Real Estate Data

Conditions in the real estate market have a significant effect on the local economy. In addition to directly employing thousands of workers in real estate sales and finance, strength or weakness in this market affects construction activity, employment in the building trades and directly or indirectly related occupations in architecture, engineering, manufacturing, as well as others.

Real Estate Market Briefing

The Real Estate Market Briefing provides a general overview of current conditions in residential and commercial real estate. These reports include information on current trends in existing home sales, home prices, residential building permits, commercial lease and vacancy rates for office, industrial and retail space, and changes in the local inventory of commercial space.

  • 2009: Residential Foreclosures
    What happened in the housing market after the frenzy that climaxed in 2006? A recent study of residential foreclosures reveals the trends in actual foreclosures and case filing across all municipalities and the County itself.
  • 2008: Housing Vacancies
    This was a critical time in the housing market because trends that may have otherwise been significant in their own right become magnified in their importance due to the overall market conditions in the financial industry as a result of the mortgage crisis.
  • 2008: Housing Affordability
    Housing affordability in Miami-Dade County is currently one of the most pressing issues for households and politicians alike. Although finding housing that is affordable for most County residents has been a challenge for many years, it has become particularly serious since the rapid rise in home values that began in 2000-2001.

Research Notes on Economic Issues

At the request of the Board of County Commissioners, staff provided an assessment of the impacts from foreign investor participation in the local real estate market and the access to homeownership for first-time buyers.

The key findings from the analysis indicate that:

  1. Domestic first-time buyers are currently at a competitive disadvantage in the residential market;
  2. A widening gap has emerged between the volume of sales to domestic first-time homebuyers and sales to mainly foreign investors; and
  3. Investors’ participation in the residential market has supported the recovery of the real estate sector at a critical time for the sector and the broader economy.
