Miami’s Latest Real Estate Report (Summer 2020)

September 14, 2020
The WiseCat has been studying Miami’s real estate sales trends over the past 24 months, and have been curious about the effect of the coronavirus in this market. I was actually quite surprised with what I found. Other than some pauses when we started to lock down, prices remained stable and the buying continues. It never really stopped. Amazing!

Today, we’re more than halfway through the year; and while 2020 has been anything but normal, summertime is still in full swing and the real estate market continues to be hot! No doubt, this really is a great time to be a Buyer, with deals around every corner. You can see some of the biggest price drops on our website.

The data (below) is only complete with some guidance from a professional Broker. For a custom-made Market Report for exactly what you are considering to purchase, please call me on +1-305-523-923.

As for a preview to Q3 2020, this was one of our busiest summers! Single-Family Houses were flying! Condos on the Beach were in demand; and Luxury Rentals were (almost) impossible to find. Some savvy buyers offered a “Lease To Own” in order to snag a trophy property.

Today, we are looking forward to our Post-Summer sales season. September and October, historically, is when Buyers are able to lock down great deals!

ADVICE TO ALL: If you are considering purchasing a property in the near future (or even next year) we highly recommend you fine-tune your search criteria today with WiseCat Realtors and let us help you identify the best properties available today.

This will allow you to size up the market and closely monitor on- and off-market inventory… so, when you are ready, The WiseCat will be ready to reserve that special property for you!
