Because we have hit the mid point of 2017, it’s good to look at the year’s stats as well.  Remember that appraisers will look 3 months back and 6 months back.  To really scrutinize a market, you need to look at at least 6 months of movement to make a fair assessment of the market.

With that said – the average price per square foot for Surfside homes NOT on the water for the first half of 2017 is $396 (compared to 2016’s average of $377) – It’s important to see an upward trend which shows a gradual instead of a drastic change.

The average price per square foot for Surfside home on the water for the first half of 2017 is $599. (but only a total of 3 homes sold)

We are seeing a gradual increase in price per square foot not only on a monthly basis, but for the first half of the year.  Inventory continues to be low and demand remains the same.  Surfside continues to be one of the strong single-family real estate markets in South Florida.
