Unfortunately, it varies depending on the association. I have had clients get approved in as little as a few days, and I've also had clients who went through a length approval process that took several weeks. Keep reaching out to the board members so that you stay on the top of their minds until they complete the approval process and get back to you. ... more

Elizabeth, there is no way to answer this question in this (and even most) market environments without knowing more about the building you are considering.

Occupancy rates will vary from building to building and in SoBe, these are more seasonal than in other areas (although many rent yearly), and are very much affected by the condo rules where you buy with respect to when can an owner rent, how often can the owner rent (be mindful of current laws about this due to tax rules), if parking is available or included, weather they allow pets, the condition of the building, etc.

Most buildings in SoBe are mostly tenant occupied, while others are mostly owner occupied. Once you norrow your choice to a few buildings, you may contact a local professional Realtor and/or the condo association. Often they can help you with specific information about the building you're considering.

Depending on what you are looking to gain from your investment, you may even want to consider a condo-hotel type property. If you don't think you'll want to worry about maintenance and other issues, these may provide an opportunity for you as well.

That way, you may use it on occassion as you see fit, rent it through their rental program the rest of the time letting them worry about every detail or even, on your own.

Just make sure you consider your goals regardless of the property type you want.
