I'm considering moving to the miami area. Are there areas in homestead or florida city that are almost semi rural. I want an area where you can have birds and other pets. I hear that a lot of the housing there is associations or subdivisions. Do these subdivisions have restrictions against pets?

If you want a rural area in Miami-Dade you need to look at place in the SW section, west of Krome Avenue. Miami-dade county does have a 4 dog max for a single family dwelling. As far a subdivisions, it depends on the subdivision and its rules.

The area you are looking for is called the "Redland." It encompasses much of South and Southwest Miami Dade County.

First of all, expect to pay a lot of money for some run-down shack with room around it. All developments since the 80's have been crammed in and on less than 1/2 acre lots. often a lot less. Before 1950 all of Dade county was rural outside of city limits. When snowbirds and refugees flooded south Florida, rural land became increasingly endangered and scarce. The "rural" areas include massively overpriced "horse country" a collection of mega mansions and third world poverty at high prices. It is found between 137Ave 117ave and north to Bird road and south to Sunset drive. The lion's share of rural is south of Kendall going diagonally from Krome ave to US-1 about 2 miles south of cutler ridge mall. You will find pockets of development everywhere, and then estate type homes and run-down shacks. Do not let the shabby appearance fool you, those dumps are very, very expensive. In south Florida acerage is king, and no matter how bad the neighborhood nearby gets, the "rural" areas remain overpriced. It all ends at the western levy, so much of Miami-Dade county remains undevelopable government owned wetland.

I lived in the area of the Redland in a great house on an acre, that I miss very much.
The neighborhood was great and the folks wonderful.
There are many homes and areas like that in the Redlands.
It is worth checking out.
