"Half of my Brazilian and French friends are buying condos in Miami. There goes the neighborhood...."
Last time I went to Miami things had changed Miami beach was no longer latin..... anyway , Brazilian and French could only make a better contribution to the actual mix of things (maybe they would vote to raise taxes and not drown in det and become a banana republic). They both have bad things as does anyone from anywhere... To conclude , some hoods are already F up , but i would love to live in Miami , probably more than Texas . If i could i would buy in the North west part of Florida , best beaches more quiet , and cheaper ,better " hoods" ,way cheap compared to your house or mine Musk . ... in the 'oil spill scare area' .. but i'm French and they do not want me there or my money to settle my #$%$ there , they prefer Mexican backpackers. I swear to you if my girlfreind does not get a visa i will never step foot there again...
" If I can sell here in Brazil (a big if), " Dusk , i am not a finance pro , you have noticed , i'm actually pretty bad. BUT , im better at " housing " . I have seen the pics(great place) , and the price.. Here is just a humble opinion . You should be able to sell it quickly at a slighlty lower price. 20% lower. Sounds bad but ... You should double or more depending on how much the dollar falls, in Florida . If you pic well even better. In l0 years !! You will NOT double up "again" in Brazil.
Would you sell a stock at a 20% loss to choose one that doubles up? Not to mention you're not really selling at a loss. You just think you are . ' your land is worth what the new owner pays for it ' that's my quote.
So the price , a few better pics.. a few more publishings and VOILA your derriere is in Texas :) , but i like Florida !
