When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Of course! After all, they never sensationalize or create clearly biased view points. But who reads newspapers?

The unfortunate truth is, folks read and trust the resources that tell them what they want to hear. Yes, some folks thrive on bad news and sensational journalism. The more segmented and polaraized we make our sources of information, the high the vitriol goes.

Personally, I don't trust media resources for real estate advice because they invariably quote Zillow, RealtyTrac or Trulia as sources. Need more be said?

Hi Marjorie,

My advice first piece of advice is for you to check your lease. Most standard leases have a clause where a guest is allowed, but places a limit on what is termed an 'occasional overnight guest'. For example, I always fill in the lease as 'an occasional overnight guest is one who does not stay more than 14 nights'. SO, first check your lease to see that you are not in violation.

Second, if this guest has been at the building more than a couple weeks, of course, the condo association is going to see her as another tenant (just one who possibly circumvented signing the lease) even if that's not exactly the case. The board has a right to approve or disapprove of anyone residing in the building (which is why they made you pay for a background/credit check when you applied there. It makes sense that, if your guest has become a long-term guest, they view her as another resident and want to have her checked out.

You should consider if you really want a roommate and how much longer she plans to stay. If you don't know, then you might go ahead and ask her to pay a fee. If she is a considerate friend, she should not want to be the cause of problems between you and your landlord or the community where you live. If she is looking to buy a home it could be months before she finds another place.

Good luck!

The Bentley Bay is finally coming around and becoming a great asset to the neighborhood. There are some wonderful opportunities to buy there. The neighborhood is evolving and it will soon be a prime location.
Are you from the South Beach area? Are you looking to buy or sell there? I would be happy to provide you with comparable information.

Ines Hegedus-Garcia answered:
All Realtors need to be careful how this question is answered because of Fair Housing Laws. If you need to know about the crime in the area I would suggest you visit the neighborhood, talk to neighbors and check out the dade-county site (
As for actual condition of homes - you can see people are spending a lot of money remodeling and some others are not. There are many neighborhoods throughout Miami where this happens and you need to find out about local code enforcement and zoning practices if you care living next to a house where the lawn is not mowed or the house is not painted.

I guess that's the beauty about living in South Florida and Miami Beach. The diversity of unique cultures that mingle in South Beach on a daily, and nightly, basis makes it a great place to be. Whether you are 20 or older, you are welcome. We don't hold grutches and we want anybody and everybody to be part of our lively and diverse scene. So, to sum it up ... South Beach is a place for young and old, for poor and wealthy, from educated or not as much, but the importance .... it is a wonderful place to call home and to be happy living in. ... more

Miami Beach has re-invented itself over the past decade from a 'retirement' destination to a highly sought-after home for both families, single professionals, wealthy retirees, and playboys, and playgirls, from three continents: North America, South America, and Europe. The huge old 'deco' homes in 'middle' Beach are highly sought after by local families as well as famous movie and musical stars of the world's stage, with many homes being beautifully updated. Younger professionals and the 'international set' are snapping up homes and condominiums on famed 'South Beach' as soon as they hit the market. 'North Beach' has been dubbed the NEW South Beach, many 'urban pioneers' are moving in to the older homes and condominiums and updating them to today's standard. New contruction is EVERYWHERE on Miami Beach, where ever a vacant lot and local building codes allow! ... more
