Buying a Miami Vacation Home? What to Look For.

Is there a better vacation destination than Miami? We’ll admit to being biased, but we think this is the best city for living and vacationing. Buying a vacation home is a way to do both. People are drawn here for many different reasons; vibrant nightlife, gorgeous beaches, and a rich culture are a blend of all the people who have made their lives here over time. The idea of a vacation home is exciting, and The Kern Team is here to guide you through the process. 

What Does Your Ideal Vacation Look Like?

One of the most important considerations when looking for your vacation home is the location. Miami is full of unique neighborhoods that each have their own personality. Your vacation home should be in a place that embodies the kind of vacation you will enjoy for many years to come. If you love to take a beach walk at sunrise you may want to put proximity to the beach at the top of your list. If you’re all about luxury and glam life, South Beach might be the perfect place to focus your search. If you want to be close to the action but in a serene neighborhood setting, your perfect vacation home may be in Coral Gables. 

Another important consideration will be the size of the property you’re seeking. Will this be a getaway just for your and your partner? If so, a little love nest bungalow or a beachfront condo might be ideal. On the other hand, if you plan to eventually have kids and grandkids all under one roof at the same time a home with space to grow could be a better fit for your family in the long run.

Look Into Your Future

When looking for your vacation home you should consider how and when you will be using the property. Think about what times of the year you plan to be in Miami, and how often. It’s also good to consider what you’ll do with the property when you aren’t in Miami. Homes in Miami have great potential as short-term rental properties, however, some areas have some restrictions.

You should also consider future development plans. Miami is a continually evolving city – just one of the things that makes it such an amazing place to be. Consider what different neighborhoods have in the works for new infrastructure, planned developments, and amenities. These are all things that can have an impact on property values, not to mention your future vacation experiences.

A vacation home is a great investment in both real estate and in your lifestyle. When you consider all the details before you make a final choice, you will end up with the perfect place to relax with your family long into the future.
