Comparing Fisher Island Condos with other luxury condo markets in Miami
Since these Fisher Island condos are high-end luxury condos in a solely luxury market we decided to compare the Fisher Island Condos with luxury condos in South of Fifth and Key Biscayne.
Key Biscayne is an island similar to Fisher Island with high-end real estate and self sufficiency. Can you completely compare Key Biscayne to Fisher Island? No, because you don’t need an invitation to enter the island and the real estate options are more diverse with houses and condos catering to a broader variety of people. Key Biscayne, specifically The Grand Bay, is the closest comparison we can get to the security levels and exclusivity of Fisher Island.
