The Miami Herald just published a series of articles on How to Buy a Home Now in Miami - within those articles, there is a section of "lesser known neighborhoods" in Miami and their appeal.  We were happy to have been interviewed for a few of those neighborhoods and Surfside in particular that is close to our hearts.

Surfside remains a hidden gem where its urban plan, location and proximity to the ocean, as well as infrastructure, make it so attractive to live in.  It will be common to see a price fluctuation when you analyze the market on a monthly basis, so it's important to look at the big picture and look back at least 6 months to see how the market is behaving.

We also have our REAL-TIME market reports that will send you weekly reports with real-time stats and numbers that will make sense and will help you make a decision on when to buy or sell.  Please take a look at SURFSIDE REAL TIME TRENDS.
