I think you mean, $500k max? You probably aren't going to find a $50,000 beach front lot on the East coast of Florida. Especially one you can build a home/hotel on.

Good Mornig
The first step is to have an experienced loan officer who is practiced with VA loans look over your credit. Because loan offiicers work with credit everyday and have the incentive to help borrowers with their credit experienced loan offerices are your best bet. There are two articles on credit at that will serve you well. Also check the article, Consultation Interviewing Loan Officers. Also read article #9 on the MCC tax credit for first time home buyers. The best tax credit ever. So my advice is gather all the information you can than interview a loan officer to look over your credit. You will find loan officers and real estate people from your area on Trulia offering their services. A good source. Perfect timing! It will be a very long time, if ever, before there is a time as perfect as this to buy a home and the VA is a the best loan going. The VA is devoted to helping vets buy their homes and thanks for serving the nation.
Best of Luck, Stephen

Hi Karina,
None that I know of , but here is the link to FHA. The few in Dade are over the price range you suggested. I don't believe that any condos in these areas will become FHA anytime in the near or far future as most condos do not meet the requirement.

If you would like to discuss other options feel free to contact me directly.

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!

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,
