Opinions and Advice Want to Live in a Penthouse? Here’s What You Need to Know
Penthouses are the pinnacle of condo living. Living in a penthouse means waking up to sweeping views and expansive living spaces that feel like a home in the sky. Add on luxury amenities and, well, now you’re getting the picture. While it might sound cliche and too good to be true, this is the reality of owning a penthouse. But what really is penthouse apartment or condo? And are they worth it? Read on for answers to all of these questions about penthouses. So what IS a penthouse? Penthouses are, historically, a separate build on the very top of an apartment block or hotel, fitted with the best interiors, and both indoor and outdoor space. The term came about in the 1920s when developers started transforming previously undesirable and often dirty “attic” space into incredible and spacious  properties on the top of their developments.

Opinions and Advice Anatomy of HOA Fees: Are Miami Condo Fees actually High?
Condo living is often considered more convenient compared to single family houses. Someone else does almost all of your maintenance -- be it the yard, the roof, the pool, you name it. Plus, there’s typically always some kind of security/surveillance. Amenities like swimming pools, gyms and front desks staff are a standard. And, if you buy into a luxury condo, you can get access to full-service spas, wine cellars, golf simulators, lounges, or even art galleries are all part of what you can call home. And while some think there’s a price for these conveniences and little luxuries, the overall cost is about the same as living in a home. The only difference is when living in a condo, you pay one monthly fee for all this, and it’s called your HOA fees or condo fees. Especially in a city like Miami, condos pack in the entire gamut of resort-style amenities fit for a year-round staycation. Not to mention, there’s usually a team of starchitects and internationally renowned designers behind...

Real Estate News Love Miami Vice? Mid Century Modern? Miami’s Most Luxurious Vintage and Retro Condo Buildings are Calling
While many of Miami’s bold, new constructions are unequivocally gorgeous, the city has a long-standing reputation for charming and delightful architecture, earned by the many fabulous design visions from our colorful, subtropical past. In fact, there are still many Miamians and design aficionados among us who, in fact, prefer the classic and timeless appeal of living in a historic or vintage edifice over the temptation of the super luxe and brand-spanking-new buildings sprouting up.  Older buildings also come with time-tested, solid construction, combined with the aesthetic charm of architectural design, complete with materials and finishes, from a bygone age. Another bonus of some of Miami’s art deco, mid century modern and retro condo buildings is they often have larger floor plans.  For those interested in learning more about Miami’s top vintage condo buildings, read on… Art Deco: A Miami Beach Legacy (1930’s - 1940’s) The Carlyle Condo Hotel - Miami Beach, FL - Photo...
