Are you a potential buyer looking to settle into a nice Miami Beach home? First of all, we applaud your taste. Real estate buyers from all over the world are surging into the South Florida market to have their own slice of paradise in the form of a Miami Beach luxury home. You have the general location down, but are curious as to what additional attributes you should be seeking. There is certainly no shortage in quality features to look for in these properties, but here are just a couple that make for particularly fine Miami Beach living.

Water Frontage – This may go without saying, most luxury Miami Beach homes for sale do have fabulous waterfront locations. That being said, the actual location of your waterfront home is particularly important. Most Miami Beach homes on the water are in beautiful Biscayne Bay and have incredible views of the Downtown Miami skyline. Every view is different, so make sure you see it for yourself and always go for waterfront property - if possible.

Quality Neighborhoods – Certain areas are more desirable than others in terms of privacy, tranquility and overall aesthetics. Some communities to consider in Miami Beach include Fisher Island, Star Island, Hibiscus Island and the Sunset Islands. It’s no coincidence that all communities listed end in “island’. Island living provides a level of exclusivity and fine living that is incredibly appealing.

Architectural Design – Miami Beach may be famous for its Old Spanish-style homes and classic waterfront mansions, but there is so much variety out there. From ultra-modern mansions to Mediterranean estates, there is literally a home for just about anyone. This quality is a bit more subjective, but equally important to the previous two. Find the property that screams “you”, and it will make for a greater luxury Miami Beach living experience.
