We are seeing a slight increase in inventory and a decrease in sales which are true indicators of a slowing market.  Although there is a slight buyer’s advantage, also evidenced by decrease in Market Action Index, Surfside continues to be a sought-out community because of schools, amenities, ocean lifestyle and proximity to the rest of Miami.  The thought of buying a small fixer upper in the 1/2 million range tells you that Surfside will not suffer a down market.

Our real-time market reports conclude the following:

Slight Buyer’s Advantage – The Market Action Index has been trending lower for several weeks while prices have remained relatively stable. If inventory continues to grow relative to demand however, it is likely that we will see downward pressure on pricing.
