There were 117 Miami Beach condos sold in January 2010 with the lowest sale being a pool cabana at Casablanca Condo for $16,000 and the next highest a 1 bedroom condo at Normandy Place Condo (which was a bank owned property).  Now to the good stuff.

Listed for $4,353,000 and sold for $3,482,400 on 1/29/2010

The Continuum needs no introduction - it's 2 towers are the only 2 oceanfront uber luxurious high-rises in the area knows as South of Fifth in South Beach.  This unit was listed on January 13th, 2010 and was under contract by the 17th!  WOW! (but there are not even interior photos of the unit on the MLS, so it was obviously sold before it listed).  Here's the MLS description:

Spacious, large balcony with magnificent views!  Italian kitchen with stainless steel Miele appliances, Subzero refrigerator, granite countertops and marble floors.  Luxury amenities include 24 hr security and valet parking, full-time concierge service, 2 large lagoonpools with pool and beach-side services from patio restaurant.  Three pro-clay tennis courts, 23,000 sf Sporting Club and spa with infinity lap pool!
