Miami Shores Opinion
Last month’s sales panorama paints the perfect picture of what is going on in Miami Shores. Homes EAST of Biscayne Boulevard are selling above $400/SF – homes that need work are selling in the low $300/high $200’s per square foot. Location is key for determining price – main roads like North Miami Avenue, NE 2nd Avenue will dictate a major price reduction, no matter the condition. This is key when you are ready to buy or sell – there’s a reason REALTORS talk about “location, location, location”!
The average discount in Miami Shores remains low at 6% which means the difference between list and sales price. It’s interesting to note that inventory is beginning to increase, while demand has remained strong. This should not reflect a lowering in prices unless demand drops a great deal. We do not expect prices to be affected at all by the current pandemic situation since it is NOT a housing crisis – on the contrary, shelter is the most valuable asset we have at this time with “shelter in place” order by local authorities.
It is interesting to note that we have a 24.4% investor ownership in Miami Shores, which goes hand in hand with the 26% cash deals. Miami Shores remains a primary residence area with few second home and investor owners.
Please note that it is still a buyer’s market with about 8 months of inventory right now. Let’s see what next month brings and we do hope that you are safe at home.
Remember that serious buyers are out there right now and we are being more thorough about pre-qualifying anyone that wants to see properties for ours and your safety.
