The law of supply and demand really applies in when it comes to Surfside homes.  Inventory is at an all-time low and demand is very high.  Demand is especially high for 4 bedroom homes and those that are in move-in condition.  Keep this in mind when you are remodeling, adding a 4th bedroom will help your home not only sell quickly, but appreciate at a faster rate.
