Luxury Home Buyers Flock to South Florida

Luxury home buyers flock to South Florida for many reasons, including warm weather, culinary delights, views, beaches, art, yachts, and more. There are more than 2700 re-sale condos currently on the market between Sunny Isles and South Miami, priced at over $1 million. There are also about 350 condos to choose from with prices above $5 million.

Let’s take a look at Miami’s most luxurious re-sale and new construction condos by neighborhood.

Regalia, Sunny Isles
