How To Buy A Home in 24 Hours

June 19th, 2013

The Real Deal has recently announced that now, more than ever, there is a huge shortage of inventory for Miami real estate. As a result, homeowners are partaking in flash sale purchases without performing the due diligence commonly found in the buying process.

Other factors that are prompting the surge in flash sales, according to Sun Sentinel are bargain hunters that purchase in bulk to flip and resell at higher markups. In addition, there’s a large percentage of cash buyers in South Florida as the Miami Herald reports. In recent years however, Miami developers have anticipated demands for housing and have several new Miami condo proposals in the works. See Miami preconstruction here.

Sydney Server Real Estate would like to offer quick tidbits on how to purchase just-listed Miami properties within 24 hours.

  1. Check Your Credit Score – the first action that a potential homeowner should take is to ensure that a good credit score is in order.
  2. Secure a Down Payment – after saving up a substantial down payment and furnishing proof of a steady income, this shows lenders that you’re clearly ready for a loan.
  3. Approach Lenders – and determine how much you’re approved for. This can help narrow results on the MLS.
  4. Seek An Expert REALTOR – your Miami REALTOR will be able to tell you when a property has just been listed, as well as sell soon to be ready preconstruction properties to viable buyers.
  5. Set up Text Alerts – by subscribing to Sydney Server Real Estate or ask your REALTOR to contact you as soon as a property hits the market.

Homebuyers can also perform due diligence ahead of time, by viewing the Market Snapshot in Miami districts.

Downtown Miami Is A Booming Global District

May 29th, 2013

Downtown Miami’s master plan is a blueprint of what’s to come over the next 15 years, ending in 2025. The aim of the overall plan is to transform the region as an urban and epicenter in the American region, according to the Downtown Development Authority. In addition, it’s aimed at investors who are seeking opportunities in public and private sectors.

This Master Plan, which can be viewed here, has already been approved, where residents, stakeholders, rigorous studies and workshops by the Miami DDA all played a role in the end product.

Colossal Convention Center and Hotel Coming

The plan was approved in 2009, and some of its elements have already come to fruition. This includes the breaking news of the planned Downtown Miami Convention Center, which will reportedly be topped by a 1,800 room Marriot Hotel, according to Miami Herald. The project will be developed by longstanding players in Miami real estate development, the MDD Group. This new epicenter will be built along the old arena site, which would explain the rising costs of empty lots in this region. See more land availability in Miami here.

Miami DDA’s Master Plan’s Primary Goals:

• Maximize aesthetics and attraction of waterfront living in Miami
• Build community resources in Downtown Miami
• Improve on public transit systems
• Improve Downtown Miami’s stance in global and business affairs

Where’s Downtown Miami Exactly?

According to the plan, Downtown Miami is bordered at the south end of SE 15TH Road and travels upward to NE 22ND Street.
