Miami Shores Real Estate Market Report for 2020

What a year 2020 was for Miami Shores Real Estate.  The Coronavirus proved to be pro single-family living and pushed a lot of people out of condos and into houses, Miami Shores being one of the hottest areas in South Florida.  With multiple offers and bidding wars, it was a good year for sellers and a frustrating move for buyers.  Price per square foot increased due to demand and little inventory and we foresee this trend continuing for a few more months until the market levels off.

We remind you that we publish monthly Miami Shores real estate market reports on the first week of each month. We have an amazing team of agents ready to help you with award-winning marketing and unparalleled data to help you maximize your buying/selling goals.

Our marketing is relevant and always have safety in mind.  Give us a call if you are thinking of buying or selling.

Miami Shores Homes – Price per Square Foot

Miami Shores continues to improve and it’s evident by looking at past years’ sales. Here are the average price per square foot of Miami Shores homes in the past 10 years.  Any questions on appreciation?

Year Price per SF
2020 $338/SF

Although you are seeing a conservative increase in average price per square foot, what you are not seeing is the disparity between move-in-ready homes and “average” homes.  To give you an idea of the changes in the last semester of the year, the average price was $381!!  That’s a $43 difference between 12 month and 6 month stats – and remember that average means exactly that – an average home that needs work.

Take a look at the benchmark for the city for the last 12 months:

The average closed price was at $687,000 and we are now in a seller’s market with 4 months of inventory.  Here’s what’s interesting about the micro stats:
