Miami Shores Opinion
We are telling our clients to expect a slow down in demand because of the current COVID-19 situation which is unprecedented and could bring so many surprises. But please note that home purchases are still happening and there will always be a housing demand. Expect a slow down but not a drastic drop in pricing. Please read our article on 3 reasons why this will not become a housing crisis.
March showed a balanced market with 7 months of inventory (same as previous month) and average discount of 6%. Miami Shores’ sweet spot are homes priced between $400,000 and $700,000 with an average price per square foot still above the $300 range.
We will need to keep a close eye on this graph that shows active vs. closed inventory. As you can see, active inventory dropped drastically, whereas sales only decreased a bit from last month. Demand will definitely affect all real estate markets but historically conservative markets like Miami Shores should remain strong.
Some interesting stats to note is that almost 28% of transactions are cash, 75% of owners use their property as primary homes and buyers are not just from the U.S. but from Argentina, Russia, France and Germany.
