Miami Beach ranks as #1 “Sexiest Suburb”

This is not your average Top 10 list and one that may not quite have that many people take serious: America's 10 Sexiest Suburbs. Yes just when you think you have pretty much read every type of "Top 10" list here's a new one that was done by blogger Natalie Grigson. The good news is for South Florida is that Miami Beach came in first place, no surprise there as places don't get much more sexy that South Beach. This ranking for the most part is silly and won't sway anyone to relocate to Miami Beach but it's not such a bad list to be on. Here is the Top according to Movoto: 1-Miami Beach, FL 2-Jacksonville Beach, FL 3-Santa Monica, CA 4-Cornelius, NC 5-Dublin, OH 6-Frederick, MD 7-Atlantic Beach, FL 8-Council Bluffs, IA 9-Seal Beach, CA 10-Plano, TX

Florida leads the Nation for International Home Shoppers

It seems like there is no slowing down for foreign buyers looking to buy homes in the U.S. and Florida takes first place. In a new report that tracks International home shoppers shows the sunshine state with 25% of the market. In the past 12 months that ended in June 2014, the dollar value of purchases in Florida topped $7.97 billion - a 24% increase from the previous year. The metropolitan areas with the most sales were: #1 : Orlando-Kissimmee with 11.5%, then 2cd place : Tampa-St. Petersburg with 11%, then 3rd : Miami-Miami Beach with 10%, then two tied at 4th place: Fort Lauderdale  & Sarasota-Bradenton  both with 8% of sales. The countries were buyers are coming from: Canada, Western Europe, United Kingdom, France, Germany and of course many South Americans especially in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale real estate markets.  

Florida Home Sales show over Half were Cash

In a new report of home sales in the state of Florida show that over 50% were cash sales and the highest in the nation.  According to Corelogic an Irvine, CA based financial data company that tracks nation wide home sales. Second-place was Alabama at 48% of their homes being cash transactions. The report shows the following of large U.S. cities: Cape Coral-Fort Meyers was first with 61.2%, then followed by: West Palm Beach-Boca Raton at 60.6%, then Sarasota-Bradenton with 59.8%, then Miami-Miami Beach with 58.7% and then Fort Lauderdale-Oakland Park-Pompano Beach with 58.5% with cash sales. Other states that followed Florida and Alabama were: New York 44.6%, Kentucky 40.1% and Nevada with 40%. Nationally the average was 33% and the Washington, D.C. area was the lowest with 15.6%. This report does seem to highlight the importance of non-cash sale buyers to really make sure their agent has done good comps to ensure they don't go in with a low offer as these cash buyers will surely have the edge with home sellers.  

Miami-Ft Lauderdale: June 2014 Monthly Market Summary

Well with Spring behind us and the start of Summer it looks like the Miami-Fort Lauderdale Metropolitan area will continue to heat up for home sales. In the latest sales data for the area in the month of June shows 4,341 closed sales which is up 12.2% from June 2013. The buyer paying with cash was also up with 1,817 homes accounting for almost 42% of all sales. South Florida leads the nation in cash sales as both domestic and international home buyers are investing here. The median home sale price for the metropolitan area is $275,000 and up 5.8% from last year. There was one area that somewhat bucked the trend and that is the overall days on market actually rose from 40 days in 2013 to 44 days in 2014. The main reason for the increased days on market is from a slight increase in inventory which is giving some home buyers more to choose from. The one area that really looks promising is the amount of short sales has fallen by 42.7% and that is finally helping the median home price values.
