Miami-Dade County, Florida Real Estate is Booming!

Things are continuing to look up for the South Florida real estate market, according to the most recent data released.

Evidently, more and more investors are coming to South Florida to get a piece of the action – which in turn is strengthening our local housing market.

Miami, Florida Area Homes for Sale

According to the most recent article I read in the Miami-Herald, plenty of private equity firms in the area are snatching up prime South Florida real estate lately.

For example, Fort Capital recently purchased the historic Surf Club in Surfside. It is expected to be revitalized and later sold.

That’s what the company did after it bought most of the Capri South Beach along with other coveted pieces of South Florida real estate.

Experts say that the South Florida market is getting hotter and hotter, with demand rising.

This is particularly true in the hotel arena, where investors are buying and building hotels left and right!

The latest activity reflects a national trend in which the lodging industry is expected to spend more than $5 billion this year on upgrades that range from redesigned lobbies to additional fitness centers and restaurants.

Here in South Florida, some of the more specific drivers to this recent hotel boom include rising tourism numbers, scarcity of available land and more lenient lending policies.

Here’s what else you should know about the South Florida hotel industry:

  • Through September, hotels in Miami-Dade were more than 76 percent full, which is up slightly from the same period a year before.
  • Room rates in South Florida increased by 7 percent to almost $163.
  • Revenue per available room in South Florida also grew by about 8 percent year-over-year to $124.55.
  • Hotel transactions volume is expected to be about $650 million in the county this year, up 13 increase when compared to 2011

You may be thinking to yourself – that’s great but what exactly does this mean for the South Florida residential housing market?

Since everything is inter-connected, more interest and investments in the South Florida hotel market will likely lead to more interest and investments in the South Florida real estate market as well!

South Florida Real Estate Market Has Finally Bottomed Out, Experts Say!

I recently read an article in the Sun Sentinel that declared that the South Florida housing market has finally hit bottom.

According to, which is a Seattle-based real estate analysis site, home values in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties are now beginning to increase after six years of steady decline.

Continue reading to learn more about what Zillow said this means for the greater South Florida real estate market – as well as interested home buyers like you!

Properties for Sale in Aventura, Hallandale and other South Florida Communities

Here’s the most recent data that Zillow released about the local housing market:

  • The median value for homes in all three South Florida counties is $141,300, up 1 percent when compared to 2011.
  • Over all home prices are expected to increase by 6 percent during the next year, which would make South Florida a top-performing housing market in the nation.
  • Home sales prices are now beginning to resemble those prices seen in 2002 in South Florida.
  • Home values in 21 of 32 Broward Cities – including Fort Lauderdale – increased between 2011 and 2012.
  • Meanwhile, 17 communities in Palm Beach County saw higher home values, year-over-year.
  • Single-family home inventories in Broward County have decreased by 48 percent, year-over-year.
  • In Palm Beach County, inventories have decreased by 38 percent.
  • More and more homes are receiving multiple offers, many of which are above the original asking price.

All of this data suggests that home prices have fallen as much as they’re going to fall in South Florida before they begin to rise again.

And while some analysts are still skeptical that the South Florida housing market has truly bottomed out, nearly everybody agrees that the market will not likely see prices drop very much more if it hasn’t bottomed out yet.

Thus, for those who were interested in making an incredible investment on the South Florida real estate market, now is the ideal time to do so!

After all, once a market has bottomed out, the only direction home prices are going to go is up!
