Escape the Cold: The Best of Miami Real Estate

For those in the Northeast East and Midwest, winter can be quite brutal and feel seemingly longer than any other season of the year. The winter season thus far has been brutally cold in New York City, yet those looking for an escape only have a 2.5-hour plane ride to be transported to sun and sand.

Miami is often times referred to as the 6th borough of New York City given the quick and easy plane ride. Some of the hottest developments are under construction or nearing completion in South Florida. Similar to New York, some of the biggest names in architect and design are backing these new projects in Miami.

Looking at the Miami luxury market, we see some similar themes to what we have previously shared for our outlook for the Manhattan luxury market. One of those is opportunity as a result of uncertainty. There is no doubt that cranes have been dotting the South Florida skyline from Sunny Isles to Brickell. Some of these projects have foreign investment, with a large proportion in Miami being from South America, which has caused concern for some as it relates to foreign exchange rates and the ability of those invested to maintain their stake and close. We do not feel overly concerned about this, but rather look at the opportunity of a Buyer’s Market that has resulted in South Florida and the opportunity to purchase some of the best product the area has seen at the best prices.

The Victoria Shtainer Team is pleased to market 3 of the most notable new developments in the Miami area – The Ritz Carlton Residences Sunny Isles, Muse Sunny Isles, and Echo Brickell.
