Short Story: The Truth About Beach Houses in Miami
Ah, yes. Miami. The beautiful city on the water. The city where everybody wants to buy their vacation property because of sun, the sand, the surf. If you’re thinking about buying property in Miami, you’ve likely thought about how important it is for you to be near a beach. So why not look for beach houses in Miami?
Actually, there’s great reason to not spend time looking for beach houses in Miami, and that’s because there aren’t any. Seriously! Not technically, anyway. One of the most popular misconceptions about Miami is that it’s full of amazing beach houses—where you can walk off your back patio and onto the sand, seagulls squawking overhead. But in fact almost all the beachfront property in the Miami urban area is occupied by high-rise condo towers. That’s not to say there aren’t myriad amazing, single-family waterfront homes! (Check out all of these gorgeous listings!) Yes, there are tons of beautiful mansions on the “beach”, but these usually are on the bay, or a canal, or along the Intracoastal Waterway. Again, not technically beach houses. So, what can you find on the beach?
If you’re certain you want to live on the beach—you’re in luck. You’ll find plenty of condos on the beach! And they’re pretty dazzling.
For example, this is a gorgeous condo listed that’s right on the beach. Again, in Miami you’re not going to find beach houses per se. The residential buildings on the beach are going to be condos.
