2022UpperFloridaKeysMarketInsights ALOOKBACK LBy:CarolynAmbler,Realtor
ooking back at five-year trends provides data to speculate upon how the Upper Florida Keys real estate market will perform in 2023. Average sold prices for residential property are at an all-time high In the Upper Keys, the average sold price approached $1.3m in 2022; an increase of 130% from 2021, despite inventory trending down. Inventory in 2022 was down 35% year over year Although there is reduced inventory available to purchase; the current number of homes for sale is similar to prepandemic inventory levels in 2018 and 2019. Decreased inventory did indeed lead to less sales; almost 34% fewer properties were sold in the Upper Keys in 2022 compared to 2021.
Ultra-luxury and trophy property sales are the major influences for elevated average sold prices In 2022, there were five sales over $10 million dollars, with two of these sales from American Caribbean Real Estate; whereas in 2021, there were two sales over the $10m mark Last year, the highest waterfront residential sale was $16,500,000 and the highest non-waterfront home sold for an unprecedented $2,700,000.
In the rising mortgage interest rate environment, many buyers are taking a more relaxed position when making offers This is most likely a temporary market condition until buyers adjust their mindset and stop fixating on past rates; realizing that current rates are historically typical. Even with increased interest rates and higher average sold prices, transactions continue at a steady pace. Days on market are significantly lower than in the past five years and averaged a very modest 48 days from list to contract in 2022.
The overall 2022 sold volume in Key Largo, Tavernier and Islamorada totaled over $900 million and was only off 15% from the surging sales in 2021; this is attributed to higher average sales prices
Currently, with slightly more than five (5) months inventory listed for sale, the real estate market in the Florida Keys is balanced or normalized Over six months of inventory would be the start of a buyer's market, less than five months and it is considered a seller's market. Based on this neutral absorption rate and continued buyer demand for homes and investment property, prices are expected to remain stable in 2023. Interest rates and lower inventory may impact overall sales volume, especially at the lower end of this market, under $1m sold price. The outlook is optimistic for a steady and solid real estate market, especially for ultra-luxury sales in the coming year

MarrVelous Pet Rescues (MPR) was officially formed in April of 2007 as a 501c3 non-profit and housed at the American Caribbean north office up until the end of 2021, when the rescue acquired its new home. Founded by many agents in the office it became apparent to us that we could use our expertise of finding homes for people to also find homes for animals. Our company is filled with REALTORS and staff who are passionate about animals which was a good fit for the MPR mission and provided a service to our community and most importantly the animals. Today the Board is filled with others from the community, and we have tremendous support from individuals and businesses. The new Rescue space which was purchased in 2021 operates as a virtual shelter, where all animals still live in foster homes. New community programs are always being added like dog training, pack walks, Yappy Hours at local restaurant supporters, and now our very own Spay & No Balls Clinic to assist in the spay and neuter of MPR rescue animals. We have had the privilege to have aided in the placement of over 1500 animalsduringthepast15years!

I’ve been a resident of south Florida my entire life, and have fond memories of boating, diving, swimming and fishing all throughout the Florida Keys with family and friends. Spending time with family and friends is something we can all appreciate; but those of you who live in and or visit the Florida Keys also appreciate its natural beauty, clear waters and unique experiences.
However, did you know that 5.4 nautical miles off of Key Largo sits a one of a kind underwater (Habitat) laboratory owned by Florida International University (FIU) called Aquarius? As the Operations Director for FIU’s Medina Aquarius Program speak to a lot of locals and frequent visitors to the Florida Keys. When people ask me what I do for a living and I tell them, I’m always surprised at the typical response; “Aquarius? An underwater laboratory? What’s that I’ve never heard of it?” I take great pride in this opportunity to make people aware of this iconic structure that has played a vital role in supporting research and public education about our oceans
Aquarius has a long and prestigious history of conducting undersea research since it was first deployed at Conch Reef in Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary waters back in
FIU Aquarius Program
1993. Aquarius is 46 feet long, 10 feet in diameter and weighs 82- tons. It sits on a 120-ton baseplate in 60 feet of seawater. During normal operations, Aquarius houses four researchers (Aquanauts) and two (Habitat) technicians. The technicians facilitate the research by overseeing diving operations, monitoring onboard life support systems, pressurization and decompression. Aquarius is logistically supported by a team of highly skilled professional divers who are ready to respond in case of an emergency and a 33-foot diameter discuss buoy (Life Support Buoy), which supplies electricity, breathing air and communication with the land base.
I consider myself to be very lucky to be part of this historic program, and would like to thank our extremely talented and hardworking staff for helping me continue to make the Medina Aquarius Program Possible.Roger Garcia CHT-ADMIN, DMT, CMA FIU Diving Safety Officer Operations Manager Aquarius Reef Base Islamorada Fl. 33036
