    Home Prices in Miami

     

    Whenever you are moving abroad, the main question is “Where can I afford to live?” and “Will my budget allow me to live in the area of my choice?”. In the section below we show you the average rental prices and average sales prices for homes and condos in each Miami area.

    Rental Prices in Miami

    Most people who relocate to Miami start with renting a home for one year to get to know the area better and to make sure Miami is the place they would like to settle for a longer time. In the tables below we are providing you with the average rental prices for condos and single family homes (classified per size). Please note this is an indication of what to expect in each area. The Miami rental property of your dreams might differ from the average prices listed below.

    The Best Schools in Miami – Private and Public Schools

     

    All parents want the best education for their children, but where do you begin your search for the best Miami Schools? It is hard enough to begin understanding the school systems in a foreign country, let alone to pick the best school for your children.

    TIP ⇒ Be aware that most Miami schools will require a January application in order to be accepted. Always ask your school of choice for their application date

    For many parents, choosing between the local public school, a charter school, or a private school can be a challenge by itself. Please see the link here below to read about the differences in these 3 types of schools.

    The difference between Miami Public District Schools, Public Charter Schools and Miami Private Schools

    Magnet Schools

    Parents in Miami can also opt for Magnet Schools/programs, which are free public elementary and secondary schools of choice that are operated by school districts or a consortium of districts. Magnet schools have a focused theme and aligned curricula in Science, Technology, Engineering and so on and are typically more “hands on – minds on” and use an approach to learning that is inquiry or performance/project based. They use state, district, or Common Core standards in all subject areas; however, they are taught within the overall theme of the school. Read more about Magnet Schools/programs  and their benefits.

    Auto Needs

     

    Prior to relocation, transportation has been ranked among the lowest on an Expat’s priority list. However, it quickly jumps to the top of the list after relocation since many will need a vehicle. Foreign nationals are unaware of the challenges they will face when obtaining a vehicle including their lack of local credit history, licensing and registration requirements.
