Senate passes part of property tax cut plan Compare property tax reform proposals The House adjourned until 3 p.m. Monday to work through a number of issues, and while the Senate has not adjourned, its next move is unclear. With broad proposals in play, the atmosphere is tense as negotiations get underway. So far, the Senate has pretty much adhered to Gov. Crist’s original proposal, but the House has strayed from that script. Two specific House proposals don’t play well in the Senate: An assessment cap on commercial and non-homestead properties of 3 percent per year, and a one cent increase in the sales tax to buy down the school portion of property taxes. “We are very pleased that the House is willing to offer much-needed relief to (non-homestead and commercial owners) whose tax bills ...

The Miami River and its surrounding neighborhoods have become magnets for all kinds of energy and activity over the last couple of years. Private sector developments along the River are at an all time high, and are expected to grow significantly in the years to come. Florida's State Legislature created the Miami River Commission in 1998 and is the official clearinghouse for all public policy and projects related to the Miami River. The Commission has become an important ally to the City in optimizing the extraordinary resources - historic, cultural, economic, environmental and recreational - of this unique waterway. The Department of Economic Development serves as the liaison to the Miami River Commission.   A 1999 report funded by the Miami River Commission revealed that the Miami Rive...

10 Must Know Mortgage Terms            The Miami condos searchShopping for a new home is fun and exiting. Yet securing financing to buy real estate can be stressful.

This initial rate is usually locked in for one or more years. Once the initial term is over, the interest rate on an ARM loan may go up within specified limits over predetermined intervals during the course of the loan. The lower initial interest rate associated with an...

In a recent NBC6.net story titled “Population Boom Hits Downtown Miami”, Jorge Perez, Miami’s leading developer whose company The Related Group is responsible for the development of an estimated 6,400 units in the Dwntwn (no pun intended)/Brickell area, states that his only regret was not buying more land near his first building in the area, the 896-unit One Miami, located at the mouth of the north bank of the Miami River and Biscayne Bay. His prognosis: there will be 20,000 new units in Downtown Miami in the next five years that “will get occupied over time. The more those buildings get occupied, the more the city will work". The more those buildings get occupied, the more the city will work? Will the city’s urban core actually work as a result of local government’s lack of proper plan...

Florida Mortgage Fraud Still Running Rampant, Miami Herald Investigation ConcludesFiled under: Mortgage Fraud Fudging a little on that Florida home loan application may seem innocent enough: you just exaggerate income a little; boost your credit score; hide some down payment help from the mortgage lender.After all, the borrower probably has every intention of paying the loan.And the Florida mortgage broker who looks the other way is just helping someone realize their dream of home ownership.But what may seem like harmless lying is fraud.Its motive: hoodwinking banks to fund loans, so borrowers can squeeze into the homes that suit their fancy.While mortgage fraud often takes the form of complicated criminal schemes, lying to the lender - called origination fraud because it takes place at...
