A Look At Sam Strauch’s Take On Miami Beach Real Estate

Leading into July 2016 the real estate market slowed down. In the last few years the value of real estate in Miami Beach had increased by quite a bit so it was inevitable that eventually the market would stabilize. As more homes come onto the market for sale, and not quite as many buyers in years past, the price of homes has dipped a bit and so is now creating a “buyer’s market” in the region. Currently the median price of a home in Miami Beach is $435,000. Another factor leading to the slowdown is the strong dollar which means fewer foreign buyers.   Related link has the facts.
