Many Miami Beach condos like to bill themselves as the city’s top luxury resort but many fail to match the grandeur of the Fontainebleau II condo.  Still one of the most successful and popular hotel condos, this expansive Hilton operated resort offers more things to do than you can possibly think of and arguably comes closest to matching the appeal and ambiance of an island resort getaway.

The Fontainebleau II Miami Beach throws in a smorgasbord of features and amenities that you may have trouble deciding on just what to do.  You’ll find over seventeen acres of recreation with things like tennis courts, a water playground with swimming pools and water sports activities, it’s absolutely huge.  If that’s not enough the Fontainebleau II also has nightclub and lounge called the Club Tropigala as well as a shopping mall and over 1000 feet of beachfront.

The suites and residences of the Fontainebleau II are just as regal with all of their deluxe furnishings, granite kitchen countertops, sprawling balconies and gorgeous color schemes. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself spending more of your time around the premises than actually inside your Fontainebleau II condo home.

With all of the Miami Beach condos available, the city’s skyline is a showcase of unique designs.  The rooftops of buildings like the Waverly make for a refreshing change of pace from the standard rectangular shape but even that building pales in comparison to the Blue and Green Diamond condos, two residential buildings located near the waterfront with a name that makes a lot of sense.

How exactly did the Blue and Green Diamond earn their name?  Well, if you’ve ever visited Miami Beach during the evening hours, you may have noticed a blue and green beacon illuminated against Biscayne Bay which as you might have guessed comes from the rooftop stricture of these two Miami Beach condos.  Design aside however, these buildings offer a great experience indoors as well thanks to their more than 400 feet of beachfront, oceanfront pools, tennis courts, billiards and much more.

You’ll be able to choose from eight amazing floor plans at the Blue and Green Diamond condos.  If unique design and opulent living quarters are a priority, these two Miami Beach condos should be at the very top of your list.

It’s been said and proven that foreign buyers are integral towards bringing the Miami Beach real estate market back to normalcy yet they’re having just as difficult a time if they don’t have the actual cash on hand to purchase. Considering that some buyers are accounting for nearly sixty percent of sales, this does create a slight problem.
 
We all know that the weak dollar and reduced prices for Miami Beach real estate have been contributing factors towards the increased presence of foreign buyers (particularly those from Latin America) now that prices are within reach for a broader buying audience. In fact, some realtors are actually taking the initiative and traveling to other countries in order to educate and present all of the buying opportunities in South Florida, Miami Beach being one of many desirable areas carrying premium price tags.
 
In some situations it’s now more affordable to purchase an apartment in a city like Miami than it would be to own in one’s native country. Considering that the price for Miami Beach condos and general Miami real estate remains in the $200,000 range, more realtors may be more willing to go out of their way towards finding buying solutions for these foreigners that are helping to return the market to its former glory.

The neighborhoods of Miami Beach are among the most eclectic and diverse, most of which are within neighborhoods that have gated security and are surrounded by waterfront.  For the ultimate in Miami Beach homes, Fisher Island is definitely the place to look but if you need something with a more reasonable price tag, make sure to check out opulent Indian Creek.

In terms of its size, Indian Creek is considerably large, spanning over 200 acres.  Despite this, there are only forty Miami Beach homes within the community, ensuring that each residence has tons of square footage and sprawling yards.  Most of the Indian Creek homes also have their own boat docks as well as swimming pools, all on lots that are gorgeously landscaped.

Besides having some of the luxurious Miami Beach homes, Indian Creek is also among the top ten of highest income neighborhoods in the country.  It is also the home of the Indian Creek Golf Course which for many residents functions as a backyard of sorts.  If you want stunning Miami Beach homes in a waterfront neighborhood favored by celebrities with lots of recreation and 24 hour security, look no further than Indian Creek.

Miami Beach’s status as a highly acclaimed waterfront resort doesn’t really come as too much a surprise for many. After all it’s maintained this status for practically a century, earning such lofty names as America’s Riviera for example.
 
To the outsider Miami Beach is largely comprised of the actual city of Miami Beach and the ultra popular neighborhood of South Beach. Together these two places have consistently made Miami Beach real estate a top choice among the well to do, particularly its appeal as a second home.
 
Miami Beach is much more than just South Beach however. Although collectively it’s made up almost entirely of Miami Beach condos, there is also the neighborhood of South of Fifth. Commonly referred to as SoFi, this area is now one of the priciest places to call home in Miami Beach, surpassing South Beach. Just head over to the southernmost tip of the barrier island to see what are considered some of the newest and most impressive Miami Beach condos like Apogee or the soaring Portofino Tower for example.
 

The great appeal of these three neighborhoods is their flexibility. If you want to live as affluently as possible, choose South of Fifth or South Beach real estate. At the same time, you can still live in Miami Beach for a smaller price just by exploring more towards the northern areas of the city where prices are a little more reasonable.

Homeowners trying to sell Miami Beach real estate know that flexibility is an essential aspect of finding a buyer and achieving a successful sale. But what happens when that flexibility is a little too low? How do you approach an offer that’s well below your asking price? These “lowball” offers could actually work to your benefit in the long run if you handle them properly.
 
Instead of scoffing when a potential buyer approaches you with a price for your Miami Beach condos that seems absurd, take a moment to evaluate it. If it’s too low then move on but if it seems like you could use it your advantage in terms of selling quicker, strongly consider making a counteroffer. A classic game of bartering with a buyer could result in a mutually agreeable price tag that you’ll be happy with and that’s a little higher than the original lowball offer initially presented. You can probably get an even higher price if you were to throw in extra perks like complimentary furniture for example.
 
Always remember to know what the existing Miami Beach real estate property values are, you obviously don’t want to settle on a price that isn’t competitive. Also make sure to show enthusiasm, it will give buyers the sense that you’re genuinely trying to help them as much as you’re trying to help yourself and it also opens the door for better negotiations.
