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 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.

Miami is more than just a beach town!

Miami is more than just a beach town!

For the past 10 years, Miami has been facing a speedy cultural development that hasn’t been fully followed by the rest of the World. That is why people improperly think that Miami is not a “serious business city” where you can actually go other than on vacation.

Miami is not only a “cool” vacationing location anymore. A strong cultural identity has been created and “developed” in the last decade. As a citizen of Miami, I have to say that I’ve noticed the whole path that Miamians have been following for the past decade. When I imagine what is Miami now, I have a large list of characteristics that top my head. Art, sports, entertainment, business, food, transportation, and those are just a few to mention. Nonetheless, that is not everyone’s opinion.
