DOWNTOWN MIAMI (Jan. 2, 2020) - At least three distressed condo units - both shortsales and real estate owned (REO) by lenders - are formally listed for sale in the Downtown West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Island area in South Florida county of Palm Beach, according to a new report from Condo Vultures® Realty LLC.
