This week’s spotlight focuses on properties that are within a short walking distance to downtown South Miami. More and more people are gravitating to neighborhoods where they can walk to amenities such as shops, restaurants and offices. South Miami offers all three and also has convenient access to the Metro Rail System which runs to the Miami International Airport, the Miami central business district and hospitals. I want to give a snapshot as to current listings that meet different lifestyles, but all around the common theme of having very high walk-scores, and where you really don’t need a car to get around. Proximity to amenities described herein is a major reason that South Miami property values are seeing a large increase. A sampling across different price points and property types follows:
