Joe, Lucas needs the site name to stay to keep his search engine prominence, even though the site name is quite dated and irrelevant in 2010. In order to keep the search engine hits, may I suggest a new name of this blog:
“www.Miami Condos: Bad Investments.com”

Rentals are quick money. In this case all you would have to do is take your client to Icon sign a sheet and collect a commission check. You essentially lose your soul being a real estate agent. You start grifting everybody. Which is how we got into this mess. Until the government stops subsidizing real estate this will never end.

My first impression was the rental prices seemed pretty high…..I personally pay a tad more than any of these but I am in a pretty fantastic condo on the beach with outstanding direct ocean views. I want to live in a great place so I am willing to pay the price which is still half the price of owning (HOA, taxes, mortgage/cost of money). I wouldn’t pay those prices to live downtown…..maybe on the beach if great views, but downtown??? Remember, rents are driven by incomes since there aren’t any financing games that can be played such as pick a… Read more »

Prices are obviously way too high…..kinda like the sales prices. I’m guessing they’ll get a few suckers to sign leases at these rates, then they’ll drop them significantly…..kinda like the sales prices.

Anyway though, Jersey Shore is on now, WTF am I doing posting here…I’ve got way more important things to be doing right now!

Hey Tom you say that rents are driven by income, how are those figures calculated? Are you using some indicators or indexes?

I am wondering if that is really only part of how rents are determined. Wouldn’t real estate agents have a large factor setting the rate since their income is based commission on the rental price? (Isn’t it like a month or something?) All they simply have to do is just say that the rent price will not move and that is what we are stuck with, or am I missing something?

LookingForDeal – Yes, you are missing something LOL…..if people aren’t earning the big money they can’t pay the big rents….As such, the units will either stay empty or they lower the rent prices……

Why do people think that Tommy boy the renter is some sort of messiah about the market? Anyways I toured the Icon the other day and it is quite impressive. I would never ever buy or rent in there as I that is def. not my style but I can see how the Ed Hardy crowd would fall in love with this. I don’t think they will have much trouble renting at these prices. I have been sitting on the fence for the last 4 years and renting. Couple of months ago I decided to get off the fence and… Read more »

As always, bunch of losers – Joes, Renter Toms, Aces, etc. – with no money to buy but ultimately oh so badly wanting to own (otherwise why so much passion about real estate from a bunch of renters, trying to talk the market down?), will completely miss the bottom due to excessive belief in each other’s BS… Miami had already leveled off. Quantum’s developer inventory is gone, for example, and sales office has moved out. Rentals will soak up the remaining inventory across this city pretty quickly. Intake is pretty strong without any new supply. People with real money are… Read more »

I have a feeling the majority of people in Miami are still spending 60% of their income on housing. I don’t think people realize this is not the way they are supposed to live. It leaves no room for escorts and strip clubs.

BottomFeederNumeroUno said: “trying to talk the market down?” – Oh please, give me a break. 2010 will have record high foreclosures in our area and with Prime Jumbo delinquencies hitting nearly 10% around here talk isn’t what is bringing the market down. Strategic defaults will be increasing too. Reality has sunk in and the pain train runs through all of 2010. Toward the end of 2008 I wrote you might as well skip over 2009…I think I was right.

Its funny that some people are labeled losers because they have yet not bought in this market or choose to be (rightfully) skeptical. I’d rather be renting w/ little worries rather than to have bought in the past and be $100k+ underwater or to have purchased recently and be constantly worried that valuse will decline even more. Comments like #17 are made by idiotic realtors, unscrupulous mortgage brokers, desperate developers or simply fools that bought a unit at the wrong time and are now very bitter about it. #17 says: “Miami has already leveled off.” Sure buddy. I believe that.… Read more »

Certainly some opinion floating around out there… BottomFeeder you sure are making some accusations. But I will agree to an extent, there are a large mass of people out there that currently do not have the funds to buy, after all FL has one of the highest unemployment rate. But I don’t think your statement can be said for every person. As I can only speak for myself, I can say that I have looked how much it will cost to rent vs. buy. After calculating the associated unstable risks of owning a condo (i.e. HOA, taxes), my personal opinion… Read more »

