The wife and I are a childless couple moved to the south Florida area from the Alpharetta /Milton Georgia area "loved it" miss our home a lot sometimes. but the wife's career led us here. we have been renters for three years our first was in the Palm Beach Gardens/ Marlwood in PGA national, then we moved to the wellington area …whelp it looks like we are moving more south the wife has excepted a job near the Museum park area of Miami... we are excited about our next move , but we are terrified of having to live in or near the Miami area ..

we are accustom to safe living for the most part but cant seem to find that in or near Miami without being in a Brickell high-rise , but because of furniture and cars that's out of the question. we looked the Miramar area near 75 but everyone is telling us the traffic commute will be dreadful . we have a rental budget of 3k monthly LOL! but to get what we are use to will be around 5k...sigh.

we love the Aventura area but everything in our price range is a small condo or a one car 1000 square foot home. we have a realtor helping us again but I want to get a more well rounded opinion

HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Believe it or not despite many assertions on this forum, Miami does in fact have many safe habitable areas to live in that don't cost a fortune. You can find very nice two to three bedroom apartments/condos/townhouses (many that are gated) in Brickell, Coconut Grove, South Miami or Kendall with commutes ranging from 15 minutes to 45 minutes at rush hour. Here's some examples. https://www.zillow.com/homes/for_ren...xa_u4en5_crid/

If you need to have a feel similar to Alpharetta you'll have to consider places like Miramar or Pembroke Pines, which will entail a 45-60 minute commute on average most likely.
