Location matters. Crime, schools, etc. vary incredibly in Miami. Check the crime statistics for the specific zip code you're looking at. More importantly, understand that we have some of the craziest traffic in the country. Please consider living close to where you'll work or go to school. I've dealt with both Southcom and SocSouth clients, so if you have questions, please feel free to give me a call.
Also, nearly everyone moving to Miami is shocked by the high price of renting here. Best of luck and welcome to sunny Florida! Ann... more

This is not the market for such transactions ... I would choose to go after one or the other, rent ot buy but banks REOs & Short Sales ... about 75% of the market wont even consider them and traditioanl sellers or landllords either want to sell or rent, there's no motivation to rent-option unless you're prepared to "drop" a sizeable, forfeitable option money deposit.

You probably can; it would depend on their local restrictions:
Your biggest problem is that you probably cannot bid high enough to get it;
The Bank usually bids the amount of the payoff, and that would be more than the house is worth.
A lot of people, the last few years, have tried to find ways around foreclosures and shortsales, and it really cannot be done.
Your sister owes more than the house is worth, and that money has to come from somewhere.
If you have money coming out the wazoo, you could just arrange with her bank to get her current, but that would not be a wise financial decision; it would save her home and keep her from moving, but....... more

Talk to a local realtor and ask to be referred to a local mortgage lender. These are not the big banks, but smaller companies that specialize in writing mortgages. They will look at your particular situation and let you know what you can qualify for today, what, if any, issues need to be cleared up and how much you can expect to comfortably spend on a house. If you don't qualify for some reason, they will tell you the reason, how to fix it and how long it will take so that you CAN buy a home as soon as possible. In New Jersey I work with Annie Mac Mortgage. See what your local professionals recommend.... more
