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.

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.

How to filter your price range when buying a new home?

Are you planning to buy your first house and don’t know what price range to search for? Or are you only curious about how much is your price-to-income guideline? Well, this was the main questions the study of Hosing Markets and Finance made by the American Enterprise Institute’s Center (A.E.I.) was trying to solve.

Timing is of the essence when buying real estate in Miami

Miami real estate has been following a sequence since the early industry boom in the 2000. This means that if we have arrived at the bottom line, it will have a fast bounce soon.

The whole industry has followed the same pattern, but the ultra-luxury houses’ had shown the most drastic impact.

That is a significant increase of approximately 15% compared to 2016 where the number was only $6.2 billion dollars. Unsurprisingly, most of the foreign buyers are coming from South America.
