Here is a quote of Alex Cohen, Lead Commercial Specialist at Core.

“Like many who have enjoyed vacationing in Miami, I was initially drawn to consider buying Miami Beach condominiums as investment about two and a half years ago. However, through assessing condo pricing and condo rents, I quickly discovered that likely returns would be 4% or less. Instead I chose to invest in a unique neighborhood just north of Miami’s hot “design district” called Buena Vista filled with modest single family homes built mostly in the 1930s and 1940s. In Buena Vista, I found and invested in homes that generate for me returns from year-round renters between 5.5 and 8 percent because they make 2-3 bedrooms homes on small lots accessible, particularly to millennial renters, at rents equivalent to what they would pay for a Miami Beach studio or small one bedroom apartment.”

I'm not sure about Miami, but if it's still actual for you go to the link below.

Welcome to Miami! (no pun intended). Probably best to start looking in June. Most landlords will opt for the offer with an immediate occupancy. But you also have to take into consideration the buildings approval times. Some buildings screening approvals can take up to 3-4 weeks. Although most are about 2 weeks. ... more

Yes, as long as 3 years have passed since the foreclosure then you can buy a home with as little as 3.5% down payment.

Alejandro Bendayan answered:
Some areas of Coconut Grove have private policy or security services like the Bonita Park area where roving guards police the area 24 hours a day. I've been renting a summer home in the area for the past 4 years and never had an issue with crime during that time. The rest of the year the property is also occupied by its owners and they have not had issues either since they bought the property. They are very happy with the security of the neighborhood. Checking with the local police department should be your next step if you wish to inquire about crime rates in the area. ... more

At the point of sounding mean, there is really not much around your budget for 2 bdrsm. Unless you change neighborhoods. LIttle Haiti is a better fit for that budget.
