Which Miami neighborhoods made it to Forbes Most Expensive ZIP Codes List?

By: Ines Hegedus-Garcia on November 19, 2015

Fisher Island is no stranger to Forbes’ 2015 list of America’s Most Expensive ZIP Codes, on the contrary, Fisher Island has been a regular participant in previous years. This year, 2 other Miami neighborhoods made it to the infamous list.

Fisher Island - America's Most Expensive Zip Codes by Forbes

America’s Most Expensive ZIP Codes – Methodology

Forbes has worked with the housing market data provider Altos Research on this list for several years. Our ranking is based on asking prices rather than closed sales. We believe the former is in many ways is a better barometer of the current market — the sample size for sales prices is smaller and the data is older given the time it takes for transactions to close or become public.

Altos looked at prices of single-family homes and condos in 28,500 ZIPs (which covers 95 percent of the U.S. population), calculating a median, rolling average for the 90-day period ending Oct. 9. For each ZIP code, prices are weighted according to the mix of housing stock available in the market.

#6 – Fisher Island 33109

Fisher Island 33109 - Most Expensive Zip Codes in America by Forbes

Miami’s Fisher Island has one of the highest per-capita incomes in the U.S., so it’s not surprising that it also has some of the most expensive real estate.

Median home price:  $5,560,077
Inventory: 63
Average days on the market: 147

#28 – Coral Gables 33156

Coral Gables 33156 - America's Most expensive ZIP codes

Median home price: $3,861,604
Inventory: 54
Average days on the market: 258

#35 – Coral Gables 33143

Coral Gables 33143 - America's Most Expensive Zipcodes

Median home price: $3,861,604
Inventory: 47
Average days on the market: 117

Although it’s great news that Miami makes it to the top 50 list, there’s something about this list that favors those tiny enclaves around the country.  There are many zip codes in Dade-county that contain several cities/neighborhoods and therefore don’t make the list because of the disparity in price ranges.  It’s a zoning and urban planning issue and we should not misconstrue this information to mean that the most expensive homes are only in these areas.  Like everything in life, take this information with a grain of salt.


How is The Keystone Point Real Estate Market Doing? October 2015

By: Ines Hegedus-Garcia on November 16, 2015

Keystone Point Real Estate by Miamism.comKeystone Point Real Estate Market Report

There are currently 34 Keystone Point homes for sale (compared to 35 in September):

  • Highest priced listing: $5,290,000 (open bay Mediterranean estate located at 12485 Keystone Island Dr)
  • Lowest priced listing: $495,000 – 3/2 with 1,412 sq.ft. at 1965 Alamanda Dr
  • Pending Sales (properties under contract): 7 (compared to 4 in September)
  • Closed sales in October 2015: 1 (compared to 7 in September)

The Keystone Point home sold in October was for the dry-lot property located at 1850 Keystone Blvd.  It was a 3 bedroom/ 2 bathroom home with 1,720 sq.ft. of living space and a 10,198 sq.ft. lot.  It was listed in August for $749,000, was under contract in 2 weeks and closed for $735,000 ($427/SF)

Seeing only one sale last month may lead you to believe the market has slowed down, but the problem is the lack of inventory.  Today’s educated and discerning buyer is willing to pay a bit more, but they are looking for good floor plans that make sense, and homes in good, move-in condition.

Keep in mind that the average selling price per square foot in Keystone Point in September for dry-lot (non-waterfront) homes was $336. (compared to the one sale in October for $427/SF).

Past averages in Keystone Point are as follows:

  • September $455
  • August $414
  • July $396
  • June $411
  • first 1/2 of 2015 $438
