Although the real estate market in Miami Shores in starting to favor buyers, last month we saw evidence of high sales based solely on condition!!  Please pay attention because this is key to understanding the market.  Homes that are remodeled to today’s standards (not 15 years ago), are still selling for top dollar and above The $300/SF range.  Homes that are in good condition but need updating are selling bellow the $290/SF range depending on the updates and condition.  Buyers need to pay attention to size of property, age of major ticket items like roof, electrical, plumbing, drain fields.  But the reality is that inventory continues to drop and this will ultimately favor sellers once again.

And if you are wondering how Hurricane Irma impacted real estate in Miami, please don’t believe the stories that people are fleeing the area by the dozens.  Hurricanes are a part of our landscaping, want them or not.  For years, we have dealt with them and although they do slow down our lives for a couple of weeks, things are back to normal and running smoothly.  I do hope that it will help our building code get stronger, ultimately to protect us.
