    Buying Real Estate in Miami

    buyers

    Buying real estate might be one of the biggest investments in your life. Some buyers might already live in Miami, know its neighborhoods and where they want to live while others have never even been to Miami but have heard about Miami’s investment potential. Miami is a very diverse real estate market and there are so many different neighborhoods and real estate options to choose from in this exciting market. With so much information to your disposal many buyers get overwhelmed.

    Why Miami is the best place to live

    To answer all these questions you will need a professional. Someone who knows the market and its statistics and a professional who can make comparisons between sub-markets and is able to explain these differences.

We will make you understand why a certain investment is recommendable or why not. We are in the business to make our clients happy and we believe in long-term relationships.

    How can LUXLIFEMIAMIBLOG help you find the home or condo of your dreams?

    This site is useful for those who are still in the early stages of a home buying or investment process or for those who already know what they are looking for.

    For those who know what they are looking for

    Our site provides a search option that is directly fed from the MLS. You can look per neighborhood, per budget or at condo level for the property of your choice.

    You don’t know exactly what you are looking for or where you are looking:

    By scrolling through the neighborhood pages you will find which neighborhood fits you and your lifestyle best.

    Are you looking for a single family home near the water or near Miami’s best schools or do you prefer urban living with lots of people, high rise and entertainment around?

    By scrolling through our neighborhood pages you will find your area of choice. After selecting a Miami neighborhood, you can then research neighborhood analytics to see what the average prices and inventory levels are within that neighborhood. You can also see the different condos projects available or maybe you like to see the townhomes or gated communities within a certain neighborhood.

    For each area we select a top 10 of properties for you to consider or you can use our live MLS feed and search for your Miami home or condo yourself.

    For those who like to go more in-depth information, each neighborhood provides you with a handful of blogs for further insights into your neighborhood of choice.

    For any further questions give us a call or send us an email.

    How to select your Miami buyer’s agent

    First of all, the mere fact that you even picked a buyer’s agent already makes you a star! There are many buyers who decide to do it all on their own and they often get misled into bad investments. In Miami, using a buyer’s agent is FREE for the buyer! Yes, such a thing exists! The selling party will pay the commission to both agents and its statistically proven that you wont get a discount by not using one, so take advantage!!

    When it comes to picking the right realtor for you, use the person best equipped to help. You are putting a lot of money in their hands so you better pick wisely.

    Would you take stock advice from someone who just got an e-trader account and started trading stocks for the first time?

    Do they have access to stocks? YES! But, are they equipped to make you money? NO!

    Why? Because they don’t have enough experience and market information to read the market properly.

    The same goes for the Miami Real Estate Market.

    The 10 biggest mistakes when choosing a Miami realtor

    Real Life example After we sold a property of a client of ours, the buying agent asked “What are they going to build in front and how many stories will it be? I hope it doesn’t block my client’s views! It was only Brickell’s most talked about Brickell City Centre complex, which was announced years ago – Choose your buyer’s agent wisely!

    Does your realtor know the Urban Development plan and future projects that might block your city or water views? Do your research, and pick the realtor with a track record and market knowledge!

    Miami has about 140,000 realtors and everyone knows someone who is a realtor. Most of these agents however, have had their license for just a short period of time, lacking a great deal of experience. Many others realtors have a normal day job and a real estate license on the side, waiting for an opportunity to come up and to make some fast cash without too much effort

    The truth of the matter is that many buyers still use these inexperienced friends or family members as agents and regret it afterwards. Likewise many foreign investors come into Miami and contact just the first fellow countryman/woman they can find whether they have experience or not. Don’t do others a favor, do yourself a favor!

    Which questions to ask when selecting a potential Miami realtor

    Experience How long has the agent been in business for and how many deals has the agent closed? (you don’t want to be their guinea pig with $1M at stake!) Has the agent done multiple deals already and does he know the tricks of the trade? Has the agent dealt with likewise properties before and therefore knows what questions to ask or what pitfalls to look for? Can the agent recommend the best in business? (The best lawyers, the best property inspectors etc) Is the agent an experienced negotiator who can get that deal for you against the best possible price? Ask the agent for references of prior clients.

    Market Knowledge Does the agent know the demographics and the (socio) economics in the condo or neighborhood of your choice? Does the agent know about urban planning and future developments? Does the agent know the numbers in a certain condo or neighborhood? Can he recognize trends or ‘predict’ future market movements based on historic data and get you a complete market overview and explanation of this market overview? Does he know the average sales prices per Sq.Ft in a street or in a condo to protect you from overpaying for a property? Can your realtor easily compare prices of different neighborhoods or condos? Can your agent distinguish the different condos based on some key market data and can he explain why a certain house or a certain condo offers great value for the money? Buyer and Seller behavior psychology Does he know about Buyer and seller behavior psychology?

    The ethical aspect In the case of pre-construction condos especially, different developers offer agents different commission percentages. Make sure your agent doesn’t steer you into a certain condo just to get a better commission. Make sure your agent has your best interest in mind and not his highest commission check. It has become common for agents to push pre construction over resales because the commission they make is double!

    Relationship with other Agents For Pocket listings: Sometimes agents have pocket listings, which are not on the MLS, or upcoming listings that are not marketed yet. A well-connected agent will know of this via his network and he will be able to get you a property of which others didn’t even know it was selling. For pre-construction condos: The introduction or early phase of a new condo project is normally when the best deals can be made. A well-connected agent will receive information and prices of new projects before other agents do! Moreover, developers will prefer to work with well established agents making it easy to get appointments and preferential treatment.
