It depends. If you are going to continue your studies in Miami, then the proximity to the school will always be important.
Taking into account your budget, the safety factor and the proximity to the beach, I will suggest the area west of US 1 from the end of I 95 to sunset street.
It is a very central area in town and it is not far from the beach. The roads area is just minutes from Key Biscayne Beaches or South Beach.
Pricing for rentals in that area vary according to the size or type of property. Still a $1000 a month will get you a nice 1/1.
Call me for more infomation or visit my site at

Miami is the attraction to all levels of tourist because our warm weather all year long. We have major sport events (NFL, NBA, NASCAR, etc), music concerts, boat shows, car shows, food shows, festivals, cruises, hotels on the beaches... etc. Sometimes Miami residents are unaware of these great things happening.

Hi There,
I found two sets of stats:

One is what you will find here on the Trulia website

The other is from Metro Dade County.
I am sure more current stats are available as they should have just been published.

Unfortunately, when this data is disbursed it is not given by zip but rather by city or municipality which in many cases encompasses more than one zip code.

For example, both zips you are referring to are in the City of Miami. One is Brickell Proper (33131) and the other is Brickell west going beyond i-95. While they both have overlap in building types where the zip codes meet so to speak... There is a difference in value of properties, transience, size of properties, years held and income levels as you move west.

As to what happens after 4:30, I would direct you to the City of Miami Police dept & their public information division or Ombudsman to help with that question as it would go beyond what you would find in published reports. That website would be
But again, you will need to speak to someone for granular data or find a pay service.

I am guessing this is for a commercial space with some sort of social use IE: bar, club, restaurant, etc...?

Feel free to correct me or reach out if there is something more specific you might have in mind.

Beware of annonymus complaints like this by people who most likely are mad because they towed his/her car, and try to vent their frustation by smearing the building with petty charges like this.
This building is well maintained, but some people want the 'liberty' to do whatever they want, and that's how condos go to hell and turn into a 'dump' for real.

Carlos Ruiz De Quevedo answered:
Besides selling real estate I own rental properties. Fortunately I've had very few problems with tenants. However, I spend a good deal of time trying to find the right tenant. The hardest job for a landlord is getting the right tenant. If you do that task right, the rest is easy.

Develop a criteria of the tenant you want and stick to it. Also check their background carefully. Besides checking credit report and criminal records also find out if they have been evicted before. Call previous landlords and find out if they were good tenants. If you do your homework finding the tenant, the rest is relatively easy. By the same token if you come across a bad tenant, get rid of them quickly. The situation does not improve with time.

Bettina Robson answered:
Hi Charlene, Good question. It shows you are thinking with a business head. PA means Professional Association and means that you have filed for Sub S Corporation status. I am not an attorney or CPA. When I became a PA I did so on the advice of my CPA.That advice was that if you are making over $50,000 annually you should consider this status. There is a tax benefit. Everyone's situation is different. So I advise you check with an accountant. If you are short on cash, H&R Block is pretty reasonable to start out. Check with your broker on who they use. Every agent needs a good tax advisor. By the way. Are you working yet? I am looking for an agent. Click on my info and send me an email. ... more

Your accountant should tell you. You can set it up many ways. The PA is done at a low cost and it will help you write off expenses. Do it now before you get busy.
