Cuando dices "buena area", a que te refieres? Me encantaria ayudarte pero necesito saber donde estas buscando o que areas de Miami consideras tu buenas. Otra cosa, tiene que ser un apartamento?

Buy any condo in an inner city. Most high-rise developments are actually pretty environmentally friendly without any adjustment - there are simply efficiencies that happen when large numbers of people live together. Then, continue the trend by trying to eat more fruits and vegetables, using less AC, and taking public transportation or walking when possible. ... more

The only negatives I could think of would be the great weather, awesome beaches, beautiful people, nice cars and appreciating property values!

With interest rates for qualified borrowers in the 2% range and prices going up, anyone thinking about buying in FL needs to get off the fence and jump on a property now!

Hi SJ.

You're partially right and partially wrong, here's why: Condo sales and all sales in Sobe are up because the area is SMALL and so in-demand. But you have NONE of the monkey business going on with mortgages now like you did in the past 10 years. No 'stated income' loans, 'no income' loans etc. No cleaning ladies buying 6 units to flip for spec, etc. Much of the money coming into the RE market everywhere today is cash. Cash is still king and it makes for a healthy RE market.

We are at the bottom of the first inning for RE in all of Miami Beach. There will be lots of building this decade, but as long as the Fed keeps the banks in line and buyers MUST come with substantial amounts of ca$h to buy, we'll be okay.

It sounds scary and could become very, very scary if banks loosen their rules of lending. This would be a disaster.

Hi Alloune,

You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Bill Thayer answered:
This seems to be a common issue here in California as well. The issue here is with a lazy Real Estate agent. Our local MLS now requires a minimum of one photo or the agent can be fined! It is our responsibility to represent our clients to the best of our ability and posting one photo or worse no photo is a complete shame! When you see a posting with no photo, please be sure to look at the listing agent name and never do business with them! ... more

Hi, I've been living in South Beach for 7 years and I never had a problem or felt insecure. Every city has some sort of crime the difference is that South Beach is very small that is why it could be more noticeable when something happens. I only know crimes can happen more if you are late out at night drinking or during certain holidays like Memorial Day Weekend.

Your Realtor should be able to answer this far batter than anyone here could. There are a lot of variables and your lender creates most of them. The lender or your Realtor are the ones to ask for these numbers and it will be based on the property, the loan, closing date, insurance cost, price of the property, taxes, etc. ... more

There is a list of items that Realtors may not comment on, including,
Race, Religion, Ethnicity and Crime.
If we comment, positively or negatively, we can be guilty of "Steering".
We won't do that. ... more

This listing does not mention a specific unit number. None of the current listings have 3 bedrooms, as mentioned in the property referenced above.

There are currently 5 two bedroom/two bath units for sale in this building. Prices range from $379,900 to $649,000.

If you would like me to send you all the information for the two bedroom units, please contact me directly. I'll be happy to help.

Good Morning,

The fees are quoted at $808 per month. This would have to be verified with the condo association.

I see that there are also 4 other units for sale in this building.

If you'd like to schedule an appointment to see one or all of these beautiful condos please contact me directly and I will be happy to help.

Beth Jenkins answered:
Hi Alma,
Thanks for your question. I will have to say that the variables are too large to give a price, and can only give a range unless we could narrow things down.
Anywhere for 150.000 to the sky is the limit is how varied it can be. To be on the beach itself, you will need to allow 500.000, but to be near the beach or on the intercoastal you could be within the high 200.00 and into the 300.00 range.
The variables are size, building age, location on or near water, upgrades, etc.

The best thing to do is do a search on a website such as my companies site below, or contact me directly and tell me your criteria and I will send you a customized search. It really is up to your budget and we can custommize the search around that. There is definalty something fo every budget in the Miami Beach area.

I look foward to assisting you.

Hi Paul,

With that price it is pretty hard to find something that is decent on Miami Beach under 100k. I can search the MLS for available and active properties for you as I deal with a lot of investors who search for investment property here in South Florida. I have a background in working with short sales and foeclosures. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you,
