Is 2017 really over?? Talk about a strange year for real estate. Strange because the media tried to push gloom and doom but they didn't really succeed. Small cities like Miami Shores continued to appreciate but the market was not quite right - inventory continued to linger and buyers still had no sense of urgency. But stats don't lie - home prices continue to appreciate conservatively.
The Miami Shores Luxury market was pretty stagnant with little waterfront sales but a few really great sales when it comes to price per square foot. We are seeing a lot of construction and we are also seeing fixer-uppers taking a lot longer to sell. Let's take a look at price per square foot.

Miami Shores Future
A lot of the things we had to look forward to in 2016 are finally here, which will continue to make Miami Shores more desirable. The sewers in our downtown area have been completed and now waiting on each landlord to connect. We are seeing new restaurants and cafes starting to open doors and new landlords showing pride of ownership by redoing facades to attract new businesses. The re-zonification project by RMA was approved and already placed into effect, a new dog park was opened and community events like the weekly Farmer's Market and monthly Plaza 98 are giving residents a place to congregate and enjoy.
