The Brickell Condo Report for Q3 2021
This Brickell report specifically compares Q3 2020 to Q3 2021 data, providing you with real and actionable market figures. Some quarters are known to inherently outperform others due to seasonal trends, but seeing these striking year-over-year price increases is why we are urging condo owners to explore a potential sale.
The following report uses data collected from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) by using the median sale price per square foot ($SP/SF), instead of the average price per square foot, since the median removes all outliers (extreme highs and lows). The median figure serves to create a more stable and realistic benchmark. We have tailored this report to include newer buildings (2014 or newer), as well as slightly older buildings (2004 or older) to give condo owners a general overview of the current Sellers’ Market.
