Million $ Homes Purchased in 2010

Million Dollar Sales Market Report

Within the first 4 months of 2010 (January 1, 2010 – April 30, 2010), 77 Single Family Homes were purchased in Broward County in a purchase price range of $1,000,000 and over, as recorded in the MLS* and Property Tax Records. 

  • The 77 Homes were purchased in a price range of $1,000,000 – $10,800,000 (purchase prices, NOT list prices). 
  • 46 of the 77 sales are indicated to have been Cash purchases, including the $10,800,000 sale
  • 8 of the Homes were listed as Short Sales and 2 were listed as Bank Owned Foreclosures (Short Sales and Foreclosures ARE NOT the majority of Luxury Home sales)
  • Of the 77 Homes purchased, 44 are Waterfront Ocean Access properties located East of I-95
  • Of the Cities where the Homes are located, Ft. Lauderdale had the highest number of Sales
  • During the same timeframe (January 1, 2010 – April 30, 2010), 4,055 Single Family Homes in Broward County were purchased for prices under $1,000,000  
  • Regarding Ocean acccess Waterfront property, the Term “Luxury” is relative because buying a Home for $1,000,000 doesn’t necessarily mean you bought a Luxury Home.  Land value is a SIGNIFICANT part of the price with Ocean access property and there are Homes in some Waterfront Communities purchased for $1,000,000 and above that were priced primarily at land value ALONE, where the Homes are considered “Teardowns”–Homes that need to be completely remodeled and updated or torn down and replaced.
