For those seeking to purchase real estate in Miami Beach and cannot decide between getting a condo or home – you are not alone. They both have distinct qualities, distinct advantages and distinct disadvantages. Overall it’s great to own Miami Beach real estate but one must go over the positive and negatives of home and condo ownership to figure out what lifestyle is best for them. Listed below are the benefits of owning Miami Beach Homes and Condos:
Miami Beach Homes: There are dozens of high quality communities within Miami Beach some of which are private islands with gate guarded access. Fisher Island, Star Island, Indian Creek and Sunset Islands are just some of these fabulous communities with beautiful waterfront mansion property. There are also other communities that are on the island of Miami Beach including North Bay Road and South Beach. Some of the finest homes in all of South Florida can be found in Miami Beach and the neighborhoods they are in are quiet, beautiful and very nice.
If you are more of an urbanite and want to be close to the action – Miami Beach homes may not be for you. Also, if you are looking for a smaller space – there are many Miami Beach villas but condos may be the better option. While many homes have their own pool, waterfront access and even gym: sometimes condos just offer more amenities than homes if that’s what you’re interested in.
Miami Beach condos: South Beach (a community within Miami Beach) in particular has some of the finest condominiums available anywhere. The Continuum Condo located South of Fifth in South Beach is a particularly well known condo for its luxury and amazing amenities offered. It’s know that some of the best oceanfront locations with breathtaking views can only be found in the fantastic condos in Miami Beach.
Though some condos (especially penthouses) have multiple bedrooms that can outnumber homes, you’ll definitely find a larger inventory of homes with six or more rooms (if that’s what you’re looking for). Miami Beach condos are amazing, but if you’re looking to live in the quieter more private areas of Miami Beach – the home communities are probably better.
