Holy Miami River. This $290,000 apartment located right on the water could have no other amenities, and we'd still be interested in purchasing it. Luckily, this 825-square-foot space also has a fabulous bedroom with a view, one and a half bathrooms and an updated stainless steel kitchen to its name. We're sold. I mean, think of the sunsets! We're very, very sold.
