Miami Shores Real Estate Market Report for 2022

An abrupt change to Miami Shores market has everyone a bit confused.  Going from multiple offers and bidding wars where houses would sell in just hours, so homes sitting on the market without offers!!  Wowsa!  But prices are surprisingly still increasing, so what in the world is going on?

It all started with the increase in mortgage rates, going from the 2’s% to almost 7% is a lot of fun, said no one ever!!  Those buyers that had been frustrated, looking for months and getting beaten by multiple offers dozens of times, just gave up!! In addition to being able to afford a lot less house now.   Some think that seller’s should reduce prices so they can’t afford the same price range, but that’s not happening.   Although inventory is increasing a bit, because demand has decreased, prices are staying strong and it’s because there’s still low inventory.

Is there a correction in the future?  My answer is a clear yes but we need to define “correction”.  A real estate correction is a minor drop in the market as opposed to a market crash which is what most buyers are hoping for.  Logic tells you that if demand drops and inventory increases, there’s bound to be a correction – but this will depend on mortgage rates.

Miami REALTOR’s Chief economist reports that,

30-Year Mortgage Rate Drops for Fifth Consecutive Week to 6.31% Resulting in More Mortgage Applications. The sustained decline in the 30-year mortgage rate is starting to revive homebuying. Moreover, South Florida continues to attract people from high cost and high tax markets like New York and California. About 1 in 3 people who moved to Miami Dade County, Broward, Palm Beach and Martin County, and who exchanged their out-of-state licenses for a Florida license in 2021 came from California or New York, according to Florida Highway and Safety Motor Vehicles data compiled by Florida REALTORS®. 

If mortgage rates continue to drop, demand will increase and there goes your correction.  So hang on! This will be a bumpy ride. But the data does not lie, the fact that median price continues to rise as does average price per square foot, tell us that Miami Shores will remain as strong as ever!

Miami Shores Homes – Price per Square Foot

For those saying that 2022 was not as good at 2021, look at these numbers.  The increase in price/sq.ft. from 2020 to 2021 was $93 and the increase from 2021 to 2022 was $158 !! Any questions on appreciation?

Year Price per SF
2022 $589/SF
2021 $431/SF
2020 $338/SF
2019 $324/SF
2018 $317/SF
2017 $293/SF
2016 $278/SF
2015 $264/SF
2014 $236/SF
2013 $215/SF
2012 $181/SF
2011 $166/SF

We pulled the average price since October in the Shores and it was at $633 per sq.ft. So yes, many are confused because they expect a crash or major correction, but we are not seeing any of that.  We are however, seeing sellers that are more flexible with terms.  Meaning longer inspection periods, maybe some concessions, longer closings but not, at any point, reducing their prices because buyers can afford less home.

Take a look at the benchmark for Miami Shores in the last 12 months:
