One of my favorite ways to research real estate is from an ElliptiGO bike.

It slows down the viewing process and heightens the senses being outside of an insulated vehicle. If you would like to join me on a ride contact me directly and be sure to join my group on Facebook- ElliptiGO Miami.

On September 23rd, 2018 I rode my ElliptiGO bike from Edgewater to South Beach and then headed North along the ocean through Miami Beach, Surfside, Bal Harbor, Sunny Isles, Golden Beach, and Hollywood. When the pavement in Hollywood ran out, I turned around and came back South and came across 79th St to Biscayne Blvd and rode it back South to about 25th Street in Edgewater. The ride took me about 7 hours with stops included and covered over 53 miles of scenic views.

Regalia on the edge of Sunny Isles and Golden Beach is one development that stuck out to me on the ride as something very unique and special.

Regalia consists of 39 incredibly lavish residences. Each residence has over 7,000 square feet of interior space with an additional 2,000 exterior space. These are sky homes of the highest caliber. While Sunny Isles Beach has some of the most elite real estate in South Florida, Regalia set a new standard for luxury.

Residents have concierge and 24 hour personal attendants. Each residence has its’ own private elevator and 360 degree views of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal, and Downtown Miami. All finishes are imported and of the highest caliber including Italian marble, rich wood, and carpet, with kitchens that are modern and completely equipped with the latest in culinary technology. These unique sky homes are from 4 to 5 bedrooms and beachhouses have more square footage. The property is evocative of a Turkish hama, with seclusion, privacy, and luxury of the highest importance in all areas of the amenities from the spa to the state of the art fitness centers and spa treatment rooms. Regalia sets a new standard for decadence in Sunny Isles.

Sunny Isles is a diverse city on a barrier island northeast of Miami and contains some of the architecturally inspired and luxurious developments in South Florida. The area was designated a tourist destination as early as 1920 and it blossomed. Developers continue to favor this area and some of the world’s most famous architects and builders continue to break ground on oceanfront condominiums from Micheal Dezer to Donald Trump. It is a short distance from the village of Bal Harbour with world class shopping and fine dining. It is equidistant from the Miami International Airport and the Fort Lauderdale International Airport, making it easy to commute nationally from. From shopping to dining, Sunny Isles is a premier destination and place to call home.

Fla. GDP hits $1 trillion mark

ORLANDO, Fla. – July 16, 2018 – Florida's gross domestic product topped $1 trillion Friday, an economic output that would make the Sunshine State the world's 17th largest economy if it were an independent country, the state chamber said.

The milestone has been expected. University of Central Florida economic analyst Sean Snaith said the state has been strong in all areas of employment.

"This is really being driven by fundamentals," he said. "This is not just a fluke of an overheated economy."

Florida's economy has grown larger than Saudi Arabia's, Switzerland's and Argentina's, the chamber said.

The economist who authored the study pointed to growth in manufacturing. "Those [jobs] are growing faster here than the U.S. the last few years, " said Jerry Parrish, Florida Chamber Foundation chief economist.

The $1 trillion figure was calculated based on the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis' most recent GDP number of $984 million for the fourth quarter of 2017, and a formula that projects current statistics that have yet to be factored in by the bureau, including job growth, goods, services and other factors.

Key factors driving the state's growth that can be seen in Metro Orlando's economy include low unemployment, population growth and tourism. The broad successes in those areas make the $1 trillion figure sustainable, Snaith said.

"The near-term risk of recession is still fairly low," Snaith said. "… Momentum in the labor market, the tax cuts and jobs act, all that has been a force of adrenalin, if you will, for economic growth. Could we drop below that? It's possible, but that would be temporary. This is a mile marker on a longer-run trend as opposed to being fleeting or cyclical."

Florida has been adding $2.7 billion to its GDP each day on average, the Chamber said in its release.

At the start of 2008, the state's GDP stood at $757 billion adjusted for inflation, according to BEA. It dropped to $715 billion by the third quarter of 2009 but has since risen steadily. The $1 trillion projection would represent a 39.86 percent increase.

The Chamber cited unemployment lower than the national average and other factors driving the growth.

"… Florida continues to break visitation records, and our state is continuing to diversify its economy," its release said.

At Fun Dimension your family and friends will enjoy laser tag, spin zone, bungy dome, indoor playground, 7D theater, and arcade with redemption. I visited recently with my daughter.

The decision process to buy or rent your home can be difficult as it is impacted by dynamic known and unknown variables.

Although there is no absolute science to the decision, I find the attached excel sheet can be helpful in providing an analytical tool for consideration.

It calculates the internal rate of return of buying vice renting a home.
