Surfside Real Estate Market Report for 2019

Ines Hegedus-Garcia

Talk about a bumpy ride for Surfside but we are happy to report that the market seems to be back on track.  It's common to see neighborhoods with fast appreciation to come to a complete halt and even regress a bit to past years.  2019 proves that Surfside is back on track but keep in mind that appreciation will be very conservative.  

The highest sale right now is for a Max Strang designed, bay front home at 1276 Biscaya Drive, listed for $6,295,000.  This home was listed in December and is definitely a one-of-a-kind property. 

The lowest listing is for the property at 8712 Byron Ave, being sold since October 2018 as a "development opportunity" with 2 adjacent lots also available, for $550,000.

Out of the 48 homes in Surfside sold in 2019, only 7 were waterfront, and those selling at an average square foot of $690 and ranging between $449/SF and $856/SF.

Let's start by taking 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
2019 $386/SF
2018 $360/SF
2017 $382/SF
2016 $377/SF
2015 $350/SF
2014 $324/SF
2013 $270/SF
2012 $233/SF
2011 $193/SF

Surfside is now back on track - after seeing massive increases, 2018 proved to be a challenging year and now expect appreciation to remain at a conservative pace. It is still a buyer's market with 12 months of inventory - this means that at the current pace of sales, it would take 12 months for current inventory to sell.

What is interesting to note, at a micro level, from Surfside's sold data in 2019, is that 3 bedroom homes sold for a higher price per square foot ($393/SF average), than 4 bedroom homes ($346/average).  2-bedroom homes had an average discount of 11% in Surfside and most sales happened between $500,000 and $700,000.  That's what we call Surfside's "sweet spot".
