RealEstate Mega Moves

Luxury Real Estate's Shifting Landscape in 2024

2024 has brought significant shifts to the luxury real estate market. While some regions are seeing mega-mansions sit on the market with eye-popping price drops, others are witnessing a surge in demand, driving prices to new heights.  Let's dive into the current state of the luxury real estate market, exploring both the bargains and the booming sectors.

Not all luxury markets are thriving in 2024. Some areas that were once hotbeds for mega mansion sales have been experiencing cooling trends for the past few years,

Los Angeles

Several mega mansions have seen significant price reductions, with some listings slashing tens of millions of dollars off their asking prices. This is due in part to a surplus of inventory and changing buyer preferences.

Notably in 2020 the "One Bel Air", a massive 105,000 square foot mansion, once listed for $500 million USD, has undergone multiple price cuts and was recently listed for auction with a starting bid of $141 million. "The Chartwell" from $350 million USD down to 155 million, the "Opus Beverley Hills" went from 100 million down to 50 million, however, it's thought that only after auctioning off the existing art collection were the owners able to achieve the 50 million price tag.

New York City

The luxury condo market in Manhattan has softened, leading to price adjustments and longer days on market.


While still a coveted destination, some high end properties have seen price cuts in response to a more cautious buyer pool.

Where are the prices heating up in 2024 and why?

In contrast, certain regions are experiencing unprecedented demand for luxury properties, driving prices upward,


The influx of high net worth individuals and the allure of a favorable tax environment have made Miami's luxury market scorching hot. Waterfront mansions and new developments are commanding top dollar.


The tech boom and a growing reputation as a lifestyle destination have fueled Austin's luxury market. Modern estates and hilltop villas are seeing significant appreciation.


The perennial favorite for mountain retreats remains in high demand, with limited inventory and low interest rates pushing prices to record levels.
