Surfside Real Estate Stats

Surfside’s real estate market may feel like a seller’s market because of the low inventory, but it’s still a buyer’s market with 8 months of inventory.  Price per square foot has increased a bit to $436 (this is for the last 12 months, not monthly). And the average closed price increased also to $935,000.

If you are a buyer feeling frustrated at the market and feeling you cannot get into a house, keep in mind that the “sweet spot” is between $600k-800k. << price range that everyone is looking for.

Those overpriced homes are seeing price corrections (take a look at original prices of sold homes last month).

It’s interesting to note that 38.8% of all deals in the last 12 months were cash (no financing), and buyers are not just local and from other parts of the U.S., they are also coming from Italy. 80.4% of all purchases were for primary residences which identifies a true neighborhood with a low investment ratio.
