It is the best kind of mortgage available, since it requires no down payment (up to a certain limit), no mortgage insurance, has low interest rates, low closing costs and is easier to qualify for than any other loan out there.

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.

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.
