Welcome to Miami’s Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount across various South Florida neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out!
Last week, we went home shopping with a $750,000 budget.
This week, we’re renters and can spend no more than $1,200 a month. Our search encompasses West Kendall, Little Havana, Edgewater, South Beach, and Normandy Isle, in order from south to north.
This 1,571-square-foot unit in West Kendall is by far the biggest on our list, doubling the square footage of the next largest residence. It has one bedroom, one bathroom, and stainless steel appliances.
This two-bed, one-bath is a block off Calle Ocho in the heart of Little Havana, offering 725 square feet.
The next three units are on the smaller end, with this studio sizing up at 475 square feet in the booming neighborhood of Edgewater. It features new appliances and a remodeled bathroom.
Here’s a centrally-located studio in South Beach with just over 400 square feet of living space.
Our final offering is a 550-square-foot studio with a modern interior. The renovated corner unit offers new appliances.
