An estimated 329,717 new residents packed their bags and made Florida their forever home between April 2020 and April 2021, according to state figures.

But in Miami, those newcomers are demanding permanent family digs rather than beachfront vacation condos — which is sending prices in suburban neighborhoods soaring.

That’s not an issue for those lucky few who arrive absolutely loaded.

They’re shopping for spreads like 8 Star Island: a nine-bedroom, 11-bathroom mansion on 2 acres of land spread across one of Miami’s most coveted cays. It hit the market this August with an astounding $80 million ask — making it the priciest listing in town.

For that kind of cash you get 20,000 square feet of fun with views of the Magic City skyline, an oval pool and one of Miami’s most in-demand amenities: a huge private dock. Elizabeth Lima of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices has the listing.

The second most expensive listing on the mad Miami market is 41 Arvida Parkway, in the tony Gables Estates community.

For $54.9 million you could frolic on a V-shaped plot that opens onto 574 feet of water frontage. Designed by Ramon Pacheco, it has eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and 18,963 square feet of zen-like interiors, including serene white surfaces juxtaposed with rich woods, walls of glass and a grand, floating staircase.

Outside there’s a one-of-a-kind mosaic infinity pool, a five-car garage, a 140-foot boat dock (with plenty of room to park your 200-foot mega yacht) and even a captain’s quarters.

Jill Hertzberg and Judy Zeder of the Jills Zeder Group are representing the seller.

“The lure is spacious backyards and endless outdoor living possibilities with pools, tennis, summer kitchens and even space for a putting green,” notes Zeder. “Add to that the space for home offices, state-of-the-art-gyms, libraries, game rooms and art areas, and you have the perfect property suited for pandemic and post-pandemic living.”

Meanwhile, up in Golden Beach, where the high-rise hotels of Sunny Isles give way to sprawling homes, a pre-construction opportunity will set you back slightly less — just $54.5 million.

The site at 255 Ocean Boulevard is currently a 28,400-square-foot sand lot, but SDH Studio Architecture + Design and TREO Construction have plans to deliver an 18,500-square-foot, nine-bedroom, 12-and-a-half-bathroom mansion there.

When built, the three-story home will feature a large rooftop deck with a hot tub.

Out back, you’ll be able to party al fresco in the gazebo, lap pool, summer kitchen, cabana bath and sun deck. In-laws on their way? Send them straight to the two-bedroom guest house. Did we mention the place comes with 100 feet of oceanfront?

Alan Eskenazi Bone and Alexander Goldstein of Miles Goldstein Real Estate have the listing.
