“Calabria” in Miramar Sold Out by Oscar Rodriguez with EWM Realty International

New Construction Sales In Miramar’s “Calabria” Community Closed Out

And we’re done…

I am happy to announce that in February of 2017 I took on the task of listing, marketing, negotiating, and closing out the remaining 17 new construction condominium units in this boutique community located between Miramar Parkway and Miramar Boulevard off of University Drive. In March of 2018, the developer closed on the sale of the one remaining unit and is officially sold out of inventory.

The Resale Marketplace In Calabria

There are of course opportunities to purchase in this development in the resale marketplace. If you are in the market for a condominium in this neighborhood, by all means feel free to reach out to me, and I will be happy to assist you in achieving your real estate goals; or just answering any specific questions you may have regarding “Calabria” in Miramar.

Having sold the above mentioned units in the span of about a year, I am very familiar with the nuances of the process that buyers have to go through to close on a home in this community. To give you an example of what I am referring to, I can tell you that as of the date of the publication of this article, the association started establishing reserves for their budget in January of 2018, which impacts the types of mortgage financing products available to consumers that need financing to purchase in “Calabria”. FHA loans are not available for those that require financing to purchase in this development. VA financing is not an option either as the project does not meet guidelines. Conventional financing should be available to consumers for this particular community once the reserves have reached the 10% threshold and the condominium association has been turned over to the homeowners by the developer, which should be sometime in 2018. In the meantime, there are “portfolio” lenders that we worked with throughout the sales cycle that were able to provide financing for this community’s buyers that did not pay in cash. Another important consideration to note when looking at units available for sale in this community is that the association provides insurance for the buildings’ exterior and you should obtain an “HO6” policy to insure your contents from the walls in of your unit.

The Concept

Inspired by the rich architecture of Calabria in Southern Italy, you will find a fascinating blend of traditional design and modern style. The contrast of traditional exteriors with contemporary innovation and open plan interiors show the current design trends in contemporary Italian architecture. Modern European kitchens and baths, open floor plans, and elegant recessed lighting set Calabria apart from the rest while maintaining a price that keeps this exceptional community in the heart of Miramar well within reach.
