Itching to spend $10 million for a house on Miami Beach but worried that they’ll be sold out when you get there? If this sounds like you then A) please call me immediately!! and B) you can relax for now. That’s because there are currently 70 single family houses on Miami Beach asking more than $10 million dollars. Add in condo’s and that number goes to 110. Plenty for everyone!
