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 developers choosing Wynwood as the perfect spot for their co-living projects?

Why are developers choosing Wynwood as the perfect spot for their co-living projects?

Wynwood has been transforming from a tourist attraction to an actual innovative living area. With amazing business ideas, this neighborhood is now home of preconstruction of co-living apartment buildings with world-class shared amenities and service which has been extremely appealing to more than one public.

One of the main developments taking place in Wynwood right now is the $46 million /1.6-acre terrain purchase at 2431 NW Second Avenue in Miami. Developed by Property Markets Group (PMG) in partnership with Greybrook, this project will be an 8-story mixed-use development with retail spaces, hotel rooms, rooftop bar, restaurant, and over 220 rental apartments from which 30% will be co-living spaces where tenants will have the possibility of renting by room and have some world-class shared common areas. This project promises to be similar to X Miami, the 32-story Hotel & Residences in Downtown.

Why are domestic property buyers taking their time?

Why are domestic property buyers taking their time?

The New Federal Tax Law signed at the end of 2017 by president Trump has clearly created a new trend of Tax Refugees trying to escape the high taxes of northern cities, to the shiny and tax privileged Miami. The most affected ones are the wealthy property investors after the law reinforced a deduction for state and local property taxes at $10,000. However, this doesn’t mean that these buyers are in a rush for changing residency and moving out to Florida.

This story has been all over the news, with shocking headlines it might have been misinterpreted as a drastic and radical movement that was happening from one day to the other. Nevertheless, this is not precisely the reality.

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.
