What Brickell Apartments for Rent Real Estate Agents Don’t Want You To Know
June 29, 2017
The job of your Brickell real estate agent is to present you with real estate options that best suit your lifestyle and budget. Their job is to go out and find the best condos on the market that meet your needs, handle all of the behind the scenes work, put the paperwork together, make the phone calls, do the negotiation and finalize the deal. They work hard for the commission that they earn, and the more you pay for your Miami condo, the more they make. So, what some agents don’t want you to know is that finding an affordable Brickell condo is easy to do if you’re okay with being on a lower floor.
Some people prefer being towards the top of the building to ensure privacy and breathtaking views, but these units tend to be much more expensive than ground floor units. There are many pros to lower level units, such as being closer to the lobby and a shorter commute to the parking lot or garage when you are coming and going.
If you’re passionate about living in a five-star Brickell condo but not so passionate about paying a million dollars for one, make sure you let your agent know that you’re interested in residences on the lower floors if it means the price is also lower.
One bedroom units like #700 at 950 Brickell Bay Drive sell for around $299,000 and put residents just a few floors from the main lobby which is staffed with a professional and multilingual concierge, valet and security for ultimate safety and convenience. Compared to units higher up in the building that sell for closer to $800,000, lower floor units are a great compromise for owners who want the luxury Brickell lifestyle without paying the high Brickell prices.
One perk about a ground floor unit is that you don’t have to worry about walking lightly as to not disturb the people who live directly below you. A lower floor unit also means shorter elevator rides and fewer stairs to climb each time you enter and leave your condo. A lower level unit is also closer to the amenities like the pool and fitness center, making it easy to take advantage of these luxury amenities.
When you have a really good agent, they will listen more than they talk and work tirelessly to find you the condo that best suits your family, your style, and your budget. Their goal is to help you find your dream home, which in turn earns them a commission. If you’re looking for a luxury condo but want something relatively inexpensive, remind your Brickell real estate agent that lower level condos are perfectly fine with you.
