  • Miami tower’s Brazilian side

    Brazilians have overtaken Canadians as the top overseas visitors and property buyers in Miami as the city shrugs off the after-effects of the 2008 real estate crash, América Economía reported.

    Less than a fifth of the commercial space in Miami-Dade and Broward counties — 18.1 percent and 18.7 percent, respectively — is available, about the same amount percentagewise as what’s available statewide, according to CBRE, the real estate service firm. Palm Beach County has roughly a quarter of its office space open. [more]

    Despite falling mortgage interest rates and home prices far below peak levels, a robust rental market and anemic salary growth are keeping housing costs in proportion to income high in South Florida. [more]
