CNBC Reports on the Booming Miami Real Estate Market

March 15, 2012 by Lucas Lechuga

For those who missed it, two segments aired on CNBC this afternoon in which Diana Olick reported on the booming real estate market in Miami.  She attributes the latest boom to cash buyers from South America, Europe, Russia and China.  The surge in demand has prompted developers to start building once again.  This time around, however, there is less fear in the marketplace than was present in the last boom.  Easy credit is no longer available and the majority of purchases for South Florida real estate are made with cash.

I feel sorry for the poor slobs who listened to the housing critics when prices were historic lows. Those poor slobs were told it was cheaper to rent than to own as if those conditions would remain true forever. Now they are priced out of the market once again and will soon be relegated to moving back to the suburbs in search of cheaper rent.

[…] Whether it be rental or retail, the real estate market is buzzing and it has everyone moving again. During the residential condominium market boom, several buildings were converted from rental to condominium, thereby reducing the supply of rental units on the market. The long-established developers that were able to make it through the recent storm, coupled with international investors’ thirst for Miami, has created a mini-boom for new rental apartment buildings in the city.
