Real Estate is in my blood. I’ve been studying this market most of my life. I’m obsessed with it. I know it’s a little weird. Have been since I was in high school. 🤷🏻‍♀️

 

If you want to keep your pulse on this crazy rollercoaster 🎢 of a market, follow my blog.

Happy Spring!

Koko ran out of the house yesterday morning at 6 am. Martin woke me up out of a deep sleep bc he needed my help as he had to get to work. So not only did he let our monster escape, he left me to deal with finding him. 😬
I could hear him meowing under the deck but he would not come out. I had to break out the big guns so I got his favorite treat (churo) Still nothing. 🙀 I was getting concerned. He is a very timid and gentle cat despite his size (17.5 lbs). He would not have been ok outside. Ginger yes but not Kokes. Even his younger sister would fare better. Our gentle giant has no street smarts.

I had to go under the deck 😳 to get him. Anyone that know me knows I would never ever do this bc I’m a germ phobe but there was no choice. I bruised my chest and knee, this was not fun. I finally grabbed him and brought him in. He then got bathed twice bc ewwww.. and slept for 1.5 days.

Now when we open the door he takes off. Don’t think he’ll do that again. 😅

Oh yeah and my nephew slept through the entire ordeal!
I mean it was loud, lights were turned on by his window, there was cursing..a lot of cursing. 🤬Good think he’s a sound sleeper bc he’s a professional athlete and needed his rest.

Koko’s new name is F*%#ing Koko. 😾

Family fun continues with our nephew Avery. Dinner at Stiltsville on Sobe. Love this place! It’s an off-the-beaten-path, locals place. The vibe is chill, the food is excellent and the service is outstanding.
Yes, you heard me right. Outstanding service on South Beach!!!!!!! What?!?!?! 😲
and….does this place look familiar? Who remembers Purdy Lounge? 🍻That was my absolute favorite bar on Sobe in the early 2000s! Now the addresses are different but this so looks and feels like the old Purdy Lounge. 😍

Productive and fun meeting with Javier Adj Perez at his family-owned jewelry store, Gabriel Edward Jewelers in the Dupont bldg in the jewelry district in downtown.

Fine jewelry at very good pricing!
They also repair jewelry.

SOLD! 

The Maji Sold Team participated in the sale. We brought the buyer.

There were over 15 offers! We went in over ask with a post occupancy for the seller. The contract was not contingent on financing and this was one of the most complicated transactions I have had in 29 years! 

Many issues arose due to the very recent changes in the financing guidelines for older condos which affected this transaction even though it was a condo/townhouse. The property did not appraise either. We had issues with the property management company as well.  It was a mess!

I was able to dispute the appraisal successfully. This is extremely difficult to do and I have only done this 3 times in my career! 

We received a seller credit and we CLOSED!! 

This is when experience and masterful negotiation skills matter most. 

Like Majic I’ll get it closed!!

Today is clearly nephews day. Dinner tonight with our nephew Avery Drost from Cali at Uchi in Wynwood.
Meal did not disappoint. Now that is some seriously good sushi! 🍣 The flavors were so layered and precise. Omg the edimame was smoked!
Every piece of sushi was unique and distinct. Can not recommend Uchi enough. It is phenomenal! And the company was awesome too. 😊 So great to spend time with family.💗

Adventures in Little Havana with my mom and nephew Matthew Grant who’s home for spring break.

Ate at Lung Yai Thai Tapas. Cute small restaurant with good food. We got there at 12 and did not have to wait. By 12:30 it was packed and a line was forming. They don’t take reservations and if you go, be prepared to order all your food at one time.

The Chef is from Bangkok and it’s been featured in Conde Nast and in the Michelin Guide. Overall I thought it was very good with a creative menu. The curry was very tasty but the pad thai was the star.

I have to say that my fave is still Ricky Thai Bistro in North Miami. The owners are from Thailand and bring back spices when they go.

But it’s not in Little Havana which is an experience in and of itself plus where else can you get passionfruit sake?!

The new Pinecrest Bakery on Red Road in South Miami is excellent! The croquetas de bacalao were freshly made and the pastelito de queso was flaky and warm…soooo good! The cafe con leche was ok, nothing spectacular and the empanada de espinaca was meh. But those croquetas though!! Reminded me of Madrid! 🤩

Condos What questions to ask before buying or renting

This is today’s Maji’s Market Minute. Today we’re going to discuss condos and what to look for.

