All the realtors gave you great responses...just one thing to remember. There are alot of townhomes in the Kendall area that are short sales, if you have the time to invest in this, you still need to work with a realtor who is familiar with the process...the same goes for REO's. Both of these, especially short sales are a different animal and I HIGHLY recommend using a realtor who has either helped buyers close REO's and short sales before or in the case of short sales, has listed them and therefore knows the correct chain of events and things to pay attention to when you make your offer. Any questions feel free to contact me, I have listed and sold many short sales and REO's and my business partner and I know are familiar with the whole proceedure...Also remember to pay attention to HOA fees, these can make a huge difference to your monthly out of pocket expenses!
I live and work in 33186 and yes there are may homes for sale in Kendall. However the first thing you should do is to call a Morgage Broker or go to your bank and see "how much home you can afford" so you know exactly what to look for.They will not charge you anything and you will know if buying is a good option for you.
If you need a reliable Mortgage Brocker i can referr you to one. As first time buyer you may also qualify for a $8,000Tax Credit if you buy before Nov 30/ 09.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions,
Thank you for your inquiry. I agree, this is a great time to buy, especially if you do not have to sell first, and with over 31000 properties on the market in Miami-Dade county alone, there should be a house out there that meets your criteria.
