South Beach real estate sales are up for June. The Miami Herald has reported that for the last nine months overall sales were up. Buyers are collecting luxury properties at substandard rates. New lending programs are making purchases somewhat easier. Plus, new buyers can get tax credits and all Miami property owners can take advantage of caps on property taxes. As the dollar is still comparatively weak, an influx of international buyers have swept Miami properties. Be on the lookout for forclosures and short sales, buy it up Miami Beach!
