Sotheby’s will be working together with the immensely popular rapper Drake for an upcoming exhibition showcasing contemporary works by black American artists. As one of today’s “foremost cultural tastemakers,” much of Drake’s work is inspired by visual art. Sotheby’s chose Drake to select music that will accompany about 20 works during preview. Visitors of the exhibition will have the chance to experience Drake’s picks at listening stations throughout the Sotheby’s gallery. The works, by artists like Rashid Johnson, Nick Cave, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, will be on sale at the auction house’s New York headquarters from April 28th to June 12th.

An article recently published on www.thenextmiami.com displays the top 40 most important cities to ultra-high-net-worth individuals in 2015. The list, compiled using data from the Knight-Frank Global Cities survey, shows Miami in sixth place, an improvement from last year’s seventh place ranking. New York is the only place in the western hemisphere that holds a higher ranking.
Miami’s sixth place spot is attributed to ‘huge waves’ of Latin American assets flowing into Miami for both condos and commercial investments. Another attributing factor seems to be ultra-high-net-worth Chinese investors steadily gaining interest in Miami. It is also predicted that private investors from Hong Kong will follow developer Swire into Miami.

ONE Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to announce the launch of the 2015 TRENDS Market Report. Released annually with quarterly updates, the comprehensive analysis of real estate market activity in Miami-Dade & Broward keeps audiences up to date on luxury trends at the macro and micro level. This year, we raised the bar by partnering with IRR (Integra Realty Resources) – Miami \ Palm Beach, the premier real estate consulting firm in the nation. Together with some of our top agents, we examined what’s driving each individual market and how it impacts Miami-Dade and Broward counties as a whole.
The report concludes that both Broward and Miami-Dade are thriving. Many of our submarkets performed best during 2014 out of each of the five years analyzed (2010-2014). However, we’re not seeing the double-digit growth like we did a couple of years ago, which we interpret positively. Report data shows that the ever-evolving market is stabilizing while still improving year over year, and this high level summary is grounded in 50+ pages of detailed graphs and charts.
Created to provide actionable insight into key submarkets, we hope that you find the report useful and insightful as you explore one of the most dynamic housing markets in the United States today. Please reach out to a ONE Sotheby’s International Realty agent to provide property-specific advice, we stand ready to assist with further questions and comments!
