More than 80 luxury condo resales - with a minimum asking price of $3 million - are actively available on the market in South Beach at an average of nearly $2,455 per square foot, according to the data.

The completed luxury condo resales do not reflect any deals that that may have been transacted without being marketed on the Multiple Listing Service.

It is important to note there are various stages to a residential real estate transaction in South Florida.

A transaction begins when a property is made available for sale and ends when a title is conveyed from one party to another party as a result of the recording of a deed with the local government. 

As part of the process, a property typically goes under contract and into a due diligence phase by which a deal can be canceled.  

The CondoVultures.com new condo sales report is based on completed transactions where a deed is recorded and taxes paid as a result of the sale.
