Aventura Florida and NYC Real Estate TALK

As promised, I will comment on the Inman's real estate conference Bloggers Connect - sponsored by HomePerks.com. In addition, to learning a lot of cool tips and tricks about the blogging world, I enjoyed meeting the people behind the blogs. In a future post I'll outline some blogging and SEO advice from the pro bloggers at the conference. For now, I'd like to mention some of the bloggers I met and continue an online dialogue that was recently started by Robin Greenbaum, Associate Broker at Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate in New York City.

I met Robin Greenbaum in the Exhibit hall while I was checking out all the companies presenting their products and services to the attendees. We briefly spoke and later met up at an intensive seminar discussing the future of blogging. After the seminar we talked about the connections between Aventura Florida and New York City real estate. We thought it would be a great idea to continue this conversation via blogs and videos. So, I sent her an email with a few questions about New York real estate. Here is a video of her response, it's episode 4 of Ask a New York City Real Estate Agent.

Robin, thanks for starting an online discussion about Florida and New York City real estate. Cool website plug! You mentioned the condos at Hidden Bay in Aventura Florida. Here's a photo of that community for those of you not familiar with the area.

As you all can see this community has amazing ocean views in Aventura. It's a picture perfect location that is located in a private area next to Aventura's Founders Park.

Response to Robin Greenbaum's questions:

Why Aventura over Miami?

Simple, Aventura Florida is centrally located and an easy commute to popular destinations in both Miami Beach and Ft. Lauderdale. It's near I95 and the ocean. It's the best of both worlds. There's a real community atmosphere that is developing in Aventura, making it an ideal location to raise a family. Take a look at our blog archive and you'll see why Aventura is a great place to call home.

What's happening to Aventura real estate?

Well, as a realtor at Terrabella Realty I can comment that Aventura real estate is holding its value; however, properties are not moving as quickly as they once did. That being said, there will always be a market for luxury condos with ocean views and they do sell - even if priced high. Many of the recent sales are to forgein buyers taking advantage of the low dollar value. This is common in Aventua because a majority of owners in Aventura live in other states or countries, their real estate purchase was either an investment or for vacations. When I say other states I mean New York of course.

It's great having this discuss about New York and Florida real estate. I know that all of our Aventura readers will appreciate this topic. It's always good for our residents to meet a New York real estate agent, because they'll likely want to sell their New York real estate once they spend some time living in Aventura Florida. Thanks again.

I hope we get input from others and continue this video to blog trend.
