  • 9500 N Miami Av – Here’s a nice flip job – sold in January of 2013 for $140,000, was relisted for $389,900 in April of 2013, increased to $469,900, then reduced a few times, and finally sold for $390,000 with a nice profit.  ($248/sq.ft.)

  • 274 NW 93 St – foreclosure listed for $235,000 and selling for $242,369 ($151/sq.ft.)

The average sales price per square foot for Miami Shores homes in July was $223 which is the same as the average price per square foot in the first 1/2 of 2014 ($223) and higher than 2013′s average of $215.

Although there were 3 foreclosure sales in July, please don’t interpret this to mean that Miami Shores real estate market is doing poorly or that there is a lot of distressed inventory.  On the contrary, it is normal to see some distressed sales, but these are few and in-between.  Of the current 68 homes for sale, 2 of those are short sales and 3 are foreclosures, this is less than 4% of the for sale inventory.

We have been asked to tell you more about the Miami Shores waterfront real estate market, so here it is.  Out of the 68 homes currently for sale, 7 of those are on the water:  3 of them on a canal with a fixed bridge, 1 of them on the 104th canal without a fixed bridge, and 3 of them on the bay.

The average listing price per square foot for the bay fronts is $766 – The canal front home is listed for $397 and the 3 canal homes with fixed bridges average $353/sq.ft.

When it comes to sales of waterfront homes in Miami Shores – in the past year, there have been 8 homes sold.

  • 2 homes on the canal with a fixed bridge – one selling as a foreclosure for $272/sq.ft. in July of 2013, and the other for $273 (average $272.5/sq.ft.)
  • 1 home selling on 103 St canal with no fixed bridges at $466/sq.ft.
  • 5 bay front homes selling (all in very different conditions: 2 of them foreclosures and 1 a short sale), averaging $452/sq.ft. <<less than canal front which is insane!!  The highest price per square foot was $696 for an impeccable and completely remodeled home.

There is currently a bay front lot for sale for $2.5 million with approved site plan by the City of Miami Shores.  It is not in the MLS but would be glad to share the details if you contact me directly.
