Lots of strange inventory finally selling in Miami Shores this past month, including unusual distressed movement.  Please don’t interpret this to mean that you can find steals in Miami Shores because those days are long gone, it means that old, difficult inventory has finally been released from the jaws of banks and attorneys.  What you should notice is those homes selling above asking price.  We are seeing multiple offer scenarios where buyers are willing to pay above appraisal value and drop financing contingencies.  If you are having a difficult time getting offers denied, make sure you are working with a Realtor that can strategize for you and will give you the right advice.

* 798 NE 98 St– Miami Shores Home by recreation fields.  Large 3,236 sq ft home built in 1955 with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 2-car garage, sitting on a big, 11,300 sf lot.  This home is priced at $286/sf which is a great price for location and condition of the home.  Listing price is $925,000 and has been on the market since August 16th, 2013.
