I’m not the poster, but who believes that most of the original buyers will live in these full time…. And by most I mean 60%+

Well if you actually go to brickell you will notice there’s actually plenty of people who live there and plenty of lights at night. But if you want, you could continue to live in your 1990s mindset that most condos are bought with laundered money.

Owner occupied? Or renter occupied?

Does it matter? Miami is a city that has lots of transitional people who rent. But Brickell is far from being a ghost town. Anonymous where do you live; Kendall?

Isnt the important thing that they ARE occupied? Brickell has become an amazing community where people live work and play, even more so once Citicenter comes to life. Because of our banking system only cash buyers can own so its great that they give everyone else a chance to live in these fabulous buildings even if they are renting.

I think it *does* matter that the vast majority of units are bought by people with ZERO intention of ever living in them.

Are these being built for living or for a store of value/wealth?

There are many Miami-haters out there who are obsessed with trying to find any excuse to negate the unusual success of Miami, if only people will believe them. They often live nowhere near Miami and are jealous of its unique success. The money laundering era has passed, this is not the 1980s anymore. Much of the investment cash comes from “flight capital” from Latin America. Wealthy South Americans view Miami as a safe haven to park their investment cash, so the buildings keep getting built by developers eager for profits, the buyers keep plunking down their investment cash and then they rent to mostly young professional types. It is the latter group that is re-energizing and even creating the New Miami.

Agreed. A lot of people who actually want to live in urban core condos and need standard bank financing in order to buy aren’t able to because of current tight lending practices and “banned” buildings, so being able to rent at these buildings is often the only way to live in this area of the city.

I’m not a hater, I just want to point out and have debate about the fact that the majority of these buildings are being sold to foreign/out of town investors whom are buying these as an investment, not as a place to live.

As others have pointed out, it’s difficult to buy these buildings if require financing.

It’s also a shame that there is clearly a demand for rental units yet developers do not seem interested in building apartment buildings.

For the record I live and own on the beach.

Of course the stuck up Miami Beach folks who look down upon Miami no matter what.
