This is a Miami Real Estate Market Report for June 2009 – good news is that inventory is going down in every single area I looked at.  Although sales have not picked up as much as I would have expected, the Miami Real Estate Market is surely making a comeback!  In case you missed some good news from this past month -

Miami Shores Real Estate Market Report

Miami Shores Real Estate There are currently 126 listings in Miami Shores: (21 less than last month)

  • Highest priced listing is $2.5 million (bayfront home located at 9179 N. Bayshore Drive -  short sale reduced from $3.15 million from last month)
  • Lowest priced listing is $119,900 (foreclosure at 52 NW 111th St now under auction terms)
  • Pending Sales (Properties under contract):37 (same as last month)
  • Closed sales in June: 10 (same as previous month)

Nine out of the 10 sales in Miami Shores were under $400,000.  One was a short-sale and 2 were foreclosures.  The lowest closed sale last month was the property located at 74 NE 103rd Street, which was on and off the market since 2005 priced as high as $699,999 and ended up selling for $143,000 as a foreclosure.  The Highest closed sale in June in Miami Shores was for the home located at 9650 NE 5th Road - Listed since 2007 for $1,081,223 and selling last month for $605,000.   I sometimes wonder if these homes were priced more competitively from the start, they would have sold them quicker and for much higher - but that is always difficult to communicate to sellers.
