Miami, Florida- Basketball season is out and the news is in. According to Bleacher Reports article and various other news sources, major basketball star Hassan Whiteside signed a four-year maximum deal with our very own Miami Heat. His new contract will be cashing in a whopping 98 million. WOW. You heard right, 98 million! That is a total of one hundred times more than his current Heat contract. With that being said, Whiteside is expected to put that money to good use and what’s better than real estate, right? There is a plethora of pricey real estate options for him to purchase here in South Florida. Currently, he resides in a two bedroom at 900 Biscayne but will he opt for a more lavish waterfront home? Or chose to stick to the high-rise lifestyle? Heat fans, I want to hear how well you know Whiteside!

A major redevelopment could be on its way to Aventura, Florida, according to a recent article I was reading.
Evidently, Sears recently submitted a development proposal to the City of Aventura. In that proposal, Sears is recommending replacing its current store location at Aventura Mall with a little village.
This village would be comprised of retail, office and even hotel space.
Currently, Sears occupies two stories at Aventura Mall. But under the new plan, Sears would only occupy 20,000 square feet within the 250,000-square-foot village.
Developers want to call the project “Esplanade at Aventura.” If it is approved, industry analysts are already saying it would be better than the existing Piazza at Aventura Mall where Cheesecake Factory is located.
What Do You Think About Sears’ Plans?
Do you think it would be a good addition to the mall? Do you think it’s a wise business decision on the part of Sears? Would you rather see Sears stay the way it is?
I would love to hear your thoughts!
I’ll also make sure to keep you posted as these proposed plans go forward.

For the last several years, I’ve told you about how foreign investors have been flooding the US housing market, mostly attracted by our exchange rate as well as the incredible properties they can own for such a great price here.
But there’s no other city that has even touched the level of attention that Miami has received from these investors. It’s certainly remained a hot market for foreign investment.
Why Miami Is The Place to Be
What makes Miami’s market so active? For one, this world-renowned city is currently undergoing a bit of a condo construction boom, with luxury developments popping up everywhere!
And who’s behind that development? You guessed it: Investors from across Europe as well as Latin America and Asia.
In fact, according to the Miami Downtown Development Authority, 90 percent of sales were international in downtown Miami recently.
Still, it is worth noting that, according to the Miami Association of Realtors, June existing condo sales were down 3.8 percent from last year.
Who Could Blame These International Buyers, Either?
After all, Miami is an incredible place to live. Imagine living in an internationally-acclaimed city where you can revel in the cultures of dozens of nations, all on the same block! Here you can sunbathe at one of our pristine beaches or simply enjoy sweeping views of the waterfront from your high-rise condo.
What’s more, this city has a bustling local economy, which means you’ll have access to a steady jobs market.
And thanks to its location, you’re just a short distance from a number of popular and unique restaurants and boutiques. And a cruise to the Caribbean or a flight to Central America is exceptionally easy thanks to Miami’s waterfront location.
If there was ever an ideal place to call home, it would be Miami!
What This Means for You as a Local South Florida Buyer
This could result in a multiple offers situation or worse – being priced out of the condo you want to purchase outright.
That’s why it’s paramount to work with an experienced South Florida real estate expert like me if you want to enjoy a successful outcome on the local housing market.
