Home exchanges are a great way to do inexpensive travel as well as make new world wide acquaintances.
How often would you do exchanges? It would seem the arrangement you would be looking for would be to "rent 12 times annually."

The best course of action is to request the condo docs. before making an offer. Review them and question issues of concern.

Good luck,

We would be happy to provide condo information for the Sarasota/ Venice area if needed.

If you already know the home you want, you may want to consider working with a Realtor who will give you a rebate on your buy-side commissions (essentially money back at closing).

Try to find an agent who'll do this in your area.

Best of luck!

In Aventura there is Biscayne Lake Gardens where several (most) of the buildings are 55+ "Adult Communities" ~ HOPA'S

Point East may also be another HOPA just south of Aventura, proper.

Send me an e-mail via my Trulia profile and I can research this more for you.

Historically, the increase in inventory in any particular area will directly impact the market. Aventura has not been the only area in South Florida experiencing growth and construction. Prices for Aventura condos have decreased due to the amount of inventory and construction, and there has been an increase in rentals.

As for the reasonable cost - I recently wrote an article that we're beginning to see a shift in the rental market. More people are starting to rent and rental prices are beginning to increase. I suspect that the rental inventory will decrease as well and it will be the beginning of a shift from the very down market we are experiencing.

Take a look at the article when you have a chance - it's all about real estate market cycles and recognizing triggers. I would love to get your opinion on it as well.

Lori Fein answered:
FSBOs [or for sale by owner] usually want to sell by themselves so they don't have to pay the professional services of a Realtor. Buying a home is usually the highest priced item one will encounter and it is always better to use the services of a professional to avoid the threat of others who are not looking out for your best interests. A house in foreclosure means the owner can not pay the mortgage and the bank has foreclosed on it or is willing to sell as a 'short sale'. At that point the buyer deals with the bank or its designee. ... more

Lori Fein answered:
It is best to contact a mortgage broker or lender's representative who will ask you a few questions about your finances and pull your credit. With this information, they can tell you approximately how much monthly payment you can afford and then calculate those numbers to reach an asking price right for you. My website,, has a mortgage calculator that prospective buyers can input the monthly payment they want [princpal and interest] and get the corresponding price of a home. Don't forget about insurance and taxes or monthly maintenance [if it's a condo]. ... more
