Duo is a great condo with awesome amenities, and in a great location!
Good choice and kudos on having an excellent credit and solid income!

My VA clients used

Call them and see if they can help you buy there.
If they have any questions re. DUO Condominium - call me and I'll help
you answer those questions.

Another option in buying is to buy a townhouse instead of a condo.
Townhouse is like a house in financing, and is much easier.

Hope this helps,

Hemispheres is an older building where AC/Electricity is included in the condo maintenance fee.
The amenities are also very nice - including 2 Olympic size pools...

However, if the costs are too high for your budget - there many condos that don't have as high
fees...f.e. Winston Towers in Sunny Isles Beach (very low maintenance fees), across from the beach, also nice amenities.

Hope this helps,

Dear Jonathon,

This unit has sold already. Investors and clients looking for deals have been snapping up properties at a fast rate. My suggestion if you are looking for a bank owned property or a short sale is to work with someone who is a full-time Realtor and to ensure that you have all the documentation you need prepared and that in return the Realtor will provide you with updated info as soon as suitable properties are listed.

If you are buying cash please ensure that you have your updated Proof of Funds and that you have this
to submit with your residential contract for purchase.

If you are an overseas buyer please also note that for some banks they are requesting that the funds be here in the US and our bankers here (Believe it or not) are not always used to converting currencies or
understand that sometimes dates are written in different formats in different countries. Aproof of funds dated 2/8/12 means August 2nd in Europe and South America and not February 8th !!!. In a recent case a client was asked to provide an updated proof of funds even though the one presented was actually just days old.

Many of us here in the area are used to working with international clients and can advise you concerning any such pitfalls.

My NC Homes Team answered:
Listing agnet should be pressured by your agent to force the Seller to comply. Insist on getting an extenison in place to protect yourself and speak to an attorney. If you're having this much trouble getting in for an inspection, why do you believe the wife will vacate voluntarily if you were to close? YOu may end up having to evict her. Unless you can get her out sooner rather than later and have the rigth to inspect the house after she's left and the locks changed, I suggest walking away and demanding all your money back incluiding any expenses you incurred.

Sounds like you've stumbled into a highly charged and rather unusal situation and getting out may be the best advice you'll receive.

Quel bon idee ! j'ai etudie le francais mais j'ai oblis tous.

See my blog on Trulia about why I think investing in Hallandale is such a great casinos, lower taxes than Hollywood, financially sound city, beautiful beaches/park, that's going to be renovated soon, etc. And, Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville is coming soon to Hollywoood Browardwalk.

And, there are plenty of great deals/inventory at great prices, right now. I have lived in Hallandale for 11 years and am very active in the community. I am a realtor, mortgage broker, and LCAM property mgr. Let me know what kind of investment you're looking for. I can set up a customized search for you.

Tanya Tsveyer answered:
I live in La Mer for the past 3.5 years and I love it here. Almost all buildings (except 2080 Ocean Drive) on the sand in Hallandale are older. They were built between 1972 and 1974. La Mer went thru major renovations a few years ago including new gym, new lobby, new pool patio, new roof in the west and south buildings. As far as I know, all buildings on the ocean side have some kind of assessments, because they have to keep with the weather conditions.
I was told by the board of directors that they are planning to change the roof in the East building and only owners of the east building will be responsible for those assessments. Also, they are planning to change the lining of the pool and that cost will be spread among the owner of all three buildings.

In my opinion, La Mer, by far, supersedes most of the buildings in Hallandale and Hollywood with their amenities, location, security and beach line. I hope I answered your question. Please call me if I can help with any other questions. Thank you, Tanya Tsveyer 954-818-0760

Catherine Kim Owens answered:
which county is this property in? and are you the seller or the buyer?

If you're the seller, you have to pay as soon as possible, of course. However, there is some time, unless an investor purchased your tax certificate.

If you're the buyer, when you close, the title co. or the Lender will pay off the property taxes from the proceeds of the sale, before the remainder funds are wired to the seller or the seller's lender.

It's good to have an attorney to protect your interests in a short sale or an REO (bank-owned).

Gordon Buck answered:
Yes I would counter with $120k and have your agent run new comps to send to the listing agent. A good short sale deal is dependent on the listing agents ability to stand up to the bank and push for the close.

I was the listing agent on a BofA Short Sale where the bank countered the offer of $55k on a $50k listing. The bank wanted $96k with a $12k contribution and a $20k promissory note. I also had the buyer so we countered back with $55k cash 15 day close. They came back with $96k no note. We came back with the same offer and they countered with $96k no contribution. We countered back with the same amount including comps and pictures to back it up and then they accepted our offer.

Persistance is the name of the game when it comes to Short Sales.

Good Luck

Dear Mike,

Will you be financing or paying cash?

If you're financing, please make sure that you have at least 40-50% "seasoned" deposit money, meaning that it's been in an American financial institution for at least six months prior to your purchase).

If I can be of any further assistance, I'm a member of FIABCI/International Real Estate Federation and can be reached at
