Midtown continues to be hot and anything that comes on the market for under $200,000, sells in just days!  There are still a few distressed sales to be found, but that inventory is dwindling down.  Of the 20 properties listed for sale in the multiple listing service, only one is distressed (foreclosure) – that’s 5% of the total inventory!

What does this mean?  if you invested in Midtown, you should feel glad, because the investment will pay off.  If you live in Midtown now, just know that your residence will begin appreciating, which is a great feeling considering what other areas of Miami are still going through.

The median sale price in Midtown for the month of February was $307,000 with an average price per square foot of $214.9, which is a huge increase from the $161.4 figure we gave you in November of 2011.  Midtown Miami continues to give us a warm and fuzzy.

  1. That is great to see the distressed sales are diminishing, and we are seeing similar trends here. Also, once something is priced to sell, it does move quickly! Excellent market update!
