Flourishing Miamian Real Estate Market

miamirg : August 17, 2013 9:52 am : Property Investment

The sudden uprising of real estate market in Miami has compelled savvy realtors to hunt down the probable causes for it. One of the most vehement and contributing reason in this regard was foreign investment. One more feature has recently been tracked by the realtors. It seems, political instability in Latin America, is compelling Venezuelans to look for safe shelters for their assets in Miami.

This has also contradicted the earlier reports of Brazilians being the highest buyers of Miami properties. It was estimated that Venezuela stands tall in comparison to Brazil in buying Miami properties.

Particularly during the reign of Hugo Chavez in 1998, when affluent Venezuelans were tyrants, politics started getting unstable. And since then, people started looking for peaceful locations. Moreover, the tyranny also continued after the death of Chavez when Nicolas Maduro took over the office.

And what does this imply? Miami is another global location which is sought by the affluent investors. According to the Florida Association of Realtors, the influx of buyers, combined with the economic recovery in the U.S., has created a dramatic turnaround in Miami’s housing market. Sales of single-family homes in Miami climbed 10.3% during the first three months of 2013 compared with 12 months earlier and prices jumped 23%.

“The city is filled with youth, with life, with music. The main difference now, is that the South Americans are not just parking their assets here, they’re parking their families as well.” said Alan Ojeda, a local developer and founder of Rilea Group who’s building a 44-story condo in downtown Miami.

miamirg : June 5, 2013 9:43 am : Miami Best Places

In this place where technology and serene nature seem to have been blend together, property buyers find a tough time deciding on the best place to live in. While beaches are the special attractions for every vacationer, those who are for jobs or have come here for education find the towns very convenient.

Here are the some of the best locations of Miami, which usually attracts the maximum number of population owing to its favorable factors:

South beach

It’s needless to mention about the South Beach; it’s an amazing global destination! Anything and everything can be found here; shopping complex, restaurants, hotels, motels and tourist spots also. What makes this place more demanding than its other counterparts is that, it is truly a pedestrian area in Miami. A small city, with all the facilities one has ever dreamt of!

Down Town Miami

This is the most impressive parts of Miami and has a mammoth future ahead! It has the American Airlines, the port of Miami, a soon-to-be-completed Miami museum and the bayside market. It has a great future ahead as some of the notable aspects of Miami are in their developing stage here.


Brickell is the trade and commerce hub of Miami. This places houses a number of banks, insurance offices and business centers of international and national reputation. And its demand is almost at par with that of the South Beach. It is because, people find the real estate market of Brickell quite reasonable than that of South Beach. And more over the price range and the amenities offered here are relatively comparable with each other.

Mid Town Miami

This is the real hustle bustle town of the city. Forget about the pedestrian area and the serene environment (Except night, when it is very silent). Unlike the South Beach, Brickell and Down Town areas of Miami, the Mid Town part is the developed area in the city.

Each and every location in Miami has something unique and appealing. So whether it is a down town or a mid town, living in Miami is itself a bigger experience.

Risk Management While Buying Or Selling A Property

miamirg : April 17, 2013 9:46 am : Property Investment

What are the basic aspects of risk management? How does it benefit both the owner and the prospective buyer? Risk management can be defined as the art or more precisely the tactics of uncovering the vulnerability of a business for different risks. They key risk elements of a business are its assets, agreements, liabilities, contracts, financial obligations and all those aspects which are directly or indirectly associated with the business.

These elements are particularly targeted for risk management for the unprecedented surprise that these pose immediately after the transaction. Business is not all about sale price or down payment, rather one should always be alert regarding the surprising shocks that results from these risks.

One of the safest ways of entitling low risk to a transaction is to hire highly competitive legal advisor and a business advisor who have prior years of experience and expertise in this field.

The principle is the same as the case of choosing a doctor. Everyone searches for the best doctor for treating a disease, so why should there be a compromise in selecting a business advisor?
