Zilbert’s List of Miami’s 100 Newest Properties For Sale

Filed under: Luxury Condos, Our Condo Listings

 

 

 

Suddenly, Miami real estate is buzzing again, after a somewhat slower summer.  And, our clients couldn’t be happier.  Our buyers are finding condos and homes to buy, and our sellers are closing on sales (and with big smiles on their faces).  So, I thought it only appropriate to gather my list of Miami’s 100 newest property listings, and share them with you below.  Of course, there are many more properties found on www.Zilbert.com (over 10,000 properties listed as of today), and the Zilbert agents are here to work with you 7 days a week.  Let us help you today.  We are eager to please!

Also, keep an eye out for the YELLOW highlights below.  These are Zilbert properties, and each one is exceptional.  You will always find a Zilbert property to be the very best.

How to Make Your Living Room Flow

Filed under: Market Updates

shutterstock_130204946

One of the first decisions you make in your new house is where to place your furniture. In the living areas, furniture placement can make or break your home’s “flow” or ease of movement. A sofa placed just two feet one way or the other, a side table too far out of reach or a rug that catches in the doorway can make a magazine worthy design a frustrating living experience.

Know your limitations

Beautiful magazine designs inspire us to try to work the same magic in our own space. Sometimes, however, achieving that beautiful look results in awkward movement and less than ideal daily use. Remember that the camera angle hides parts of that lovely layout meaning that it might not work the way you want in your space.

Note your room’s dimensions, and the location and orientation of windows, doors and doorways, fireplaces and other immovable architectural details. Draw a rough sketch of your room’s layout. Using a scale of one inch to one foot, or for larger rooms a half-inch to one foot makes your layout simpler. If you use metric measures then use a scale in multiples of 10 for simplicity.

Now, imagine the most efficient ways to enter and leave the room, reach switches, outlets and windows, or view the fireplace. Shade in a pathway to those places with at least 24 inches of walk space. If you end up with too much shaded area, you’ll have to decide which pathways are most important.

Take measurements of your furniture. Be sure to use the longest and widest parts. Create cutouts for them that you can move around on your sketch to find possible locations. Make note of all the options that might work. This simple activity saves on back pain and stressing out those friends that offered to help you move.

If sketching isn’t your forté, try this living room layout infographic for help.

Note these considerations

As you try various arrangements, ask yourself these questions:

  • Can I see the television from the most comfortable seating?
  • Does the height of this piece block the windows or switches?
  • Can I reach a side table or coffee table from each seat?
  • Do my lamps and other lights offer correct light to each space?
  • Can I enter and leave the room without having to move more than 90 degrees around furniture?
  • Is my seating too near/far from the fireplace/air conditioning/radiator?

Try it on for size

Choose the layout that appears to satisfy the most possibilities for keeping your room flowing in a natural way. Move your larger pieces of furniture into place and try sitting in them, walking around them and moving in and out of the room and surrounding areas. Adjust these pieces until you’re satisfied before moving in all of the smaller pieces. If you have to change or replace an item to make it fit your new space, you want it to be the smaller or lesser expensive pieces.

We can help

If you have specific furnishings that need to fit in your new home, let us know ahead of time. We’ll show you homes that will fit your furnishings.

Miami Housing Market Continues to Remain Strong

Filed under: Real Estate News

shutterstock_121748014

According to the Miami Association of Realtors, the Miami residential real estate market continued to experience strong demand in the second quarter of 2014. As a result, the market has also continued to see an increase in its prices, with the median sales price increasing 8.9 percent to $245,000. Meanwhile, the median sales price for a condominium in Miami-Dade Country rose 5.6% to $190,000. This represents the 10th consecutive quarter during which both single-family homes and condos experienced a price increase in the area.

When compared to last year, the average sales price for a single-family home in the Miami-Dade market increased by 3.5 percent to $460,018. Condominiums also increased by 6.7 percent to $375,941. During this time, sales of single-family homes priced between $200,000 and $400,000 increased by 68 percent, making it the price range that is in the most demand. Sales for condominiums priced between $100,000 and $400,000 increased by 35 percent.

With demand from both domestic and overseas buyers the Miami-Dade housing market remains tight. In addition, financing for condos remains difficult to obtain, making it more difficult for these properties to find a buyer. This could be part of the reason why the number of homes and condos sold during the second quarter of 2014 fell by 0.9 percent to 8,139 when compared to the same quarter in 2013. While single-family home sales increased by 4.9 percent, condo sales decreased by 5.2 percent.

