Surfside Real Estate Stats

The average home in Surfside sells for $1.4 Million but the price range that sells the most is between $500,000 and $700,000.  There’s an average discount of 10% and inventory has increased to 25 months with a strong buyer’s market. As we predicted last month, demand has decreased which increases the absorption rate but with little inventory and little demand, the market will stagnate and does not mean we will see major reductions in pricing.

A lot of Miami communities are behaving similarly and unless we see an increase in inventory with a drop in demand, prices should remain untouched.

Surfside buyers are coming not only from the U.S. but from Argentina, Brazil, Canada and Spain.

We are seeing a slight increase in investors coming into the area but this increase also reflects a second home buyer pool. We are still showing properties and being more careful about pre-qualifying prospects and as you can see by sales, the market has not stopped.  Please note this is NOT a housing crisis and SHELTER is the single most important factor during this COVID-19 pandemic.
