Scott is correct, most lenders will require 3 years from bankruptcy and foreclosure before offering financing to you. Northpointe Bank has developed a unique loan product that will permit financing after 2 years from a short sale, bankruptcy or foreclosure. Of course there are rules and guidelines we have to follow, but I would be happy to discuss your situation with you to see if we are able to qualify you for a new home loan.

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!

I would recomend to shift your focus, rather than consider or focus on the houses that are significanly over price concentrate on the ones priced correctly. knowing the market and being prepared to make your choice is important, understanding flow of transaction and recieving a buyers consultation is crucial. We just had a house on the East side of Miami Shores in our inventory, it was listed for approx. 5-7 days prior to recieving offers. it was over 2,000 sq ft on a large lot and it was priced at the low 300' - we take listings only when owners co-operate with us and price correctly, this creates a situation that excluding contract faliures most of our listings go into contrat within the first 20 days on market. In a merket with a glutt of homes that are over priced when a property hits the market at a price level in which homes actually sell there is bound to be much interest i will only re-enforce again that working with an agent that :
Knows the market
Fully understand Short Sales
Versed and experienced in volume foreclosures
Can guide you and consult on contracts and flow of transaction
Does enough volume to know the different ways in which each individuale institutional seller and dominant agent in the market works
All are going to be your ingreedients for success

The most that the annual taxes should be is around $4-5K. It is possible that the assessed value is near $700K- in that case the taxes would be a bit more accurate. Is this a short-sale offering? If so, that could be the reason for the "low" asking price- I know that you say it is bank owned- I would do some research- ask your agent to do some investigating.

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,

MS-I answered:
There is no great deal in real estate except for realtors. If there was a great deal - do you think that the realtors would let you have the property? They can use their 6% commission as a down payment towards purchase of the property.......... Price of a home is what someone has paid unless government can prove that there was a fraud involved. Taxes will be adjusted to purchase price if not less. Even if the property had a homestead exemption, it would have no relationship to your taxes. Call the appraisers office and confirm this for yourself. ... more
