South Florida home sales, prices rise by double digits in July

August 22nd, 2013 Written By Carol Pawley

generic-home-price-imageSouth Florida’s real estate market is on fire! In July more single-family homes were sold in Miami-Dade County than at any time since the peak of the boom. The reason for this driving market is supply and demand.

The Miami Association of Realtors said the median price of a single-family home in Miami-Dade soared 25.7%t in July to $230,000 from $183,000 a year earlier and single-family home sales in Miami-Dade jumped 27.3%t in July to 1,227 closings from 964 a year earlier. The highest sales volume since 2005, when the median price was $351,200.

Miami-Dade condo sales rose 13.4% in July to 1,538 closings from 1,356 a year earlier, as listings rose 13.5% to 8,458 units from 7,451 units a year earlier. Miami-Dade had a six-month supply of condos for sale in July, up from 5.6 months a year earlier and a 5.8-month supply in June. Miami-Dade condo sales were up 2.6% in July from June’s level of 1,499 closings and the median price of a condo was down 3%from $185,500 in June. The median days a Miami-Dade condo was on the market was 45 days, up from 42 days in July 2012.

Ron Shuffield, president of EWM Realty International in Coral Gables, said the increase in inventory of condos reflects, in part, “sellers who have been holding off and waiting for prices to go up and have now decided it’s an appropriate time,” as well as more bank-owned properties coming on the market. “It’s welcome news for Realtors. We could use more inventory to sell. It also could help to temper some of these price increases we’ve been seeing,” Shuffield said.

Battle Hack

July 1st, 2013 Written By Carol Pawley


Tel Aviv, Seattle, New York City, Berlin, you’ve been warned: Miami is ready to out-hack you.

Miami’s growing tech community was chosen as one of 10 “Battle Cities” in PayPal’s upcoming $100,000 competition called Battle Hack. The winner of the South Florida hackathon, scheduled for Aug. 24 and 25, will go on to compete in Silicon Valley against the winning teams from each of the 10 cities, which also include Moscow, Austin, London, Barcelona and Washington, D.C.

John Lunn, global director of PayPal developer relations, said the ultimate goal of the Battle Hack “is to find the world’s best hackers.” Miami was chosen for PayPal’s first global hackathon, he said, because PayPal looked for burgeoning tech communities with high concentrations of startups. Lunn also said Miami’s role as a Latin American gateway made the city particularly attractive.

Hackathons, which are events where teams of participants typically try to build an application in a day or weekend, have become fairly common in South Florida, with large ones such as recent AT&T hackathons drawing hundreds to more specialized events for civic projects, art, law and medicine. But the organizers of Miami’s Battle Hack are trying to kick this hackathon up a few notches.

The winning team from Battle Hack Miami in August will compete in a world championship for a $100,000 prize. There will also be prizes valued at about $25,000, $15,000 and $10,000 for the top three finishers in the Miami hackathon, and organizers hope to draw at least 200 participants from South Florida’s developer community.

Events like these can help to shine a light on the talent within South Florida’s tech community, said Diane Sanchez, CEO of the Technology Foundation of the Americas, which is bringing the eMerge Americasconference to South Florida next May. Getting Miami on the map as a Battle City was largely her work after visiting PayPal’s booth at Austin’s SXSW in March. Once she convinced PayPal executives Miami had plenty of high-caliber developers and the city was selected, she assembled a group of more than a dozen leaders from the tri-county development community, including Andrej Kostresevic, founder of New Frontier Nomads who has been involved in organizing many South Florida hackathons, Sanjay Deo, a cyber security expert, Carlos Garcia, CEO of Nobox, Brian Breslin and Peter Martinez, co-directors of Refresh Miami, and representatives from Miami Dade College, Florida International University, Nova Southeastern University, University of Miami and Florida Atlantic University.

“The Foundation is doing the right thing in presenting Miami as a tech hub,” said Deo, founder and president of 24By7Security. “We are producing fine graduates, there is great technology being produced, but there are not a lot of platforms to showcase Miami as a tech hub. We are now taking it to the next level to showcase what we have,” said Deo, who has also been involved in the Group of Groups, CIO Council and ITPalooza.

The local hackathon will begin Saturday morning, include exactly 24 hours for hacking, and end Sunday evening in presentations to the judges and the awarding of prizes. The venue is going through final approval processes and will be released soon. Participants will be using PayPal’s API and will be charged with developing technology “for the social good” that would help their region. “You have to come with an idea to make your city better,” said Lunn.

A panel of judges from the local and national tech community will judge the hacks on implementation, innovation and real world usability, according to PayPal rules.

At this hackathon, participants will not have to start cold. There will be mixers scheduled over the next few months in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties so that teams can begin forming and ideas can be hatched. The first one is scheduled for July 18. Watch for more information.

The winning team of the Miami battle will represent the region with an expense-paid trip to San Jose, Calif., to compete for the grand prize. At that championship, the teams will have to come up with an original hack project for the competition, Lunn said.
