Here are the facts, Belle Meade continues to be a desirable area to live with guard gates, beautiful architecture and amazing location within Miami.  Although it's a buyer's market, real estate continues to sit strong but homes are taking longer to sell.  It's important, as a seller, to analyze not only pricing strategy, but your timing as well.  Overpricing is not a good strategy in a buyer's market, but pricing well may get you multiple offers.  Please speak to a real estate professional that KNOWS the area and historic stats.  Strategizing as a team is key in the current state of the market.

Real-time market stats for 33138 suggest a slight Buyer's Advantage,

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.
