Everyone that asks us how the Miami Shores real estate market is doing gets the same answer and although buying or selling is very particular to your own needs, it's important to note that Miami Shores, historically, has been a conservative market.  What exactly does that mean?  It means when there's a huge price surge in the rest of Miami, price increases in Miami Shores are conservative and the same applies to price drops.

2016's average price per square foot was $278 compared to $290 so far this year.  Pretty stable market if you ask me.  And although many economists project a drop, that drop will not be considerable, in my humble opinion, based on historic data for Miami Shores.

So here's where it gets interesting.  If you are planning to sell, ask us what areas are doing better and what you need to do to maximize your particular ROI (return on investment) - sometimes paint goes a long way, but do you know what's more important to today's buyers? Is it having a newer roof?  Is it having impact resistant windows?  Is it having new plumbing and electrical or even septic system?  That's where our expertise comes in.  Let us come in and give us our professional opinion, you may be shocked with the information.

Please note that we prepare these market reports on a monthly basis at the beginning of every month and we also provide automated real-time market reports to help you stay on top of the pulse.  We also provide no-obligation consultations, so feel free to contact us if you are curious about selling your home.
