Despite real estate prices falling in many parts of the country, the Greater Miami real estate market in August posted gains in both volume and median prices for single-family homes. The Miami Downtown Development Authority reports that the area is experiencing growth, and the population should surpass 100,000 by 2021. 
Ocean Drive Magazine reports on some of the reasons that the Miami real estate market continues to thrive, including speaking with Ugo Colombo.
One of the reasons is that international buyers are interested. Miami is more accessible by air, and strengthening currencies in some countries gives international buyers more purchasing power. Ugo Colombo told Ocean Drive that he’s seeing buyers from Latin America, Europe, Turkey and even Kazakhstan.
Of course, the best thing about the Miami real estate market is that it’s in Miami. Between the weather, beaches, and the lifestyle, Miami is a great place to live.
