Pre-foreclosure @ Flamingo South Beach

May 23, 2007 by Lucas Lechuga

Flamingo South Beach towers

A 1 bedroom pre-foreclosure unit at Flamingo South Beach has recently been listed in the MLS. I think this is going to be the first of many pre-foreclosures and foreclosures that we’ll be seeing at Flamingo South Beach in the next 12 months. In my opinion, Flamingo South Beach will turn out to be a solid investment in the long-term, but with 1,688 total units in the three towers that comprise Flaming South Beach and current real estate market conditions, it is going to take a long while for the demand to catch up with the supply.

The Flamingo South Beach is the largest condo-conversion ever to occur in the United States. MCZ Development Corp has completed the conversion of the south tower, which total 562 units, and has recently begun the sale of the 614 units in the north tower. MCZ Development Corp will likely begin the sale of the remaining 512 units in the center tower early next year, if they choose to exercise their option to purchase that tower.

Unfortunately, the recently listed 1 bedroom pre-foreclosure at Flaming South Beach is grossly overpriced. At a list price of $369,000, and an average price per square foot of over $500, it isn’t even close to being the best priced resale in the south tower. With minimal views from the third floor facing the open courtyard, I think we’ll see this unit move once the owner becomes truly motivated to avoid foreclosure.

Prediction…a list price of under $300K will get it sold.  View all South Beach condos.

The video below will show you a typical 2 bedroom at Flamingo South Beach to give you an idea of how the interior of the units look. This is NOT the pre-foreclosure unit. The unit in the video is much larger and has fantastic views of Biscayne Bay, Star Island and the Miami skyline from a much higher floor.

One of best amenities at Flamingo South Beach is the 15,000 square foot, state-of-the-art fitness center. It has recently become the newest addition to the David Barton Gym chain and has been renamed accordingly. The video below will show you the fitness before the transition was made from being called the Flamingo Athletic Club to David Barton Gym.

how can I get out of my north tower contract, the contracts states that the closing will take place on or about october 2, 2007. It is now november 5, 2007. Can I use this as a vantage point. I am sure that there are many individuals that are having seconds thoughts about this particular investment.
Please respond.

What is this unit going for? What is the square footage? and do you have any other units that are right on the beach in foreclosure from 250-350k?

Our fee for our services are negotiated up front, with a percentage being paid in the beginning and the balance being paid once you acquire the property. If there’s an interest, contact me via email with your price, your time frame, and the area with… Read more »
