Popularity of Miami Luxury Real Estate, with Good Reason

There is a multitude of reasons why investors decide that Miami is a good location to invest in real estate. One of the biggest benefits that the State of Florida is bolstered by when it comes to those, especially the more financially prominent, that look to make Florida their home, is state taxes. Florida has no state income tax whatsoever, and a good way of looking at it is that essentially you are receiving a discount, or being paid to reside in our great state and enjoy all of the beautiful amenities of one of the best places to live in the United States. For those with large incomes, the cities of New York and Los Angeles both boast an income tax rate in the ballpark of 10% annually, equating to a large amount of savings at the close of the tax season.

Miami is also viewed as a capital city in regards to Latin American culture, and high-profile properties are purchased by Latin American investors. South America has had issues in the past with several different financial problems related to instability in currencies and governments, and many prominent businessmen and other investors look to protect their assets against the potentiality of financial misfortunes that could befall them in their homelands.

Another major benefit for those that are interested in purchasing real estate in South Florida has the economic connotations and causalities that stem from the increased amount of currency being printed in our country. Real estate can be considered second to gold when it comes to tangible currency in downturned financial environments, and many investors look to purchase real estate, especially in times of political duress.
