Buying a condo in 9 Island on Belle Island Miami. Is that a good idea? Older building but great views location

Asked by Maria, Miami Beach, FL Thu May 7, 2009

Other option for me to get a nice big condo and views would be downtown, Ten Museum, what should I go for?
I plan to rent the condo while I'm not there, it's a second home.

Javier is right, make sure to check the rental policies of whichever building you're going to buy in, especially if you plan to rent short term as many buildings have minimum rental periods (like 6 mos. minimum or yearly minimum). I find that it is usually easier to find renters short term on the beach, but downtown is also desirable.

Since it's your second home, you should consider how you'll enjoy it most when you're there as well, for example do you like to spend every day at the beach? Then go with the Belle Island, but if you're a spa person, Ten Museum's La Prairie would be awesome too. Good luck!

Best regards,

9 Isle is a cool place, look at the maintenance fee and make sure of their rental policy.
good luck.
