Miami Beach Condo Market Not Hot Not Cold Not So Fast

What’s wrong with this market? Well, nothing if you’re buying as one of the top 5% or 1%. You know, rich and famous, or at least quite wealthy. The luxury, large and spacious condos in Miami Beach have risen in price but that does not a market profile make. Overall, the Miami Beach condo market has slipped both in median price and number of sales.

What’s going on?

High end luxury condos in Miami Beach still doing great!

A hint may lie in the rental statistics. The median rent has dropped around 30% over the last year and the number of rentals has left May day peak of around 460 to about 310. It looks like the condo rental market has tapped out. Does that mean the market is less attractive to investors? I think so. The overall Miami rental market has taken a similar turn south since spring 2017 as well.

Everyone loves a good deal but the market may only be as good as about any other real estate investment and that requires caution anywhere, including the luxury hotspots.

How Do You Get Someone To Buy Real Estate With You

What are you doing with social media? Is it just some kind of new problem for you? Here’s the thing. You need money because you need visibility. If You need to spend that money on marketing. How are you going to grow your business? How do you get in front of more people? How do you get those people to want to do business with you now? You have to take ideas and concepts and bring them to the marketplace and push them they see value and will give you money. When value exceeds price then people will buy things and give you money. This includes houses whether are are those houses are in West Palm Beach or Palo Alto.

If you don’t have money, by the way, you can’t grow your business so don’t tell me money isn’t the most important thing in business.

Why aren’t houses selling like you want in your market? Worse yet, houses are selling in your market but they are not selling for you because you’re not getting any of the deals. Well the problem is that you are obscure. Nobody knows who you are. At some price a house will sell and at some price it will quit selling but you’re not even in there so how do you get somebody to buy from you. What do you do with all the tools online? Twitter, Facebook? You may not even have an account in those places but you have to push into that space and dominate it. Have you been “educated” that competition is healthy? It ain’t. No way. You must dominate whatever market you’re in by being seen and wiping out competition. That’s what SEO does for you online.
