MIAMI REAL ESTATE FORECAST FOR 2017

Everyone I come across asks me what to expect in 2017? And what to expect with Trump? This is my view of things but I am not yet a psychic !

-Lower taxes will help Miami's market by increasing demand.

-Strong immigration policies will affect construction cost which will lower the supply of condos.

-Less regulations will help our market. More financing will be available.

-Sellers have purchased in cash their unit so they will not sell at a loss. The market is expected to get only a small correction.

-Safe financial investment: International clients buy in the US because it is the most secured country in which to invest.

-Miami- the brand. We are a city where people want to invest because they enjoy the lifestyle.

-Prices: Miami real estate remains a major bargain compared to London, New York...

-Miami's affordable real estate <$300,000 will remain strong in 2017

-Miami's middle real estate ($300,000-$999,000) will readjust in the condo market but the single family will stay strong

-Miami's luxury > $1M will decrease in price since there is an oversupply

UPLAND RESTAURANT

Upland in a famous restaurant in New York city. Stephen Starr just opened a new one in Miami Beach, at 49 Collins Ave. The cuisine is Californian inspired thanks to the chef, Justin Smillie, who grew there.

I've been there for dinner but it's also open for lunch. The place is very cozy but yet chill. There's an outdoor patio for those of you who hate the freezing A/C.

The menu very eclectic but for a small appetite don't miss the crispy artichokes or the crispy polenta. I would also recommend the delicious lamb chops. I haven't tried the rest of the menu but I saw at the table next to ours the bucatini cacio e pepe which seemed to die for ! You can't go wrong choosing Upland for dinner or brunch. A little on the high price though
