The average price per square foot in Miami Shores in March was $308 compared to $319 in February, $249 in January and  2015’s average of $264. It’s important to note that although price per square foot will fluctuate a bit from month to month, it’s key to grab 6 months to one year averages to get a true idea of how the market is behaving.  Homes selling at $300/SF and above, are completely updated – prices under the $264/SF average need work.  If you are a buyer, don’t expect remodeled homes under the $250/SF range … those homes will need work! We are officially in a correcting market and many ask us if prices will drop.  Our answer for Miami Shores is simple:  increases have been conservative and there will be evidence of prices stabilizing but never a drastic drop.  We are, however, seeing an increase in inventory and houses are sitting on the market for longer periods. Did you know you can search your home’s property records and permit history on-line?  By visiting, under building department and then property records – you will find all permits and plans available for your property.  This is key if you want to know how old your roof is or when major improvements were completed in your home.  Educate yourself about your property, this will help you price it when you are ready to sell.  (Responding “newer” about the age of your air conditioning is not acceptable to today’s buyers) Please work with agents that can help you stay on top of Miami Shores Real Estate Market Trends and your frustrations will be kept to a minimum and you will not waste time looking at properties that don’t match your search criteria.  If all else fails, call the Miamism Sales Team and we will be glad to assist you.