$1690 – $2100 for a one bedroom? Good luck with that. I have nothing against the Icon, but from the get-go the prices were always at a big premium over other properties with no real justification as to why. The average Miami club promoter / VIP host / waitress / bouncer type etc doesn’t have the income to support the rents listed. and just think of the raw numbers. They made 56 units available. So there are 1600+ units left to go! 1600! While I support their business decision to try to snag a few suckers with the high rents… Read more »

I think don’t mean to challenge anybody here but I think it is important to have people like making his comments and telling us his/hers point of views. In order to understand the market you need to have a complete holistic view, not just what you feel is right or wrong, what moves should or shouldn’t be made. I think you just try and learn from what is said and be asking why he/she feels that way and try to understand it. In gaining that knowledge it only provides you greater insight to what people are doing and feeling about… Read more »

LookingForDeal The problem here is that most people talk in generalities and hyperbole. Take scriv for example. Even when typing scriv is always yelling and he doesn’t even know how to spell “Kool-aid”. It’s like watching Democrats and Republicans argue. Since their main point is to push their agenda and not look at facts, it turns into a group of people arguing about half-truths. Look at the banter here mostly childish name calling.

If I was being to subtle and too dry, so be it, it happens. If the difference between “kool” (which is not a word but a part of a brand name) and “cool” (meaning “socially adept”, “great; fine; excellent”) then fine: my bad.

“PUT THE CUP DOWN AND BACK AWAY FROM THE COOL-AID”

This to me sounds like a reference to the phrase “drink the Kool-Aid” meaning to believe something blindy. A reference to the Jonestown massacre where they all blindly believed in Jim Jones and drank Kool-Aid with cyanide in it.

How would changing it to “Cool” help to prove your point?? I could see if we were talking about somthing that was cool and it was some type of word play.

You thought it was spelled “Cool-Aid”, no biggie.

Gixxer 1000: “You thought it was spelled “Cool-Aid”, no biggie.” No, not really. But….I am calling it here and now….10 points for the Gixxer! You correctly picked up on the reference! Use of the word “Cool” in lieu of “kool” was intended to covey the idea that not only the blind belief in the person they followed (the developer), but also the mistaken belief that the drink itself somehow made what they were selling and saying “cool.” (Remeber the crack about the “south beach wanna-be party flunkies”?) The hyphen between “cool” and “aid” means that “cool” modifies “aid”: meaning that… Read more »

computer consultant “foreclsoures highest since april” What is the significance of this? From the article YOU posted about forclosures: “Banks repossessed more than 92,000 homes, up 19 percent from November. That increase was likely due to lenders working to clear their books at the end of the year, RealtyTrac said.” Its a little misleading to say “foreclosures highest since April” when the overall trend is that they have been falling since March, the YoY trend from last December is down and the spike in December appears to be Banks working to clear their books.

Gixxer, you are a chump and come across as an extremely annoying individual on this blog. You speak as if you are some sort of all-knowing financial wizard and for some reason enjoy citing previous comments from others and applying your asinine analysis. Since you seem so concerned over homonyms and other grammatical matters, how about some of your previous comments from the past few weeks in which you consistently referred to condos as “Condos”? Why the capitalization, Gixxer? “Condos” is not a proper noun nor does it have any other characteristics that would necessitate capitalization. So please refrain from… Read more »

“i’ve sat in enough negotiations over the past year with commercial RE appraisers that all have the same prognosis…except for m.cannon” Interestingly enough these are the same RE appraisers that were valuing property 40% higher two years ago than what it is selling for today. They overshoot on the way up…..and on the way down. We can all make educated guess, but last time I checked no one can predict the future. Could the market be stagnant for years to come..possibly.

gixxer (1) they’re not the same folks (except for cannon) (2) perhaps one could suggest they’re pessimism is a tad overboard, but, i’d lean more on that view than the opposite view of expect growth (at a historical level?) within the next three years. sorry, just not happening. a significant amount of the condo market has not been absorbed. instead, it’s just been moved over temporarily into rental stock. the end question still remains – who the hell buys this stuff and at what price? no one knows. that type of unpredictability breeds caution in making a buy decision.
