While one may be tempted to think the market was already booming given all the general media coverage on Miami real estate, the fact is the Key Biscayne condo market 2020 only picked up in Q4. As described in our earlier Key Biscayne 2020/2021 market update released just weeks ago, the Key Biscayne condo market was still a buyers market throughout 2020, with some very hopeful signs towards November, December.

Almost three months into 2021, the speed of the market across different price segments has been abrupt and can be compared to the speed at which Key Biscayne single family homes started being picked up mid 2020 in the midst of COVID as well as lower price segments of the Brickell condo market also in Q1 2020. 60% of the major Key Biscayne Oceanfront buildings we track have less than 6 months of inventory (sellers market definition). However, these measure use annualized sales rates so if we were to use last month sales, many condos on the key have the equivalent of 1-2 month sales. Bottomline, we have little to no inventory to sell.
