Hello Tess,

The best walking area is the private boardwalk at Treasures on the Bay right on Biscayne Bay. Magnificent setting and it's reserved for Treasures residents.

As I live right here, I can speak from personal experience.

I suggest that you hire an attorney. Not only will he be able to speak with them, but also assure that you are buying a property with no title problems. I would not rely on the title company the Seller's Bank is using. Too many horror stories. ... more

Hi, I live right across the street. I've lived here for almost 2 years. It is a nice, quiet neighborhood--save for the barking dogs occasionally some early mornings before work. If you plan on hanging around south beach, you wll need a car, or you can use the public bus that stops right on the corner. We have some pretty good restaurants in the area--just google map north bay village.
Good luck

Find a local real estate agent that has a little experience in dealing with bank owned property. There are many great deals outside of REO's, Short-Sales and Foreclosures too. The best deals are being made by ALL CASH buyers that buy - usually without even inspecting or visiting the property.

Like mentioned by a few others- if an all cash purchase is not what you have in mind- do get in contact with a bank of lender to determine the actual amount that you can buy.

Chances of prevailing in the contest are greatly improved when you have the initial down-payment and a solid pre-approval letter in hand. Being pre-qualified means very little...

How did this work out for you?
Mildew vs. mold and the other question is the source of the dampness or water. Only a licensed mold inspector can determine if it is toxic mold or not. Mildew you get from lack of ventilation, like in a bathroom without a fan. If it is an odor and not traced to a water source, bleach, paint and carpet can fix the problem. If it is an unknown black substance, i.e. mold the real trick is repairing the source of water. ... more

Make sure the HOA allows rentals. Many do not. Either you live in it or it is vacant. As an investment I would think a real house would be better. Ay least you do not have to pay hoa fees all the time and get almost nothing for them. ... more
