Hello February! Or should I say hello Super Bowl mania in Miami ! 
The Super Bowl has taken over our city!  All we hear around town is "The best Super Bowl city ever" " The weather is gorgeous". " It's Paradise"  
The Buzz is contagious! 
Here is a link to Super Bowl events:
If you are in town, you get tired of Superbowl Mania and decide you want some quiet real estate time ( ! )  feel free to call me.   I'm happy to show you some of the city's Best 
I've made a short list below of some exceptional properties.  This is a ripe time to buy.    Prices are down, inventory is up and sellers are negotiating. 
IN THE NEWS.    It seems that Miami is starting to be ebusy again.  Suddenly, everywhere we turn, there is a New Yorker setting roots down in Miami. I have highlighted below an article by  Finance and Commerce which speaks about the real estate market world-wide for 2020. This is what they have to say about Miami. 
"Miami's high-end condo market, on the other hand, is poised for something of a comeback in 2020, helped by President Trump's tax overhaul, which capped federal deductions on state and local taxes, according to Knight Frank.   While South Americans pulled away in recent years as the strengthening dollar added to the cost of buying in the U.S., domestic buyers are making up for it: Florida, which has no income tax, is drawing wealthy buyers from high-tax states like New York and New Jersey. Those buyers will push up Miami high-end prices by 5% in 2020, Knight Frank says." 
I wish you a wonderful month of February, a Happy Valentine's day and I know you will enjoy the Super Bowl wherever you are in the world. 
Warm Regards,

Super Bowl Tickets on Track to Break Record, with Miami the "Best City in America" to Host the Game
Ticket prices for next week's Super Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium are on track to break a record.
As of this afternoon, the average resale ticket price is $7,622, according to data from Seatgeek. That is higher than any other Super Bowl was tracking at the same time before kickoff.
The most expensive Super Bowl in history was two years ago in Minnesota, when the Eagles defeated the Patriots.
One reason for the high prices is likely the fact that the event is being held in Miami. After years of being held in "terrible cities," the game is returning to what Liv Nightclub owner David Grutman calls the "best city in America" to host such an event.
With the game being held in Miami, prices were already higher on average than all of the most expensive Super Bowls in history, even before the championship teams were determined last week.
Prices still surged after championship games were won by Kansas City and San Francisco last week.

How Luxury Real Estate will change 
in 2020
By Bloomberg News
Sellers of pricey properties in Vancouver next year will likely still be feeling the hangover from the drawback of Chinese buyers and foreign buyer tax measures that were introduced in 2016 to cool runaway prices. (Bloomberg file photo).
Rich homebuyers laid low in 2019 as economic uncertainties turned global cities into risky propositions.

But don't be surprised next year to spot the world's wealthiest people beginning to spend money again as home prices in relatively stable economic areas continue to sink into bargain territory.

In a few cities, prices are even set to rise, according to global property consultancy Knight Frank.

Paris leads the agency's 2020 forecast, with a 7% luxury price increase, followed by Miami and Berlin, where luxury units are also relatively affordable and in short supply.

"Working with Joelle was an absolute pleasure. We bought and sold one unit in six months for a substantial gain, Then repurchase a newer better "Off the Market" unit. She is tenacious and honest and has the utmost integrity. The key is to trust their ways and it will all come together. She knows the market well and is "in the know" of deals happening. The people that make up this business are hard working and accurate. I chose Joelle for all these reasons and is my realtor I will continue to use in the future."
