By Lucie Vanlier 1 Nov 2022

Moving to Miami? Rising property values on single-family homes, a large availability of condos for sale, and diverse neighborhoods with proximity to white sand beaches make Miami a hot spot for both first-time and established home buyers. Here are the five best places to buy a home in the Miami area!

Coral Gables 

It is a very large neighborhood, one of the nicest in Miami, with its Hispanic architecture, its villas and its atmosphere of a real city within a city. In the heart of Coral Gables, many restaurants animate Miracle Mile, the main artery of this very safe neighborhood. Further north is the Biltmore, Coral Gables' historic and majestic hotel. It is also home to the French American School of Miami (EFAM), from kindergarten to fifth grade, and the University of Miami (UM).

Coconut Grove 

Unlike other Miami neighborhoods, Coconut Grove is an atypical place, very green, with a European atmosphere. Along with a stable real estate market and a number of spacious Mediterranean-style homes, the area boasts great schools, waterfront views, close proximity to Virginia Key and Key Biscayne, and it’s one of the safest neighborhoods in Miami.

Miami Beach

Between the Art-Deco architecture, the miles of stores, the parties and beaches, the events such as Art Basel, Miami Beach is a first choice seaside resort. Some people have chosen to live there for its gentle way of life (there is a lot of cycling) and to live in one of the pretty houses with a pontoon. For families, you should know that Miami Beach High School is a renowned school.

Edgewater

Located north of Downtown Miami, Edgewater is quickly becoming one of the best neighborhoods in Miami to buy a home. Edgewater's rapid development and proximity to Miami's financial district puts it at the top of the list for investors and home buyers. Edgewater homes vary in size and exclusivity. From bungalows to beautiful multi-story complexes, the variety of homes available for sale is abundant. Most Edgewater students attend Indian River Elementary School and Edgewater Public School.
