Priced at $1,249,000 million in 2015, which was in-line with the pricing and sales for other units in the building at the time, the 788-square-foot, one-bedroom unit #601 at 72 Townsend Street ended up selling for $979,000 in January of 2017.

Offered for rent at $3,695 per month in 2021 and then again in 2022, the asking rent for the South Beach unit in “South Beach’s premier boutique” building with “Bay Bridge and water” views, was reduced to $3,495 early last year and the unit was then listed for sale at $899,000 last month and is now in contract to be sold.

If you think you know the “surging market” for South Beach condos, CAP rates and returns, now’s the time to tell. For those running the numbers at home, the monthly HOA dues for the unit, which comes with a deeded parking spot in the building’s garage, are currently running around $950 per month and the widely misreported index for “San Francisco” condo values is “still up 14 percent!” over the same period of time.

    1. I can, although the rental price was cheaper than the Avalon Ocean Avenue 1 bedroom we rented back in 2018.

  1. The listing site I look at regularly says that Unit 601 is now ‘pending’. I don’t think I “know the market” for South Beach condos, but I’ll guess this closes for $821.5k.
