Known for its luxury and exclusivity, Bal Harbour remains one of the most sought-after neighborhoods on Miami Beach. Founded over 75 years ago by wealthy developer Robert C. Graham, the quaint suburb, once called Bay Harbour, has surpassed its founder’s exquisite dream and become a coveted enclave for prominent, wealthy Miamians. Here, you can enjoy exclusive beachfront living, the finest shopping, and outstanding gourmet restaurants amidst idyllic scenery. Art plays a prominent part in the local mindset and is worked into every facet of the city for residences to enjoy. Once a playground for the rich and famous, the village still attracts the brightest movers and shakers of South Florida.Greater Miami has proven to be a real estate hot spot in the wake of COVID-19 and associated repercussions. Residents from other states looking for better weather, relief from high taxes, and tropical living year-round see Miami as the logical answer. Florida’s lower overall taxes attract high earners wanting to escape crowded conditions in cities such as Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Houston, DC, and Philadelphia but not abandon a more sophisticated, urban lifestyle. Many view Miami as the perfect alternative location to costly tax areas. In Bal Harbour and neighboring Surfside, new home sales in the four-million-dollar range and higher, are now comprised of 50 percent out-of-state buyers. Celebrities including Pharrell Williams, Shakira, JLo, and Floyd Mayweather call this area home. Carl Icahn (Ichan Enterprises), Steve Hafner (Kayak), and Nick Huzar (OfferUp) have moved divisions or entire corporations to South Florida.
