The average selling price per square foot for Surfside homes not in the water in March was $372 compared to $338 in February, $390 in January’s and 2015’s average of $350. As I’ve explained many times before, monthly averages will fluctuate and it’s important to look at 6 months or more worth of figures.  It’s the reason we continue to share 2015’s average of $350. There has been only 1 waterfront sale in Surfside this year and it’s the property listed above.  There were 11 waterfront homes sold in Surfside in 2015 and that average was $634/SF.  The highest was $878/SF for the gorgeous, modern construction at 1236 Biscaya Dr.  (That price is less expensive than bay front homes in Miami Shores – remember our record sale in December of 2014?) I still look at the least expensive home in Surfside, priced at almost $600,000, and remember how just a few short years ago, you could buy homes in Surfside for the $200,000’s.  That itself is a representation of a very strong market. For a no obligation consultation, not only of price, but condition of your home, please contact us.  Remember I’m an architect and can tell you easy fixes to get the most return on your investment.
