I would have to know a little bit more of what your interest are, meaning if you like beach or city or both!
You can get a little bit of both by being further east, such as Sunny Isles Beach, Bal Harbor or Aventura. You can have great shopping and dining, but be at the beach in minutes, or live right on the beach.
If you are looking for a second home, the beaches are where you would want to be so that you can enjoy the ocean and even the intercoastal. If you are looking to invest, then I suggest either the beaches or Downtown Miami, in the Brickell or Midtown area.
If you would like to discuss any of your options, feel free to email or call me at your convenience, I would be glad to give you my professional opinions.
