Before we start talking about Miami’s luxury real estate and before we tell you how to find it and buy it, let us first explain what Miami’s luxury real estate actually is. Namely, in order for a property to be considered a luxurious property, it must be located in a well-known location, it must be valuable price-wise, it must have large square footage, it must be made of top-notch materials which are following modern design, it must have all the luxurious amenities, and, it must be prestigious. Yes, the list can go on and on, but, what truly matters is whether a certain luxury property suits your needs and budget.

If you are a serious homebuyer, you already know all of this. But, if you are a first-time homebuyer, you probably need all the help you can get. Don’t worry, we are here to help you out. That is, we are here to share our guide for any homebuyer who needs help with finding and buying a luxury property in Miami.

Find the Right Real Estate Agent First

If you want to find real estate that suits your budget and all of your needs, having a real estate agent is preferred. But, if you want to find luxury real estate in Miami, a real estate agent is a must. And, why? Well, because only an agent of this kind can find you a home that has all the amenities you need and that is in your price range. Moreover, only an agent of this kind can show you the luxurious properties that are ‘off’ the market. Yes, on most occasions, luxurious properties are not listed – instead, they are shared only with the real estate agents that are well-connected.

In addition, having a real estate agent is also a good idea if you want to ‘shop’ for properties from distance. And, it is a great idea if you don’t want to be bothered with property shopping at all. Let your agents do all the work while you do the more interesting kind of shopping in Miami’s luxury stores. All you have to do is give them a list of must-haves (which we will mention in a second), and they will find you the luxury home of your dreams.

Create a List of Must-Haves

As previously mentioned, when planning to buy Miami’s luxury real estate property, you must start your journey with a thorough list of must-haves. This list should include all the things you want in your new home. For instance, you should write your preferred location, square footage, number of rooms and bathrooms, amenities inside and outside of the home, etc.

Moreover, it is also a good idea to create a list of can’t-haves, especially if you are letting your agent lead the way. He (or she) will need to know what you absolutely want and don’t want out of a property in order to find the right one. Otherwise, you will end up buying a home you are not entirely satisfied with. But, even if that happens, it is not the end of the world. With moving experts such as those from Pro Movers Miami, you can move all over the city without breaking a sweat.

Research Different Neighborhoods

Miami’s luxury real estates are, of course, located in Miami’s luxury neighborhoods. There are many of them across the city – which can be both good and bad for you. It is good because you will have plenty of options, and it is bad as checking all the neighborhoods and all the properties can be quite time and energy-consuming.

Our advice is to focus on the properties that fit your must-haves list, or on the properties that are close to your work or to your children’s school. However, if you don’t have any preferences, here’s a list of some luxurious neighborhoods in Miami that you will definitely love:

  • Star Island
  • Indian Creek Island
  • Tahiti Beach
  • Palm Island
  • Gables Estates

All of these neighborhoods are full of not only luxurious real estate options but also of places that will change your life. So, give them a look.

Have Your Finances in Order

Maybe one of the most important things you will have to do before you start your real estate journey is organize your finances. You already know that luxurious properties cost luxurious money! Depending on your needs and preferences, you will need anywhere between $1,000 and $5,000. This is a lot of money, thus, be sure to have everything assessed! Moreover, talk to your financial advisor before making a purchase as large as this one.

And, when assessing and planning your budget, don’t forget to include all other ‘smaller’ costs in it. For instance, if you plan to let experts lead the way of your luxurious move, you will have to have some money spared for them too. The same applies to hiring luxurious experts such as real estate agents, contractors, decorators, etc.

Professionally Inspect the Property before Buying

Maybe you found a perfect luxurious home located near your favorite luxurious yoga studio in Miami, or maybe you found a luxurious home that has all those things from your must-have list. Those are all great news! But, don’t get too excited and rush your decision just yet. Before you even think about buying Miami’s luxury real estate, or any other real estate out here, it is of key importance to have it professionally inspected. 

A professional home inspector will check the entire property, both inside and out, and tell you whether there is something wrong with it. This can help you save a ton of your time, energy, and of course, money, later on! 

As you have seen, there are many things you should know and do before you start buying Miami’s luxury property. The most important thing is to always work with the best expert you can find, whether that be a realtor, mover, or inspection. When you work with the right people (and when you know what you want), finding a luxury home that suits all of your needs and budget will be a breeze.
