Surfside Real Estate Stats

Surfside is evidencing a decrease in inventory and increase in demand, like most of the rest of Miami.  Although general stats seem unchanged, we should see a decrease in absorption rate in the next couple of months which will show more of a balanced market instead of a buyer’s market. 

Simple law of economics show that less inventory and more demand should start leveling off the market a bit – we’ll keep a close eye and will continue reporting on the second week of every month.

Please note that because of Surfside’s location and close proximity to the beach, we are not just seeing buyers from the U.S. but also from Argentina, Germany, Italy and Spain, with 55.7% of transactions being cash.  It’s interesting to note that 50.5% of all owners are not primary residents and use their properties either as a second home, a vacation home or an investment.  This is key when marketing your home for sale – micro data is what maximizes the value of your home and that’s what we specialize in.
