We display property information on Trulia to provide consumers with transparent real estate information. We receive this information from public records gathered by a third-party data collector from your county. Our mission is to empower consumers with information and tools to make smart decisions about homes, real estate and mortgages. For this reason, we do not remove public record property information from Trulia.

Please be advised the image you are seeing is provided to us from Google images of which we do not have the ability to edit or remove. My recommendation would be to contact Google to request they blur out your home. Please feel free to use these steps:

How to get your property blurred:
1. On your Trulia Property Page, click 'View Map'.
2. Click 'Street View'.
3. Click 'Report a problem' found on the bottom right of the photo.
4. Fill out the form.
5. Click Submit.

Two words for Auction property. "Caveat Emptor"
Make sure you do your homework before bidding. You could be responsible for taxes, association dues, city fines, open permits, liens, auction company fees, commissions......the list goes on.

Good Luck

Hello Maria,

There are over 20 condominiums in Key Biscayne - primarily on the East where it meets Atlantic Ocean.

Currently, there are 71 homes offered for sale - from 1.599M to 27M.
The property you inquired about at 7 Harbor Point is a gorgeous 7 bedroom, 10 baths house of over 10,674 sqft. The lot is 22,860 sqft and it has been on the market for 67 days on 04.28.14.

It's hard to actually count homes (we'd need to go into Miami Dade tax records and actually count them - but the info their won't mention if the water view is canal or wide bay, f.e), but I can give you the names of the streets that offer waterfront views. S. Mashta Dr. faces Biscayne Bay Acquatic Preserve. N. Mashta Dr. faces same and also a harbor like inlet. Harbor Point, Bay Lane and Harbor Dr. face Biscayne Bay. Cape Florida Dr., Knoll Dr., Island Dr., Mariner Dr., W. Matheson Dr., and some W. Mashta Dr. homes face a canal. Homes are on the West side of the Island and the best views being those of Biscayne Bay. Surrounded by Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park on one side, and Crandon Park on the other side, Atlantic and Biscayne Bay on East and West - Key Biscayne is one of the most desired areas in Miami.

The best way to travel to Key Biscayne without living your home is to go on Google Earth.
You can literally move from one street to another while in the program. The next best thing is to come and see this beautiful area for yourself, in person.

Hope this was helpful,

Absolutely, my real estate attorney lives on Key Biscayne. Well to do families live in single family homes in Key Biscayne whereas the beach is condos. Key Biscayne is relatively free of crime, as thieves don't want to pay tolls to get to neighborhoods and it would be easy to shut down the bridges to stop them. It is a beautiful place to live, we've visited him there for decades. ... more

Most condos rent for longer periods than a week. It's probably smarter to just rent a hotel room if you're just staying 9 days.

Juliana, I've seen many homes, and never had a single customer ask about indoor air quality, other than in the context of chinese drywall or visible mold. Indoor air quality is a significant issue, and probably consumers should be more aware of the problem and ways to mitigate it. ... more

I would also add that their are a number of mitigation credits that many insurance agents are not applying to their clients' policies. In addition, you can also obtain discounts by bundling in autos, watercraft, etc.... There are only a handful of markets that cater to these types of high-end homes. Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss your options in greater detail, (786) 393-8331. ... more

If your interest in the property is high, rather than waiting and relying on pictures why not simply schedule a showing and see all firsthand...

With a 20% you think there may also be a cap for that increase? Market conditions make for quick sales. Inventory is low, demand is up, which also drives up selling prices. It really is up to you whether or not you want to sell. Logically, arrows point to a good time for sellers to sell.

Mott Marvin Kornicki answered:

It makes good sense! There could be other loans on the unit in addition to the first mortgage, the appraised value could be far in excess of the mortgage balances combined... and there could be a few other matters that we are not certain of. properties in that price range often take marketing time greater than the average to sell.

Everything makes sense and at the same time nothing does :)
