Miami Dade Real Estate- State of the Market 12/1 thru 12/18/2020

The most recent market stats in Miami-Dade continue to show a desperate lack of available inventory. Builders are combating increased land, lumber and material costs coupled with skilled labor shortages due to COVID-19. Three years of a bustling economy and sustained record-low interest rates had ignited a robust housing sector, and nine months of high state income tax frustration and pandemic-induced shutdowns in Northern states have triggered a record-shattering migration to Florida. Builders are building as fast as their limitations allow but the demand is simply staggering. As a result, home prices are rising dramatically. Moreover, buying patterns have been significantly altered. Today, the most desirable features of a home include additional space to accommodate a home office or gym and even elderly family members, a larger private back yard to give the feeling of open space while preserving a modicum of isolation, and even interior green space to improve ambient air quality. Suburban communities have been the sweet spot of Miami Dade.

Please click below and check out the numbers. If you're even remotely considering the sale of your home, I really can't compare any time in recent history to this. So many factors and forces have converged to create this Seller's market, it's simply the best time ever to sell your home.

If you have any questions or want to discuss your particular situation with me, I'm here to help and you know how to reach me. Happy Holidays and Best Wishes!

The Hammocks Community ranks #3 of the TOP 5 HOTTEST Single Family Home communities in Q1 2020

With over 6,000 homeowners, The Hammocks- Kendall is one of the largest managed communities in the US.  A vast array of amenities including fitness centers, swimming pools, tennis courts, lakeside walking and jogging paths, and activities including neighborhood flea markets, holiday festivities, fitness classes and more make The Hammocks a warm slice of paradise in the vibrant and growing Kendall area.  How do I know this?  Well, because my family and I call it home!

Sadly, COVID-19 has cast a dark shadow over the world for the last several months. It has clearly impacted the lives of everyone, and devastated the lives of far too many.  We must, however, remain strong and do whatever we can to help those in need.  The strong and healthy need to serve as the lifeline for the sick and elderly, and as a symbol of fortitude, resilience and resolve for our youth.  We must be what we hope our children to become.  That is our duty and our purpose.  We will overcome.

Click on the article below to see a perfect example of the strength, character and resilience of a community. When you are ready to consider the purchase of your first or next home, I hope you'll consider the Hammocks and keep me in mind to help you find it.  I look forward to calling you my neighbor.  Thanks!

The coronavirus crisis, its effect on global supply chains, the transportation industry, and consumer spending habits could spark the beginning of a bear market on Wall St. Today's 30 yr mortgage rate hit 3.29%, a new record. It may go lower. If refinancing is on your radar, you may want to get things going. Don't pull the trigger yet as it may go lower, but be ready in case it begins to rebound. If thinking about selling your home, I recommend you stop thinking and do it. If thinking about buying, get off the fence and go for it (depending on your local market).
