Simply put, abundant inventory and low sales leads to a higher MOI, while low inventory and high sales leads to a lower MOI. For Dade County we are currently at a 3.6 MOI which puts us at the cusp between … (0 comments)

josh garcia: Buenos Aires Meets Hollywood in Miami Beach - 10/14/13 08:59 AM

With new developments popping-up all over South Florida these days it is easy to clump them all together as your typical highrise. However, this would be a big mistake with one of these new developments, that is, the new development on Miami Beach headed by Alan Faena, which he has branded as the Faena District Miami Beach. This development sets itself apart in two important ways.
Firstly, the team behind this development is unique. It is headed by world renowned Alan Faena, an Argentine developer-alchemist who most recently transformed Buenos Aires' rundown Puerto Madero district into real-estate gold. Also part … (2 comments)

josh garcia: Status of Foreclosures in Miami - 08/02/13 03:31 AM
The status of foreclosures in the Miami Real Estate market remains ambiguous. On the one hand, the year-to-date REO closings in Miami-Dade County is significantly lower in 2013 compared to this time last year (i.e., 3,200; 3,537, respectively). On the other hand, according to reports in Bloomberg, Miami's foreclosure rate ranked at the top of all major U.S. metropolitan areas last month. In short, although the proverbial REO "shadow market" is still slugging away at a slow rate, Miami seems to be on a fast pace compared to the Nation.  Within our own team, we are currently working with the largest … (0 comments)
