Miami’s real estate business had for a long time been unaffordable to locals seeking to own a home, invest or rent an office space. The region has a history of attracting lucrative business persons who can afford to keep up with the ebb and flow of the enterprise. In 2016, Miami’s residential market began cooling off significantly. According to the year’s quarterly reports by Douglas Elliman and Miller Samuel real estate Appraisers and Consultants, the prices of homes fell by approximately 25 percent. Those numbers reflected the status of both single-family homes and condos in Bay Harbor Islands, Sunny Isle Beach, Bal Harbour, Key Biscayne and Fishet Island. Previously, it was difficult for clients to find affordable single family homes due to a decline in construction, which led to an increase in price for the few available properties. With the market shifting to focus on the buyers’ needs, sellers are looking to reduce prices to fit the rapid economic changes.
Samuel Strauch, the current principal at Metrik real estate, noticed an alteration in property business when he moved down to Miami. He realized that there was a new spring of housing developments that was converting the beach from a sole vacation beach to a metropolitan area. He set up his firm to unite the growing needs of clients with investors. Samuel Strauch combines creativity and a strong vision to bring ideas to life and create a win-win situation for partners, investors and his team.
Currently, Samuel Strauch is among the 13 percent of the best real estate seller’s in Miami Beach, among 6000 agents. He is a fast seller with an impressive portfolio in the sale of condos. Samuel has 18 years of experience in the niche and aims to represent the buyer approximately 78 percent of the time. Samuel Strauch is an alumnus of Hofstra University, Erasmus University, and Harvard University.
