— What Makes Miami Real Estate So Popular?

In our Miami real estate market analysis, it’s only fair to discuss its incredible and coveted lifestyle and mention a few reasons why Miami is one of the best places to live, not only in the State of Florida, but in the entire U.S. In fact, Miami is also becoming a top international destination city as well. 

10. Miami is the #1 U.S. city for expats.

— FAQs

Is Miami a buyer or seller market?

At the moment, Miami is navigating towards a balanced market after several cycles in a seller market. Bear in mind the Miami market is unique in so many ways and the high influx of buyers is continuing. For this reason, the expectations are that the housing supply increases by about 20%, and 30,000 more units are to be built in the next 24 to 36 months.

Is the Miami real estate market cooling?

Not really. The Miami housing market will most likely avoid 2023's home purchase price corrections occurring throughout the nation, i.e. Miami prices won’t likely be dropping. The minimum expected growth is +0.8% on an annual level. 

It’s worth keeping in mind however, that 2022 was an absolute record year for the Miami housing market. So, while some may say the Miami real estate market is “cooling,” it’s all relative to the strongest year in the city’s history. So far, 2023 market statistics are stronger than any year before 2023. 

What is the outlook for real estate in Miami?

The future looks bright for the Miami real estate market. With a continuous increase in both the population and property value, Miami is one of the top real estate markets, not just in the U.S., but globally. 

The increase in property value is an astonishing 292% (in the last 25 years) and the prices are far from cooling off in 2023. What is more, the demand keeps rising as both domestic and international buyers are keen on purchasing a second home in one of Florida’s most beautiful cities.
