I love this question! Miami Shores is a great community! How well aware are you of your surroundings? Are you an easy target? You can take precaution to protect yourself and family from being a victim. Contact the local police department for a statistics and ideas on the best way to protect yourself and family wherever you decide to buy or shop. Motion Sensor lights on each corner of your home are an effective way to deter activity. Make friends with your neighbors so the word is out that the neighbors monitor eachother.

All the Best!

You must do some research on your own, either on the internet most towns have a website of their own,
and remember each person needs something different and each person considers neighborhoods in a different way, all based on what they like or do not like etc. Furthermore REaltors are by law not permitted
to steer by any means buyer into or away from any neighborhood for any reason s t e e r i n g its against
the law!!!
If unfamiliar with the area, do take the time and visit more than once, possibly chat with locals/neighbors; check out area statistics on websites on the internet...

Take care!

Hi Dan,

The condo fees in Miami are different depending on many factors including, but not limited to, the size of the unit, amenities included, etc. Knowing the address on the property would make it easier and I'll be glad to verify maint. fees for you, but I'm going out on a limb with a couple of guesses here - the $602 seems more like a condo fee for a two bedroom unit in a decent building - maybe that price is either excellent or the unit has serious problems. It could also be that the $602 is just a mistake by the Realtor (you know that does actually happen) :) It could be that you're looking at a small, boutique building with luxury amenities, but then the price would be higher, so I doubt that. The other option is that the building has several unit owners who are in default with their maint. payments and therefore the association has decided to raise the maint. fees for all unit owners in order to make up for those who aren't paying. That is an unfortunate possibility.

Feel free to email me the address of the property of interest and I can take a look and see if it's a mistake or what the deal is. My gut feeling is that the price/maint. fee ratio is totally out of whack and there might be a mistake somewhere, but, as I explained above, there could be a true reason for the high fee.

Best regards,
