Depending on your budget, good "walkability" close to the beach would be Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, A SFH always does better than a condo. When you're ready to find a great real estate agent, I'm ready to apply for the job.

Bonita Av is a beautiful street in Coconut Grove; the only house available on this street at the moment is 4130 Bonita with 2, 559sf; it is possible that the listing you are looking at is no longer available. 2938 Catalina looks good too.
Let me know if I can assist further.

This is not the area for Tullia administration, it is realtors that answer consumer questions. You may want to contact Trulia with this. Not every property that is sold is put into the system, and if it does get inot the system it can take awhile, that is a very recent closing.

You ask a very valid question regarding any possible assessments for this building or any other you may be considering. The easiest way to obtain this information is from a unit owner that has his/her property on the market for sale. A part of the due process you will follow is to obtain the financial status of the association and if there is a pending or upcoming special assessment, the seller is required to disclose this information as well as the association. A reading of the board meeting minutes can also provide you with some insight into what the special assessment could be for as well as the costs to each unit owner. You do not want to go on second hand information as this could be wrong, you will want to go directly to the accurate source. If you are working with a realtor he/she may be able to get you this information for you, so that you have a better idea of what may be happening at Yacht Harbor. Good luck with your search, and if you should have additional questions, please feel free to contact me, 305-772-2521.

If you're thinking about Northeast Coconut Grove, a Realtor in that area can give you specific info about the market situation that might help you make a decision for that locale.
In some markets, having a condo you own and visit 4 weeks per year could be a good way to invest and at the same time, have a place to stay when you visit.
If the rental market is strong, especially 'executive' rental market or vacationing renters are available then you may have a good fit.
I recently sold a condo in downtown Boulder, Colorado to a buyer that visits Boulder for 3 to 4 weeks at a time but spends most of her time out of the U.S. It's a perfect fit for her and the market has been strong for many years here (both resale and rental) so she should see reasonably good appreciation on her investment as well as have the fall-back position of renting if she feels she needs the added cash flow on the property.
If you have a similar situation where you're considering buying, it could be good for you also.... more

The best area that is close to the airport that will have the best prices will be central to Noth Miami beach, from the 50's to 8oth st.
There are a large variety of conds form older walk up style to new buildings. I would really need to know your price range before I can really give you the best advice, but here is a link to several good options at different price rages.
When you open the link, click on the arrow to see all of the properties.
Also keep in mind that many condo cannot be finnced, they must be cash offers due to bank guidelines.

I'll be happy to help you with those areas. First, I need to know exactly what you are looking for. Is this for you to live in, or is it an investment? What price range are you looking at? What are the most important aspects of your purchase?
Call me and we can talk about it.
The four condo buildings you refer to are all excellent well-maintained well-run buildings. I am not aware of any new or pending assesments. Yacht Harbour is the oldest building. It has been recently upgraded and the Ken Triester lobby etc lightened as much as possible. The balconies are huge, really another whole room! Grove Towers, accross the street from Yacht harbour is again an excellent building with its own character. Grove Towers is a beautiful well layed out building, Grove Hill is older and Grosvenor House is the crown jewel of Batshore Drive. Each development has a very distinctive personality, all equally acceptable. The price range varies depending on age, updates, size etc. The maintainance fee varies also from building to building depending on the amenities and how many units share the cost. Each building has its followers and all are good to oustanding. If money is no object look first at Grosvenor House. If your budget is tight start with Grove Hill. One big plus of the newer buildings is they have hurricane proof windows. Not only do they keep the wind at bay but keep the traffic noise and Saturday night party noise out. A major consideration. Both short and long term I think the buildings mentioned are a good investment and a wonderful, convenient, fun place to live. LynnvT Miami Realtor... more
