Looking to rent for $2000 a month in Miami? Here's what to expect......

Updated: Jul 31, 2018

April/May 2018, $2000 rental units

With a $2000.00 budget and a fresh outlook on life you're looking for a taste of the high life in the Miami area. In this article I'm going to show you what other people were able to rent for $2000.00 and where in Miami you can still live the 2-ply lifestyle with a 1-ply budget!

Firstly, $2000 bucks is unfortunately not going to get you a single family house near Miami. That includes Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, Bal Harbour, Morningside, Coconut Grove and other more established areas, where you'd be looking well in excess of $4000+. If you have extremely low expectations there may be a handful of homes to choose from, but your best bet is going to be looking at the apartment/condo/townhouse market where you can still get some really good value. Each one of the units below rented for about $2000. Some are close to the beach, some are newer, some have really great amenities, and some seem to rent without having much going for them. It's all relative!

Miami Beach: The Flamingo 1 bedroom 1.5 bathroom, 1087 square feet

Miami Beach: (South of Fifth) Cosmopolitan, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 612 square feet

Bal Harbour: 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, 1400 square feet

Downtown: Mary Brickell Village 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 945 square feet

Downtown: Millecento 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 812 square feet

Downtown: Axis, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom

Downtown North: Vizcayne 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 806 square feet

Coral Gables: Keystone 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 900 square feet

This article strictly looks at what people were able to get for a specific price. There were over three hundred rental transactions at $2000 over the last 60 days in the general Miami area and this is a very small sample of whats out there. That said, its interesting to see how much variety is available at each price point and how different peoples tastes are. Thanks for reading!
