South Florida ultra-luxury real estate sales more than doubled

Ultra-luxury home sales on the rise
South Florida ultra-luxury home sales on the rise.

Since the start of the pandemic, we have seen the demographics of South Florida home buyers vary considerably. This has led to various records being broken due to the amount of people now calling The Sunshine State their home. Looking back at 2021, we can now add ultra-luxury real estate market sales to the record books as well. By definition, properties valued at $10 million dollars or more are considered to be ultra-luxury.

Breaking down the numbers

  • 384 ultra-luxury homes sold in Palm Beach & Miami-Dade counties during 2021 (up from 176 in 2020)
  • Miami-Dade County had 228 ultra-luxury home transactions
  • Palm Beach County had 156 ultra-luxury home transactions
  • Of the 384 transactions, 334 were waterfront or oceanfront properties
  • Of the 384 transactions, 306 were townhouses
  • 20 transactions involved properties valued at more than $40 million (up from 6 in 2020)
  • Overall sales volume for ultra-luxury homes was $7.8 billion in 2021 (up from $3 billion in 2020)


In addition to customary migration patterns, we continue to see robust growth throughout the South Florida housing market. This continued population growth has resulted in steadily active home buyer activity throughout the typically slower winter months. Population growth, tight housing inventory, rising real estate prices and interest rates are all factors driving many buyers into the market now as opposed to the more traditional spring home buying season. Whether you are a seasoned home buyer looking for an ultra-luxury home or a first-time home buyer, we can help. Contact one of our friendly and knowledgeable real estate experts today!
