Research by the Miami Association of Realtors has revealed that property prices in Miami are on the rise. The median sales price of condos in the region has risen by 36 per cent between January 2011 and January 2012, and has now reached $122,500.
The rises have been caused by intense interest in property in Miami, and a market which continues to outperform the rest of the USA, with interest from overseas property buyers at an all-time high. Cash sales were also improving the state of the market, enabling houses to move quickly. In Miami-Dade County, 66 per cent of total closed sales in January 2012 were cash only, with nearly 90 per cent of international buyers in Florida classed as cash buyers.
"Never before in history had we sold as many homes in Miami as we did last year," said 2012 Miami Association of Realtors Residential President Patricia Delinois. "As supply is absorbed, there are fewer properties available to sell, and it will be difficult to match the record set last year. But the good news is that home values are rapidly appreciating, as global buyers, investors and corporations focus on Miami."
