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 to compete in the rental market?

How to compete in the rental market?

In the past, Miami’s developments were strictly targeted to buyers. Developers were building with the only purpose of selling as many units as possible, but we have seen in the past few years the beginning of a new trend. Miami is becoming more and more a city of renters and even more short term renters. This has pushed high-end units to change their strategy.

In a seasonal city as Miami, units are more attractive if they allow rentals, the shorter the better. For instance, new developments as the Panorama Tower on Brickell, unlikely its older peers, is now seeking to target leasing deals.

Miami’s real estate sales are through the roof!

Whoever tells you that the real estate market is like a roller coaster ride, is obviously not referring to Miami! The Miami Association of Realtor and the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system, had announced the third quarter (Q3) 2018 sales report for Miami’s real-estate. It seems that nothing can stop their winning streak!

For the 27th consecutive quarter, Miami’s houses, condos and single family homes sales surged. Not even Hurricane Irma was able to slowdown the real estate sales growth in Miami.
