In addition , most real estate transactions are made in cash , because " the bank still with enough restrictions" in providing credit , he said.

According to the Miami Association of Realtors , international sales accounted for 60 percent of total sales of resale and 90 percent of new construction .

A typical case of this flow of foreign money that comes to the rescue of the market is the Icon Brickell luxury condominiums , most of which was held by lenders when the real estate market collapsed in 2008 and 2009.

The complex of 1,800 units , the work of the developer Related Group , who until recently lived very low sales hours , has seen a marked improvement in the business opportunity that involves falling prices .
