Florida’s Record-breaking Luxury Home sales
and Business relocation in 2020
January 18, 2021
For many Years, Florida has remained #1 in the United States for having the highest number of vacation properties sold to International and Domestic Buyers. What are the market trends? During 2020, more Buyers than ever before purchased luxury Homes in South Florida as they relocated from States in the Northeast such as New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, and also moved from California and other States. Instead of just buying a secondary Residence, many are now relocating to Florida as their primary Residence. The wealthy end of the Market swelled across the major Markets of South Florida, as well as Tampa and St. Petersburg since the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Those who predicted that Coronavirus would depress sales of South Florida’s Real Estate and contribute to declining property values were proven to be wrong.
Single Family Homes recorded the highest number of Sales. Continuing into 2021, the Inventory of Single Family Homes is low/insufficient to meet the high level of Buyer demand and limited supply is driving prices up.
In addition to Buyers purchasing luxury Homes, Businesses and their Executives are relocating to Florida as well, including Technology Companies, Financial Firms, Wall Street Executives, Hedge Fund Managers, Bankers, and others.
Florida’s low Taxes, warm weather, Homes located on the Beach and near the Beach, Waterfront properties with Dockage for Yachts and other Vessels, Golf Course Communities, the work-from-home revolution, numerous high quality lifestyle choices, and easy flight access to New York, other States, and International destinations are several of the most compelling reasons that are driving current relocations and purchase activities.
