Greetings Gabriele!

Your guess was correct, it was in fact a short sale. (It actually just went under contract, but it is accepting back-up offers, probably with a preference for cash buyers). I'm not sure the price is actually too far off market. It was previously listed for about $150K from about July 2010 to September 2012. Clearly, they needed an offer to take to the bank, and they just got one.

The community also requires at least a 6 month lease, making it less attractive to those who are looking for short term rentals.

Let me know if there's any other information you need!

Hi Gabriele,
The unit is an unapprovd short sale, and it has a contract on it at this time.
The reason it seems priced under market value is because the agent is trying to "estimate" what the bank may take for the unit, and they are likely estimating too low.
Once the bank does an appraisal the price will likely change for the current buyer, and they may cancel the contract.

I suggest if you are looking for a good deal in the south beach area that you contact a local realtor for guidance.
Good Luck!
