Here are a few good tips:
1. Make sure you have an assigned parking space. (your vehicle will get destroyed parking on the street in Miami Beach)
2. Go with renters insurance (it is very inexpensive and worth it in case of emergencies)
3. Work with a Realtor- as a renter, any and all fees are paid by the unit owner- so the expertise comes at no cost to you.
4. Do your research on the areas within Miami Beach so you get exactly what you are looking for.... OCean Drive is very different to live than West Ave. as well as South Point, Flamingo Park and Millionaires Row. They all have advantages and disadvantages based on your lifestyle and an open conversation with your realtor will make sure you end up in the right place!
