Airbnb rental property investments are a hot topic all around the U.S, but it is even more relevant in Miami and Miami Beach for a number of reasons. First, given the constant growth of the Miami area, many see Airbnb condo investments as a way to participate in the growth of Miami by creating cash flow while holding onto a property that is likely to continue increasing in value. Second, given the cultural benefits, quality restaurants and nightlife, and year-round warm weather, everyone wants to have a pie de terre here to come at will. Buying into an Airbnb-approved condo that allows daily rentals allows those folks to subsidize their amazing Miami lifestyle. They get the best of all worlds: enjoy Miami and Miami Beach when they want, and make an income when they are away.

Can You Airbnb a Condo?

The short answer is, yes, you can buy a condo and Airbnb it. But you need to understand a few key points, starting with whether the condo allows short-term rentals or not. The last thing you want to do is to buy the perfect condo but then realize it doesn’t officially allow Airbnb rentals, even though some other owners are doing it. Working with a real estate professional that knows how to pull up the condo short term rental rules of the building or looking them up yourselves in the condo docs and condo rules and regulations is key.

Quick Tips:

#1. Condo buildings that allow Airbnb (meaning daily or weekly rentals) have different financing rules than typical condos. Use our guide to how to finance a short-term or vacation rental to make sure you understand your financing options.

#2. Condo-hotels can be a great option to use for Airbnb rentals, since they have flexible rental rules. But Condo-hotels require special financing rules too and have their own rules if you want to manage your condo-hotel unit through Airbnb instead of the hotel’s management program. Use our guide to buy a condo-hotel in Miami to help you navigate that option.

Airbnb Approved Condo Buildings

Here is a list of all the buildings that allow daily rentals or there are a solid number of owners that are listing and renting their condo units via airbnb. It is still important to verify with the association whether airbnb rentals are allowed per the condo docs. There are occasions where the management may be allowing the airbnb rentals at the moment even though the building is not officially approved for daily rentals. Do your due diligence, or reach out to us to help you with your condo search and to help you verify the condo’s rules and regulations.

Urban Food Halls a Big Craze in Miami, and We Bet You Haven't Been to All of Them
Lifestyle Urban Food Halls a Big Craze in Miami, and We Bet You Haven't Been to All of Them
Miami is officially on board the latest urban food hall train, with new urban food halls sprouting up everywhere. These sites are inspired in European marketplaces and are known for hosting a wide variety of food vendors, restaurant kiosks, and marketplaces in a single location, often spanning thousands of square feet. Several new urban food halls have cropped up across Miami in the last couple of years, providing accessible and varied eateries ranging from top-tier restaurants to casual street food. Several areas are now blessed with urban food halls, including the novel Brickell City Center, the luxe Design District, and the trendy art-lined streets of Wynwood. Miami Beach will also see the opening of one or more food halls in the coming months. Below we’ve assembled a list of Miami’s most popular urban food halls, but bear in mind that there will soon be a lot more!

Miami Real Estate Market Forecast 2020 & State of the Market in 2019
Real Estate News Miami Real Estate Market Forecast 2020 & State of the Market in 2019
The Miami real estate market has been moving in interesting ways over the past few years. Some believe the market is bottoming out after a few years of softness, others think that we are set for another condo bust. Let’s take a look at the Miami market landscape and see where things may go from here. Let’s start with a brief history... The market crashed in 2008 along with the rest of the nation, and then from 2010-2015 the Miami market had a huge run-up in prices to the point that pretty much everyone who invested around 2010 made very significant profits. After the dollar strengthened in 2014, the very hot real estate market here in Miami started softening, as the Europeans and Latin American countries lost much of their purchasing power in the exchange rates (on the other hand, those who already had their money here made a killing). Since 2015-2016, the condo prices have gone sideways and down as inventory has increased, creating some pain for sellers and a great opportunity...
Top Miami Beach Neighborhoods Ranked for Public Transportation
Lifestyle Top Miami Beach Neighborhoods Ranked for Public Transportation
The reality is that for the typical visitor or resident of Miami Beach, they come to walk, bike, skateboard, and scooter around town, but it’s still important to know you public transit options. Getting around any city becomes that much easier when you have multiple public transportation options at your disposal. Miami, for one, has an intricate public transportation system that includes options like the Metrobus, Metrorail, Metromover, Tri-rail and the Trolley. In this blog, we’ve ranked the top Miami Beach neighborhoods on the basis of their ease of access to public transit systems, making it easier for tourists and locals to know how to cruise this coastal city. The reason you won’t see a super high score for any of these neighborhoods is because the only public transportation options are street-based (trolley and bus) without dedicated or preferred lanes as opposed to any public-transit-only lanes or dedicated systems like rail. Plus, the only public transit in and out of the...
