                All of the things in the market these days have varying values and these values change all the time. Some prices of products go up every month, others every year. There are those products whose prices are so volatile they could change every day. There are also those products whose value just does not really get better with time; these products just get cheaper and cheaper as time goes by, usually because newer products of the same type come out making the older ones obsolete. Then there are those things that just generally get more and more valuable as time passes by. There will always be fluctuations and from time to time their values will drop a bit. However, no matter how many fluctuations happens, their prices go up as time passes.

                A prime example of this is property in Miami. Miami is a very popular city and is visted by hundreds of thousands a year and a lot of them decide that they want to stay and live there. Apartments for sale in Miami go for high prices these days and it would be great if you bought one now. Why?
