Pinecrest Florida Real Estate and More...: Luxury Home Seller - Luxury Home Buyer

Luxury Home Seller - Luxury Home Buyer


Today I attended the Coldwell Banker Previews Luxury Symposium; a training and educational event for the luxury property specialists.  I thought the following profiles were interesting.

The Luxury Home Seller

  • They’ve owned their current home for 8.8 years vs. 6 years.
  • The majority are under 55 and 89% are married.
  • Often self-made (6% inherited 20% or more of their net worth).
  • Most are top executives, self-employed or business owners.
  • They are keenly aware of what it takes to be successful and are typically hands-on with strong viewpoints.
  • They trust their own instincts, are driven to succeed.
  • They maintain a middle-class outlook and are pragmatic toward money and investments.

The Luxury Home Buyer

  • 31% are cash buyers
  • 35% are retired (Millionaires)
  • 36% are business owners (Millionaires)
  • 67% are 35-55
  • 88% are married
  • Their most important home feature is a “Designer Kitchen”

In Miami-Dade County, a luxury home is a property over one million dollars; last year 34% of the sales in Pinecrest Florida were for over $1,000,000.
