Miami Mid-Year Update 2013 Market Report

Miami Mid-Year Update 2013

The beat goes on as the Miami real estate market continues to be on the upswing. Inventory continues to drop and the number of sales continue to increase, resulting in price increases.

The shadow inventory finally came onto the market in the first six months of 2013, with an increase in inventory of 30% over the same six months in 2012. These foreclosures primarily impact the under $300,000 market segment. Short sales moved in the opposite direction, with a dramatic 77% reduction in inventory. Overall, these distressed properties only represent 16% of what is available for sale.

New construction is coming on line with new projects being introduced each month, but the question remains: will there be enough resale inventory to keep pace with the demand? In the meantime, expect prices to continue to rise through the rest of 2013.

My favorite piece “The Love Of The Poet” is by far the piece that represents a modern romanticism reflecting how important in our busy world, love is still the key to everything.

Top 20 World’s Most Expensive Real Estate Markets

 

Is South Florida part of the Top 20 World’s Most Expensive Real Estate Markets?

 

 

With Luxury Homes prices in between $4,570 USD and $5,920 USD per square foot in Monaco and Hong Kong why wouldn’t you choose South Florida where square foot price for Luxury Homes in Miami is between $1,300 USD to $1,440 USD? It is after all a third of what prices are in Monaco today.

 

The Knight Frank wealth report said Monaco, Hong Kong and London stand as the Top 3 most expensive market at a Global level. “Demand for Prime property in key locations around the world is likely to remain high as wealth creation, especially in the emerging world thrives… Global demand is rising fast, and the supply of luxury homes remains limited”.

 

Asia-Pacific (Jakarta and Bali), London, New York and Miami had positive news for the Luxury Residential sector in 2012. Overseas investors find Miami/Fort Lauderdale’s luxury market as a safe place to escape from currency, economic, political and security crises in their home countries. “The US luxury markets are now appealing to global investors looking for value opportunities” said The Knight Frank Wealth Report.

 

The rise of the luxury market is the most significant trend of 2012. The growth in the million dollars plus market makes South Florida one of the prime real estate markets in the world. The favorable income tax structure is more attractive than ever to those who want to and are able to relocate.

 

With 30 sales over the $10 million mark in Miami-Dade and Broward County, 2012 was certainly the year of the trophy market in South Florida.

 

Broward Booms as Sales of residential properties in Broward County over $ 1 million increased a whopping 28% in 2012.

 

South Florida is still valued tremendously low as far as dollar per square foot in the worldwide luxury real estate market, yet gains prominence and importance, year after year.

 

The following are the top 20 Most Expensive Real Estate Markets Globally. Data by Knight Frank Report.
