The Sun Shines Again in Miami - " . . . As in New York, the very high end of Miami’s market is surging. The buzz among top brokers here is of big-ticket sales to deep-pocketed international buyers, rather than foreclosures, painful lessons from easy credit and unrestrained speculation. After sitting on the sidelines during the crash, rich buyers started piling back in last year. “They realized that if they were going to buy they had better do it now,” said Jill Hertzberg, a broker with Coldwell Banker. Six homes sold on Star in 2011, Ms. Hertzberg said. The cheapest sale was a piece of land that went for about $6 million, and the most expensive was a 9-bedroom 11-bath home to Roustam Tariko, the founder of Russian Standard vodka, for $25.5 million. Throughout Miami, about 15 single-family homes sold for more than $6 million apiece in 2011, Ms. Hertzberg said. Of those, about 40 percent were sold to Russians, with the remainder split about evenly between Americans and South Americans, brokers said. . . ."
