Miami Super Bowl Condo Rental

January 24, 2010 by Lucas Lechuga

A friend of ours has a furnished 2 bedroom/2 bath condo that he would like to lease the week of Super Bowl XLIV.  It’s an upgraded corner unit with 1,204 square feet of interior space plus a 164 square foot wraparound balcony located on the 16th floor.  The building is located in Brickell within walking distance of the shops and restaurants at Mary Brickell Village.  Starting and ending dates are flexible.  Asking price for the entire week is $2,500.

Price seems high ($357/night?) considering the lack of hotel amenities and the glut of private home/condo Super Bowl rentals on the market in South Fla right now. The only way this deal will happen is if Jets play Vikings. Otherewise the demand won’t be there. I guess desperate times call for desperate measures. Be careful in the tenant screening process. And get a big deposit. Lucas I;m sure your friends are legit but I’d be very skeptical doing this if I was coming in from out of town for the game. Plenty of scam artists are seeing $$$. I’m sure… Read more »

Lucas was promoting annual rentals last week—now down to weekly—wonder what is next. Fortune House is only weekly rental in that area I know of.

Putting this on Craigslist would have been bad enough, but for a Realtor ™ to be pushing a weekly rental that’s almost assuredly a violation of the condo rules is beyond questionable. (I assume this is why Lucas didn’t name the building.)

Illegal rental? What do the condo docs say about weekly rentals?

Of course its a violation of the condo docs but of course there’s no enforcement either so what’s the risk. The associations have much greater problems (solvency) than to crack down on this stuff.

Also, Super Bowl tourists want to stay on Fort Lauderdale Beach or South Beach. They don’t want to be on Brickell.

The largest single Real Estate deal in U.S. history is going back the creditors……”Stuyvesant Town Turned Over to Creditors” — “But their reserves, once stuffed with $890 million for capital improvements, interest payments and renovations, are now virtually depleted. … The rents collected did not cover the mortgage payments”

Perhaps Tishman Speyer Properties and BlackRock Realty thought they could get an 89% premium for water views??? They miscalculated. LOL Couldn’t resist a good joke at the expense of AJ.

Lucas,
Other bloggers are right. I know you are trying to help your friend out but this listing degrades your blog. This listing belongs on CraigsList, not here. Please resist such pressures in future from your “friends”.

Drew, et al: There is another issue here that makes this rental potentially illegal. If I recall correctly, (and note I said “IF”), leases of 6 months or less are subject to taxation under Florida and maybe even the bass-ack-wards local law. Given that the Florida’s economy is somewhere due-south of the toilet, if I owned this unit I would be wary of renting for the Superbowl because if the state finds out, it may come calling for the applicable sales tax, fees and any penalties. I would also be very wary of advertising it – – as this is… Read more »

Stuyvesant was the biggest (and worst) real estate deal ever. $5bn purchase price for 11,000 units (avg $454,500 per unit) and now est value is $1.8bn. I’ve never personally visited Peter Cooper Village/Stuyvesant Town but it looks like prison housing. Or something out of the Communist Bloc.

The Fla state pension fund lost over $250m in that deal.

Check that: it is not just a sales tax issue. There is also room tax.

Sure it’s a great deal. If you can take the glaring light from the AON building illuminating the unit at night – – it may be an idyllic place.

I also imagine that there are owners willing to do the same in the Jade or The Club – – across the street.

short term renatls good for miami
6 years 8 months ago

whats the issue with short term rent. they should be doing this all over miami to encourage tourism otherwise put of by high hotel rates or low hotel rates in crap hotels.

plus landlords win becuase they can actually achieve a yield and pay the housing associations and it encourages more investment.

as for it not being in the rules…. bla bla bla… who cares, the buildings half frigging empty anyway!

Short term rentals suck. Miami Beach residents know many mansion owners who tried daily rentals. These properties turned into weekend nightclubs.

The entire county relies on bed taxes. Hotels don’t need an uninsured, unlicensed and untaxed industry to compete with.

Uh, so the solution to “high hotel rates” is to rent a basic condo for around $400 per night with basically *no* hotel amenities?

BRILLIANT!

These short-term rentals are also hard on the building as the associations will have little recourse against the short-term tenants.

The whole notion is unhealthy, unwise and probably fattening.

Agreed.

The only way this rental makes sense is if 5-6 people cram up in this unit for Sausage Fest XLIV.

I have been reading this Blog for some time now.It is very informative …with Lot’s of knowledgeable people constantly writing in.My first question is for that guy AJ..AJ do you think if I come to Miami to look around for a Flat to buy/rent, I could pitch a tent for a few days in that park thats near you?I’m a little short of cash and would like to camo out in PACE PARK…I believe it is.If you could let me know I would appreciate it.

You can live in Pace Park. Many homeless do. City of Miami police only have a few officers in that area. You can easily hide out in the mangroves without paying any hotel taxes. I’m on my iPhone hiding out in the mangroves right now.

If you don’t pay hotel taxes Miami will never be able to finance new projects or pay back old bonds. Miami took on billions with the ball park. If you don’t go to a ball game and eat 10,000 hot dogs per game you’re not helping Miami.

You can also explore any tantalizing fantasy in Pace Park for around $20. For a more urban stimulation of sensual arousal, nearby 2nd Avenue will let your butter flow.

I try to keep it serious, but I have to admit that the majority of the past 10 posts have been pretty hilarious! On a serious note, I propose that we all get together at Pace Park for a pre-Super Bowl tailgate/keg party and (I hate to do this but I am going to) AJ – can we all use your bathroom?

Obviously the hobos should be invited too, after all, you should always invite the neighbors when you have a party…. What is an appropriate party gift to bring, since I don’t want the hobos to feel unwelcome….beer, wine, or crack? Please advise.

gixxer, look at the condo ranking page. Long before you logged on this site, Lucas had Blue ranked higher than 1800 Club!!! Blue, that flopped motel style building smack in the middle of a highway! I had to write many livid and incredulous notes before Lucas corrected his mistake. But then, Like some of our past presidents, Realtors never like to say that they have made a mistake. Getting that would be like pulling teeth. And then again, Lucas Ranks Axis Location score at 8.0 and 1800 Club at 6.5!! Has anyone been to Axis and around? Anyone who thinks… Read more »

Now, some serious information: Florida existing home, condo sales up in 2009 South Florida Business Journal After one of the worst housing downturns in recent memory, the state’s real estate market ended 2009 on a positive note. Existing home and condo sales across Florida were higher last year than they were in 2008, according to housing data released by Florida Realtors. Existing home sales rose 31 percent in 2009, with 163,148 homes sold, up from 124,168 homes sold in 2008. Existing condo sales were up 47 percent last year, to 55,985 from 38,095 a year earlier.

AJ, You bought in 1800 as a place to live. From my argument in the other thread I think that position is justified. If others wanted to buy in 1800 I would tell them that in my OPINION I think its a good move if you really want to live there. But it is plain and simply not a good investment right now. Stop throwing out random, pointless opinions like the one above unless you have any evidence to the contrary. “Your information of 73 flats owned by Developer is wrong and PROBABLY dated.” Go to miamidade.gov and look up… Read more »

Visionary – Distressed home sales made up a large chunk of the increase if not all of it. “Distressed homes accounted for 36 percent of total sales last year.” That was apparently for the nation. In our area the number is likely higher. As a stats exercise, if you have 10,000 units that sell in 2008 and then have 15,000 units sell in 2009, that is a 50% increase in sales yoy…..however, the increase makes up only 33% of sales and so the distressed sales of 36% exceeds the increased sales amount. I am sure you are aware of this….although… Read more »
