Macro Updates + Miami High end single family: best performing segment in August 2023

August numbers are in, and the prevailing trends remain strong:

1) For purposes of discussion, we have two markets: the very high and and everything else. --> August sales volume of SFH past $1K / SF was higher than last year, despite overall volume drops. (Contact me for on & off market opportunities & buildable lots)

2) Data quantifying macro trends pushing high value domestic migrants keeps coming in. It is my belief that forces pushing high net worth domestic migration are still in their infancy.

1) August Numbers: the high end continues to outperform

Buying waterfront on Palm Island, Hibiscus Island, La Gorce Island, etc...is like buying near Central Park in NYC 80 years ago. I discussed this with my friend Karen Apsrea, in the visionaries section of Miami Deal Sheet >

Miami Dade real estate, August sales volume of single family homes past $1K / SF

Both CA and NY lost close to $1 Trillion in assets, according to corporate filings.

And how remarkable is this:
"Connecticut, the hedge fund hub that’s long appealed to firms wanting to stay close to New York without being in the city, has now fallen behind Florida in assets under management."

The ramifications are staggering, both the negative and the positive. 


NYC tax rev taking a tumble. The Latin American playbook will accelerate.
