To think that the lowest priced home is Surfside is over $600,000 is unreal.  Many of you will remember that you could buy a Surfside home in the $200k’s, just a few years ago.  This is key in identifying strong markets in South Florida and knowing that Surfside is up there when it comes to appreciation and desirability. 

Of course you will see price per square foot fluctuate from month to month, but you need to keep your eye on the prize and go back at least 6 months.  The average price per square foot in Surfside in the last 6 months is $382 compared to 2017’s average of $377.  It’s a conservative increase, but shows that Surfside continues to appreciate even when the media continues to report doom and gloom.

Home sales have been exceeding new inventory for several weeks. Since this is a Buyer’s market prices are not yet moving higher as excess inventory is consumed. However, as the supply and demand trends continue, the market moves into the Seller’s zone, and we are likely to see upward pressure on pricing.
