I am very familiar with this area as I am a native of Miami. This is a very good area as these homes, Aventura Isles are being built on the old Williams Island Golf Course. Over time as sales are going well, these homes will increase in value. You are literally five mins from shopping, major highways in the area. If you would like more information on this new development please feel free to reach out to me as I can send you other pre-construction projects all aroubd South Florida. I look forward to hearing from you. You can also register on my site and have listings emailed to you as soon as they are avaliable.

Thank you,

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!

Good Morning,
I suggest that you make direct contact by calling several agents, which I am sure will answer your question here on Trulia.
You can look at agents' profiles here on Trulia to see how engaged they are in the real estate market, but ultimatly you will need to speak to several agents so that you can get a feel for their experience and if they have your best interest in mind-- and who also can identify the different questions that will come up during your search process.

I am an experienced agent that thrives on customer service and have successfully worked with many clients that I have met here on Trulia.

Please feel free to browse my profile and call me at your convenience.

I look foward to hearing from you,
Beth Jenkins

Since I work with out of country buyers, the only extra cost I've seen has been related to filing income tax, which runs a couple of hundred. The rest of the costs are the same.

Danielle Sharp answered:
Most mortgages do not allow assumptions any longer. Anyone trying to assume a mortgage would activate the due on sale clause (this states that at the time of title transfer the full amount would be due and payable immediately).

I would be extremely hesitant to participate in anything like that. Contact a real estate attorney for advice.

Well, that depends on your personal record and credit. It takes 24 months for you to be able to qualify for a loan, but just as long as you were able to meet the other credit and financial qualifications and guidelines.

You will need to have proper credit score such as 680 above, proper trade lines, down payment of 5-10% depending on your loan.

But to make sure, my suggestion is to contact a lender or broker and explain the situation. Do not let them pull your credit report! Don't lie to yourself; you know if you have increased your credit score... (By making on-time payments, not over extending)
There are several options for finance, but you need to meet with a broker or lender to get all of your options. No needs to search for a home until you have a solid credit approval.

Best of luck and if you are in need of a straight forward real estate professional, please give me a call. I will tell you facts, not sell you dreams.

Both are great sources for funding. I do believe that credit unions can offer better rates though. Since they are usually member owned, they have more flexibility where terms are concerned. ... more
