Surfside Real Estate Market Report for 2017

Time to report about Surfside's Real Estate market in 2017.  While a lot of neighborhoods around Miami didn't fare that well last year, Surfside remained a power to be reckoned with.  The market did slow down in number of sales, but inventory remained low while demand was high which meant prices continue to climb.

One indicator is price ranges in Surfside.  Can you believe that the least expensive home for sale right now in Surfside is listed for $574,000??  We're talking a fixer upper on an average 5,600 SF lot for over 1/2 Million dollars!! That's how you define Surfside's real estate market!

There were 49 Surfside homes sold in 2017 and 8 of them were waterfront, giving the Surfside Luxury market a much better perspective than the previous year with only 2 waterfront sales. The average price per square foot for homes on the water was $607, ranging from $441 to $732.

Let's take a look at price per square foot changes for non-waterfront homes in Surfside.

Surfside Homes - Price per Square Foot

Here is a list with average price per square foot in the past years for Surfside homes not on the water:

Year Price per SF
2017 $382/SF
2016 $377/SF
2015 $350/SF
2014 $324/SF
2013 $270/SF
2012 $233/SF
2011 $193/SF

Price per square foot has increased $189 in 6 years, that's a HUGE WOW even for South Florida standards.  Please keep that in mind when thinking up upgrading homes, Surfside is an amazing investment, especially if you bought 6+ years ago.
