Net Inflow Of New Residents Into Miami In January Doubled Compared To 2021

Interest in moving to Miami continues to remain higher than anywhere else in the U.S., according to a report last week by Redfin.

Redfin’s Net Inflow Index, which measures the number of users who are searching to move into an area versus leave, ranked Miami on top once again in January 2022.

Miami has been at the top of Redfin’s index through the third and fourth quarter of 2021, and now into 2022.

Of those looking to move to Miami, New York was the number one source destination for potential new residents.

For the month of January 2022, Redfin said their Net Inflow index ranked Miami with 10,158 users, compared to 4,954 in January 2021 – more than double.

Phoenix and Tampa ranked second and third.

San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York were the three cities with the most outflow (San Francisco is seeing the most outflow by far). The number one destination for those leaving New York was Miami.

Last year I sold my NYC condo downtown for $3M. I bought a townhouse uptown in Harlem for $1.5M (spent $1M more to renovate it) and a $500K condo in Park West in front of FTX Arena. Now I can live in both cities and the monthly costs are still lower than what I used to spend living in SoHo. COVID created a ton of opportunities for many and Miami become a hot spot for many New Yorkers like me. I love it here🎉

The apartment I bought in Park West did cost $500K but if you placed it in SoHo it would have been probably $5M as it is 1,300 sq/ft with all the bells and whistles of a luxury condo living, doorman, pools, gym, etc. So as it might appear to you that I downsized, in reality the Miami condo beats my ex-SoHo condo hands down.

Plus, I now own a townhouse in Manhattan in Harlem, which is an amazing home in the middle of the city.

This was an upgrade and not a downgrade😉

Harlem is not the middle of the city

Anonymous

It actually is. Central Park is in the middle of the city and Harlem starts from around Central park and extends to upper Manhattan. What we call “Midtown” is actually not in the middle of the city, it’s just below the georaphical middle of the city. Manhattan goes from 1st Street to 220th Street so the middle is anything surrounding 110th Street…

Harlem used to be bad in the 70s or 80s but for the past 20 years it changed a lot. Since COVID it changed even faster as many people moved back to the city from Brooklyn and Queens. Harlem now has the best value in Manhattan and also the nicest homes. There a ton of luxury buildings too but if you can afford it, get you a townhouse, that’s the quintessential of luxury in NY and yes, they can sell as high as $100M but surely you won’t find any bargain like you find in Harlem.

With that said though, this site is about Miami and I LOVE my condo here. I just wish for a subway system to come soon or the Metromover to reach the whole city. I got a car but I hate driving unless I’m driving out of the city.

They believed some out of town people with a gambling interest here that they could build a Monorail system for X amount of dollars and the county will just pay them X amount of money every month for it. Then we were told the price of it doubled before they even put a shovel in the ground.

If the taxpayers of MiamiDade are going to pay for it anyway, why not just extend the Metromover which will be cheaper?

That is so untrue! Harlem is the most beautiful neighborhood in Manhattan, your view of it so old. We have famous people living in Harlem too and I am sure they could live anywhere. We have many Columbia University students too as Columbia is in Harlem and we have the largest amount of townhouses that, like this person said, are still a great bargain compared to downtown. We also have so many luxury buildings that are way nicer than downtown and still very affordable when compared to the rest of the city. I move to Harlem 7 years ago and I could have moved anywhere but I chose Harlem because my condo already doubled in price so it’s a great investment but it’s also a great place to live because of the many bars and restaurants around me.

What people are leaving out with this whole discussion is that SOME parts of Harlem are nice. East Harlem must have dozens of mid-rise housing projects. People that spend millions of dollars on property all of a sudden want to negate the fact that there are undesirable neighborhoods that still exist in Harlem that have household incomes of around 30-40k per year. Harlem as a whole combined average income is not high at all. Stop gas lighting people that don’t know any better to make this picture that Harlem is all nice and everything spice. I’m not bashing Harlem at all. Just keep it real. Some nice parts and some parts that need to be avoided when the sun goes down.

I plan on buying a summer home in Miami too, although I won’t move in for now unless I can relocate, I am professor at Columbia.

