being on the market for 48 days before going under contract.

Coconut Grove Real Estate – Months of Supply (February 2023)

Months of supply means how long it would take for the market to absorb all real estate, if no additional real estate came to market. This stat determines whether it is a Buyer’s Market or Seller’s Market. When looking at statistics, having a 6-month supply or less favors sellers while more than 6 months favors buyers.

Single-Family Homes: 8.3-Month Supply (Buyer’s Market)

83 Currently Available
60 Sold in Past 6 Months

Condos: 5-Month Supply (Slight Seller’s Market)

62 Currently Available
75 Sold in Past 6 Months

Townhomes: 5.2-Month Supply ( Slight Seller’s Market)

20 Currently Available
23 Sold in Past 6 Months
