2016 was a year of changes and challenges all around. The Miami Shores Real Estate market was not clear of adversity, but overall, it turned out to be a great year. We still saw an increase in price per square feet, small amount of distressed sales, and low inventory of listings, which all helped to keep the market strong.
Unlike many areas around Miami, Miami Shores is not yet in a buyer's market. We continue to be in a transitional market because the demand is stronger than the supply. Transitional because volume of sales have decreased and this is due to a few different factors but mostly because of elections and negative press by the media or yellow journalism (not painting a clear picture about the real estate market).
The truth is that real estate is hyper local. Just because downtown Miami has an overabundance of condo inventory, doesn't mean that the single-family market in Miami Shores will be affected. It's important to scrutinize small areas at a time, to distinguish who the players are in the area, in order to make educated analysis of each real estate market.
An example of this would be: the third generation family buying in Miami Shores will not be the audience of Brickell, for example. The Brazilian investor looking for cash flow will not be the audience for Miami Shores. Without further ado, here's the Miami Shores Real Estate Market Report for 2016.
