Miami is the Second Best Buyers’ Market in the U.S.

Miami is the Second Best Buyers’ Market in the U.S.

Mar 02, 2017 March 02, 2017

I’ve been talking about how we’re in one of the hottest long-term investor and second home markets since forever. I have also been talking about chinks in Miami’s armor in the short-term and how buyers have more power to negotiate now than the past few years (i.e. a buyer’s market). Now, a latest market report from Zillow has confirmed Miami as the Second Best Buyers’ Market in the country!

The report ranked 35 of the country’s biggest housing markets on the basis of a year-over-year change in price. With 11.5% of all listings featuring a price cut in the Miami Metro area in the last year, we’re placed just behind Baltimore. So, if you’ve been looking to make a move to Miami, get a bargain of a second home, or simply add to your investment portfolio, now is the time!

TheRealDeal further revealed that Lauderdale by the Sea, Hallandale, North Bay Village, Aventura and Miami Shores are your best bets for bargain hunting. Try North Bay Village 360 Condo in North Bay Village, or Beachwalk in Hallandale. Aventura has maximum condo choice with the likes of Williams Island 1000 to 7000, Biscayne Cove, Turnberry on the Green, Echo Aventura and more. Single-family homes dominate Miami Shores.

For buyers, I’d say make hay while the sun shines. However, for the seller side I’d say there’s still hope. Small value additions or improvements to your property can help it stand out from the rest in a very competitive market.

For more tips and suggestions on how to ace this buyers’ market, I’m just a phone call away - no matter if you’re a seller or a buyer!

Opinions and Advice Top Tips on Moving from a House to a Condo
Calling all empty-nesters, downsizers and warm-weather seekers! We know how appealing Miami’s beaches, balmy breezes and year-round good vibes can be. Couple that with some common life transitions, whether your kids are off to college or you’re looking to have an easier lifestyle, and you’ve got the perfect recipe to transition from a home to a condo. So if you’re just thinking about moving from a house to a condo, or have already decided, here are a few useful pointers. Who Says You Have to Downsize? The first thing that often comes to mind when you sell your house and decide to move to a condo is “Will I have to downsize?” In Miami, it may not be all that necessary to go smaller if you consider some of the many expansive, ultra-spacious condos that have sprung up. Many two- and three-bedroom condos are often almost as spacious as homes, and come with many more amenities, such gyms and spas, restaurants, concierge services and more. So, even if you do have to downsize to a condo,...

Indeed, being able to do your part, even in the slightest of ways, can be quite gratifying. So why not live it?!  Living in an eco-friendly residence is one of the top priorities of an eco-conscious lifestyle. So how can you tell if a condo is green?

New 2020 FHA Loan Limits in Miami, more FHA Loan Options
Real Estate News New 2020 FHA Loan Limits in Miami, more FHA Loan Options
The news for first-time condo or home buyers wanting low down payments keeps getting better. The new 2020 FHA loans have higher limits that, in combination with a law revision that went into effect last October, allow buyers to purchase a new condo with just 3.5 - 10% down, depending on credit score, and sometimes more flexible loan terms than conventional loans.  The revised policy allows for certain individual condo units to be eligible for FHA loans, even if the condo building is not FHA approved.  FHA loans are federally insured mortgages, and because they are insured, lenders provide excellent rates for first-time buyers and those with no or less-than-perfect credit histories. What’s even better is that the FHA loan amounts have increased. Miami-Dade’s 2020 FHA maximum loan limit for single families (including condos) has gone up to $373,750 from last year’s $356,500, almost a 5% increase over last year. 2020 FHA Loan Limits in Miami-Dade County (includes areas...
