The average selling price per square foot for Surfside homes in August was $328 which is considerably higher than the $287/sq.ft average this year and 2013’s average of $270.  Demand continues to increase in Surfside and inventory remains low which means that even fixer uppers and homes that need renovations are selling for top dollar.

With the new Surf Club by Richard Meier making major construction advances, those cranes are creating excitement in the area because prices start around the $3 million range for a 1400 sq.ft. residence.  Remember this is a Four Seasons, with luxury amenities, spa, restaurants which the area has been anticipating.

We have a penthouse listing just 2 buildings north of Richard Meier’s Surf Club, at The Waverly, located on the beach with direct ocean views, for $1,100,000.   It’s a 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom condo with wrap-around balcony and 10′ ceilings.

Please give us a call to schedule a showing for this property, it’s vacant and the views will take your breath away.
