On May 14, 1926 this little urban community of 4.2 mile radius got chartered as a town.Native Americans used to call that area “Opa-tisha-wocka-locka” so we got the shortened version. Census of 2015 show 15,867. Zip 33054.
Theres an Opa-Locka airport that also has an Executive aiport section with Fontainebleau Aviation .
The whole city was developed based on the Arabian nights theme, by Glenn Curtiss and architect Bernhardt Muller in the Moorish style.There were 105 buildings erected out of which 20 at this time are on the National Register of Historic Places.
At this time there are only 17 single family residences for this town on the official database from $100,000 4/2 1532 sq ft living space to a whopping $250,000 tag for a 2631 sq ft 6/5 which is completely remodeled offering. This little town is super scarce on condos with only five listings on MLX from bank owned 3/2 with 1056 sq ft living space for $79,900 to 3/2 1380 sq ft townhome for $180,000 in gated community.
This little town is super unique for those minarets and domes and our investors are glad to snap great deals that pop on the www.cashflowinmiami.com that carry great value for buy and holds.
