The average sold price per square foot in Miami Shores in February for homes not on the water was $283, compared to $289 in January and 2017's average of $293.

There was only one Miami Shores waterfront home sold in February.  The above mentioned bay front home (which we had previously sold for $4 Million back in 2016), sold for $3,550,000 at a $450,000 loss and $696/SF.

The slight drop in price per square foot from January to February, has to do with the low sale at 711 NE 93 St.  There's always a property that throws off comps and it's important to understand its condition and how it really compares to neighboring properties.  That home needed a new roof, new electrical and complete renovation - hence its $154/SF sale price.  If we drop that property from the average, it takes up the number to $299/SF.

Please also note that 4 out of the 10 deals were cash buyers (40%).  We are seeing an increase in cash purchases in Miami Shores and will continue to monitor these. 

We remind you that in addition to preparing these monthly market reports, we also have 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.  If you want a no-obligation home value report, please go to MiamismValue.com.
