2020 Coconut Grove Real Estate Values | A Look Back at 2019 Statistics

Facebook Twitter Google Plus Instagram YouTube

 
As I do every 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. The start to 2020 has been super busy for me, so it took a bit longer to compile and now disseminate all of the data…my apologies for the delay.

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 has recently avoided re-zoning to make way for an all-boys school), I have lived in the Grove for the past 10 years, and I am the Senior Director of Luxury Sales at Douglas Elliman in our Grove office at Two CocoWalk. I have put together this report for the past 7 years because I care about the health of our community and helping people understand where the Grove housing market has been and is headed.


When the media/news outlets report on real estate stats, often it is on a ‘macro’ level – speaking about a city or county – as opposed to looking at the ‘micro’ level – looking more narrowly at neighborhoods and communities. They do this because it is just easier to pull statistics on a larger scale, but usually skews numbers by lumping different areas together, which is never good with real estate stats. Ask yourself this, if you were going to sell your house, would you care what sold two towns over, 5 miles away…or would you care about sales on your block or within your immediate neighborhood?

The overall market in South Florida is slowing down and stabilizing in certain areas of Miami, and the same is true for Coconut Grove. Although the Coconut Grove market has increased year-over-year for the past 7 consecutive years, price trend indicators showed a correction in 2019. Here are some takeaways from the 2019 numbers:

  • Total sales volume fell $35,357,693, from an all-time high of $511,592,369 in 2018 to $476,234,676 in 2019 – This signifies that total sale volume has finally leveled off after 7 years of increases.
  • The median sales price in ALL of the Grove jumped another 3.1% in 2019.
  • West Coconut Grove seemed like the big winner seeing all 4 major pricing indicators rise in 2019: average & median sales prices rose (+13.4% & +26.8%) along with average & median sales price per sq/ft (+2.1% & +1.9%).
  • Coconut Grove hit 492 total sales in 2019, setting a new all-time high.

In 2019, we saw another Coconut Grove real estate record set:

  1. 2131 S. Bayshore Dr. set the new, all-time price-per-square-foot record when it closed at $942.86 per sq/ft, becoming the highest such sale EVER for an off-water home in Coconut Grove. This sale shattered the previous record of $818.09 held by 3503 Banyan Circle in Camp Biscayne, which closed on 05/22/2017.

Coconut Grove Real Estate – Months of Supply

With the market changing, I thought this would be a good time to add a specific category that helps describe if a market favors buyers or sellers – months of supply. Months of supply means how long it would take for the market to absorb all real estate, if no additional real estate came on the market. When looking at statistics, having a 6-month supply or less favors sellers while more than 6 months favors buyers.

Single-Family Homes: 9-Month Supply (Slight Buyer’s Market)
148 Currently Available
104 Sold in Past 6 Months

Condos: 15-Month Supply (Buyer’s Market)
221 Currently Available
91 Sold in Past 6 Months

Townhomes: 6-Month Supply (Stable – Seller’s Market)
54 Currently Available
52 Sold in Past 6 Months

*Though 2 out of 3 show a buyer’s market, all 3 are the lowest of any area that I keep stats on in Miami-Dade County. For comparison, Miami Beach currently has a 24-month supply of condos and a 30-month supply of single-family homes.


Below, I have laid out all of the 2019 Coconut Grove real estate statistics and then a year-over-year comparison of 2019 versus 2018.
