I’m excited about this new, I’ve been in Miami for a long tim to really see it blooming. I start with some idea of me doing what i really like and feel passion about it. Selling houses is not my work.. It’s my life. Building my own business takes dedication, so I recommend you to find your favorite area.
An emerging technology sector, its $2 billion port infrastructure upgrade, and the lack of a state income tax are encouraging more businesses and residents to relocate to South Florida. Single- family home transactions — which set an all-time Miami annual record in 2014 — increased 8.0 percent year-over-year in April 2015, from 1,155 to 1,247 of REALTORS ® (MIAMI). Existing condominium sales — which posted the second best year in Miami history last year despite an increase in sales of pre-construction condos— declined
6.8 percent, from 1,557 to 1,451.
Simply meaning, cause of the lack of a state income tax.you have more opportunities to grow your business in Miami much faster comparing to other cities.

Recently, South Florida was named as the seventh-best Small Business City in the U.S. by Biz2Credit, the leading online platform for small business finance. Riverside-San Bernardino, California, Chicago and NewYork Metro took the top three spots in the company’s 2015 ranking. Biz2Credit studied each market’s annual revenue, credit score, age of business, and other factors.

The Miami-Fort Lauderdale market jumped three spots from last year’s ranking, and was the only Florida market in the top-15.Tampa-St. Petersburg and Orlando finished 19th and 22nd, respectively. Miami’s average annual revenue and age of business each improved. Miami businesses had an average annual revenue of $418,329.65, up 11.3 percent from last year’s $375,856.The average age of Miami businesses was 41 months, down from 46.9 last year.

An increasing number of companies, including Microsoft, are working to turn Miami into America’s next tech hub. Venture capitalists and technology incubators have invested in the community and are encouraging more tech companies such as Miami-based social media startup Everypost.

This means, the future is over here and many companies know it people!

PortMiami, the top-ranked container cargo port in Florida with 900,000TEUs handled each year, has an opportunity to expand its world-renowned international business as it is deepening its channel from its current 42-foot depth to 50-52. When the deep dredge project is completed, PortMiami will be the only U.S. port south of Norfolk, Va. that can accommodate the new, mega cargo vessels that will pass through the expanded Panama Canal.

Besides getting advantage with taxes and many studies of business improvement shown in numbers, you will be also strategically well located. Miami is the door of North America, we have one of the busiest airports of the world  and we also have the ports, which is an amazing advantage when it comes to transport merchandise, import and export.

Embrasing Changes

Simple changes or big changes, there is a point is life that define us. Questions like: Who we are?, what makes us happy?, Can we do it?, Are we ready?…Screen Shot 2015-06-14 at 3.03.23 PM I’m very excited with changes my life has taken. Buying my first house it can be a mission, but impossible is often possible. I’m a Broker, so I’m very familiar with the process. I develop a simple list you most follow before buying a house. Organize. Look for all the documents you need before like: Tax Reports (2 last years), Bank Statements (Last 6 months at least), References letters, credit scores. Savings. Save money as much as you can, cause you are not counting other expenses besides the price of the house.  I’ll explain in my next post. Mortgage. After the 2 first steps of Organize and Saving are done, this step will be a piece of cake. Find a good mortgage to review your potencial buyer profile. Top Quality. Look for a realtor that really know what he is doing, because one tiny details can bring back the contract or worst it will be accepted with errors which can bring in the future many complications. Patience. Many calls back, sending documents back, need for signs. This are common things that happens along the process, you just have to be patience. Celebrate. This is what we are doing! but quickly i start with my inside deep reparation project, now that’s another story! Sharing a happy Monday to you!