The number of listings for homes and condominiums also increased during the second quarter of 2014. When compared to a year ago, listings for single-family homes increased by 4 percent to 8,635. Condominium listings increased by 3.8 percent to 6,255. Currently, there is approximately 5.5 months of inventory for single-family homes within the market, while inventory for condominiums is at 7.8 months. This represents a 13.5 percent increase for single-family homes and a 33.6 percent increase for condominiums when compared to last year.

The state of Florida as a whole has also seen an increase in its housing prices. For the second quarter of 2014, the median sales price of a single-family home increased by 5.3 percent to $180,000 when compared to the same time last year. Condominiums increased by 10.1 percent to $142,000.

Getting a Mortgage for Self-Employed

Filed under: Real Estate Tips

shutterstock_108133064

Prior to the new banking regulations, getting a home mortgage if you owned a business, worked freelance, on contract or were otherwise self-employed was possible, if complicated, using stated income, bank statements and other alternatives to W2 income statements. New regulations on so-called stated income loans, however, make getting that mortgage a bit trickier for self-employed, Schedule C taxpayers.

For typical W2 employees, the requirement for proving income for both conventional home loans and FHA loans is a copy of two year’s tax returns. Lenders take the net adjusted gross income for the two years and average it, or if the most current year is lower than the preceding year, they use that number.

Since many self-employed folk take exemptions for home offices, vehicle use and other legitimate business expenses that reduce their tax load, their adjusted gross income typically is somewhat lower than their usable income. Different lenders in this new banking era require different documents and proof of income in order to verify usable income for mortgage purposes.

Here are some ways you can improve how lenders see you

  • Find a mortgage professional experienced in self-employed mortgage qualifications. An experienced and knowledgeable loan officer can show you how to increase the amount of your income that qualifies by adding back depreciation on vehicles, properties or equipment, depletion, business use of home and salaries or owner draws that the business paid to you.
  • Know how to qualify for an FHA loan (see below).
  • Some alternative loan programs still accept bank statements and proof of deposited amounts to verify income instead of tax returns. These programs work well for buyers that have cash-based businesses, haven’t yet filed their last year’s tax returns or that have minimized their tax liabilities. Alternative loan programs are note available at market rates, however, so what you save in taxes may go to higher interest rates.
  • Make sure your credit score is above 700 and your current credit usage is low. So, if you’re using credit in order to increase your credit score, make sure you are paying the cards on time and that the available credit remains high compared to usage.
  • Prepare a comprehensive profit and loss statement year-to-date for your business. Providing a third-party validation — outside bookkeeper or accountant—of your income or that the use of business funds for your home down payment will not affect the business’s future viability minimizes the potential concerns a lender might have about your down payment sources.
  • Be prepared to pay a higher down payment. If a lender knows you’ve been able to save up a higher down payment based on your current expenses, they’ll look more favorably at your ability to make your mortgage payments.

You can qualify for an FHA loan

According to FHA.com, the self-employed can qualify for an FHA home loan. They advise self-employed applicants to plan ahead (about a year in advance) in order to make sure they can meet the qualifications. Showing reliable income over two years, keeping accurate records of income, expenses, taxes, issues requiring credit repair or dealing with disputes on credit reports takes time. If you do these things, however, you’re more likely to qualify for an FHA loan.

So, is it easy? No. Is it impossible? No. Can it be done? Yes! You just need to be able to prove that you’re a good risk.

When looking for a home, be sure to advise us if you are self-employed. We can help you get started on the pre-qualification and pre-approval process so that you are far down the road when we find the home of your dreams.

Downsize to Upgrade

Filed under: Market Updates

shutterstock_211811653

Whatever your reason for wanting a smaller home—empty nest, tired of cleaning, less mobile, closer to grandkids, moving from the suburbs to be nearer to work, single again—downsizing does not mean downgrading. In fact, when moving into less space, make it an upgrade at the same time.

Compact is the new supersized

If you’re moving from an older large home, you may have a big kitchen, but is it truly workable for you? Does the storage space work for that modern blender-mixer-food processer you’d love to own? Can you reach your workspace and the sink in one smooth motion? A smaller kitchen, designed around the way you use it, may feel enormous to you.

Just browse the Ikea showroom or the latest design images at Houzz to see what designers have come up with to make the most of smaller spaces. Functionality is the key!

