Surge in Listings and Sales Activity for Priciest Homes During 2021

In the first four months of 2021 through April, the US market for homes prices at $50M has exploded.

Increased wealth among the top 1% has been fueled by few, if any, other spending options over the past yearn due to the pandemic.  Focusing and appreciating what a home can be has taken center stage.

$50M+ Home Market in 2021 Far Ahead of Previous Years

Already in the first four months of 2021, sellers nationwide had listed 30 $50M+ homes and buyers had already purchased eight of them, according to Redfin.

New listings of $50M+ homes were up monthly from 4 in February 2021 to 10 new listings in April 2021.  Sales of $50M+ homes were up from zero in February 2021 to six in April 2021.

Particular Hotspots

Particular hotspots for $50M+ homes during 2021 have been Los Angeles and South Florida.

According to Daryl Fairweather, Redfin’s chief economist, “Although we’ve been in a recession and a pandemic, it hasn’t really impacted the really wealthy.  If you’re a really wealthy person you can’t spend your money on what you would usually.  The wealthy have lots of money, but not a lot of options for spending.”

Particularly for the super wealthy, property portfolio shuffling has been a top priority, according to Fairweather.  Fairweather said, “All these ultra-luxury features (tennis courts, home theaters, etc.) are even more desirable during the pandemic…” and have spurred record-breaking completion for “…more and more.”
