Miami Shores Opinion

The year is almost over and we’ll be producing an annual market review for Miami Shores on the first week of January.  Although 2020 is almost over, the Miami Shores market continues to be hot with no slowing down in sight.  Interest rates are projected to stay low until at least Summer of 2021, so expect pricing to continue to increase.

Please note that prices have not increased drastically, but because of lack of inventory and huge demand for homes, you can expect multiple offer scenarios especially if dealing in the price range between $400,000 and $900,000.  

The benchmark above shows stats for the past 12 months.  We have 4 months of inventory with an average price per square foot of $335 and average sales price of $682,000.

Buyers are not only from the U.S. but coming from Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela and Argentina.  If you are a seller, know how to work with foreign national sellers, even if they are cash buyers – your agent should be well versed in foreign national deals.

Although the stats show an average discount of 6%, we can tell you that we are seeing sales above asking on the first couple of days they are listed.  This obviously will not happen if you decide to grossly overprice your home, or if you have a fixer-upper or a unique property.

Cash deals account for 25.9% of all transactions and 81.8% of buyers are primary residents. Miami Shores defines a true community, diverse is age and culture.
