BUYING LUXURY HOMES

For over a century, South Florida’s spectacular Atlantic Ocean coastline, white sand beaches, and lush landscape have attracted people seeking the luxury of a tropical lifestyle in the United States. Long chosen as an ideal location for vacation homes, in recent decades, South Florida has become equally preferred as a location for primary residences as well.

From the legendary elegance of Palm Beach and Boca Raton, to the modern glamour of Miami Beach and South Beach, to the relaxed atmosphere of Fort Lauderdale, the area offers myriad lifestyles to suit a wide array of tastes.

Downtown Miami’s dynamic Design District and Art Basel Miami have transformed the city into an internationally renowned arts scene, while cultural destinations including the New World Center symphony hall and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts are among the finest in the country. Trend-setting nightclubs, prestigious private country clubs and marinas, and an ever-growing array of fine dining and shopping destinations combine to create a vibrant, year-round social agenda that is truly unparalleled. From a brand-new Trump condo and a historic Newport estate to a golf course community in the South, there’s a plethora of choices in high-end homes. Consider these tips from luxury home market pros before buying your dream home.

1. Learn the search process.
“Many luxury homes go unlisted to protect a seller's privacy. These properties are often found through the Realtor's personal connections as opposed to the MLS.” “You may need to go to more online sources as not everything is on the large search engines.”

2. Go beyond the photos.
“Make sure you don’t dismiss properties based on their front elevation photos. Many large homes aren’t photogenic that way and you have to see them in person to appreciate. I recommend my clients do a search of the property and vicinity on Google Earth so you can see what’s around the home.”

3. Work with a local expert.
“It’s critical to have a good buyer agent who is familiar with the area you want to buy in. There’s a bit more control on access to high-end properties in terms of fewer open houses and more appointments have to be made to see them.”

4. Bank on your relationships.
“I strongly recommend you go to the bank you have a relationship with. They have your portfolio already. Also, know the difference between the pre-approval letter and the prequalification letter.”

5. Document everything.
“There is more scrutiny today in the high-end market. Financial documentation is critical. Anyone who is making a lot of money has a manager or an accountant and tries hard to shelter their money so it can be difficult to show the bank you have the income.”

6. Hire smart, reliable advisers.
“A good Realtor won’t make the client’s decisions but will make suggestions. Pay attention to your financial planner and Realtor that you trust. They should agree on what you should be doing and if they don’t, arrange a meeting.”

7. Don't forget about title insurance.
“You need to get title insurance so you’ll be insured against any problems that were forgotten about. You want to make sure you have a chance to have a look at the exceptions page of the title insurance process before closing time.”

8. Look into the future.
“Make sure you know what building is planned around you. What happens if someone pushes the bar and builds another building even taller?” “Know the timeline. You don’t want to tie your cash up for a long period of time if there are any kinds of construction delays.”

9. Know what to expect with cooperatives and condominiums.
“For co-ops and condos you want to be represented by an attorney who will research the building on its financial viability.”

10. There's room to negotiate.
“It’s individual points, the view or remodeling that makes these properties one of a kind and makes them able to command a particular price. Have your agent research the comparable properties that have recently sold, getting closing prices, right before you make an offer.”
