This is a Miami Real Estate Market Report for the months of January, February, March and April 2008. It is obvious that some real estate markets are seeing more movement but others remain quiet. If you are thinking of buying Miami real estate, make sure you work with a Miami Realtor that knows the area and the market fluctuations. If you are selling, May should be a great month right before the slow Summer months.

Miami Shores Real Estate Miami Shores Real Estate Market Report

  • Lowest priced listing is $199,900
  • Pending Sales (Properties under contract):12

14 of those 25 sales were under $500,000 and the highest sale was $860,000 at 490 NE 96th Street. And as I said last month, ˜this particular house was purchased for $1,508,000 in September 2005¦.talk about a big OUCH for those sellers!!

No sales this year in Bay Harbor Islands. That has to be tough for those people that HAVE to move.

I love Surfsides density and the 12 story max allowed on the oceanfront condos. If you dont like high-rises, Surfside may be for you. It also has a great close community with shopping and restaurants as well as Bal Harbour Shops within walking distance.
