Pending Sale In Ponce Davis | 8345 Ponce de Leon Road | Asking Price:$2,900,000 There have been no closed sales in the Ponce Davis area so far in 2010 and there is currently only 1 pending sale. The slow activity is likely due to the fact that the price point in the Ponce Davis area is so high and that market is just not moving as quickly as the $1,000,000 and under market.  Click to view homes for sale in Ponce Davis area of Miami, FL.

The best thing about Pine Manor is that it is located in a quiet residential community, yet is just steps from all of the restaraunts and shops in downtown South Miami.  There are 4 different models offerred in this gated and walled community.  Named after the Dutch Caribbean Islands, the townhouses in Pine Manor feature beautiful kitchens with top of the line appliances, sundeck, courtyard, 2 car garage, and impact resistant windows and doors.  The townhouses were completed in 2008.  To view a list of all townhomes (10) that are currently for sale in Pine Manor, click here.

Greeting everyone, this week I wanted to talk about hiring a Real Estate professional or Realtor to assist you with your home buying needs. If you are in the market to buy right now, do you know how much it costs YOU as the buyer to HIRE a Realtor? The magic number is $0.00. See, when Realtor decides to work with a buyer, the buyer pays nothing to the Realtor, because most often the seller is paying a commission that the listing agent will eventually split with the agent that brings a qualified buyer. So for $0.00 you are getting an array of services from a knowledgeable Real Estate professional (assuming you hired the right one) that will not only help you get through the home buying process its self, but will alleviate alot of head aches, and most important save you time and money. I'...

  If one has to give an example of a city which started from scratch and then went on to assume importance in many fields; then South Miami will be the most appropriate. In its larval stages this site was just a privately owned piece of land. W.A Larkins was owner and it was largely due to his efforts that it slowly developed into the bustling city that it is today. That this city was very insignificant during times of its inception can be judged from the fact that it has taken its name from its more illustrious neighbor; Miami. This small community is now considered very fashionable in South Florida. Growth of this site and its community was very slow to begin with. A post office was established by Larkins, who was founder of this city. Slowly as a community developed, it gained more a...

I'd received an e-mail regarding the ICE *In case of emergency contacts *( mother-husband,etc). Simply add the phone numbers in your mobile address book for the persons you would want to receive a call if harm to you happen in an accident. They say that police is trained to look up in your cell phone for contacts in the ICE listing.I'd added two ICE's in mine. Some days after that it came to my attention that the ICE e-mail is an hoax virus. The virus look up in the cell root directory and depletes the pay phones, or, if a text message send randomly hits your cell and if found the word ICE you are charged for a premium rate message.I'd received a few text messages lately, and, I don't know the senders. Just let's be careful, even if the tool sounds very good to you.Happy Thanksgiving day!!

So what does a girl pick up on her travels from Weston to South Miami? The Biltmore Bungalows is your reply! If you are driving on Miller Road (SW 56 Street) and you past by some small cottages along 62nd Avenue and Miller Road, then you just past the Biltmore Bungalows. These small homes were cottages used by the husbands mistresses who would reside at the Biltmore Hotel. Also, you may see red foxes in South Miami area. Of course one of my listings is close by.
