Help the community by answering this question:


You can find condo warehouses for a lot less than $200K depending on location of course. This is not a "living house" situation but maybe you are willing to consider the option. While you may be able to obtain financing it may be the Seller the one opposing to accept an offer subject to financing for this kind of property. May I suggest a house with a 2 car garage or even maybe a detached workshop?

Financing a warehouse will be tough, because you are not buying an "income" property.
Buying a house in Wynwood or around will be great, because the values in the area will be rising in the future, and so it will be a good investment. I agree with the separate "good lighting" studio being a good option. Or, maybe a 2 story condominium with the loft...

Buying a house would be easiest in terms of getting financing (comparing to a condo or a commercial purchase). However, beware of code violations (we have a lot of those in Miami Dade county).

Hope this helps,

Be careful as a Retire Firefighter and Fire Inspector I can tell you that it will be nearly impossible to find a warehouse that you can live in, because it is against the Fire Code. Your first fire inspection the inspector will see the living quarters and tell you that they will need to be removed. I think your best bet Is a nice house with a detached garage that you can use for your studio. The three areas that I think you may like and has a high concentration of artists is Wynwood, Coconut Grove and West Miami near Bird Road and 72 AV. Should you have any other question, I will be happy to help in anyway possible.
