Homestead is a growing city and have lots of fairly new developments that are located right off Campbell Dr which is exit 2 off the Turnpike, close to the recently built Baptist hospital. Homestead is not as heavily congested as other areas of Miami-Dade County, and most neighborhoods are scattered around within a reasonably short distance to the Turnpike and US-1. I'm there quite frequently showing properties and have found traffic to be manageable even in rush hours in comparison to other areas. Within your price range you have plenty of options with a minimum of 3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms/ 1 car garage. Fell free to contact me at your convenience, so we can discuss about your ownership goals in Homestead.
