This morning on the Today Show Ivanka Trump was giving her opinion of the real estate market.  One of her suggestions to Homeowners was to wait a few months before putting their house on the market for sale.  This is the kind of real estate blanket statement that just drives me crazy!  Real estate is local, in New York waiting a few months to put your property on the market might be a good idea, but certainly NOT in Pinecrest (Miami) Florida.  Here in Pinecrest we are down to 6 months of inventory, down from a high of 53 months of inventory.  WAIT – absolutely not.  Currently there are more Buyers than we have inventory to show!  Properties that are properly priced for their condition and location are selling; and selling quickly.  If you are thinking of putting your Pinecrest Florida p...

Throughout the course of business and selling Miami short sales I speak to lots of consumers about the real estate market. Whenever the topic of short sale fraud comes up, they are always surprised. Then I explain what short sale fraud is and that it's alive and well in Miami, much to the chagrin of those of us who fight constantly to change the reputation that precedes us. It's an uphill battle when scams affecting banks and unsuspecting consumers are still so prevalent. So, what exactly is short sale fraud? It takes various forms. Here are a couple of the more prevalent ones in Miami: The selling agent may line up a buyer for the property at market value, but submit a different, lower, offer to the bank for approval. Oftentimes this requires that others be involved in this as well, as...

Life happens and you might have no choice but to move from your Pinecrest home before it sells; this is not the best thing for you or your property.  You still have to continue paying your mortgage, property taxes, utilities, etc., and this can add up to some very serious expenses. You will need to worry about vandalism, storm preparation, emergencies, landscaping, mold, pool maintenance, etc.  You really don’t want to move to your new home and have all this baggage with you.  So, give yourself, when possible, enough time to get your property sold.

When I moved to Miami from New York City ten years ago, one of the many things that were new to me were the canals throughout Miami-Dade County.  New York City has no flooding problems, unlike South Florida, where the canals were added many years ago to help with the flooding problems. A very nice perk to having these canals all over Miami are the ducks they provide paddling space for. =)  I know that ducks can be a nuisance in many Miami neighborhoods which have lakes or back up to canals.  People who don't listen to conventional wisdom feed the ducks and create a problem.  Once accustomed to being fed, they will return for more. Because I don't live in such a neighborhood, I don't suffer from the duck nuisance but can enjoy them from afar.  Today was a treat.  I was driving through a ...

You can adquire a wonderful home today in Pinecrest at greatly reduced prices. Who would have imagined that that property values in Pinecrest would be so low? An important number of the transactions are either foreclosures or short sales in Pinecrest closed last year. You have real opportunity to find your new home Pinecrest at very low prices. Take advatage of the low prices and the high inventory! But don't take too long, the market is now picking up and sales are on the rise!     If you have decided that you will finance the purchase of your property, then you need to be speaking to a local mortgage professional. I strongly recommend that you work with a local person that knows that area and is active financing in the community. That is the first step. Find a bank that is active givi...
