Brickell Heights Has Arrived in Style!

Brickell heights started closings in June at a rapid pace, and so far I have seen and heard nothing but good things about the building and have had great experience with the staff and management there. That is a great early sign! Unlike many other buildings I have sold preconstruction in the past, all the amenities were 100% complete by the time my clients closed -- another great start for the building. There are only a couple of final permit inspections to allow for the rooftop pool to be open for use, but it looks great!

Overall I have been very impressed.

The views from the north side of the building are primarily of Brickell City Centre, which is beautiful. The south views are of Mary Brickell Village, the Brickell skyline and the water in the distance if you are high enough.

The owners facing the north side of the Brickell Heights West Tower unfortunately have pretty obstructed views because of the adjacent building, which I believe is a rental building that is currently under construction and already topped off. And the north units facing the Brickell Heights East tower will also be disappointed to hear that a 75 story tower has been approved for the lot directly north of the tower, which will eventually significantly obstruct their views which current are of Brickell City Centre.

Lucky for my clients, I suggested all of them to buy facing south or to buy a corner unit. Whew!

They blew it out of the park with the design of the theatre room. I didn't catch all the technical details of the surround sound, etc, but it looks comfy and stylish!

Children's Play Room

The childrens playroom at Brickell Heights is very spacious and well-stocked with fun things. I live at Paramount Bay, and it definitely has us beat on all levels. Of course this does service two condo towers. But either way it is well-done and beyond adequate.

Brickell Heights Pool

The pool at Brickell Heights is on the 9th floor amenity deck and is placed between the two towers. Sunbathers will likely have to track down sun on one part or another of the pool deck depending on the season and time of day. If you want to get more guaranteed sunlight, you can head up to the rooftop pool of either tower.

The pool has a graduated beach-style entrance, which I have always been fond of for a slow and measured way to get into the pool and very family friendly. :)

The gray structures on either end of the pool have a waterfall feature that was not on when we took these photos, but it is a very pretty site to see when they are on.

Why Are Luxury Condo Sales Surging in Downtown Miami as Sales Weaken in Miami Beach?
Opinions and Advice Why Are Luxury Condo Sales Surging in Downtown Miami as Sales Weaken in Miami Beach?
Move over Miami Beach, there’s a new rising star on the block. For long, Miami Beach has been the hot favorite for property seekers in Miami. Whether it’s been about purchasing a permanent residence or getting a second home, South Beach properties have always sold out like hot cakes. On the other hand, Greater Downtown (Edgewater and Brickell included) has mostly been a second-best option to South Beach and Miami Beach, possibly out of necessity, with proximity to work being the biggest motivator for local buyers. But, as we’ve been tracing luxury condo trends over the last couple of years via our quarterly market reports, we noticed a reversal. The Greater Downtown area is now emerging as the top favorite among luxury condo seekers. Here are some reasons we are seeing this new trend: Numbers Speak: Miami Beach vs. Greater Downtown Miami Over the past couple of quarters, sales trends in Greater Downtown Miami have been marching ahead, even as those in Miami Beach slowed down....
Massive Lawsuits Won by Miami Condo Associations Mean Awesome Upgrades for Condo Owners and Residents
Real Estate News Massive Lawsuits Won by Miami Condo Associations Mean Awesome Upgrades for Condo Owners and Residents
Recently, a handful of condo associations have scored massive windfalls thanks to lawsuits leveraged against insurers and developers. This is obviously great news for condo associations, and it also usually means that the associations' finances will likely be great for years to come. This in turn translates into improved living conditions for residents of those buildings, since these windfalls provide opportunities for condo associations to make major repairs and improvements that benefit residents.  Oftentimes, the amount of money they win does not actually need to be spent entirely on the issue that motivated the lawsuit (many times the repairs have already been made by the time the lawsuit is settled). This provides a great opportunity for the condo to either fill their reserves and avoid special assessments on future capital improvements and maintenance projects, or simply spend money doing awesome upgrades on various things.

Financing Options for Second Home Buyers
Opinions and Advice Financing Options for Second Home Buyers
Purchasing a second home is embedded in the hearts of many as a sign of true success: the ability to escape to your favorite destination at-will and stay at a place you can still call home and also have it as part of your investment portfolio. Not only will it allow you to save money on lodging if you use it as a vacation home, but it can also provide you a source of income if you rent it out while you’re not using it. There are three common options to choose from to finance the purchase of your second home, and for each you will need good to excellent credit.  Here is what you need to know about each second home loan option. 1. Take out a HELOC on Your Current Home If you’ve owned your primary residence for a few years, chances are you’ve earned equity on the property if its value has gone up.  If so, you can take out a home equity line of credit (HELOC).   A HELOC can help you secure the funds for a down payment or even to purchase the second home outright, depending on the...
Inventory Loans for Unsold Condos Gaining Popularity Among Miami Developers
Real Estate News Inventory Loans for Unsold Condos Gaining Popularity Among Miami Developers
Although pre- and new construction developer sales have picked up in 2019 as compared to the past couple of years, the pace is not necessarily as fast as developers would like, and not all projects are benefiting from the uptick. While many of these new condo projects are averaging 89% - 92% unit sales, those remaining unsold units are currently totaling about 2,101 as of this writing, and developers are turning to inventory loans to capitalize on condos they’ve built that still remain unsold.   Developers have a choice to either reduce their prices to speed up sales, or take out an inventory loan and take a hit on carrying costs versus diminishing the value of their inventory. In Miami, many developers are doing the latter. We can also assume that the money from an inventory loan can be used to pay off other loans or invest in other ventures.  In one recent example, Alirio Torrealba, head of Coral Gables based MG Developer recently closed on a loan from BGI Capital for unsold...
