From the connoisseur to unconditional art lover and even the less initiated, each year Art Basel throws open its gates to one and all to come and experience the finest of art from across the globe. The tents are up and scene is set to treat everybody to 2014’s winter art extravaganza with a collection from the biggest names to the wonders-in-waiting.

This year, devour all the art you can handle with a one-day ticket for $45 or permanent pass to the convention center for $100. Also, if you’re a student, senior or part of a group of 10 or more, you can get your one-day ticket at just $30. And, since organizers want to engage young minds at the earliest, they’re offering free admission to children under 16 when accompanied by an adult.

While there’s no arguing that all the action’s going to be focused at the Miami Beach Convention Center, but fact remains that there’s going to be loads of satellite fairs and events across Midtown, Wynwood and Miami Beach that are definitely worth a visit.

As usual, Scope, NADA and Art Miami are the satellite fairs to watch out for. This year, while Pulse is shifting base from its Ice Palace Studios residence to a tent in Mid-Beach (next-door to Eden Roc), the Select Art Fair is also moving out of the Catalina Hotel to spread its wings in the more spacious North Shore Park in North Beach. The fairs that will be deeply missed this year are Arts Kuala Lumpur, Brazil Art Fair and Miami’s original satellite fair – the Fountain Art Fair.

Real Estate News The Most Luxurious Condo Buildings in Bal Harbour
Bal Harbour condos have always been known to be some of the finest in town. But, what’s so special about these premium addresses that makes them so pricey? We’ve listed the Top 5 Most Luxurious Condo Buildings in Bal Harbour and the outstanding amenities they have that sets them a class apart. Below are the top condos ranked from least to most expensive. Why Choose Bal Harbour? Bal Harbour has always been one of the most coveted oceanside addresses in Miami. Just like the Shops at Bal Harbour are known for showcasing only high-end brands, the neighborhood too is known for housing only the world’s finest residences. Privacy and exclusivity are a given with a Bal Harbour address.

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.

Real Estate News The Most Luxurious Condo Buildings in Surfside

To reveal more about that deluxe side, we’ve ranked the Top 5 Luxurious Condo Buildings in Surfside along with their average sales price and list of amenities. Read to find out which Surfside address made it to the list… Why Choose Surfside? This family-oriented beach town comes perfectly positioned between the glamorous Bal Harbour and world-famous Miami Beach.

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...