First and foremost, you have to ask if there is a structural inspection report or if there’s one coming. This is very important right now, in lieu of what happened with Champlain Towers in Surfside, and with all the recent changes with the insurance guidelines, lending guidelines, and building guidelines.

So this is very, very important, especially now.

How do you get this information?

Well, you need to talk to the property management company or the condo association via the condo board. You need to know what questions to ask to get the answers you need. 

I know condos. I was a past President of a South FL Condo Board. So if you have any questions or you want some representation when you’re looking to buy a condo, contact me.

Feeling pumped after the Tom Ferry Roadmap Tour. At events like this, I think of my dad. My mom and him loved Mike Ferry (Tom Ferry’s dad) as well as many of the other Real Estate legends.
We used to talk for hours after events about everything we learned and strategize. Personally, I think Tom’s take is brilliant and resonates with me which is why I’m a coaching client.
Trust me I’ve heard many over the years and have been coached by a few. Tom is the best by far.
He took a bit from all the top speakers/ coaches and put his spin on it, incorporating the latest tech and marketing. Missing my dad so much today. He would have enjoyed this.

This is Maji Pace Ramos with today’s edition of Maji’s Market Minute, on a very, very sunny day in Miami. ☀️

Today we are going to discuss what’s going on with the headlines and the market.

Basically, we have to be really careful with the teaser headlines. They are effective for getting you to open the link but how accurate are they really?

Don’t chase the headlines, just follow the stats. That’s the moral of the story.

The headlines are saying that foreclosures have doubled but what they’re not saying is from what? What’s the reference here? We had historically low foreclosure rates, so doubling is actually still low. That’s the funny thing.

The real issue is inventory. 🏡

We are at a seven-year, all-time low of inventory in January, which is historically the strongest listing month of the year, that’s the problem.

If you are thinking about selling, this would be a great time to sell. Based on most of my resources, we should be looking at more homes for sale later this year. Then of course the market could shift.

Investors expect the Fed to raise interest rates soon, and this week’s increase in the 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage reflects that.
Last week it was 6.5%.

I’m Maji Pace Ramos, and in today’s Maji’s Market Minute, we’re going to discuss
what I consider to be one of the biggest issues in our current real estate market… the insurance crisis.

I mentioned this during a presentation I gave last week that will be on my blog probably next week.
Basically the insurance crisis is a very big issue.

Two days after that presentation, Coldwell Banker, the largest real estate company in the world,
changed our addendums with changes referencing these issues.
The Florida Association of Realtors, which prepares our legal contracts, will be changing the standard contracts probably in the next month or two.

Lenders are changing their guidelines, and insurance companies are as well. This is a big issue.

What does this mean?
If you are thinking about selling, get in the game. This is a super complicated market, and I know it well.

If you need any assistance or have any questions on this topic, please reach out.

This week, I’m contesting an appraisal that came in significantly lower than the sales price.

Will the seller pay the difference?
I don’t know. There were multiple offers on this property.

Will my buyer pay the difference?
I don’t know that either because there’s also work that needs to be done, but it doesn’t really matter.

I’m still contesting it.

I think I have a solid case, and although it’s a lot more work for me to get the information on this,

(I actually have one comp that’s a really good one) I’m still doing it.

It is a lot more work for me because this information is not readily available.

I’ve had to really dig for this and I am still doing it because I look out for my clients.

UPDATE: The dresser was picked up.
Hey fb friends and family,
Free dresser but must pick up today in NE Miami.
The people that are working in our home wanted the dresser then realized it’s too heavy for them to move without a 3rd person. Unfortunately, they realized this after they took it out and it is currently sitting outside on our walkway.
We have a delicate coral rock walkway and it needs to be carried and can’t be dragged.
If you want the dresser pls let me know asap.
Its very good quality plus it looks like the Beauty and the Beast dresser. 😊

Happy New Year! 🎇

Hope you all had a peaceful and wonderful holiday season.

I’ve been very, very busy. On my way to the Christmas Eve celebration with the family, I was negotiating a seller credit for my buyer, actually, right up until I got to my cousin’s house. I was a little bit late to the party. 🙃 A couple of days later I had inspections on another property and I’m now strategizing for the negotiation on that, for the appraisal and the inspections. It’s a very busy market. This is a very good time for buyers to be on the market. It’s the best market we’ve had for buyers in the last few years.

If you are a buyer and you’re interested in buying a property, get in the game.

