Miami Shores Real Estate Market Report for 2015

How is the Miami Shores Market?  Here’s a question we get on a regular basis but somehow, without even having a pulse on the market, we are seeing people getting an uneasy feeling about a “collapse” or the end of a “high market”.  The good news is that you can rest assured that our market continues to appreciate. Although it is normal to follow the overall sentiment the media puts out about another market bubble and the downfall of the South Florida real estate market, it is crucial for you to realize the real estate is LOCAL in nature.  You cannot grab all of Miami-Dade County Stats and generalize about your own neighborhood — unless you want to drive yourself crazy, that is. Miami-Dade is HUGE and real estate reports will include stats from the most affluent, multi-million properties in Miami Beach, to impoverished area on the West side of Miami.  If you want to know how your market is doing, you need to compare Apples to Apples and rely on your favorite real estate professional to keep you informed. With that said, we prepare monthly real estate market reports for several areas around Miami – Miami Shores Real Estate Stats being one of them — here’s the Miami Shores Real Estate Market Report for 2015.
