For some Miami Beach is a wonderful place to live, beaches, party, restaurants, but others think it'is too noisy, too many tourists, etc. I always suggest to rent for a year or less to see how is it and
then make your own judgement.

Hurricanes are part of the life of South Florida every year and the city and its population are always prepared. The hurricaine watch system is very good and accurate and insurers offer many options against natural disasters.

Eric,

Miami Beach is a great neighborhood to live in! There is plethora of options when it comes to fine dining, shopping, and nightlife regardless of where exactly in Miami Beach you reside. However, I think the area that might best meet what you are looking for is the area known as "So-Fi" (South of Fifth). It is located at the southern most tip of Miami Beach. The development of this area has BOOMED over the last 20 years with the construction of many luxurious highrises. It is also just a short 5 minute drive into Downtown Miami over MaCarthur Causeway. For further information and a map of So-FI follow this link to my blog:http://miamirealestatenewsblog.com/sofi-neighborhood-on-miami-beach/

Considering you have a budget of $1,200,000 - $1,500,000, there will be numerous options in which I can present to you that I believe you will find rather appealing. If for whatever reason you don't find South of Fifth to your liking, there are still many other areas that I can present to you in Miami Beach that I'm sure will satisfy all your needs and meet all your criteria. My expertise lies within the market areas of Miami Beach and Coral Gables so I will definitely be able to assist you. Feel free to vist my website http://www.luisiglesias.net to learn a little more about my company and myself.

Please feel free to contact me on my direct line below or via my email. I hope to hear from you soon Eric. Have a great weekend!

Hi Jose
There are very few condos that accepted pet of that size and even if the building accepts them the landlord may not, if it is a rental you are looking for. A few buildings off the beach allow them.

Definatly find a local realtor to specifially look for your requirements.

Miami beach is lovely to live as most homes are located on the water. Coral Gables has homes that are avaliable overlooking Biscayne Bay, and this area is also very family oreiented. You can check out my website and register and setup a alerts to email you avaliable homes within both areas. Both areas have great restaurants, parks, stores, and just a overall great quality of life. If you have a family I suggest Coral Gables, which has great schools. Miami Beach you can find that as well so if I were you I would look at homes in both areas and look at the surroundings so you can judge for yourself what is right for you. etc. traffic.. Look forward to hearing from you.

Maggie Hawk answered:
Jose,
You can usually verify if there is a lien filed against a property by checking in the public records for that county. However, the online filings could lag by a couple of weeks, and therefore aren't totally up-to-date. Also, errors are sometimes found in the county records.

The MLS isn't always correct either--After all, we're all human, and humans have been known to make mistakes! That's why you usually see something like this at the bottom of the Multiple Listings pages:

"Thought to be reliable but is not guaranteed to be accurate; you are advised to verify facts that are important to you."

Or, the agent could be mistaken. Is it really worth getting into a legal dispute with him? So what do you do to find out if the property has a lien on it?

Well, there IS a good reason for doing a title search and examination, and obtaining title insurance. And this situation is certainly an example of why title insurance is important.

One word of caution though--If the Buyer is purchasing a foreclosure, the lender's title work will only cover the lender's period of ownership. This might be only a few months, or even a few weeks.

In this case, the Buyer would do well to protect his/her interests by paying for a more extensive search, one that covers the previous owner's period of ownership.

Danielle Sharp answered:
Where would you file a complaint and what would you say is the violation? It's possible the seller is allowing cash only and this agent did not update the listing remarks/criteria.

Annette Lawrence answered:
Is the listing agent a Realtor(r)?

Does listing agent have a pre-established agreement with the seller to kick low-ballers to the curb and stop wasting everyone's time?

Seller and agents need protection against paper hangers. Auto curb kickers are one of those. I prefer the agreement to respond to offers 7 days after receipt. The message you should take to your buyer is 'This one's not THAT desperate!" Isn't that what you are trolling for, desperation?

Is it ethical to allow your buyer to present an offer that hasn't a snowballs chance in Florida of success? At what point are you, the buyer's agent, required to say to your buyer, "This isn't going to work?" instead of deferring that education, time, effort and resources to the seller and their agent.

I would suspect that should you file a complaint the listing agent would be able to produce the aforementioned curb-kicker agreement. Make an fair offer. It's surprising how well that works.

Not necessarily. Depends on what the seller said. If the seller directed him to not accept anything lower than X dollars then he doesn't have to present them.
