Living in Sunset, Florida: Miami Neighborhood Guide

Sunset, Florida, is a quiet, tree-lined area near South Miami stocked with lovely homes, lush greenery and seamless access to Miami’s most popular neighborhoods.

Situated near popular and affluent areas like Coral Gables and Coconut Grove, Sunset offers the same caliber of affluence in a smaller and a bit more suburban container. The neighborhood is minutes away from Miami attractions such as the University of Miami, Dadeland Mall and Sunset Place. With a population of just over 17,000, there are over 5,600 housing units within the 3.5 square mile neighborhood, giving interested buyers plenty of options.

Unlike other areas in Miami-Dade, Sunset offers a variety of more affordable homes with large front and backyards, lush greenery, mango trees and avocado groves. There are a handful of small and large apartment buildings, too. Much of Sunset’s real estate was built in the 1950s and ’60s and some homes have been updated to reflect minimalist styles. Others, however, maintain old school glamour through mild renovations and upgrades. Homebuyers looking to remodel a property to fit their taste can take advantage of some of the fixer-uppers in the neighborhood.

The average sales price for a home in Sunset is $250,325, which measures out to about $183 per square foot. While this may add a layer of exclusivity, there are numerous homes priced below the neighborhood average. Compared to some nearby pricier neighborhoods in midland Miami like Coconut Grove, Sunset’s home stock is priced significantly lower while offering similar amenities.

The Lifestyle

One of Sunset’s principal draws is its close proximity to downtown Miami and Miami Beach while also serving as a quaint and peaceful residential sanctuary for families. For buyers, Sunset is a great choice for those with careers and lives based in the southwest Miami area including neighborhoods like Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Pinecrest, Brickell and downtown Miami. The neighborhood is particularly friendly to new and growing families due to its assortment of schools, nearby parks and green spaces and access to major roadways, including U.S. 1 and the Turnpike.

Getting Around Town

Sunset is bordered by major highways and thoroughfares, it’s nice to have a car when living in Sunset. While there is public transportation, with bus routes running through the suburban area, it may double or triple your time spent en route. With Miami’s infamous heat and rain storms, walking across Sunset isn’t always feasible, and not having a car might hinder your ability to explore other nearby South Miami neighborhoods.

With dozens of shops, restaurants and entertainment options just minutes away, Sunset provides residents with real estate comparable to a suburban neighborhood alongside attractions common in major metro hubs. It’s one of the few neighborhoods in Miami where residents don’t have to choose between the two.
