Clearwater Beach Pier 60 Invaded by Dolphins before Republican National Convention

Clearwater Beach Pier 60 Prepares for the Republican National Convention

Clearwater Beach Florida – If you are coming to the 2012 Republican National Convention or just will be in the area the next two weeks there’s one more thing to add to your list of fun and free things to do – visit the Clearwater Dolphin Exhibit at  Clearwater Beach Pier 60.  Jack and I went last weekend to beat the crowds and bring back some photos and video for you.patrioticdolphin Clearwater Beach Pier 60 Invaded by Dolphins before Republican National Convention

Clearwater Dolphins on Exhibit at Pier 60

The Clearwater Beach Chamber and local businesses worked together to sponsor and create an amazing exhibit of art – 50 bottle note Dolphins line the sidewalk at Pier 60 – you will be greeted by these festive dolphins each with a personality all its own. I shot a quick video to give you a sneak peek at them however I would strongly encourage you to go see them for yourself – they will only be on exhibit at Pier 60 until Sept 4th.

South Beach Condos - Sand Key Florida – Each of the South Beach condo communities  have their own Condo Association and community manager even though some do share ammenities. For example South Beach I and South Beach II share a pool, guard house, security and common area however while they used to be one association – recently they separated. Each of the South Beach condos have undergone major renovations in the last 12 months with updated common areas and updated looks bringing these condos built in the late 70′s and early 80s – don’t let that worry you though – these well built condos have been well maintained and are ideal for full time residents or as second homes. With their stringent 90 day rental policy they are not a community we would recommend for investors or those looking to buy a vacation rental condo

South Beach Condos I & II on Sand Key FL - both are  9 story condominium complex on Sand Key directly on the Gulf of Mexico. South Beach Condo I was the first of four built in 1973 by the US Steel Corporation.  You will love the fact that these two units sit on a large piece of property with tropical tiki huts to enjoy your Gulf of Mexico sunsets. It’s close to everything in Clearwater Beach and within walking distance of the Shoppes of Sand Key and the Jolly Trolley is also available. South Beach condos 1& 2 also share a tropical pool and guest parking area as you enter through the manned gate house. One of the benefits of these condos is that in most units you can see the beach and the bay with their north – south orientation.  There are a limited number of direct gulf front units and these always sell at a premium.  These South beach condos continue to be in our “best buy on Sand Key” category based on our buyer’s feedback.

South Beach Condos III & IV on Sand Key FL – if you went back before the real estate boom in 2004-2007 these condos would always be everyone’s first choices since they were up to almost 10 years newer than South Beach I & II however during the boom many of these condominiums were purchased and completely renovated – most commonly the boxy original kitchen was opened up and many with custom cabinets, granite and more. Also if you go back 5 years the common areas of the building looked like 1970′s 1980s vintage – however, not to worry – all four communities have invested big in modernizing their buildings and common areas – today you wouldn’t guess their age as you walk into updated decor and facilities.  South Beach IV is the only community with facilities to grill so if that’s important to you it’s definitely something you’ll want to keep in mind.

These South Beach Condo communities have limited under building parking which cost extra originally and is still a premium today. All residents get one designated parking spot however some are covered in the parking lot vs under building. You will appreciate the extra storage unit in the garage for things like your beach chairs, umbrellas, etc.  Another big plus is the face that all units have inside utilities – most are sold with the washer and dryer as well. While these condos were built as early as 1973 many have been updated to boast of open kitchens with granite counter tops and tiled floors most commonly. Those that have not been update are typically selling for @$50,000 less.

Facts: Selling Your South Beach Condo 30% over Market Value

Selling your South Beach Condos | Sand Key – Clearwater Beach FL

Clearwater Beach Florida -  Do you decided to sell your Clearwater Beach condo this year?  Well today I’m going talk specifically to those that want to sell their South Beach condo on Sand Key. We are in a dynamic real estate market and you need that facts and if no one’s giving them to you – we always will!

The good news is:

So it must be a Seller’s Market on Sand Key now right?

And if you want to sell your South Beach condo now you can dance the happy dance and start jacking up your asking price, Right?

IMG 8559 300x225 Facts: Selling Your South Beach Condo 30% over Market Value

Well let me share some of our analysis regarding what’s really happening today with the standard 2 bedroom 2 bath  units – specifically the 1341 and 1404 sq ft models (not direct gulf front ones) I also want to share my recent experience selling a South Beach condo which may is a wake up call for some Clearwater Beach condo buyers and sellers – since some are asking 30% over what’s sold this year. Then get insulted when someone offers 70-80% of their asking price.

We had a buyer here in February who could close in 30 days or less here to purchase one of these a South Beach condos - they were open to any of these similar condos in the South Beach condo buildings  I, II, III or IV – especially since they have seen the major renovations all the South Beach condominiums have done in recent years. They were strong buyers, pre-approved and wanted to make a wise investment but they were in no way the “low ball offer” people we’ve all seen in the past few years. As someone who wants to sell their South Beach condominium – sounds great, right?

What’s Selling? South Beach Condos on Sand Key Clearwater Beach Florida

Well let’s look at the facts – for the last 2 years only 1 to 1.5  South beach condominiums a month are getting sold. This is sounding better and better for the buyer since you’d think this wouldn’t be difficult at all. We saw every unit that was updated and met their criteria (which was about 10 condos) and here’s what we experienced – we had one seller’s agent actually tell us “We dont care if it appraises for that price – that’s why my buyer prefer’s cash” – ok, HELLO!!!  When was the last time you met someone with almost $400,000 in cash that would just overpay because they could – this isn’t 2006 folks!!!  We work with savvy buyers and whoever we’re working with we make sure they have all the facts to make informed decisions based on what’s happening today. We also encourage our  buyers make a list of their top 5 South Beach condos they be interested in buying (normally we’d shoot for 3 but you’ll see why 5 was necessary). Now again, you think it would be easy right – NOT!

Ok so let’s start with the facts…here’s what those that are serious about selling their South Beach Condo this year are missing out on…We are in the end of our “winter season” now and there are still  24 units for sale in the South Beach condominiums and when we look at the last 2 years where typically ONLY one South Beach condominium a month is selling it will take 2 years or more to sell all the condos for sale at this rate:

South Beach Condos that Sold Lower were Short Sales or Bank Owned

Another Myth is South Beach condos that SOLD for a low price are distressed, however, this year none of the sales were short sales or Bank Owned / REOs. It appears they were motivated South Beach seller’s who really wanted to sell (of course some had been on the market 9+ months too). If you want to sell your South Beach condo this year,  you can’t just ignore these numbers. None of these units were in bad shape or  ”original” condition (aka 70′s & 80′s vintage). All varied in their upgrades and views but the cold hard truth is they did sell this year for $296,000, $312,500 and $355,000 respectively and ranged from 92-95% of the price sellers asked for at the time of the sale. The problem is, the ones we liked that were for sale were priced at $399,000 – $425,000 which is 25-30% more than what others have sold for.  So ask yourself – Are you really serious about selling? Our winter season aka “prime Clearwater Beach condo buying season” has one month to go because Easter is early this year  - if you’re trying to sell your condo you have to ask yourself…

How we prepare for Christmas in Clearwater Beach Florida

Clearwater Beach Florida – This past weekend was the annual Island Estates Yacht Club Holiday Boat Parade. This parade is held along the Clearwater Beach intercoastal waterways and starts at the Island Estates Yacht Club and weaves it’s way up and down the waterfront Island Estates homes and condos then also past Coachman Park. The parade is always held a week or two before Christmas and is a memorial to members of the Island Estates Yacht Club that died in the last year.
