If there ever was a best time to buy in Florida, this is it. The real estate market is witnessing a drop in prices that will probably not last for long. The 04-05 summers scared a lot of the buyers but there have been no hurricanes ever since and soon demand will start to increase again sky-rocketing prices.
If you are looking for the ultimate luxury in the heart of Florida, the place to be is the Venetian Causeway. You are in the middle of Miami City and Miami Beach, between the intra-coastal and the bay, one short boat ride away from the Atlantic. The magnificent Port of Miami is within view. You’ll have famous neighbors and even become famous yourself. Your house will have a grand pool and a marina. You are a few minutes drive from great shopping places and party havens such as Bayside and South Beach. Yet you are isolated from the noise and traffic of the city. Even though an actual highway passes near your house, a toll must be paid and it mostly gets local traffic.
Is Miami too much for you? It is the city that never sleeps. If you want to drift away from it but just for a bit you might want to try Bal Harbor Village and all the islands around it. Gated communities hide beautiful homes with a very intimate feeling and a great sense of security. You will be part of a very exclusive community with great restaurants and ultimate luxury shopping in the Bal Harbor stores. You will be in the middle of South Florida, located at equal distance from the two main metropolitan areas: Miami and Fort Lauderdale. And West Palm is not that far either. You are right by famous Collins Avenue. State parks and beaches are within walking distance if you like to work out and mingle.
Are you looking to take the Florida experience to the max? Experience the best it has to give from all year long summers to becoming one with the ocean? The place to be is the Keys. And it doesn’t get anymore exclusive then owning a house in the Florida Keys. There isn’t a lot of land to build on, it doesn’t get any better. Have you ever been to the Keys? If you haven’t, you have to put this on you to do list ASAP. And even though there is an airport in Key Largo, I recommend driving down from Miami or Homestead. The Overseas Highway will be the best drive of your life from passing the Everglades to being on a thin strip of land in the middle of the ocean, then on the 7 mile bridge. You have access to unique wildlife such as alligators, rare birds, and, who knows, you might even spot one of the almost extinct Florida panthers. Snorkeling, diving, deep sea fishing, rare beautiful coral reefs are all at your finger tips. And let’s not forget about the famous Key West margaritas and their famous key lime pie. It is also the place were the weather stays the warmest all year long and it makes the famous Florida unbearable summer heat better because of the ocean breeze.
Not convinced yet? I find that hard to believe. You can have your dream house in Paradise. South Florida is the place to be and you should go ahead and see for your self. What are you waiting for?
