In 2012 Miami set a new sales record with prices reaching a double digit growth. Miami Association of Realtors announced that at the end of the year single family homes rose 7.9% and condo sales rose 1.2% from 2011. Natascha Tello, chairman of the board of Miami Association of Realtors released this statement, “The Miami real estate market continues to exceed expectations and generate optimism. While we expected the surge in demand to drive price appreciation, we did not expect prices to increase as soon and as strong as they did.” In December the sales were up 12.5% from 2011. 
Single family home sales were up a startling 16.4% and condos sales were up 9.8%. Across florida, single family home sales were up 15.8% and condo sales were up 8.6%. These are incredible numbers even by the most optimistic estimates at the beginning of the year. The inventory is so shrunken now that we will likely see decreased sales simply because there are not homes available for sale to meet the demand. For the past 13 months consecutively home prices have increased for both homes and condos. Median condo prices have increased 25.4%, compared to last year. There are bidding wars and it could not be a better time to list your Miami condo. Contact us today for a market analysis.

Reuters announced today that the home prices rose in November and are reported to be the best gain since 2006. According to the Case Shiller index in 20 metropolitan areas there was a gain of .6% in November, adjusted seasonally. In these 20 cities process rose 5.5% over the year. Economist Omar Sharif at RBS Securities in New York released this statement to Reuters, “This is continuing a trend in place for the better part of a year. This is another indication that the housing rebound is fairly entrenched at this point.” This is excellent news and we have had nothing but positive news to report regarding last years numbers.
The housing market in general was one of the most positive areas of the economy last year. The shrinking inventory witnessed a rise in prices and the housing market continues to be a stimulus to the national economy. Some of the concerns facing the 2013 market are the access to mortgages and the foreclosures that are to be released. November was the 10th month in a row that prices increased since 2006 and it beat out a nine month rise in 2009 and 2010, when there was a home buyer tax credit. The winter months are typically slow months for housing, however in Miami, we are in season and the inventory is rapidly being snapped up. There is very little on the market and we encourage you to buy now before prices increase further.
