Miami Brokers Say There’s An ‘Avalanche’ Of New Residents Incoming

Miami’s red-hot real estate market is about to get even hotter, brokers say, as new residents flock to the area.

Trends that were already in place are now accelerating due to the pandemic, they say.

Sep Niakan, who runs Condo Black Book, said that an avalanche of sales is incoming to the Miami market.

The trigger: work from home policies instituted by companies during the pandemic are now expected to be made permanent.

Employees are already visiting Miami to shop for a permanent home in advance of those announcements, thanks to better weather and lower taxes, he said.

Once those permanent work-from-home policies are announced, the “complete avalanche” will begin. Announcements by companies are expected late this year and in early 2021.

Real estate in the $1 million and up range is already on fire, according to Ana Bozovic of Analytics Miami.

In November 2020, Miami-area condo transaction volume in the $1m+ range was up 85% compared to the same period last year.

Single family transaction volume in the $1m+ category during November was up 127%.

I am not even in the GOP but Trump’s “electio was rigged” brainwash should keep enough bandwagoners to buy in and vote him in for 24 (just my thoughts). It will be VERY hard for Trump to lose that GOP bid.

Trump’s not going to run around a track or run in anything else in 2024. Anytime he doesn’t succeed at something, it’s somebody else fault or something was rigged against him. All these dummies who are out there marching around in this nation for some kind of justice for Trump will believe anything this con man tells them and they’ll even go against someone in the Republican party who disagrees with the Orange Man. I believe there are people in the Republican party who will fight tooth an nail this time to keep Trump far, far away from the Oval office again.

These type of political comments are ridiculously lazy. People are coming here for a variety of reasons, taxes may be one of them. Regardless, their mindsets will change little and they’ll continue to vote whatever party they were voting in the northeast and CA.

There are some office buildings being built in downtown Miami, one of them as the 838 project in Brickell which is a 50 story office tower. That’s gonna bring pretty good paying to high paying jobs to the area already. In addition there’s already new office buildings being built and are in the pipeline in Wynnewood right now. People can go to the offices to work, but if they keep work from home jobs within the companies that move into these offices even after this pandemic, and have more employees than it really looks by offering work from home jobs, That would be good.

lol… I literally left Miami (my hometown) b/c of the lack of decent colleges and didn’t come back because other cities offer much better paying jobs.

The main reason for leaving California/NYC/Chicago isn’t because there are better (or even good) paying jobs in this city. It’s b/c they can work remotely, indefinitely, and/or their current employer is moving its operations/offices to Miami.

Chicago is circling down the drain, high crime, high taxes, people are leaving like never before. Corona just accelerated the exodus.

It will be interesting to see how this dynamic unfolds. San Francisco has one of the highest per capita salaries and Miami has one of the lowest. Assuming the people who are moving to Miami also keep their same salary, they will ultimately begin to raise the cost of living here, to what point, who knows. But Miami was already struggling with a wealth and affordability gap and this will only exacerbate it seems. There will be some residual benefits but for right now it is the transplants that will have the upper hand securing housing and any other local resources. At some point locals who can’t keep up will need to pick up and move, I guess north and west. It will be interesting to see. Miami changes every 10 years or so based on what group is migrating here, so this is nothing new in the evolution of Miami, but I don’t think those of us who grew up here and even those who have been here for the past 10-20 realize how much a change is coming. I believe it could be ultimately major shift on par with the Cuban migration of the 60’s.

ehhhh….Miami should be so lucky to see an uptick in its incomes and job quality….I’ll believe it when I see it

Miami has affordability issues mainly because of its low incomes—living costs aren’t all that expensive for a top ten metro area. You can still get a 1 bedroom condo in the inland suburbs for around $150K, a 3b house for $400-500K. You’d be suprised how close suburban Dallas and Atlanta are to that these days, and forget NYC or LA.

i’m all in for a brain drain to Miami. I’m going to get downvoted but the reason a lot of tech or financial industries are underrepresented here is because of the lack of talent we have available. I do believe this will change as I think our growth rate and public education improvement (hopefully) will play big factors.

Whats coming in a huge way to miami is firesales and foreclosures once you can finally start evicting people in january… brokers are always the loudest right before it caves in pushing those last sales through…

New York will always have a key role in the US economy, but if local politicians their continue to neglect their city to pander to most vocal woke constituents, the middle class individuals who operate business and pay their taxes will start to seek better alternatives. Declining tax base for an already glaringly red balance sheet does not bode well for the long term for NYC. No it’s not going to collapse like Detroit as it’s more diversified, but the too big to fail mentality tends breed complacency.

FYI: eviction proceedings resumed in Miami-Dade last month.

Also from New York. NOT a liberal. Voting against Socialism ( or similar euphemistic equivalents) does not make somebody an uneducated redneck. Many of my Miami friends including , but not limited to Cubans and Venezuelans ( who, btw, live in Brickell and other sections in “the East”), have legitimate concerns about policies coming from the left as many have had first hand experience.
