Upscale Cities to Live in South Florida


There is no denying that Florida is considered one of the most beautiful and desirable places to live in the world. There is something for everyone here. If you are looking for an upscale property and a high standard of living, there are plenty of communities that will make perfect sense for you. So, let’s take a look at them in more detail below. 

Of course, it is impossible to get bored in Miami, and this is an obvious place to begin. From the South Beach area to the Art Deco buildings across Ocean Drive, there is a lot to offer here. This also means that the properties are more expensive and also a lot more desirable as well. 

Aside from this, there are plenty of other areas that can give you that luxurious and upscale living you crave. This includes Lake Butler, Pinecrest, Surfside, Key Biscayne, Bal Harbour, and Palm Beach.

The average price of a property in Palm Beach is $3,308,022, which makes it the most expensive place to live in Florida. In exchange for your money, you are going to get to enjoy an active lifestyle in a pleasant neighbourhood that has plenty of entertainment options. If that was not enough, the job market and economy are strong here, as is the quality of education. You can also enjoy little to no taxes if you do decide to call this part of Florida your home, so it is not hard to see why it appeals to so many people

Steps to take before buying your upscale Florida home - If you are getting ready to buy a property, whether it is your first house or not, there are some key things you need to do beforehand. This includes the following:
  • Put together a financial plan – One of the biggest mistakes people make when buying a home is underestimating the costs that are associated with it. This is why you need to take the time to put a careful financial plan together, which outlines each and every cost that is associated with the purchasing process.
  • Invest in a property inspection – Before you sign on the dotted line, it is so important to get a professional property inspection carried out. A lot of people assume that hiring a home inspector is an unnecessary expense, but this is most certainly not the case. A lot of issues are not always visible to the untrained eye. Getting an inspection now can save you a lot of money in the long run. You may even be able to knock down the price if the inspector does come across any issues.
  • Know your credit score – Before you even think about buying a property, you need to know your credit score. Nowadays, it is easy to find out your credit score and look at your report. You can do this online within a matter of seconds. Most services today also show you details regarding the negative and positive factors of your report. For example, if you have recently opened a number of new credit accounts in the past few months, they will show on your report for six months. It’s advisable to wait for this to clear before you proceed with property shopping.
  • Imagine yourself in the home – When shopping for a new home, you need to imagine yourself in it. Often, we end up buying a property because it looks amazing and we have fallen in love with the character of it. However, once we move in we find that there is not enough space or that the property does not accommodate our needs. You can prevent all of this by imagining yourself in the property to begin with.
  • Verify all of the details in the property listing – Don’t take the property listing as gospel. Sometimes information has been mixed up or the estate agent will not have all of the facts. Perhaps the listing is old and hasn’t been updated? No matter what applies, make sure you verify all of the details.
  • Know what your want – Last but not least, before you start looking for the perfect property for you, make a list of everything you want from your new home. You can then rule out anything that doesn’t satisfy your requirements.

Now you know all of the things you need to do before you purchase a property. If you follow the steps mentioned above, you can be sure that the whole process goes as smoothly as possible.
