2nd QTR  Economic Report

Miami-Dade’s economy in the second quarter was able to maintain positive momentum, with steady private-sector-led improvements in the labor market.  Home sales and values rose in the period from January to June, and initial filings of home foreclosures fell for three consecutive quarters.  Commercial real estate in industrial, office and stand-alone retail space found occupancy rates and revenues per square foot improving. Consumers continue to show their willingness to increase spending, and businesses spent more on investment goods subject to sales taxes.  Despite a reduction in the value of foreign export shipments, international trade from local ports continues to expand and support local economic growth.
