In July of last year, spending for construction purposes increased in Miami, as it continued to rise in Broward County as well. Broward County spent just as much in real estate related costs as in city of Miami. Much of this spending is due to the increase on custom built homes. Areas in which this is occurring are Key Biscayne, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove and Pinecrest. Foreigners are also a major contribution to this spending.
