May showed the lowest price per square foot in Surfside all year giving you the impression that the market is decreasing.  Let’s keep an eye out in months ahead but this is a clear indicator that market is shifting to a buyer’s market.  Not yet enough data to determine a decrease in prices so please don’t get your panties all in a bunch.
