Douglas Elliman executive director of sales Dina Goldentayer discusses Florida’s red-hot housing market as demand continues to rise on ‘Mornings with Maria.’
Florida’s red-hot real estate market is not expected to cool anytime soon as researchers predict Miami home prices will defy a 2023 cost correction and continue to rise.
U.S. existing home sales slowed for the 11th consecutive month in December as higher mortgage rates, surging inflation and steep home prices sapped consumer demand from the housing market.

But with an unprecedented amount of homebuyers flocking to the Sunshine State, realtors are still grappling with an inventory problem.
A ‘Mornings with Maria’ panel discusses how Florida’s newest safety requirements for high-rise condos and apartments will impact homeowners.
“Inventory is still quite limited. You know, a year ago, if I had a buyer fly in, we may be able to see five to eight homes. Now, I could see I could show that same buyer eight to 12 homes. But the inventory is still quite limited,” Goldentayer said Friday.
