SkyPalace at Mary Brickell Village – Monthly Newsletter

Dear SkyPalace at Mary Brickell Village friends,

Greetings from beautiful and sunny Miami! The Skyline team has been diligently working since our last email communication to you last month – with the Miami Herald article of June 4th – to finalize the construction financing process and commence construction. We find ourselves today in the advantageous position of negotiating with several lending sources and receiving Letters of Commitment from them by the end of July and then close on the construction loan shortly thereafter.

Timing could not have been better. The Brickell area real estate market is showing clear signs of strengthening. A recent article by the National Association of Realtors emphasized that “International Interest in US Homeownership Increases,” something that we see In a recent Bloomberg article the title exclaimed: “Miami’s Downtown Comes Alive as Condos Fill with Renters.” Such headlines and market reports like the one from the Miami Downtown Development Authority developed by Goodkin Consulting regarding “Residential Closings and Occupancy Study, March 2010” show that Brickell area real estate is doing very well and will continue to do so. NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams recently aired the story “Buyers Return After Miami’s Housing Bust.” NBC’s Today Show also recently aired the story “Condo Sales Skyrocket in Miami.” CNBC & MSNBC also aired a story under the title “Housing Battles Back.” All these stories are clear evidence that the market has turned for the better and will continue to strengthen in the Brickell area of Miami.
