The Miami Beach Real Estate market keeps changing, it's a totally different landscape and it's important for all parties to understand the intricacies and difficulties we run into on a regular basis.
There are a lot of unqualified real estate buyers out there (meaning, they don't have loans approved, don't have down payments or worse yet, they are pre-approved for amounts much less than the properties they are looking at).
If you are a Miami Beach Real Estate Buyer, do not get offended if a listing agent drills you with questions before showing you a property - sellers don't want to waste their time getting their house ready if you can't really afford it. Sellers are no longer jumping at the opportunity to show their house to every person that knocks on their door. So here are some basic tips to keep in mind if you are buying real estate today:
If seeing properties with different agents because you are interviewing and want to know how they work - say so to avoid uncomfortable situations
Don't assume all sellers are desperate
