Is the Miami-Dade housing “bubble” about to deflate?

Is the Miami-Dade housing “bubble” about to deflate?

The current state of America’s housing market raises a lot of questions. Professionals and users seem concerned about the Real Estate market. Housing prices are rising faster, higher than ever. Today’s situation is the result of many factors combined, but the pandemic definitely triggered the whole industry. In fact, the Covid-19 situation lasted long enough to create lifestyle changes. For example, the impact of societal behavior pushed more millennials toward homeownership and families to get a bit further from big cities.

Why Millennials don’t want to live in Miami?

Why Millennials don’t want to live in Miami?

According to a study from SmartAsset, in the past 3 years, Millennials (people between the ages of 20 up to 34) are moving out of Miami. This has created a negative net migration of this population group, meaning that more millennials are moving out of the city, compared to the ones moving in.

COVID-19 and Miami real estate? So far, so good…

COVID-19 and Miami real estate? So far, so good…

It seems strange and unreal that real estate hasn’t shown a dramatic slow down in sales due to the Coronavirus crisis, but that is exactly the case for Miami-Dade County. Real estate hasn’t suffered as much as most of us thought it will. Pending contracts keep converting into closed sales and sales keep increasing month to month. With 465 closed sales of single-family homes in the first half of March and 557 closed condos, there was a 4.5% and 14.1% increase respectively compared to the first 2 weeks of February.

How Miami’s population swap is affecting real estate?

How Miami’s population swap is affecting real estate?

Anyone would agree that trying to find a Miamian in Miami is getting harder every day. You may think it is only you, but actually, more foreigners and local refugees are flying down to Miami and are forcing locals to find new cities to establish.

About 58,000 Floridians are moving out of their hometowns to other states, while 94 outsiders are coming to Florida daily. This loss of Locals is mainly due to a non-stop increase in real estate prices and to tax law reforms.

Why are Foreigners disregarding the U.S. real estate?

Why are Foreigners disregarding the U.S. real estate?

Foreign buyers in the U.S. have dropped by half in 2019 compared to the previous two years. Only in 2019 compared to 2018 there was a decrease of -36% in residential real estate, foreigners only spent $78 billion in 2019 compared to $121 billion in 2018.

Fewer foreigners buying residential homes in the US has pushed a decrease in listing prices. With lots of inventory and no buyers to fill them up, the market has switched from a seller to a buyer’s market. It is shocking the magnitudes of the drop as we have reached the lowest level of foreign residential investment since 2013.

Why are stilts houses the new trend in Miami?

Why are stilts houses the new trend in Miami?

It’s not the first time we mention how climate weather is affecting Miami’s landscape. In our article “Miami’s great initiatives to combat climate change” we explained how Miami’s local government is developing new ways to reduce the long-term risk of flooding and stabilize the region’s economy.  This time I wanted to explore a little deeper one innovative development that is reducing the flooding risk and is creating a cool trend at the same time!

Why New Yorkers aren’t thinking twice before moving to Miami?

Why New Yorkers aren’t thinking twice before moving to Miami?

We’ve been writing about how the Tax Cut and Jobs acted signed by Trump in 2017, has made Miami an investment paradise for Tax Refugees (wealthy buyers investing in South Florida looking for a tax break). New York has been one of the best examples of high tax immigration to the sunshine state. As a consequence, Florida is now the 3rd most populous state in the country.

However, this is not the only reason why people are moving to Miami and why the population has almost doubled since 1990. It seems logical for hard-working New Yorkers to think about their retirement and do the math of how long would their money last with the incredibly expensive lifestyle of the Empire State city compared to Miami.

How the Miami River has flourished?

How the Miami River has flourished?

It is known that all great cities have been built along rivers. New York, Paris, London, Chicago, are just a few examples. It would be impossible to say it is just a coincidence! There a lot of riverfront advantages that have helped the commercial developments of cities. The half-mile long Miami River is not the exception. Miami was meant to be one of those big metropolises.

The 5.5-mile long Miami River is one of the most unique and authentic features that characterize Miami nowadays. It is so hard to think that it hasn’t always been this way, but it is actually the case. In 1950 the Miami River had a really bad reputation as everyone considered it like a cesspool. It was the last city in the U.S that pumped sewage into the river. It was only used for hosting cargo ships and marine repairs. Nowadays the story is completely different.

Foreign investors are back in town!

Foreign investors are back in town!

Foreign buyers have been the #1 buyers of South Florida real estate for more than a decade. However, for the past few years, there was a tremendous decrease in Latin American buyer’s activity due to inflation and unstable local governments. However, according to the Profile of International Home Buyers Report of 2018, there was a rose of 23% of foreign purchase activity in 2018 compared to 2017. Out of those foreign buyers, Brazilians are in the top of the list.
