The Design District grows more and more, and the condo-hotels gain strength and followers. In earlier times, Miami was considered a tourist city, beach, or a stopover for other destinations in the United States. Now it is the final destination of many, not only emigrants or tourists but, above all, business executives. According to the US Bureau of the Census and Statistics, Miami has been growing strongly for two years, after registering a significant increase in the real estate investment index, especially in the neighborhoods of Brickell Downtown, Wynwood, Edgewater and the Design District.

The increase of population, together with the continuous expansion of the city as high tech and commercial financial center, make it forecast that Miami will become the second most important city in the United States after New York. In this way, the trends of real estate purchases are also changing: they go from being merely tourist to being more focused on flexible uses for those who come and go.

“All this growth has had the effect that the most central neighborhoods of Miami such as the Design District, Edgewater and Wynwood were transformed so quickly that in a short time entire neighborhoods will be unrecognizable,” said Richard Tallman.

This is why real estate sales trends have been changing, from being only tourist to focusing more on the subject that comes and goes for business, or other activities. This change in the profile of the people who now visit Miami has led to a new trend in the Condo Hotels, a convenient type of acquisition for many people since it gives them the opportunity of a double benefit: the convenience of having their own place in Miami and rent it to generate income while the owner is not occupying the property.
