You know we are not fans of compiling real estate market reports for whole cities because of the local nature of pricing and marketing. But we also know it is helpful to look at overall numbers to see how the Miami and Miami Beach real estate markets are behaving. We have shared Realtor.com market reports in the past and now we will share Elliman Reports for Miami Homes, Miami Condos, Miami Beach homes and Miami Beach condos. We cannot stress enough the importance of requesting a comparable market analysis for your own property, one that compares properties in the near vicinity of your home or condo. Localized market reports also help focus in your particular area, we prepare those on a monthly basis according to our readers’ needs. If you want to know how your particular area is doing, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
