Miami Condo Market Highlighted by the Major Media
Kevin Tomlinson, of the South Beach Condo Blog, hit a home run yesterday with his post entitled “All You Ever Wanted to Know About Miami & Miami Beach Real Estate: A Video Round-up“. The “Today Show” was in sunny Florida yesterday morning to report about the Miami and Miami Beach real estate market along with Barbara Corcoran, the queen of real estate.

That would amount to buying at 25 cents on the dollar from the height of the market. There are now opportunities to buy at 50 cents on the dollar from 2005/2006 prices.
