  • March average $415
  • February average $382
  • January - no sales
  • 2017's average of $382/SF.

We are seeing a slight decrease in pricing but it could certainly be an indication of the type of inventory that has been selling.  Surfside buyers are slightly different than similar neighborhoods because they are willing to do work and fix up homes in need of updates.  In other neighborhoods, homes in need of updates are sitting on the market for longer periods.  Although inventory is increasing slightly, and pricing seems to be following, the Market Action Index continues to drop every month, which shows the market is favoring buyers.

The Market Action Index has been trending lower for several weeks while prices have remained relatively stable. If inventory continues to grow relative to demand however, it is likely that we will see downward pressure on pricing.
