High Demand for Miami Real Estate
Miami’s Real Estate has always been an exclusive investment, due to our beautiful beaches and sunny weather. Over the last year Miami’s Real Estate market has rebounded as demand for Miami properties has risen. Local Properties are being sold quickly due to the scarcity of properties available. The scarcity of supply has led to an increase of Real Estate prices over the last year.

For instance, the median price for single family homes rose 25.1% to $225,000 compared to last year, with a 16% price increase in March alone.
