The average sold price per square foot in Miami Shores in April for homes not on the water was $309, compared to:

It's already May and take a look at the average price per square foot in April, first time it's above $300 in years!!  But please note that this is an indicator on the type of property that is selling.  It's crucial that you, as a seller, are realistic about the condition of your house to know what you can get for it.  The homes selling for $300 and over are completely remodeled homes in good locations.  Homes that need work are not remodeled to TODAY's standards, are selling below the $300/SF mark.  If you add busy streets, train tracks, across from park or community area, then that decreases the price.  Being realistic is key for getting top dollar and selling quickly.  You may love your home and think it's the best in the block, but you will need the opinion of a professional that knows the inventory, to let you know how your home compares.

The good news, according to our REAL-TIME market reports for Miami Shores is that the Market Action Index is at 30 which indicates a "slight seller's advantage".

In the last few weeks the market has achieved a relative stasis point in terms of sales to inventory. However, inventory is sufficiently low to keep us in the Seller’s Market zone so watch changes in the MAI. If the market heats up, prices are likely to resume an upward climb.

Also note that 4 out of the 14 closings were cash deals.  Not a huge change from other months but interesting to see that Miami Shores is attracting cash buyers.

In addition to these monthly reports that we prepare the first week of each month, we also have our REAL-TIME reports that you can sign up with or request a home value report from MiamismValue.com.

Miami Shores House of The Month

The Miamism Sales Team recommends the amazing open bay home located at 1600 NE 103 St.  Although this home has been on the market for a while, NOW it's at the right price at only $679/SF for direct, open bay views!!  We're talking a 20,534 SF lot with 120' of bay frontage.  This is one of Miami Shores Grand Estates, built in 1959 and although remodeled with traditional Mediterranean details, has all the potential to be modern as well.  Please note that bay front homes in Miami Beach are selling above $1,200/SF and as high as $2,500/SF.

The home boasts 6 bedrooms / 5 bathrooms / 2 half-baths, it has 6,733 SF of adjusted square footage and total 8,263 SF.  It has a new boat dock and features include a summer kitchen, outdoor terraces, gated entrance with security cameras, exterior patio areas, exercise room, sauna, theater room and so much more.
