4 Great Places to Live in Miami

At Gables Riches, we are always looking for the next best neighborhood, and so far, this 2017, after doing our research, we’ve come up with a list of 4 great places to invest and live here in Coral Gables, Miami and its outskirts! In no particular order, you can find them below.

-Kendall: this is a wonderful suburb only a few minutes away from Miami’s urban experience. It’s very quiet and relaxed, with many outdoor caf├ęs where people go to talk, meet new people, listen to some music, work on their laptops, or simply take some time off their routines. There are some beautiful residential buildings many investors are very interested in, and there are plenty of options if you are looking for a place to live at a very reasonable rent price. A condo’s rent price with many amenities (pool, tennis court, recreation room, etc) is about $1,500.
-Pinecrest: living there will feel like an everlasting vacation. This beautiful community, only a few minutes from the beach, offers many possibilities to investors because prices aren’t that high right now, and we are sure that they will skyrocket in a few years. A very cozy 800-sqft apartment in a very quiet area can cost you $170,000, with amenities like laundry room, pool, security, etc. Pinecrest Garden, one of the jewels of this community, features over 1,000 varieties of exotic tropical plants and trees, and it offers wonderful summer camps for the children of the house.
-Cutler Bay: located just west of Biscayne Bay, this town has some very beautiful lakes with beautiful houses around them in quiet neighborhoods. Only a few steps from beautiful beaches, Cutler Bay is full of people who want to relax and take a deep breath out of Miami. Some very luxurious properties are available there, but also lovely condos at reasonable prices can be found in great neighborhoods. Its tropical atmosphere will make you feel as if you were on vacation all year long.
-Homestead: between Biscayne National Park to the east and Everglades National Park to the west, this town is only 35 miles south of Miami; that’s minutes away from all the excitement of the big city. Green, clean and beautiful neighborhoods full of very welcoming communities enchant many investors every year, and if you would like a quiet condo with a beautiful backyard and a unique lake view, Homestead is for you. Rent median price is $1,100, and opportunities in this town don’t usually last very long.

If you would like to live or invest anywhere in these beautiful locations, contact Gables Riches anytime! We guarantee that we can find the perfect home for you and your family.

Investing in Isles at Lago Mar

The Real Estate business in Florida is better than ever, and at Gables Riches we keep encouraging our clients to invest in the unique community of Isles at Lago Mar, in the heart of West Broward County, in the city of Sunrise. Extremely well located, this community features some of the best water views in the region; all homes border the elegant Lago Mar County Club and its beautiful lake.

 Isles at Lago Mar is only a block away from the world-famous Sawgrass Mills Mall; it’s also near the BB&T Center, Ikea, excellent restaurants, great shopping and amazing recreational parks. Immediate access to I-75, I-595 and the Sawgrass Expressway provides quick connections to the Fort Lauderdale and Miami airports, and prominent business centers throughout South Florida. This exclusive condominium complex was built between 1991-1994, and every year more and more investors decide to buy there because of the 6-7% return it provides. Another reason why investors are attracted to these properties is the fact that they come with a tenant in place with up to a year lease, which means that investors start having some cash flow from day one.

There are 368 units in this community, and you may choose between 2-bedroom or 1-bedroom apartments. Interior features include large open breakfast bar with separate dining area, fully equipped kitchens with contemporary-style cabinetry, full-size washer and dryer, study/solarium with golf course and sparkling water views, spacious walk-in closets and pantries, vaulted ceilings and assigned parking.

Being close to some of the best schools and universities in South Florida might also be appealing to some investors, but what captivates the most hearts are the many amenities available. And since they are simply way too good to ignore, here they are: 37-acre tropical landscape, exquisitely designed clubhouse, BBQ/picnic areas and pergolas, two indoor racquetball courts, fully equipped fitness center, two glistening swimming pools and spa, two privately lighted tennis courts, on-site management, bike racks and plenty of guest parking spots.

As Jeff Greene once said, “In real estate, you make 10% of your money because you’re a genius and 90% because you catch a great wave” and this opportunity here, in Isles at Lago Mar, is truly a great wave. Visit our website: to find all the information about the units available in this quiet, safe, exclusive and beautiful condominium complex in Broward. If you have any doubts or if you are interested, feel free to contact us anytime.
