The Best Property Type and Locations for Miami Waterfront Homes

by | Mar 3, 2021

There are so many different neighborhoods and luxury residential islands in Miami where you can find incredible waterfront homes for sale. Whether you’re looking for an ultra-modern single family home on Biscayne Bay in Miami Beach or you prefer a palatial oceanfront estate up the coast in Golden Beach, it’s easy to find your dream waterfront home for sale in Miami.

Luxury Beach Homes Offers Unparalleled Luxury Living

Luxury beach homes have always been the most sought after type of property in South Florida, and Miami waterfront homes are the epitome of luxury living. While condo living in Miami Beach may seem more popular, the single family home market in Miami is exploding in popularity.


Private Gated Islands in Miami

There are a handful of private gated communities in Miami Beach FL such as Sunset Islands, Star Island, La Gorce Island, and Indian Creek Island, where privacy and security are of the highest priority.


Indian Creek Island in Miami

Take Indian Creek Island, for example, home to some of the world’s wealthiest billionaires and where magnificent waterfront homes and estates on this island can cost upwards of $50 million. Just recently, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner purchased one of the few remaining waterfront lots for sale, where they will eventually build a new construction waterfront home. Just next door, famous singer Julio Iglesias owns a beautiful mansion on Indian Creek Island.

Waterfront Homes

Venetian Islands and Sunset Islands in Miami Beach

If you prefer to live closer to the action and want to be within a short walking distance to Lincoln Road mall and the nightlife in Miami Beach FL, living on the Venetian Islands or Sunset Island might just be the perfect place to call home. The Venetian Islands are a man made chain of tropical islands featuring some of the most spectacular homes for sale in Miami. With large lots and direct views to Biscayne Bay, the Venetian Islands is an incredible place to call home.


Property Types Ranging From Ultra-Modern To Mediterranean

The single family home market on these islands has increased drastically during the past 12 months, with properties selling like hot cakes. A single family home listing today might be sold as soon as it is listed on the MLS, so staying up to date on new property listings in Miami Beach FL is highly recommended.


Luxury Homes On The Venetian Islands

Luxury real estate on the Venetian Islands has always been a top Miami Beach location and homes typically will sell in the price range of $5 -$25 million, depending on the size and overall condition. The more expensive priced waterfront homes available for sale provide incredible views of Downtown Miami FL and the colorful neon skyline. The lower priced homes are most often older and need to be torn down and/or renovated and are primarily bought for the waterfront lots to build new construction properties.


Waterfront Homes

Waterfront Vs. Non-Waterfront Properties

But if you are looking to buy a dry lot single family home (non-waterfront properties) on the Venetian Islands, you can find a property on all of the streets, including Rivo Alto, Venetian Way, San Marino Dr or Dilido Drive and you can expect to pay anywhere between $2-5 million USD, depending on the type of property listings, size, condition and location.

Waterfront Homes

The Sunset Islands neighborhood is just a few blocks from Lincoln Road

Waterfront homes on the Sunset Islands tend to be a bit more expensive, mainly because of the private gated access and the larger lot sizes and premium views. Sunset Island is home to a number of celebrities and the owners come from all over. Properties on the Sunset Islands have increased in price that past 10 years, do to high demand for Miami waterfront homes.


1757 West 27 Street, Sunset Islands II, Miami Beach

One of my new favorites Miami waterfront homes for sale is located in the Sunset Islands at 1757 West 27 Street on Sunset Island II. This new construction single family home features architecture and design by Max Strang and has 7 bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms and includes over 10,000 square feet of living space. The large backyard provides max views and has an infinity swimming pool with bay and skyline views. This with its own private dock and easy accessibility to the Atlantic ocean. The house is a beautiful blend of Florida tropical design and modern architecture. The List Price is $27 million.

Waterfront Homes

Record Breaking Sales on Miami Homes For Sale

Real Estate in Miami is booming, especially in the luxury single family home market, as more families shy away from urban condo living and are looking for more privacy and space, which can only be found in a house. For this reason, real estate prices in Miami Beach have seen dramatic increases in prices and new property listings on the MLS usually have multiple offers within the first month on the market.

Oceanfront Living in Altos del Mar

The Miami waterfront homes for sale in Altos del Mar are one of only two places in Miami where you can buy a home directly on the ocean. In addition to Golden Beach, homes are situated directly on the Atlantic Ocean and offer incredible views and privacy.

New Construction Homes Being Built in Miami Beach

There are some incredible new construction homes that are being built right now that will be coming for sale in Miami FL in the near future, but these homes for sale are priced at a premium.


Ask any local realtor, and they will say that one of the primary catalysts of the rise of prices for Miami waterfront homes is the influx of Silicon Valley tech guys moving to Miami FL. They are leaving San Francisco for a better quality of life and to take advantage of the tax laws in the state of Florida.


Owning a condo in Miami is easier to maintain, but nothing beats the privacy and security of owning your own home.


Buyers Relocating from California to Miami

Miami has experienced a large number of buyers relocating from the west coast, primarily from California. These home buyers want to be near Miami Beach and are looking for their own trophy real estate listings in this part of the world. The younger 30 somethings also want to have access to the Miami nightlife and Miami, FL lifestyle and tend to focus their real estate search on Miami Beach, FL and Brickell Miami. It’s often quoted that Florida is quickly becoming the new Silicon Valley of the south and the media has started to take notice.

Waterfront Homes

The Search For Island Living in Miami

There are other bayfront enclaves in Miami, FL such as North Bay Road, Palm (Palm Ave)and Hibiscus Island (Coconut Ln), and the beautiful Pine Tree Drive, all located within Miami Beach. These neighborhoods all have waterfront homes for sale and provide spectacular views of the skyline, as well as accessibility to all that Miami has to offer.


Spectacular Views From Every Room

You can find a home in these communities with amazing views and incredible architecture. The price of these homes usually will start around $4 million and go up from there, depending on property type, stories, beds/baths, and how long the listing has been on the market.


Properties in Coral Gables and Coconut Grove

There are also Miami waterfront homes for sale south of Miami Beach and Downtown Miami, more specifically in the lush tropical communities of Coconut Grove and Coral Gables. The Gables Estates Miami waterfront homes are perhaps the most expensive in South Florida, with prices reaching more than $50 million. These neighborhoods and schools are top notch and many families choose to make these Florida locations their home, where life is slower and more laid back. You can also find some great condos for sale in these as well, usually with listing prices far less than that of a home.

Waterfront Homes

Real estate is a highly competitive business in Miami FL and finding the right realtor who knows the local market and will show you the best property listings for sale, is more important than ever. A great real estate agent not only will search the MLS and provide you with a truly personalized consultation, but he/she will be able to help you find the perfect neighborhood and give you inside information on the areas, city, schools and the people.
