  • April $177/sf
  • March $149/sf
  • February $192/sf
  • January $174/sf
  • Average price per square foot in 2013 $176

Because neighboring towns like Miami Shores and Biscayne Park have seen such increases in real estate, El Portal remains one of the affordable areas with a great community feel, their own city hall and police department.  It's a great area if you have been priced out of neighboring cities and you will still be in close proximity to all their amenities and events.
