The biggest secret that's not a secret!  With it's recent success in South Beach, the SLS flag being touted as the hotel component to the newest Related Group project is sure to contribute to a fairly quick sell-out of the project.  The project will come out of the ground at 1300 South Miami Avenue in Brickell.  This is the corner of South Miami Avenue and 13th Street just east of the Infinity at Brickell Tower.

Sometimes a condo is a great buy because of the price.  Unfortunately that usually means it will require some renovations and work.  Sometimes a condo is beautifully designed and decorated.  When this is true, it's never just how a buyer would like it and so then it seems overpriced because some of the work has to be "undone".  Sometimes it just the location that makes a property a must have.  It's rare that a condo comes on the market that...Continue Reading!

Brickell Condo Blog | The Riley Smith Group

Just as I was reading a text from a client in Puerto Rico, a colleague in the office took a call from one of their clients about the same subject.  Many people want to know which buildings in Brickell allow short term rentals?  Also, whether or not financing is available in these buildings?  The answer is easy, though not what always what buyers want to hear. In the past, some buildings had “loose” policies about owners renting out their condos short...Continue Reading!
