Why is Miami Real Estate So Cheap?
Lately, I’ve heard talk from New Yorkers saying that buying Real Estate in Miami is so cheap. That may be true compared to NYC or London, but the prices in Miami are far from cheap.
For example, if you want to live in South Beach, you might be able to find a decent condo for under $250k. But most likely this apartment will be very small, won’t have central AC, and will be a complete fixer upper. Many agents and realtors I know are getting multiple offers on the best priced properties and the local market is very strong. But in real estate, everything is about location. So, of course, you can find much cheaper properties in less desirable locations, just as you can in any other part of the world. But if you want to live in the best parts of Miami, it’s not cheap.
How Much Does a Realtor Make in Miami?
Good realtors in Miami can make millions of dollars in sales commissions per year and this is especially true now as more wealthy people make Miami their home. But for the most part, the majority of Miami realtors earn less than $50k per year.
Miami realtors that specialize in luxury waterfront homes for sale or luxury condos obviously will earn more than an agent that sells a small house in a less desirable area of Miami. Brokers and agents that work in the most affluent communities and have these multi-million dollar listings for waterfront houses for sale are doing incredible this year. As with any business, agents that provide exceptional services and expertise are the ones that earn the most money.
Is Miami Good for Real Estate?
Yes, Miami is great for real estate, especially in 2021. New listings are coming onto the market frequently as older inventory gets sold. The Miami real estate market is one of the strongest in the country due to people wanting warmer weather, a better tax system, and overall better quality of life. The real estate market is booming and homes for sale are flying off the shelf.
Is Buying a Condo in Miami a Good Investment?
Buying a condo in Miami can make for a great investment if you buy it right. Obviously, there are many factors to consider and that can “make or break it” for being a good investment. If you are buying an older place, then you need to check the electrical system and plumbing to make sure it is up to code. You also want to make sure the baths are properly permitted and there are no issues with plumbing or leaking. Overall a condo is an easier investment than that of houses.
