    Hey guys, hopefully you all can help. I am thinking of moving to Miami just to experience what Miami has to offer. I am a 38 yo single professional male. I will have two cars, including my Ferrari (F8) when it arrives next year. I’ve solely researched places using trulia/Zillow. I’ve been to south beach and downtown and liked it.

    My issue is I haven’t found anything that I feel can safely accommodate two cars, especially one being a Ferrari. Does anyone have personal experience or advice on
    1. which neighborhoods
    2. which condos/buildings
    3. if owning a Ferrari and parking it in a condo parking is even a good idea?
    Thanks

    Hi. Look for a two bedroom in the Asia building in Brickell Key. That’s the best building in the area l, with very high security standards and a place where your Ferrari will be in good company. Prices have come down a lot there lately so good timing.

    Mmyhorses: thank you for your recommendation, I’ll definitely look into it.

    I think you will love it. I was born and raised in Miami and could never move back there, but for your situation it will be a great experience.

    You're probably better off moving to someplace a bit further north, like Palm Beach County. Still plenty of Ferrari activity.

    I love Miami, I relocated to Florida & I'm living in Boca Raton now, its a great area part of Palm Beach County. Miami is great as well, you can definitely find a place to accommodate your cars! Theres one building in Sunny Isles approx. 30 Minutes from South Beach, Ocean front Condo building. You can take your cars up with you to your condo with the elevator. its known as " The Porsche Design Tower ". Such a cool building! I have a client I am working with right now relocating from NY. he has a few exotic cars and is considering purchasing in this building. If you'd like to discuss more, send me a message. I can definitely help you with your searches and share my thoughts.

    My company used to have an office in the Four Seasons building downtown and I can tell you that the residents floors of the parking garage were absolutely full of Ferraris and other exotics tucked up under car covers. I assumed that they were largely vacation homes for wealthy Latin American and other people, but it was quite a spectacle.

    As someone who lived in Miami for many years, I have two words of advice for you:

    LEARN SPANISH.

    In my opinion, Brickell is a very cool area, lots of modern concept buildings that went up. Only problem with Brickell is that there’s so many units for sale and it’s extremely over valued! Not to many units are selling in that area because of the over supply there is. Very unfortunate for the buyers who paid top dollar for their new construction units before they were built, and now can’t even sell them for the money they paid.

    Back in the day I used to rent a winter home in Delray Beach, FL and loved it! I wasn't too far from Boca and West Palm Beach however I never liked Miami, have you spent much time in Miami? If not rent a short term place for 3 months to try it out.

    Delray is a great area! Great idea to rent before purchasing.
