Neighborhoods in Miami: How to choose yours?

When we do not know Miami, we imagine it as a postcard decor: an infinite beach under a sun that would shine endlessly. However, what makes the city so rich is the diversity of neighborhoods that can be found there, sometimes far from what we imagine in Miami when we've never been there.

Choose your neighborhood carefully, a necessary step

Also, to choose a property in which to invest in Miami, do not neglect the neighborhood where you want to settle. The moods are very different and will greatly influence the lifestyle. Real estate prices can also change from single to double between two neighborhoods! The charm of Miami is that neighborhoods are linked but not alike. The best choice depends only on you, your expectations and your lifestyle.

Barnes offers a quick overview of the main Miami neighborhoods where it is good to settle:


If you are looking for calm and a high quality of life, while staying close to downtown, head towards Aventura ! This city located northwest of Miami offers perfectly maintained streets, gigantic golf courses and many luxury boutiques.

Bal Harbor and Surfside:

Neighborhoods Bal Harbor and of Surfside are home to a population from around the world. This high-class neighborhood in North Miami Beach is just a chain of luxurious hotels and sandy beaches.


Brickellit's the financial district of Miami. If you are looking to live close to your work, many residential buildings are hidden among countless glass and steel towers. The streets are not crowded during the day but once night falls, the young executives turn into night birds ready to party all night in the many bars in the area.

Coral Gables:

This very residential city is peopled with villas with styles ranging from Colonial to Renaissance through Art Deco, which are mostly invisible from the road, sheltered by the tropical vegetation escaping from the huge gardens. Coral Gablesit is the perfect place to raise children. The parks are numerous and the proximity of famous schools makes it a safe and good place to live.

Coconut Grove:

If you are looking for authenticity, Coconut Grove is made for you ! In a very "village" atmosphere, the vegetation seems to be recovering its rights and the houses with disparate styles have something a little bohemian. And it's a true paradise of sport. Between walking, cycling and sailing, there is something for everyone.

Downtown Miami:

Close to Brickell while being a bit more residential, Downtown has many assets to make. The district is in full development and the real estate projects multiply.

South Beach:

South Beach is a true paradise of the party. This is the Miami we imagine, between Art Deco, cocktails, shopping and beaches stretching to infinity. The neighborhood never goes to sleep, and it's the place to be if you are afraid of getting bored.

The council of Barnes :

Do not hesitate to call on your Miami real estate agent to inform you about the different neighborhoods and their compatibility with your criteria. All real estate agents have access to the same properties so all you have to do is choose an agent to listen!
