Your Questions About Affordable Apartments In Broward County

Depends on plenty of factors: price range, desired commute time, proximity to the beach or other hot spots, culture make-up of the community, etc… I’ll try to give you a “quick” break down. First and foremost, any decent apt complex offers at a bare minimum a pool, tennis courts and most places are gated/guarded. So don’t let anyone trick you into paying more for these amenities. Commute is bad in most directions: I-95 southbound, Palmetto Expwy East and South bound, Dolphin Expwy East bound, Airport Expwy West Bound. Traffic is a mess, so be prepared. Miami-Dade County is divided into 4 sections NW/SW along Flagler and NE/SE along Miami Ave. These dividing points are very close to downtown so much of the county is NW or SW. The safer neighborhoods in NW = Doral, Miami Lakes, Certain Parts of Miami Gardens and Northern sections of Hialeah. In SW = Kendall, Kendale Lakes, the Hammocks, Pinecrest, and Westchester. In NE = Aventura, North part of North Miami Beach, Miami Shores and Biscayne Park. In SE = The Roads and Brickell. Some of the more pricier neighborhoods are Coral Gables, Coconut Grove (which has some seedy sections so be careful), Brickell, most things on Miami Beach, and Bal Harbor. If you absolutely have to live near the water then try North Beach. It’s a modest community and Sunny Isles isn’t as expensive as Bal harbor. If you don’t mind the commute, you might consider living in Broward county. Some good, affordable communities include Miramar, Pembroke Pines, and maybe Hallandale Beach. These places are on the border with Miami Dade County and aren’t too far north. There are clubs and shopping places all over and the traffic isn’t really bad at night, so you can live (inland) but still enjoy the concentration of hot spots on Miami Beach or Downtown. To be off the safe side, don’t live any place farther south than Cutler Ridge unless you have a family and want a big house. Apartments down there are not worth it. Good luck!
