Real Estate Savvy


Real estate in Miami is about to go down again…

Housing Bubble Bursting

Time for real estate to go down again…

Almost a year ago, I was writing about the Real Estate in Miami, and I was already aware that the time for good deals was gone. There were no longer any spaces available at a bargain price. As I had forecasted: things are now quite bad, markets are slow, realtors that were making millions a few years ago are now looking for different jobs, and cranes are still standing high but some new buildings are starting to look deserted.
