Miami Shores Opinion

The word in the street is that 2019 will be a difficult year for real estate.  Things are changing, technology and business models are affecting real estate and real estate markets are going through a correction period.  My opinion is different because my analysis is always hyper local.  If you grab all of Miami-Dade County, the numbers can be scary, but if you study different neighborhoods and look at historical factors that influence the market, then the results make a lot more sense.

I prepare Miami Shores real estate market reports on the first week of each month.  I urge you to sign up to these reports or to come back and visit our website to read the findings.  I provide average price per square foot statistics so you can see the monthly fluctuation of these numbers but always paying attention that when you are ready to buy or sell, it’s smart to look at 6-12 month periods to get a real idea of how the market it behaving.

January showed a slight increase from 2018’s average, but that also has to do with the type of sold inventory – this number will always fluctuate.  Miami Shores has always been a stable market and we have seen conservative annual increases in pricing.  What makes the market seem unstable are the grossly overpriced homes currently on the market.  If the average is a bit above $317 and highest sales appear in the low $400/SF, the homes currently listed in the $600/SF range will give you a false sense of instability.

Please do your homework and understand that even if you have the best and most amazing house in the neighborhood, no smart buyer will be willing to dish out crazy amounts of money above market in a buyer’s market.  If you overbuilt and you need to sell, you may be able to get a bit more than “regular” homes, but don’t expect to get Venetian Island pricing for a Miami Shores home <<reality check!