If you want to close, CALL ME. and hopefully…

I will have time to take down my Christmas tree and decor this weekend. 😂

I’m Maji Pace Ramos and I wanted to wish you all a HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON! 🥂❄️🥳🎊🎇🍾🎍🎉

I had two deals 🏡 go under contract 1 1/2 weeks ago and yes, we are in the middle of the holidays and the real estate market is still going. 📈🔥 It is a little unusual for this time of the year, but it’s definitely a really good time for buyers to present offers because it is a little bit slower. Having said that, both of these contracts had multiple offers.

So… why did mine get selected? I think one of my superpowers is knowing how to read people. 🦸🏻‍♀️ I’m very good at it. I’ve been doing this for a very long time and I know how to tell what sellers want and the listing agents are looking for. So if you want your offers accepted, contact me.

Happy Holidays!

Is it a good time to buy? 🏡 Boy, is that a question I get every day. 😁

Short answer, it really depends on what news you listen to and what you believe.

1. What do you think is going to happen with the mortgage rates?
2. What do you think is going to happen with inventory?

In my opinion, inventory is the real issue. But what do YOU think? Based on those two answers, that will determine whether you think it’s a good time to buy. Now, if you’re asking me as a professional, is it a good time to buy?

I would say yes, it’s a very good time to buy. Right now, interest rates came down a bit. 📈 We are in the middle of the holiday season, which means fewer buyers. 🎄🕎🎅🏻People are distracted, not as much competition. However, having said that, there’s still some competition, and all you need is one other offer to blow your game. It is still a competitive market, it’s just not as competitive. So if you’re interested in buying, please give me a call.

Like “Majic” I’ll get it closed. 🗝️

My design background came in handy today as well as my experience with over 12 renovations, advising good friends/buyers how they could attach a carport to the rest of the house and how to move laundry room from the carport to inside the home.

Also trying to determine which parts of the house were an addition so we can check permitting. All in a day’s work. It is very convenient having an Interior Design degree and experience as an Interior Designer. .

Like “Majic” I can help buyers envision potential of a home and assist sellers in staging, presenting homes in the best possible light to get the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time.

Last night, I received a text from a listing agent that my buyer’s offer was not accepted.

So, note to all buyers, don’t be fooled by all the crazy and conflicting news that’s out there.

THIS IS NOT A BUYER’S MARKET.

There are still multiple offers, and all it takes is one other offer to really create a problem for a buyer.

So just be very aggressive with your offers. Don’t dilly-dally.

Don’t wait, get them in. Present clean contracts with very few changes and terms. Lock it up and use the inspection period for your due diligence.

FHA home buyers will soon be able to purchase flood policies from private insurers, which could translate to big savings.

Great holiday party at Merrick Park! 🎄


Published by Maji Pace Ramos on December 6, 2022

So I just came back from showing property this afternoon and thank G– these are personal friends,
Cuban and also born and raised in Miami so they got it, but anybody else probably not so much. 🤷🏻‍♀️
It’s not that uncommon for Latin buyers, especially younger buyers to bring the entire family to look at a property.
But…
it’s not as common to have the entire family 🧒🏻👧🏻👶🏻👦🏻👩🏻🧑🏻👨🏻👵🏻🧓🏻👴🏻
showing a property.🤣 Yeah so we went to go look at this property 🏡,
the listing agent was there and she could not get a word in.
The adult son was showing us his bathroom 🚽 with custom lighting at the same time the father
was showing us the kitchen 👩🏻‍🍳which they had moved to the outside porch area
because they didn’t want the smells of cooking in the house
(another topic of what not to do)
This could have been a scene from “Que Pasa USA.” 🤣
Just thought it was funny!

Aqua Art Miami.


Aqua Art Miami.


Aqua Art Miami was so good!
I prefer the Art Miami off shoot exhibits in the historic hotels or containers.

This is where you find emerging artists.
Plus some of these rooms reminded me of my 1st apartment on Sobe in the 90’s.
Loved that apartment. Trip down memory lane. The 90’s were the golden age of Sobe. Soooo much FUN!!!

So what does this mean? Lower rates which btw have gone down.
Remember.. INVENTORY is the “Majic” sauce not interest rates.
The maximum size of home-mortgage loans eligible for backing by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will rise to $1,089,300 next year in a few expensive markets, from $970,800 this year, the Federal Housing Finance Agency said Tuesday.
