A seller typically pays around 6% of the closing cost in commissions. That's 3% for the listing agent, and 3% for the buyer's agent.

But in Miami Beach there are companies like that offer full real estate services and at a flat fee. Rather than taking commissions, only charges a nominal fee at the closing so sellers save at least 3% every time. ... more

The estimates of value featured on Trulia, Zillow and other sites pick up any property within your zip code in a two - three mile radius. Landmarks, positive features (bay front), size, age are not taken into consideration. Personally, I have to argue these inappropriate values with potential clients all the time. Facts about the real value of your home can only be concluded by a professional. I certainly hope an interested buyer in a water front property in North Bay Village is not relying on Trulia's value. ... more

Request a copy of the annual budget and last years actual operating expense. Further check if there are any special assessments in the current budget.
Also take a look at the current reserves. They might be too low and the association is trying to increase them. ... more

If you are facing foreclosure a deed in lieu option to avoid foreclosure. Some lenders offer a deed in lieu with a lease hold back (deed for Lease). Meaning you surrender your home but now begin to rent it from the lender. This will allow you to stay in your home and avoid foreclosure.

These deals are typically a one time only options. You might want to contact an attorney to read over the agreement being offered to you so you can clearly understand what you are signing.

Good Luck.

Each community is different - plus rules do change.
Makes sense to verify and keep looking...

The attitude in Miami Beach is "no party houses" - because currently there are some...

and the local residents want their peace and quiet.

Hello Thomas,

Sorry about the job loss.

There are several options:
1) Sell this condo
2) Rent it out - if it is allowed by your condo association - read the condo documents and rules and regulations, to see if renting is allowed and for how long.
Some condo associations don't allow rentals at all. Others - you have to wait a year or two of ownership. Some say it's only yearly lease, while others allow 6 months.
3) If to tell the lender: Once you stop paying, they will be calling you. You can tell them that you lost a job and are looking for a job. Then, you don't have to accept their calls until you are able to pay again.
You have to read your Note (the document you signed when you bought your condo). In it, it could say that once you rent the place out the rate could go up 0.5%. So, in real world most people don't tell...this is what we see, which does not make it right.
4) Taxes - if you have a homestead, you can loose it once you move out from this condo, by telling the tax authorities that you are renting your place out. In real worlds, if the change is temporary, homeowners do not inform the tax authorities. Again, this does not make it right.

Hope this was helpful and best of luck!
