The Running Realtor: Foreclosure Spotlight on Miami

A blend of ramblings about Real Estate & Running around New Haven County and the Connecticut Shoreline

Foreclosure Spotlight on Miami

Recently I took a trip to run the Miami Marathon and the first person I met upon arriving in Miami Beach was Janie Coffey of Papillon Real Estate.  Janie came out for a few hours and introduced us to the unique atmosphere of the Lincoln Road area where we spent quite a bit of time during our stay on South Beach

During our dinner discussion we learned that the Miami area although currently depressed offers a great opportunity for anyone with vision that is considering relocating into the area.  This year the New England Winter seems exceptionally long and the thought of a warmer climate crosses many minds.  If you are thinking of retirement or relocating to Southern Florida in the next few years it might be wise to contact Janie Coffey and accelerate your plan to pick up a home at today's discount prices.  Well established homeowners with a few more years of work might discover it makes sense to buy now with the depressed real estate prices and historically low rates instead of waiting until after they retire. 

In addition to residential home sales in the Miami area Janie Coffey is well known in the Equestrian Community so if you require a unique parcel for your horses Janie is the one to call.

Dan warmer weather does sound very appealing right about now, especially with snow in the forecast for this weekend again.

It was a pleasure meeting Janie in Miami and she took wonderful care of us. What great press she received, and I agree anyone thinking of relocating to the Miami area should give her a call.

Dan... I would love to meet Janie some day. Who else did you meet?  Meet Ines & Rick?  Any others?  Hope you had fun.  In regards to the video....  I just don't see how Obama will make this happen. You need the inverstors to take this risk and to jump in. ANy plan made by the gov't, can be forced upon the lenders...  I guess time will tell. Overall, we are in a credit crunch and you can force investors to drop their credit scores & their credit requirements... I just don't see it...

Dan, you guys are awesome, it was sooo nice meeting you all in real person!  I can't believe you were drinking Mojito's before your big run, you're the man!  I really did like hearing how real estate is doing in Connecticut and hear about what life is like in a location that changes seasons.  I miss the seasons and Conn sounds like just the place to enjoy white Christmases and crackling fires.  Between Miami and Conn you can definitely have the best of both worlds!


Can't wait to hear about your next marathon adventure!

George... Get Ready,  I'm hearing 6-12" tonight.

Sandra... You could always suprise me an pick up a vacation shack on South Beach.

Jeff... Met several people thoughout the week, Sandra posted about the first half in the Orlando area and I put up a post about the Miami Marathon.

Janie... Maybe that Mojito caused it to be my slowest marathon!  Gotta have fun though and not worry about the clock...

I think maybe you were looking at all of the sights Miami has, especially on South Beach ;-)
