Because Island Shores is near Biscayne Blvd. (US1), on Rt. 826, near A1A (Collins Ave) and I-95, near Sunny Isles Beaches and Oleta River Park, walking distance to shopping and dining, the location is considered to be very convenient. Great neighboring cities of Aventura and Sunny Isles offer a huge selection of malls, shops and restaurants. Schools are Ojus Elementary (rated 8 out of 10), Highland Oaks Middle (6 out of 10, but with plenty of successful students), and ATM High (new, so not ranked).
Most recent sale of 2/2 with 955 sqft (closed 03/27/14) was a Homepath foreclosure - the buyer paid 104.9K.
Hope this helps,