Enlarge usable space

Is your larger home divided up by hallways, staircases, closets, nooks and crannies? Your new space might utilize an open floor plan with rooms connecting off the main room. Houses with open layouts and combined spaces make your home seem more expansive.

Divide your kitchen area from your living area with a counter-height eating space. It opens up both rooms making them warm and inviting.

Create multi-tasking rooms

All of that formerly unusable square footage now adds extra spaciousness and versatility for entertaining when added to your main living areas. Adjoining living and kitchen areas makes interaction with your guests while cooking a snap. Turn into a superhero that can be in two places at once: bake cookies in the kitchen and watch the grandkids play games in the living room at the same time.

Other multi-use ideas:

  • For those occasional overnight guests, consider making the living area double as the guest room.
  • Create a cozy office in the corner of the kitchen or bedroom.
  • Combine a convenient stacking laundry area with your walk-in closet or bath.
  • Utilize outdoor patio space with French doors off the living room or kitchen

Go tall for illusion

High ceilings give the illusion of space. Vaulted ceilings in a smaller single-story home make it seem sweeping, light and airy. Taller walls allow room for your art collection all in one place, while upscale floor-to-ceiling glass tiles in the bath area evoke a spa-like atmosphere.

Make sure storage utilizes the full height in your space. Remove false soffits and install cabinets that reach the ceiling. Consider putting glass doors in the upper areas to display artwork and remove precious keepsakes from busy little fingers.

Shop for amenities

Community access to pools, clubhouses, golf courses and playgrounds expands the usefulness of smaller homes. If you’re downsizing to avoid yard work or exterior maintenance, consider a condominium community or patio home. When seeking easier access to shopping, socializing, public transportation and other services make sure your real estate professional knows what’s important to you.

Make less more

So, when looking for that new smaller space, let us help you find an affordable home you can customize into the smaller space of your dreams.

Pesky, But Potentially Costly Home Maintenance

Filed under: Home Tips

shutterstock_159889154

If you’re new to home ownership, you may not be familiar with all of the responsibilities that are now yours. All of those things you used to call the super or management office for now fall in your lap.

Here are some items to keep in mind, especially if you got a “great deal” on your home because it needed a little TLC.

Little Drips and Leaks

Plumbing maintenance can by far cause some of the most costly problems if you ignore those little, niggling drips, clogs or strange sounds in the pipes. Leaks and drips under the sink are out of sight, so they often are out of mind. However, a buildup of moisture in a sink cabinet can set the stage for costly mold problems.

If the leak is on an upper level and the moisture seeps into the walls and subfloor, it endangers the structural integrity of the ceiling below. Latex paint has the particular ability to “stretch” and hold moisture. When this happens, you may not notice the damage to the ceiling below until the paint forms a moisture-filled bubble. By this point, drywall, insulation and subfloor will need extensive and expensive repairs.

Better to get the leak looked at right away by a certified plumber.

Roofing

To an untrained eye, a roof may appear perfectly fine, but hail, heavy rain, ice, snow or wind can cause damage to your roof. When left unrepaired, a damaged roof exposes your home to the elements, inviting potential damage. Here are some signed you need an expert roofer to inspect your home:

  • Missing shingles: During heavy downpours, strong windstorms or as snow and ice melts and slides off your room, tearing shingles away. While roofing tiles are designed to overlap, offering double protection, when one layer is missing, water can seep underneath and cause damage. Having a few shingles replaced is much less expensive than have to completely replace the deck (the layer of wood under your roof) of your home and completely re-roof it.
  • Curling or lifting shingles: A curled shingle or a row of lifted or buckled shingles indicates that you may already have a leak, or the potential for one. Have these shingles replaced immediately and inspect the deck and sub-roof materials for damage.
  • Decay and mold: When mold, moss or lichen grows on your roof it’s a sign that areas of the roof are holding water. Treat the growths with a killing agent immediately. Have damaged shingles repaired as soon as possible.
  • Damaged flashing and drip edge: Flashing refers to the metal or vinyl pieces that surround chimneys, pipes, exhaust fans, while a drip edge is the metal piece along the outer edge of the roof. If any of the metal or vinyl pieces are bent, buckled, dented or have holes, your home may be exposed to water damage. A certified roofer can repair flashing and drip edges.
  • Gutters are the metal or vinyl troughs that collect water runoff and direct it to downspouts away from the home. Gutters require extra maintenance. In the fall, leaves and debris collect in gutters potentially damning them and causing water to back up under the roofing tiles. Make sure to clean gutters each year before winter weather begins.
    In the winter, your gutters may fill with ice and snow forming an ice dam. The best way to avoid ice dams is to have sufficient insulation in your attic to avoid overheating your roof, and sufficient ventilation that accumulated heat can escape. Yes, it is too much heat coming from the inside of the house that causes a rapid snowmelt and pushes snow and ice into your gutters.
  • Extra precautions: If you live in an area with lots of snow and ice, consider having ice and water barriers or shields added to the “valleys” of your roof. A valley is where two differently angled roofing lines meet and where water, ice and snow can pile up.

