How has the luxury real estate market in Southwest Ranches/Weston been performing so far in 2020?
We have seen a very solid market so far this year, with some record-breaking deals closed and under contract in our market. The client demographic has been changing over time, due to some economic variables, such as the strong dollar, making the domestic US buyer the primary multi-million dollar buyer currently in the South Florida Market. This scenario was a whole lot different two or three years ago, where foreign buyers, mainly from South and Latin America, controlling a big portion of the luxury market. We are very optimistic for 2020 and we truly hope that the current Coronavirus Outbreak does not disrupt the positive cycle we are experiencing in the luxury market of South Florida.
