BY Michael Light / On March 2, 2022

At a time when inventory in Miami is at an all-time low and demand is at an all-time high, there could be no better timing of a flux of pre-construction projects on the horizon. With all of the people flocking to South Florida from New York, Connecticut, California and Illinois, leaving a depleted supply of available inventory, developers see this as the perfect time to start marketing their new developments. And, they are being proven right…these new construction buildings are selling at a velocity never-before-seen in Miami, it is seriously unbelievable! But, there are 9 condo buildings below that have launched within the past 6 months that still have amazing opportunities.

The 9 new condo developments below offer different price points in varying neighborhoods…for those looking for an affordable pied-a-terre to an expensive beachfront condo and a mix in between.

If you are interested in a private presentation of any of the new construction condos below, please contact Michael Light, Broker Associate and Executive Director of Luxury Sales at Douglas Elliman Real Estate and a member of the elite Sports and Entertainment Division. Michael is an expert at navigating the pre-construction condo market in Miami and the beaches and has been for more than 12 years. Buying pre-construction condos is very different than buying properties that are already built, so it is important to work with someone who is knowledgeable in this area of expertise.
