  • The Effect of Social Media on the Real Estate Market: Real or Faux

    Posted Under: Tech Tips in Miami Beach, Agent2Agent in Miami Beach, How To... in Miami Beach  |  March 14, 2014 7:43 AM  |  139 views  |  2 comments

    Social media has impacted just about everything since it became the phenomenon it is today. Among the things that have been the most affected, however, is business. Since the advent of social media, business has been done differently in many regards. Even though this is the case, social media has also made more apparent certain types of relationships that, perhaps counter intuitively, help people make connections through other connections that aren't actually all that strong.

    It's Not Always the People You Know

    The social media site LinkedIn, which caters principally to business clients, ran an article about the effect of social media on business. In recent and historic research, it is been demonstrated that people who have weak connections to one another oftentimes help each other more than one might think. In fact, a study on the matter referenced in the article revealed that, to disrupt a social network, the best way to do it isn’t necessarily to break down those connections between people who know one another the best. 

    Essentially, the strength in social media is that it allows people to make connections in a network beyond the network that they would typically think of as their own. Of course, where real estate is concerned, this has some rather powerful implications.

    Social Media in Real Estate

    There is a good deal of real estate that has to do with networking. Meeting the right people, finding the person who really wants the home or condominium property that’s on the market and so forth are all integral parts of being able to make a good deal. Social networking allows people to reach out outside of their own networks, which means that they’re more likely to be exposed to opportunities they may have otherwise never run into. As is the case with all other types of business, social networking really does play an important part in real estate these days.

  • Real Estate Surge Powers Florida Economy

    Posted Under: Market Conditions in Miami Beach, Home Buying in Miami Beach, Investment Properties in Miami Beach  |  March 12, 2014 11:44 AM  |  116 views  |  No comments

    The economy is back in full swing in southern Florida, and it is largely being powered by real estate. According to the Miami Herald, recent numbers show that real estate has been the #1 contributor to economic growth. In fact, $.31 of every dollar added to the economy comes from real estate.

    Currently, the tri-county area has an economy of $274 billion, which grew by 3.5% over the last year. This is the biggest increase in the economy since 2006 and it is ahead of the national average, which currently sits at 2.5%.

    This is a wonderful contrast to the stark reality of only five years ago. The Florida real estate market took one of the hardest hits during the Great Recession but, as many real estate experts predicted at the time, it has come roaring back to life. The new construction is rampant, there has been an increase in both the value of homes and the sale of homes – which is good news for buyers and sellers – and the real estate market itself has done 8.4% better than it did in 2011, according to the reporting.

    Helping the Economy

    The real estate uptick in Florida has helped the entire economy. During 2012 the amount of government spending was essentially flat. The activity in the real estate market, however, has helped the economy tremendously, aiding in offsetting some of the declines in government spending and some of the significant drags on the economy, according to the Miami Herald.

    One of economist from St. Thomas University notes that real estate is one of the most fundamental areas where economic recovery needs to happen. According to the numbers, real estate is, indeed, providing a vital foundation for further economic growth and, with many new properties coming onto the market, it’s likely that new money will be added to the economy through the real estate sector at an impressive rate.
