Tags:   The Courts at South Beach, South Beach condos, miami beach condos

South of Fifth is the crowned jewel of Miami Beach, boasting quiet streets, access to the beach only steps from any building and a large array of first class restaurants like RED, Smith and Wollensky, Tuscan Steak, Devito’s new Restaurant, Prime one twelve, China Grill and the classic Joe’s Stone Crab. 

This area has many incredible condos like Continuum, Icon, Murano Grande and Portofino, the brand new Apogee and many more. In the center of this ultra urban area however, you’ll find a city block of eleven small buildings only four stories high called The Courts at South Beach.
 
This complex with 190 units is more than just a collection of appealing vacation condos; The Courts at South Beach are truly homes. With large units offering 3 and 4 bedrooms and units up to 2800 sq ft you may wish to make this complex your permanent residence.
 
This is not some kind of condo, resort or hotel, The Courts has one of the highest percentages of year round residents than any other building in South Beach. Most of its residents at The Courts choose to live there permanently, making the building very desirable for families with small children, pet lovers and South Beach aficionados.
 
Even so, The Courts is not like many South Beach condos that sometimes tend to lack common areas and amenities. Two pools, Jacuzzi, gym, party room, a racquetball court, state of the art security system and 24 hour guards are just some of the features available at The Courts.
 
Most units come with two parking spaces and separate storage spaces. The Courts is a charming complex with so many attributes that the only way to properly experience it is to visit this great building.

Tags:   Mei Miami Beach, Mei Miami Beach Condo, miami beach condos

Mei Miami Beach is probably the best new building to appear in Miami in recent times. This building exudes luxury with its unique Asian aesthetic and the minimal yet luxurious atmosphere is a refreshing blend very much needed in this area.

The developer offers four distinct choices for every buyer:

Decorator ready:
This is the typical way all units are delivered which consists of a finished kitchen and bathroom. You'll need to add flooring, window treatments, and your own paint and design touches. This unit is essentially a completely "empty canvas" for you and your decorator to bring to life.

Move-in Ready:
This is a great choice for buyers. These units are professionally decorated by Mei Miami Beach's in house interior designer and the combinations are truly admirable. All units come standard with custom flooring, wall covering, and window treatments designed to be environmentally friendly.

Fully Furnished Luxury Residences:
All you need is your toothbrush in these turn-key units. Fully furnished luxury residences come standard with custom flooring, wall coverings, paint, window treatments and custom designed furniture. Sliding panel dividers and fully accessorized collection of linens, dinnerware and decorative items are also part of this packaged deal.

Fully Furnished Jaya Limited Collection:
These are limited collection units created by world-renowned designer Jaya Ibrahim. All units come fully furnished with custom furniture, exotic wood custom doors, fully accessorized collection linens, dinnerware and decorative items.

Take a tour through and explore the unique Mei Miami Beach condo.

Several efforts have been made recently to try and encourage people to not only spend during a time when buyer confidence has decreased but to also assist homeowners in managing their property taxes.  One of these as you’ve probably read about and has been covered thoroughly in news reports is the intended income tax rebate that’s on the brink of being passed.  The others you might be aware of are the recent passing of Amendment 1 and the Fed interest rate cuts.

Selling a Miami Beach home in the current real estate market climate is tough, that’s already been well established.  Let’s instead focus on the homeowners who may have been entertaining the thought of selling but were hesitant for fear of being slapped with a substantially higher property tax.  Amendment 1 actually reduces annual taxes and ensures that should a homeowner move to a new place, they won’t suddenly find themselves paying higher taxes.

Consider senior citizens who have children that have since moved out and found their own place.  These people may have wanted to downsize to something not quite as large but have resisted due to incurring higher taxes.  The home they choose will more than likely cost less and what’s more, they’ll be paying the same amount as if they had never moved.

Anyone with a home equity line of credit will also see their rates lowered significantly, a great relief to anyone that may be struggling with making monthly payments and trying to avoid foreclosure.  The tax rebate can also be used towards such payments or put away for some other big life investment like buying a new car, accruing money for a Miami Beach condo down payment or keeping around for any unforeseen emergency situations.

Tax cuts and rebates, interest rate reductions, they all go a major way towards restoring faith in the Miami Beach real estate market as well as throughout the country.  This year may finally be the one where things slowly begin to point a much better 2009 market climate.
