Why Does Key Biscayne Sell For A Premium?

September 24th, 2013 Written By Dominique Duque

Key Biscayne

Everyone knows that Key Biscayne sells for a premium, but some people may wonder why the non-waterfront homes sell for twice as much as those in nearby communities.  Today I am comparing Key Biscayne to Pinecrest because they share many traits that are attractive to buyers: excellent schools, a sense of community and gorgeous public spaces.  The average sale price for a single family, non-waterfront home on Key Biscayne is approximately $2,268,109 whereas a similar home in Pinecrest is just $1,130,614.  So why would someone pay twice the amount to live on Key Biscayne?

Here are a couple of things that make the Key Biscayne life so appealing to many:

  • When you live on Key Biscayne, the beach is your backyard.
  • Key Biscayne is minutes from downtown Miami and Brickell.
  • It is not everyday you see children arriving to school in golf carts. Because the community is so small and safe people have the convenience of being able to use golf carts as their form of transportation throughout the island.
  • Key Biscayne has one of the best community centers I have ever seen.   There are a wide range of activities available for all ages: domino games, tango classes, lunch with authors, Brazilian sculpting, Zumba, yoga, the list goes on and on.  For more information on the community centers current activity schedule click here.
  • Key Biscayne has been named one of the safest neighborhoods in America.
  • Key Biscayne has a variety of great restaurants.
  • Key Biscayne has great schools.  Key Biscayne’s K-8 public school is not only an ‘A’ school it is also the #1 K-8 school in the district and #12 in the state. The Island also offers great private schools like St. Christopher’s By The Sea which provides a great Montessori education for toddlers as young as 3 and up to 6th grade, St Agnes Academy who through great education and under the auspices of St. Agnes Parish and Archdiocese of Miami serves students from grades PreK-3 to 8th grade.

Key Biscayne is my life.  If you are interested in buying or selling on Key Biscayne, I would love the opportunity to work with you.  I can be reached anytime on my cell phone at 305-766-7666 or you can send me a message here.
