    Default Cheap places to live near the beach

    Hi, I am looking into moving to Miami within the next year.

    I have some friends down there, and more moving down.

    I will probably relocate with my current job with Nordstrom and then look for a cocktailing/bartending/car sales position while I attend school at University of Miami for my MBA.

    My question is where is the best spot and CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP to live close to the beach? Also, I am looking for a job with a place like Tantra, Nikki Beach, or a night club on that level so that I can pay off tuition.

    Another thing, might sound trivial, but what is the best place to get car insurance down there...and you guessed it CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP...

    Any other advice would be great!

    Thanks you guys!

    Hi, Yeleezaveta, thanks for posting your question.

    "where is the best spot and CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP to live close to the beach?"
    I'm sorry to say, apartment rentals in South Beach seem to be getting more expensive. Another member here, Pancho, just rented a studio in South Beach for $800 a month. 2 years ago, the same studio would have cost $475.

    Some people may disagree with me, but I don't think you will save all that much if you live in a beach community farther north. There's less inventory in North Beach. Not to mention, if you're going to work at a South Beach hotsopt, you'll want to be able to bike to work.

    The good news, it's starting to become a buyers market.

    "Also, I am looking for a job with a place like Tantra, Nikki Beach, or a night club on that level so that I can pay off tuition."
    What time of year do you plan to move? It's easier to find a job in the service industry in October, November, and December.

    South Beach is a small town. It wouldn't be that hard to get to know all the people who do the hiring. After that, just be persistent, and use technology, try to get their email.

    Yeleezaveta, what is your rental budget?

    Nordstrom has stores down here. Why not keep your job with them? The South Beach lifestyle and those trendy bars may seem alluring but it doesn't seem like any of that mixes well with studying! I'm not saying it can't be done, but to save money, hassle, parking and traffic delays, I would stick close to campus and then just visit the beach on your leisure time.
