The March 2020 report from the Miami Association of Realtors, shows an increase of sales in the real estate market.  “The Miami real estate market extended its run of solid expansion through March 2020,” said Jorge L. Guerra Jr. the association’s chairman of the board.  “While COVID-19 is expected to temporarily impact home sales on a global level, we remain optimistic the robust fundamentals of the South Florida housing market will minimize the impact and sales activity will resume later in the year, as things normalize and pent-up demand builds.”

Before COVID-19, South Florida real estate sales were increasing, and even though the market has slowed down, it is expected for the south Florida real estate market to bounce back.

We are here to offer solutions to our clients, even during COVID-19 we have adapted to the needs of our clients and our industry providing many options for closings following social distancing measures from drive-in curbside closings to remote online notarization.

Remote online notarization offers real estate professionals the benefit to close transactions in which one of the parties is out of town, giving them the opportunity to provide a suitable closing experience.  

The South Florida real estate industry remains active; there are still opportunities to find buyers and sellers. Realtors and brokers are offering virtual showings  and regular showings when it is possible, always following social distancing.  Realtors should be using this time to enhance their social media presence, build their following, and gain interested buyers for now as well as after this pandemic ends.
