Here are South Florida’s 10 priciest resi deals of 2022

South Florida’s residential market may have slowed in 2022, but trophy mansions remained a hot commodity. From Larry Ellison to Ken Griffin, billionaires kept on buying in South Florida, setting records for single-family home and condo sales across Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.

The top 10 deals ranged from a princess’ $45 million sale of her waterfront Palm Beach home to the $173 million trade of a 16-acre compound in Manalapan, a wealthy enclave north of Delray Beach.


Properties in Palm Beach, where inventory remains tight and pricing high, dominated The Real Deal’s ranking, which is based on property records and the Multiple Listing Service. A select few agents also participated in most of the deals, including Lawrence Moens and Christian Angle.

These were the 10 priciest home sales recorded in South Florida this year:

Larry Ellison drops $173M on Manalapan estate

In June, Larry Ellison, the billionaire co-founder s ...

Apollo-linked entity sells oceanfront Palm Beach mansion for $66M

One of the biggest South Florida residential sales of the year closed just under the wire.

In an off-market deal, an entity tied to private equity giant Apollo Global Management sold an oceanfront Palm Beach estate for $66 million — nearly twice what it traded for 18 months ago.


Sunshine Home 5 LLC, a Delaware entity, sold the mansion at 6 Via Los Incas to another Delaware corporation, TT 47th LLC, records show.

Mortgage documents and a construction contract link the selling entity to Frank Marra, managing director of finance at Apollo. Marra signed for a $33.6 million loan on the property from Bank of America in September, according to public records.

New York-based Apollo, which had $523 billion in assets under management as of Sept. 30, was one of many financial firms that expanded in South Florida last year, opening offices in Brickell and West Palm Beach.

The 0.6-acre Via Los Incas estate sold for $35.4 million in June of last year, pro ...

7 Staging Tips to Help Your Listings Sell Faster

Staging a home for sale may require some extra presale prep, but the time and money reap plenty of rewards. The majority of buyers' agents (82%) said that staging makes it easier for buyers to visualize a property as their future home, according to a survey by the National Association of Realtors. Nearly a quarter (23%) of buyers' and sellers' agents said that a staged home received an offer 1% to 5% higher than a similar home that hadn't been staged and 18% of sellers' agents said the value of a staged home was 6% to 10% higher. In addition, 31% of agents said that staging decreased the days a home spent on the market.

Among the places to stage, living rooms and kitchens are the most popular, followed by the master bedroom, dining room, and home office. Revive provides professional guidance and services to help you and your clients decide which areas to stage before a sale to help buyers see themselves living in a home.
While each home is different, these seven tips offer a startie ...
