Surfside’s inventory continues to be low and homes are taking a bit longer to sell.  We are still not seeing buyer urgency, not even with increase in finance rates.  There’s a misconception by buyers, in many cities like Surfside, that prices are very negotiable.  All you need to do is pull comps, not just look at list price.  Many sellers continue to overprice their homes and the continuous price decrease in listings makes it obvious – this does not mean, however, that prices are decreasing.  It means seller was testing possibility of selling home for more.

Contact us for a no-obligation consultation to give you an idea what your home could sell for.  It’s key to know the right market timing to get the right price for your home.

We also have our REAL-TIME market reports that will send you weekly reports with real-time stats and numbers that will make sense and will help you make a decision on when to buy or sell.  Please take a look at SURFSIDE REAL TIME TRENDS.