Just to remind those reading this article, New York is the number one source for new domestic migrants to Miami but it is not the only one, by any means. Consider other major contributors to this trend, such as California, Chicago, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland and even Washington State and Oregon. In fact, if one were to add up all the number of relocating persons from all those locations and others, it would outnumber the total from New York. Miami is finally, truly undergoing positive change for the better. Sure there are many as-of-yet inadequate factors, such as mass transit, for one example, but there is no question Miami is moving in the right direction in a major, major way!

The soon to be displaced
2 months ago

Debating between love or hate. While most New Yorkers and other out of state people are finding South Florida as their long lost real state paradise , most of them do not know the ripple effect they are causing for the locals and native Floridians that are being displaced. Perhaps this is the opportunity many American have been waiting for a long time , to finally being able to afford two homes, or finally having a decent 2000 sqft home with a backyard and a pool and unlimited sunshine instead of the gloomy small urban spaces normally found up north . I’m happy for them , their patience was well worth it. It gives hope to many that better times always come .The other side of the coin shows a sad picture of young professionals , local and ordinary families and the older people who have been here since the 60’s being displaced from their homes, baffled by this new wave worse than COVID, with no place to go because they can no longer afford them or simply because there is no more affordable space available. The greed from their landlords caused by this new injection of unlimited cash is just a negative and unfair effect . And as we leave behind the sunny land , that feeling of hate …..will always linger in the back of our minds.

Yeah now with the new abortion law, who the hell from New York or California will want to relocate here? Tallahassee yet again sticking it to South Florida. When will it be the time for a petition for a secession amendment?

This article’s title is missleading purposely meant to confuse readers. Just because a user is looking at homes in Miami does not mean they will or have moved. As a matter of fact for rental listing care coming on the market because people are moving out. Just went a couple moves. More and more companies are requiring employees to go back to office at least part time. Goodbye Miami.

^ Cut it out with the bragging. NYC has a population of over seven million people. Even when and if Miami gets to one million people, it still has a long way to go to catch up with NYC.

This is great for Miami and us recently relocated New Yorkers. If the trend continues we should be able to price out all the riffraff within the next couple years to bring down the crime and homeless problems that have been here in the past

This isn’t NYC. There was no riffraff in places like Brickell before your “miraculous arrival”. All you’ve done is drive rents to insane levels that so many long term, middle-class residents are being forced out in droves. So “great”!

I’m a native local and I can tell you that Downtown and Brickell have been full of bums and annoying panhandlers for decades. They still are but I have noticed a reduction of the pandemic. Miami’s bad neighborhoods like buena vista have also improved as wynwood and the design district have expanded to price out bad elements from neighboring areas like that. Gentrification has the one con of obviously everyone is going to have to pay more but that extra payment comes with many benefits, better looking areas, and safer neighborhoods, you can’t put a price on that

Are you kidding me? I’ve lived in Brickell for more than 10 years. Since the last year the neighborhood is full of homeless people, almost every corner there’s one. Will they start building tent camps with syringes and shit all over the sidewalks like in San Francisco or LA? Is that what you consider a “better neighborhood”?

Come on down! I finally lucked out and bought a house 2 months before lock down. The paper gains always bring a smile to my face even though i never plan on selling. Also I enjoying meeting people from different places that aren’t just here for the week.

The problem is most people come down say its nice then dipp after regularly getting eaten alive by mosquitoes, the roach migration / mating season (lol), the ha$$le to go boating / clubbing every weekend, regularly flooded streets especially in the yuppie areas, and this nagging feeling of always getting ripped off.

Blue doesn’t make a state better, it just makes it more myopic. Growth is always better than blue… I hope the people coming here realize that now and don’t turn Miami into the hellhole NYC has become.

You mean that NYC and San Francisco are getting bluer because the right-of-center residents are leaving for here? If they didn’t and considering how bad it has gotten the point that normal people gave up and left, NYC and New Jersey would have had a Republican mayor and governor respectively since January.

Bluer, as in an 8.8% unemployment rate in NYC vs. 1.4% in Miami? Whatever drugs you’re on, please share some with the group!

Stop with the subway system in Miami. It’s not possible unless we spend every tax dollar on it.
