The real estate market in Miami Shores is starting to favor buyers and you can evidence this with our Market Action Index which measures the current rate of sales versus the amount of inventory.  Inventory is starting to increase and sales are decreasing which will begin showing a slight decrease in pricing.  Please note that condition and location, as evidenced by the highest sale in Miami Shores, are crucial for getting top dollar.  Whether you are a seller or buyer, it's important to be realistic about both of those conditions to get your "selling price".  

Please take a look at our Miami Shores REAL-TIME market reports which offer weekly "market action index", "market segments", and "real-time market profile". National and County-wide news sources can be slow and do not accurately represent what is happening in our local market. That's where we can help. Our reports are localized, easy to read and provide you with a well-rounded up to date view of how the market is behaving.
