Chief Economist for the National Association of Realtors released a statement regarding the recent numbers of previously owned home sales for the month of December today, “Record low mortgage interest rates clearly are helping many home buyers, but tight inventory amd restrictive mortgage underwriting standards are limiting sales.” This comes as no surprise given the record low inventory in Miami and we are seeing this increasingly as a sellers market. In December, sales fell 1% however they remained 12.8% above December numbers in 2011. 4.65 million homes were estimated by NAR to be sold in 2012, which is an increase from 9.2% in 2011 and is the highest level since 2007.
Nationally, the housing inventory dropped 8.5%, reaching 1.82 million homes, which is estimated to be a 4.2 month supply. Economists consider a 6-7 month supply to be a healthy market and this low inventory is lowest since 2001. This is not a sad story however since the median price of homes has been driven up by 11.5% since last year. In Miami Beach, we are witnessing a drastic shortage of previously owned homes for sale. There are 83 planned developments for this year in condominiums and hopefully there will be more released on the market. If you are looking to sell your home, contact us today!

According to the Miami Herald and sources close to Alex Rodriguez, he has taken his North Bay Road home off the market. He built the home with former girlfriend, Cameron Diaz, and this zen and modern retreat will serve as his den of recuperation after a hip surgery. “Alex wants to concentrate on making a full recovery so he can be ready to return to baseball after the All-Star break in July. So he doesn’t want anything to disturb the recovery.” The home has been on the market only a short time, placed on the mls in August, and as the market continues to rebound and the inventory is scarce, he is likely to have no problem selling the home in July.
The incredible piece of real estate is located on North Bay Road, which is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Miami Beach. Celebrities with homes on North Bay Road include Matt Damon and Chris Bosh and numerous other A-list celebs have had homes there. Many of the homes have incredible views of the water and the neighborhood is quiet with children playing often in the streets. La Gorce Country Club is a private club nearby and the Miami Beach Golf Club also is close for those looking for leisure activities. Miami International Airport, Downtown Miami are both a 20 minute drive and South Beach is only 10 minutes away. For more information on this incredible neighborhood and listings, contact us today!
