Miller: Miami housing market is ‘entering a period of greater stability’April 20, 2017
Among the highlights of the latest Elliman Report covering the first quarter of 2017, authored by Jonathan Miller of Miller Samuel, is the fact the overall housing market in Miami is becoming more stable, both on the coastal mainland and the beach.
“Miami sellers traveled further to meet the buyers on price as they became more in sync with current conditions,” Miller said. “In 2016 the market reset after a multi-year boom giving sellers more time to adapt to the new market and as a result, we are entering a period of greater stability.”
