Miami Shores Opinion
Please don’t be alarmed for the drop in price per square foot. One month will not make a huge difference and it is key for you to look at 6 months of sales to make an educated analysis. What is important to note is that 6 out of the 18 sales last month were cash deals, that’s 33% of sales. For a neighborhood that is not used to seeing cash sales, we have been seeing a slight increase in cash deals.
What exactly do cash deals do to prices in neighborhoods, you may ask? These usually increase average pricing but this perspective can be skewed. Investors are usually cash buyers, but they like to buy properties under market value. An influx in cash deals can mean both increase or decrease in property values depending on investment capital coming into a neighborhood. We are seeing sellers wanting to market their properties to cash buyers if they are overpriced, have a special property or think they have a better chance of selling above market pricing. A foreign national buying with cash will do their homeworks and will pull comps, so consider your pricing and marketing strategy carefully.
For those of you who have mentioned that there’s a lot of inventory for sale in Miami Shores, it’s the complete opposite! Inventory is low – from 119 in May, then 109 in June and currently 99 homes for sale. Remember there are over 3,000 homes in Miami Shores and only 3% are for sale. This can be verified by our weekly real-time reports which indicate that the Market Action Index is currently at 31 which favor sellers.
The market continues to get hotter. More sales demand and fewer homes listed have contributed to a relatively long run of increasing prices.
