R. Donohue Peebles, chairman & CEO of The Peebles Corporation, is a broker based in Miami. He believes there is a significant level of overbuilding on the high-end condo side in some cities like Miami and that is going to cause a problem. Real estate in markets like New York City and the San Francisco bay area will continue to do well because of the strong demand, but he’s cautious about elsewhere.
Miami is actually one of the few markets that Eric Bolling hasn’t completely written off in the housing sector. There’s so much money from Cuba and Venezuela flowing into southern Florida that he thinks the real estate market could stand to benefit, whereas the Northeast and California are so rich, he says.
