It’s not just about sunny days almost all year round and the breathtaking ocean views that make Sunny Isles Beach one of the most beautiful locations in South Florida. The small island north of Miami has unique characteristics that make it even more special. No wonder, the most important developers in Florida chose the community to build super luxurious oceanfront condos, attracting celebrities and millionaires from all over the world. Keep reading to learn 5 strong reasons that make Sunny Isles Beach one of the best places to buy real estate in Miami.
1 – Sunny Isles Beach is considered one of the safest cities in Florida
In general, Florida is considered a very safe place, with low crime rates. However, there are neighborhoods and communities that stand out and Sunny Isles Beach is one of them. The island is among the Top 10 safest communities in the Miami area and among the Top 20 in the entire state of Florida.
2 – Sunny Isles Beach Is Not Overcrowded
In times of pandemic it is always a good idea to avoid crowding. The luxury community offers great restaurants, bars, cafes and shops, but the concept is different. Usually places are not overcrowded as in central Miami. With a population of just over 20,000, Sunny Isles has become a safe haven in COVID-19 times. It is the ideal place for those who want to combine “walkability” (do everything by foot), a friendly atmosphere and a touch of urban feel. Despite receiving tourists, as it has one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida, Sunny Isles is a predominantly residential neighborhood, without the hustle and bustle of central regions like Downtown and South Beach.
3 – Attractive prices
Sunny Isles Beach offers condos that are among the most luxurious in the world. That’s where the famous Porsche Design Tower and Armani Residences are located. The Porsche Design building was a milestone in the history of the South Florida real estate market. The tower allows residents to enter the car in the elevator and park inside the apartment. The initiative, which originally came to provide comfort and privacy to the owners, ended up also becoming a great differential in times of pandemic, since it avoids crowds inside the elevators, one of the places with the greatest risk of contagion.
So many luxury condominiums with different characteristics can convey the false idea that the region is geared exclusively to the high income public. Not quite! The region also offers options with more affordable prices, especially when compared to other luxurious Miami neighborhoods, such as Coral Gables, Key Biscayne or Fisher Island. The real estate offer in the region is very versatile.
With the guidance of a good broker, you will find a property that is affordable for both investment, housing and leisure. The options range from single-family homes to apartments. Of course, the new launches come from more exclusive prices, but there are also excellent buildings from the 80s and 90s, very well maintained, with attractive prices and low maintenance costs.
TIP: Sunny Isles borders a very nice neighborhood in Miami: Aventura. Consider researching some condos on the border of the two neighborhoods. Many of them are officially located in the Aventura, but separated only by a beautiful narrow canal. This is the case of the Mystic Pointe.
4 – The island is known for its diversity
Sunny Isles is known for being a friendly, welcoming and, above all, diverse neighborhood. The small island is a mix of nations. Each inhabitant of a different nation adds a special touch to the community. Brazilians abound, as well as Russians and Canadians. The average age of its residents is 44 years, with a homogeneous distribution among retirees, middle-aged people and young people. As already mentioned, the island is predominantly residential and family oriented.
5 – Prime location
The island offers everything you need, without having to leave for anything. Sunny Isles restaurants are great. Supermarkets, bars, cafes, banks and many other establishments are part of the daily lives of its residents, in addition to the beautiful beaches. There is, however, another characteristic that makes it different. Despite being exclusive and reserved, Sunny Isles is just minutes from the main areas of Miami. Its residents are practically on the side of the two main shopping malls in the city: The Aventura Mall and the Bal Harbor Shops . And if the desire for a more eventful night hits, don’t forget that South Beach is just minutes away.
