Real Estate Trends

Harbor Island is one of the two islands that compose the North Bay Village community, and is the one nearest the mainland. The homes that can be found here are either condominium units in high-rise buildings or single family homes that can be rather large and stately. The cost of property here however is not as steep as some people may believe, with condominium units here having a median listing price of around $312,000 and single family homes having a median listing price of $350,000. Selling prices, depending on the size and quality of the home, is usually higher for condo units, and slightly lower for the single unit homes.

Safety is rather high in the area, although you cannot say that the neighborhood is totally crime free. When there are complaints filed in the community, it is usually about verbal disturbances and disputes, or the sighting of unfamiliar and suspicious individuals. This means that the area is general safe, with little to no problems regarding property safety and security.

The island is situated in an area that makes it easy to explore the great metropolis that is Miami, since you can go to Miami Beach easily via one end and to the mainland and what it has to offer by the other end. In short, this island not only gives residents the best of what the bay has to offer, but also gives them the best of what Miami has to offer.
