In which neighborhoods can you find a beautiful villa in Miami?

Miami, one of the most dynamic and attractive American cities, also bears the nickname “Gateway to the Americas”, due to its proximity to the Caribbean and Latin America. The city thus has an extremely diverse population, which is reflected in the culture, the lifestyle and of course, the real estate. Miami's real estate market is currently experiencing a real booming  due to the international pandemic. Indeed, everyone wants to enjoy the good life of the Magic city. Recently, many public figures have also acquired a property in Miami: David Beckham at the 1000 Museum, Pharrell williams within Coral Gables Estate in South Miami or even Jennifer Lopez who bought a villa on Star Island in Miami Beach. Not everyone can afford a multi-million dollar property; however, the offer is very varied and caters to all profiles.

Famous for its powerful tourism, aeronautics and cruise industries, the very dynamic city of Miami is posting exceptional economic growth and becoming, on the other hand, the 2nd city with the fastest growing economy in the United States but also the 4th largest economy in the country. The extremely temperate fiscal climate has a lot to do with it since there is no income tax in Florida. So of course, the city is attracting more and more investors wishing to acquire an oceanfront villa or a condo as a second home or simply to invest.

Due to the pandemic, the most important demand currently concerns family houses or villas with land, swimming pool or access to the ocean. Coral Gables, Coconut Grove and Key Biscayne are the 3 main areas with a high concentration of spectacular villas:

These districts, which have good public or private schools and many sports activities, are currently in high demand and result in the decrease of inventory.

The Miami business center has experienced a very strong growth in recent years, leading to the construction of a large number of luxury condos in neighborhoods such as Brickell, Downton or Edgewater. The offer remains strong in these districts which are still developing very promisingly.

With a decidedly urban lifestyle, these districts will appeal more particularly to young people.

Fisher Island

Miami, which continues to grow, offers interesting investment opportunities through many new projects with delivery dates ranging from the end of 2021 to 2025 and whose prices are between $300,000 and $8 million and more. . Note in particular the 57 Ocean, Arte Surfside or Monad Terrace, in Miami Beach; Aston Martin, Elysium, Missoni Baia, Natiivo or Una Residences, in Brickell; or Mr. C in Coconut Grove.

The editorial of February by Adam Redolfi: What trends for new programs?

Globally, the year 2016 was synonymous with a slight slowdown in the volume of purchase of construction projects in many global cities such as New York, Paris, Miami or London. There are, however, some differences between Miami and other international cities in the structure of new programs for example, in Miami, most developers can not give a shovel before selling 60 to 70% from project & #8211; to stabilize the market and avoid unsold products on delivery.

Projects that still have many units to sell, after a few months of marketing, choose to wait for the next cycle, on average 8 years later. The aim is to avoid half-empty buildings, as it can happen in other American or European cities. Generally, in cities such as London, Paris or New York, most developers start construction simultaneously at the start of marketing with the assumption that the building will be sold at the time of delivery. In a tougher market, developers redouble their creativity and innovative ideas, combining luxury with human-sized buildings, favoring a small number of units and partnering with a luxury home, or a renowned architect. World.

Why ? Because the beautiful and the rare are part of the timeless markets.
With this in mind, the promoter Vladislav Doronin, Russian billionaire, plans to go ahead with his first round of "condos" in Florida: " Missoni Baia". Same idea for Michael Stern who builds "Monad", very exclusive building on a human scale designed in Miami Beach by Jean Nouvel. It's the same with "Aston Martin Residences", and " Armani Casa"In terms of the use of branding, or the breakthrough of" Starchitects "Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster, Renzo Piano.

As always in real estate, the place is key too, because the investment "AAA" in Miami is always feet in the water, or in a neighborhood with strong pedestrian flow and easy access. With an average of 1,000 new residents per day in Florida, encompassing all types of budgets, from the most affordable to the most extravagant, promoters and investors still have opportunities in the making. The fundamentals should not be forgotten: bet on a quality program, choose trusted promoters, be accompanied by an expert which will guide you to the choices that will be best valued in the long term.