Electrical Problems

If you have a breaker that continually trips or (in older homes) a fuse that blows, you may have an electrical problem. Of course, you may simply have too many items running on one breaker, but blown fuses and continually tripping breakers may indicate a fire hazard.

Have your home inspected by a certified electrician. If you own an older home, with fuses, consider having them replaced with modern breakers. Replace outlets in bath areas with a GFI (ground fault interrupter) outlet that switches off when the outlet is overloaded or when the appliance comes in contact with water.

We want your home ownership to be the best possible experience. We suggest getting an inspection before purchasing your home, and a yearly or bi-annual maintenance inspection to keep your home in top shape. When the time comes to sell this home and move to another one, you won’t have costly repairs needed before you can put it on the market.

Where are the Most Stressful Places to Live in America?

Filed under: Misc

shutterstock_147888404

CNN.Money recently released its list of the ten most stressed-out cities in the country. Interestingly, many of the cities to make the list are also among the most popular among real estate buyers. In all likelihood this is because these cities may have some stressful attributes to them, but they also have much to offer to those who want to enjoy beautiful weather, great amenities or the other special and spectacular features that are found in these cities. Here’s a quick rundown of the cities that made the list of the most stressful places to live in the United States.

New York

New York made the list due to its long commutes, long work hours and the high cost of living. Not only is real estate expensive in New York, but so is pretty much anything else that you might want to do in the city. Yet, New York is also regarded for having one of the best public transportation systems in the country. The city also has a seemingly endless supply of things to do, as well as one of the lowest property crime rates in the country.

Detroit

Detroit has high crime rates and a high unemployment rate. For those who are employed, however, the city offers shorter work hours and a shorter commute. Detroit also has some very affordable housing options available for those who want to live in the downtown area.

Los Angeles

While Los Angeles is known for its heavy traffic and high cost of living, its residents also enjoy shorter work hours. Los Angeles residents also tend to live a healthier lifestyle and the city sees very few cloudy days throughout the year.

Riverside/San Bernardino

Just as with residents of L.A., residents of the Riverside/San Bernardino area enjoy shorter worker hours. On the other hand, unemployment is high and commutes are long, with roughly 20 percent of residents traveling to either Los Angeles or Orange County for their jobs.

Houston

Houston has plenty of employment opportunities as well as a low cost of living, but its residents tend to work long hours and to have lengthy commutes. In fact, Houston residents have the longest work hours of all of the cities analyzed.

Chicago

Chicago residents face bad weather, particularly during the winter months, coupled with heavy traffic and a relatively high unemployment rate. Chicago residents also tend to live an unhealthy lifestyle, with 20 percent of its residents reporting that they are in fair or poor health. On the other hand, the Windy City does have a low property crime rate and is also home to an extensive public transportation system. The city also offers a variety of parks and recreational opportunities, with plans currently underway to ensure all residents live within 10 minutes of a park.

Miami

On the downside, Miami residents deal with heavy traffic and a high poverty rate. On the other hand, the city offers plenty of sunshine, beautiful beaches and a thriving art scene.

New Orleans

New Orleans faces high crime rates, with the city’s murder rate consistently being higher than the national average. Residents also tend to live unhealthy lifestyles. On the other hand, the city offers a low cost of living as well as plenty of employment opportunities.

Atlanta

Atlanta’s residents are stressed out over long commutes and heavy traffic. At the same time, they enjoy a low cost of living and a healthier lifestyle.

Memphis

Memphis is plagued by high crime rates and unhealthy lifestyles. In addition, around 20 percent of its residents live below the poverty line. Residents do, however, enjoy shorter commutes, and steps are being put into place to fight crime and poverty in the area.
