The 5 Best Ways to Find the Best Deals When Buying Pre-Construction Condos in Miami

by | Jun 11, 2022

New construction condos in Miami are becoming increasingly popular. Buying pre-construction has many advantages, such as choosing your own unit, floor plan, and upgrades. However, with the increase in popularity comes an increase in prices. So how do you find the best deals when buying pre-construction condos in Miami?

This article will discuss the five best ways to find the best deals when buying pre-construction Miami condos.

New Construction Miami

What is a Pre-Construction Condo?

A pre-construction condo is a condo that is not yet built. Miami pre-construction condos are becoming increasingly popular because they offer many advantages, such as choosing your unit, floor plan, and upgrades. Pre-construction prices are also typically lower than prices for condos already built.

However, since Miami-Dade County has been experiencing a construction boom, prices for pre-construction condos have increased. Downtown Miami, Sunny Isles Beach, and Edgewater have been trendy areas for new construction.

With these in mind, those considering buying a pre-construction condo in Miami should be aware of the current market conditions and know how to find the best deals.

What is a Pre-Construction Condo?

The area around Miami Beach and Downtown Miami has seen a construction boom in recent years. This has led to an increase in prices for pre-construction condos.

However, there are still ways to get a great deal on a pre-construction condo in Miami. If you are considering buying a pre-construction condo in Miami, here are five tips to help you get the most out of your purchase:

1. Negotiate with the developer

New Construction Miami

The developer’s sales team is typically very aggressive when it comes to new construction projects. They may try to pressure you into deciding on the spot.

Don’t be afraid to negotiate with the developer and their sales team. If you have your finances in order, you may be able to get a lower price for your unit.

It’s also important to remember that the developers’ sales team typically works on commission. So, if they can get you to pay a higher price for your unit, they will make more money.

Don’t be afraid to walk away from a deal if the developer is unwilling to negotiate. There are plenty of other pre-construction projects to choose from.

Additionally, some aspects of the property can be negotiated, such as the closing date, floor plan, and upgrades. For instance, if you are willing to wait longer for the project to be completed, the developer may be more inclined to give you a better price.

Keep in mind that the developer’s sales team is not your only option for buying a pre-construction condo. You can also work with a buyer’s agent who will have your best interests in mind.

Working with a buyer’s agent is a great way to ensure that you get the best possible deal on your pre-construction condo. A buyer’s agent will have access to information about upcoming projects and deals that may not be publicly advertised.

A buyer’s agent can help you negotiate with the developer and their sales team. They can also help you find pre-construction condos that fit your budget and needs.

2. Look for Early Bird Discounts

New Construction Miami

If you’re considering purchasing a pre-construction condo, one of the first things you should ask about is early-bird discounts. Developers typically offer these discounts to entice buyers to buy units early in the project.

This is because developers need to sell a certain number of units to get funding for the project.

Early-bird buyers play an essential role in ensuring that the project gets off the ground. In exchange for their commitment, they often receive a significant discount on the purchase price. 

Plus, they get first dibs on the best units in the project. So, if you are considering purchasing a pre-construction condo, be sure to ask about early-bird discounts.

You should also ask about other discounts that may be available, such as referral fees and bulk discounts. Referral fees are typically paid to real estate agents who bring in buyers.

So, if you have a friend or family member who is also considering purchasing a pre-construction condo, be sure to ask if they would be willing to refer you to the developer. 

Bulk discounts are typically given to buyers who purchase multiple units in a project. Investors often take advantage of bulk discounts to get a better return on their investment.

3. Search For Neighborhoods That Are Up-and-Coming

New Construction Miami

South Beach is already a well-established neighborhood with a lot of development.

While there are still deals in South Beach, you may want to consider searching for up-and-coming neighborhoods.

One of the benefits of buying pre-construction in an up-and-coming neighborhood is getting in on the ground floor.

Prices are typically lower in these neighborhoods, and there is more potential for appreciation.

Some of the best deals can be found in neighborhoods on the verge of becoming the next hot spot.

One example is Wynwood. Wynwood is a neighborhood in Miami that was once known for its warehouses and art galleries.

In recent years, it has become one of the most popular neighborhoods in Miami, with new restaurants and shops popping up all over.

Condos in Bay Harbor Islands are another great option. Bay Harbor Islands is a small neighborhood between Miami Beach and mainland Miami.

The neighborhood is home to two small islands, Bal Harbour Island and Indian Creek Island. A new construction condo located within these islands can offer stunning views of the water.

You may find that you can get more bang for your buck in these areas.

4. Look At The Terms And Conditions

When you purchase and look for preconstruction projects in Miami, you are not only buying the unit itself but also the terms and conditions of the sale.

It is essential to review these carefully before making a purchase. Some of the things you should look for include:

  • The developer’s reputation: Be sure to research the developer and their past projects. You can ask around, read online reviews, and look for any complaints that have been filed against them.

  • The sales contract: The sales contract should be clear and concise. It should outline the unit’s price, the estimated completion date, and the developer’s obligations.

  • Financing: Make sure you understand the financing options available to you. You should also make sure that you can get pre-approved for a loan before signing a contract.

  • The amenities: Be sure to ask about the amenities available in the building. Some of the things you may want to look for include a gym, a pool, and parking.

  • The fees: Fees such as maintenance fees and special assessments can add up. Be sure to ask about these before making a purchase.

Taking the time to review these terms and conditions can help you avoid any surprises down the road.

5. Hire A Real Estate Agent Who Specializes In Pre-Construction

If you are serious about finding the best deals on pre-construction condos in Miami, you should hire a real estate agent specializing in this type of property.

A good agent will have a network of developers and builders that they work with. They will also be up-to-date on the latest pre-construction projects.

A real estate agent familiar with preconstruction projects can help you navigate the process and ensure that you are getting the best possible deal.

Make sure to interview a few different agents before making a decision. You can also ask for referrals from friends or family.
