Investing in a Miami Rental Property: Is Now Really the Right Time?

Real Estate prices are high and interest rates are low. Home values had a reported 17.2% historic increase last year (which was the highest increase in history), and the demand equaled a decrease in available commercial properties by 28%. When it comes to investing in residential real estate, most people start by looking to buy below market value, assuming they can bring up the property value, flip it, and pocket the difference.  It makes sense, but it is much more difficult to see where the real estate market is undervaluing properties than perusing Zillow (though seeing what properties are renting for and how that changes over time is absolutely vital knowledge).  Instead, it’s much more practical to look at longer-term […]

State of the Market: Fall 2021

Every year the housing market takes a turn. Some years it is a positive turn for sellers and a negative one for buyers while others have it vice versa. That is why real estate experts everywhere adjust their forecast to prepare themselves for what might be coming down the pipeline. While a year-by-year forecast can prove helpful, a quarterly finding can help you more accurately plan for your sale or purchase. Here is the state of the market for fall 2021 in Miami and how it might affect you (this being said, Miami-Dade is a massive county and the market is significantly different city-by-city and neighborhood-by-neighborhood; if you would like a more personalized assessment please don’t hesitate to reach out).
