There is talk about a shift into a buyer’s market in many areas of Miami but Surfside is NOT one of those. Take a look at the average price per square foot last month, a crazy $462. Inventory in Surfside remains low, demand remains high. This can only mean that the market will continue to be a seller’s market and prices will continue to increase.
When would you have imagined that the lowest priced home in Surfside would be in the $600k’s? That’s a fixer upper in a small lot with an average 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Surfside is not an area for first time home buyers for obvious reasons – prices are simply too high.
Those buyers without urgency will realize in the next couple of months that their waiting game will continue or will just need to pull the trigger and buy. Please don’t confuse the condo and single-family home market – completely different and don’t have anything to do with each other.
