There hasn't been much change in the mid to high end inventory in Miami Shores which means there are a lot of people ready to buy but are waiting for those homes to come on the market. We're talking pre-aproved, ready buyers ready to pull the trigger but the inventory is not there. So if you are in the market to sell between $500,000 and $1 Million.....just know that there are people looking in that price range!
