Looking for access to ALL Miami real estate inventory?
Homestead real estate is located very near the southernmost point of the mainland of Florida, just before enterting the Florida Keys archipelago. The city is one of the oldest incorporated cities in Miami-Dade County, second only to the city of Miami itself. Its location, 35 miles south of Miami and 25 miles north of Key Largo, makes it the perfect stepping stone between Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties. This is, in fact, the reason for its inception in 1913. When Henry Flagler decided to extend his railroad into the Florida Keys and build the Overseas Railroad, the only road into the area was called the 'Homesteaders Trail,' and was in fact the area that would later take its name from it and become the city of Homestead. When construction on the railroad was complete, many of the workers decided to settle near the Homesteaders Trail and founded the city of Homestead.
