The Very Fancy SLS LUX Brickell

July 7th, 2014 Written By Carol Pawley



The sales center for the SLS LUX Brickell condominium is now open. The project will offer-among many other impressive features- sophisticated designer interiors, original works of art by contemporary masters, private rooftop pool terraces, celebrity chef restaurants, and limousine service to a chic private beach club. Services designed to indulge the most discriminating clientele.

Even before the pre-construction sales center opened its doors, the SLS LUX had reservations from buyers to purchase $200 million in units — half the project’s total sales according to Related, which is jointly developing the prime site with real estate baron W. Allen Morris, who owns the land.

Today’s high-end condo developments are far fancier, moving Miami into an elite circle of global cities where the super-rich come to play or perhaps to do business. As developers compete to offer the best of the best, Miami has turned into a workshop for internationally famous architects like Richard Meier, Zaha Hadid and Bjarke Ingels, and prominent interior designers and landscape architects. Exotic building materials, cutting-edge appliances, and smart-house features are de rigueur.


Boutique Hotel Projects Draw Investors to Miami Beach

June 23rd, 2014 Written By Carol Pawley


It’s a known fact that Miami has become the place to “see and be seen” in popular culture. This attitude is becoming pervasive in the hospitality industry, especially when it comes to boutique hotels.  Hotel operators and investors realize that, in order to be competitive and to bring clout to a brand, they must have a hotel in Miami Beach.  As a result, the appetite for boutique hotels in South Florida is voracious. Investors, including institutional investors, see Miami Beach as fertile ground for boutique hotel projects; Miami is among the top five hospitality markets in the nation.

Competing with All-Cash Buyers?

June 15th, 2014 Written By Carol Pawley

Trade with money and key

Market Watch offers these tips for borrowers in all-cash markets like Miami

  • Be patient: Some all-cash buyers and their offers can appear and disappear, especially if the buyer is overseas. Your financing-contingent​ offer still might have a shot, especially if you’re willing to put down a large down payment.
  • Realize that flexibility is an advantage: Sometimes a line of credit on another investment property, or a home-equity line of credit, can help make your offer look even better. It may not be all-cash, but more-cash is better than less-cash.
  • Know the market: Work with your real estate agent and loan officer to find sellers that are open to accepting bids with financing.
