What solution do you want? Miami doesnít have a lot of room to keep building single family homes so supply canít keep growing except through high rises. Force higher wages or cap real estate values through legislation? Neither is going to happen.

If enough people leave an area, demand goes down and prices go down. If people donít leave or people move in, demand and prices go up. Eventually if employers canít find workers because workers canít find housing, they either raise wages or leave the area. I am not familiar with the Herald study but find it hard to believe there isnít a more than insignificant impact from foreign and out of state buyers.
