Click for Full Story

Sales of existing condominiums in Miami have now increased 46% in the last 12 months while sales of family homes are up 20% year on year, the latest figures show. Condo sales in May alone increased 1.1% compared with April and houses jumped 5.4% on the month, the report from Miami’s Association of Realtors also shows.In May, 60% of closed sales were cash transactions. International sales, which are mostly cash transactions, represent approximately 60% of closed resales and 90% of new construction sales.It is good news for Florida which has been badly hit by the slum in real estate as a result of the global economic slowdown. In the state as a whole condo sales increased 17% and 3% single family homes.It flies in the face of the national picture which has seen sales of existing single family homes, town homes, condominiums, and co-ops fall 3.8% from April. They are now 15.3% below May 2010, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR).‘The current performance of the Miami market is exceeding expectations, as we continue to see increased demand for local properties and higher sales levels than we have seen since the boom years,’ said Jack Levine, 2011 chairman of the Board of the Miami Association of Realtors.‘Presently, there is only a 7.4 month supply of housing inventory in Miami-Dade County. Both American and international buyers continue to take advantage of record affordability, Miami’s attractive lifestyle and weather, and other enviable local attributes,’ he added.
