    I looked at apartments when they were building it there back in the day. Did they ever get the thumbprint scan access thing working?

    the facilties are some of the best on south beach. all the better building are that and more i descovered when lookin to buy. this was actually one of the cheaper ones. others were as high as 1400 a month. n ppl wonder why u r chasing 1000 a month in rent when ur hoa's n taxes come to more than 2k a month + any interest and maintenence. got to luv the wankas on craigslist lol

    This again proves my point that buying just makes no sense when you can rent, and the difference in expenditure between all the "extras" (HOA, Taxes, Insurance and maintenance) and your mortgage payment comes out to about the same as rent would be on another place.

    Yes and no. Net growth in a good area. No chance of nasty landlords. Ur own personal touch allowed at ur own place. Other reasons aswell. Short term maybe. Long term no. I did the sums n with a room mate in way better off. Buying a 1 bedder wud make it hard to balance

    But then you have a roommate. Whereas you could rent a 1/1 and be better off. And if we've all learned something the last few years it's that real estate prices do not necessarily go up "eventually."

    But we can agree to disagree.

    Bob! I think I may have a roommate for you ... my friend Pam's son. He may not be your "exact" fit, but I can vouch for him and his family. Anyway, I'll put you guys in touch via PM.
