Miami is the ideal location for boat lovers; it is often compared to a modern Venice. Most of the city and its areas are in the immediate proximity of waters, either the ocean or the intracoastal waters. Waterfront Miami homes are logically premium properties, the nicest and most expensive Miami houses have water views.
- Rule 1: The nicest are the views, the most expensive are the homes.
- Rule 2: The closest to South Beach the most expensive the homes.
Boat lovers traditionally prefer Miami waterfront homes that offer some shelter such as the ones located on the intracoastal way either wide bay view homes or houses with canal views. Most of Miami marinas have disappeared to give life to waterfront condominiums.
Boaters find it more difficult and much more expensive to dock their vessels, owning a Miami waterfront homes solves this issue. The western side of Miami Beach is on the water with all its islands from South to North, Sunset Islands, La Gorce Island, Biscayne point, Stillwater drive, Surfside, Indian Creek, Bal Harbour village, Eastern Shores, Golden Beach.
Between Miami and Miami Beaches lay several islands as well, Star Island, Palm Island, Hibiscus Island, the Venitian islands. Those islands are located next to South Beach. From the Miami side, several communities have also water access, from South to North Baypoint, Morningside, Belle Meade Miami Shores, San Soucis, Keystone Point.
All waterfront communities and their homes are generally speaking considered upscale and therefore command higher prices than dry lot single family homes. Waterfront single family homes are not immune to market downturn but prove to be much less sensitive .
