Fueled by immigration both from within the United States and from overseas, plus Miami-Dade County’s burgeoning reputation as a business and luxury living destination, South Florida can be considered one of the most vibrant real estate destinations in the nation, with the vast amount of private money and entering the market indicative of how investors view the opportunities here.

“The amount of development that’s happened in the last 15-plus years in Miami is probably on par with any place in the United States, and that development continues today.” says Michael Finney, president and CEO of the Beacon Council. “Literally, there are construction cranes throughout Miami-Dade County, and we’re seeing not just residential construction and condominiums. but we’re also seeing a lot of commercial activity as well.”
