What is the average price per square foot in Miami Shores?

The average sold price per square foot in Miami Shores in October for homes not on the water was $352, compared to:

There was 1 waterfront home sold in October located at 1460 NE 101 St, directly on the bay.  This home was purchased for $2.22 Million in March of 2015, was completely remodeled and placed on the market for sale in August of 2016 for $3.85 Million.  It had several price reductions and MLS shows a contract that fell through.  It finally sold for $2,781,400 at $967/SF which is market price for bay front homes in Miami Shores.

Miami Shores Opinion

We are seeing an increase in inventory and slight decrease in sales which gives a slight advantage to buyers.  The high sales this past month are smaller homes, selling for higher per square foot because there is limited inventory of smaller homes.  Condition of the home is key in identifying selling price and there are no unusual high sales except for the wood frame home located 21 NW 101 St which sold for $411/SF.

The waterfront home sold last month, as mentioned above, sold for $967 SF and sat unsold for almost 2 years because it was grossly overpriced from day 1, even if totally remodeled. 

The Market Action Index decreased to 29, keep in mind that an index above 30 implies Seller's Market conditions. Below 30, conditions favor the buyer.

Slight Seller's Advantage: The market has been consistently cool for several weeks. Demand level are low relative to the available inventory. It's a Buyer's market and prices continue to fall. Look for a persistent shift in Market Action before prices plateau or begin to rise again.
