  • March's average **no sales
  • February's average $598
  • January's average $690

Surfside continues to see a drop in inventory and although the average price per square foot has fluctuations, it's common when the number of sales is low.  That's why we encourage you to look at stats that comprise of 6 months to a year to have a clear understanding of market trends in a particular area. 

The Market Action Index increased another 2 points to 26, which still shows slight buyer's advantage. 

Home sales have been exceeding new inventory for several weeks. Since this is a Buyer’s market, prices are not yet moving higher as excess inventory is consumed. However, as the supply and demand trends continue, the market moves into the Seller’s zone, and we are likely to see upward pressure on pricing.
