Lenders of Miami FHA Loans with No Lender Overlays

Miami can be a place of many guises. There is the TV Version of Miami displayed on “Miami Vice” or the movie “Bad Boys”. Someone might envision Alligators or Elian Gonzalez being whisked away in the middle of the evening. Miami certainly has trendy shopping boutiques and swanky resorts. It is a playground foe the wealthy celebrities. To contract, there are also a ton of strip malls in the surrounding suburbs. But this collective weirdness happens to sit on one awesome piece of real estate. Miami has turquoise waters and white-sand beaches. It also has gleaming Art Deco architecture and is known for having more than its fair share of beautiful people. Joan Didion once described the city as having a “kind of perilous attraction.” And it does. You can lose yourself here among the supermodels, the ex-pat Cuban population and the countless figures who live on the fringes. It is hard to believe at times that just a few generation ago Miami was little more than a frontier town.

Like most modern American metropolises, greater Miami is composed of several smaller cities. Here the cookie-cutter developments all tend to blend into one indistinguishable mass of peach stucco and Spanish tile. For the purposes of navigation, however, the city is essentially divided in two: Miami, the mainland city, which is businesslike in demeanor, with offices, malls, arts districts and residential subdivisions; and, connected to the mainland by causeways to the east, Miami Beach (a.k.a. South Beach, a.k.a. SoBe), the slim, glamorous barrier island that is draped in Deco hotels and where life is lived as if it were one big party. If you have only a few hours to spare, choose one side of town and stick with it — or you may end up spending all your time sitting in traffic.
