South Florida in numbers: Stars need houses too



South Florida by the numbers is a web feature that catalogs the most remarkable, bizarre and surprising real estate statistics.

Crypto may be the hot new commodity in town, but South Florida real estate will always be the first choice for celebrities of all genres and generations. Actors, musicians and models are drawn to the Magic City and its charms as much as the rest of us, and chic hotel suites can only satisfy for so long. While Miami Beach’s North Bay Road and Palm Beach’s North End remain historic favorites, today’s luminaries also branch out into up-and-coming neighborhoods like Bay Point and Downtown Miami, underscoring the region’s development and maturity. We’re reaching for the stars – and their humble new whereabouts – this month in South Florida By The Numbers.
