HOW to CHOOSE a MIAMI neighborhood. Ever had a neighbor you WISHED you didn’t? Wish you’d known before you bought?

Ever had a neighbor you wished you didn’t?   If ONLY you’d  KNOWN  before you Bought! People move for hundreds of reasons.  A bad neighbor is ONE!   Not normally the FIRST  item divulged on a seller’s disclosure… a BAD NEIGHBOR is  frequent “enough” to warrant a BLOG!  pedestrian-720462

I sell homes in Miami… all kinds of homes, and all over… from the Keys up as far as Hallandale (mostly in Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Brickell, South Miami and Pinecrest though) .

I’m asked (a lot of questions!) – not only questions about the house itself,  or about the buying-process, or for guidance on what to offer and why…   but as to what any  given “neighborhood” is like.

Here’s what I suggest:  Driving by will give you a “rough idea”.   Rather than just driving by once though,  swing back by  again…. at another time of day.  If you’ve seen a house on a Monday morning,  spin by later in the afternoon or in the evening … or over the weekend.    Wander the neighborhood. Explore the streets. Talk with the neighbors.  Get a feel for what it would be like, to actually live there. Hang out for awhile.  Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you’ll make.  If it’s going to BE YOUR HOME,  take a few minutes to feel at home!  Miami is FULL of beautiful neighborhoods and homes to choose from.  It may be tougher than you think to narrow down the choices.  We look forward to welcoming you to Miami, and helping you find just the right fit!
