Miami Shores Opinion

I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe 2018 is almost over! The market continues to show signs that favor buyers but in a conservative way, if that makes any sense.  Buyers have the ability to negotiate a bit, but within reason!! This doesn’t mean houses are selling under market value, it just means that there’s more of a chance of 2 parties negotiating an end price that makes sense.  Unless your house is a major fixer upper and sits in a horrible location (train tracks, main road, etc), expect it to sell at market pricing.  

What’s important to understand is that pricing in areas like Miami Shores do not drop, they go up and reach a plateau, but they don’t decrease.  This makes Miami Shores a sound investment, no matter the price range. It’s important to know the areas and pockets that sell for more, it’s also important to be realistic about the product you are buying or selling, which includes condition and future resale.

If you do have a special product, usually architecturally speaking, then it’s a market to be patient, since buyers do know they have the upper hand.  We specialize in marketing architectural and historic properties, so we are happy to discuss further with you if this is your current situation.

The Market Action Index decreased yet again to 28, keep in mind that an index above 30 implies Seller’s Market conditions. Below 30, conditions favor the buyer.

The Market Action Index has been trending lower for several weeks while prices have remained relatively stable. If inventory continues to grow relative to demand however, it is likely that we will see downward pressure on pricing.
