Overall 2Q 2017 saw positive growth in the Miami and Miami Beach Real Estate market vs 2Q 2016. This was despite the rising new construction condo inventory, the slowdown of foreign buyers, limited affordable housing for locals, and some unrealistic seller pricing following 2013 and 2014’s unsustainable high pace of largely cash sales. Miami single family home sales rose 5.8% 2Q 2017 versus 2Q 2016, but existing condominium sales decreased 2.6%, reported by the Miami Association of Realtors.

Bal Harbour, Surfside, and Bay Harbor Islands have 2 years of excess condo inventory with 8 new projects underway, according to a new report by Condo Vultures. Six months of supply typically equals a balanced market. Would would that spell? Buyer’s Market! The big question is, where are we in the current cycle? And, how do the different communities of Miami and the beaches stack up to each other?
