South Florida Oceanfront Homes- What’s Selling?

Oceanfront Homes sold in South Florida in 2010


Within the first 8 months of 2010, sales of 16 direct Oceanfront Single Family Homes have been recorded in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade County.   Their purchase price range was $1,180,000 – $12,650,000.

Oceanfront Homes on the Beach are rare and are the smallest portion of available Waterfront Homes.  The vast majority of properties on the Beach are Condos instead of Single Family Homes.    Currently, less than 100 Oceanfront Single Family Homes are listed for sale in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach Counties, with an average entry level price of $3,000,000.  As is typical with Waterfront Properties, the majority of those at entry level pricing are sold for primarily Land value alone and existing Houses on the property are considered to be “Teardowns” or in need of significant renovation.
