Keystone Point is a small subdivision within North Miami, prices vary greatly within its guard gated perimeter.  There is such a great discrepancy in pricing within Keystone that it is imperative that you work with an agent that knows the area well.  Prices vary due to the size and type of the canal, how far the home sits from ocean access, the architecture of the home and the obvious...updates. The average selling price per square foot for Keystone Point homes in July was $396 compared to June's average of $411.  There were no dry-lot homes sold in July and keep in mind that the average for the first half of the year was $438.00 July showed unusually low sales including a foreclosure, which is rare in today's market.  The highest price per square foot in Keystone Point was the bay front property at 12895 Biscayne Bay, selling at $692/SF.  This was an estate sale in need of remodeling.  To our surprise, the lowest selling home per square foot was not the foreclosure, but the home at 12904 Banyan Road that overpriced their home to begin with and had it on the market way too long - serves as food for thought when buyers ask "How long has the property been on the market?" Keystone continues to grow in popularity because of its location and affordability.  It’s become the place to buy for those wishing to upgrade their dry-lot homes to waterfront. Call us if you are thinking about buying or selling in Keystone – we’ll be happy to provide a no obligation consultation for your home.

Keystone Point House of The Month

The Miamism Sales Team recommends the Keystone Point home located at 13005 Biscayne Bay Drive.  This open bay home is the epitome of 1970's luxury with tons of gold details, marble and elaborate decor.  Great if you are into that, but if you are not, it has great bones and it's easy to clean up. It has 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, has over 7,000 sq.ft. of living space, sits on a 22,500 square foot lot with direct bay views!!  It has 150' of water frontage and that's where we say WOW! It is offered at $4,950,000 which is $678/sq.ft - unheard of for that size lot and views.  This is worth it even if you gut it out in its entirety, although the pool area and its landscaping is fantastic. 13005 Biscayne Bay Dr - keystone Point Please contact us for more information and we will be happy to arrange a showing appointment.
