To think that the lowest priced Surfside home is above half a million dollars is impressive.  Here’s a neighborhood that suffered in the down market but not only did it recuperate, it has become one of the most popular residential areas in South Florida. So here’s the skinny about Surfside real estate – there is low inventory and high demand but the homes selling for top dollar are the ones with 4 bedrooms or more and the ones that are completely remodeled.  Buyers do not want to go through the hassle of remodeling.  This is crucial information for sellers because a little fixing up can come a long way. 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.
