The average sold price per square foot in Miami Shores in March for homes not on the water was $230, compared to $254 in February, $270 in january and 2016’s average of $278. Now please don’t misconstrue this to mean that the market is going down. Remember you need to look at at least 6 months of stats for numbers to really make sense – monthly fluctuations are expected and March saw a high number of unusually low sales.
There were 2 waterfront homes sold in March and these also do not represent the waterfront market. One is located on the Biscayne Boulevard bridge and the other at the end of the 104th Street canal with fixed bridge and a not so desirable location. Both of these homes were on the market for years and averaging $294/SF, almost the dry lot average!!
Positive markers to pay attention to are the decrease in inventory and increase in number of homes sold. This is textbook for a slowing real estate market that remains a seller’s market since there’s more demand than supply. We will certainly keep an eye out for changes but bottom line is that Miami Shores remains strong.
If you are a seller, expect more time on the market. If you are a buyer, don’t expect ridiculous price adjustments, be reasonable!
