There was only one waterfront home sold in July - 9156 Bay Drive and sold for $726/SF.

Inventory continues to drop in Surfside and demand remains strong.  Homes that are selling for top dollar are those that are remodeled and in top showing condition.  If you are thinking of selling, you need to be realistic about what a remodeled home is:  it will have impact windows, a newer roof, updated electrical and plumbing, new kitchen and bathrooms and current/modern finishes and materials.  

Homes that are sitting on the market are usually ones that need work and Surfside buyers are looking for size and updates before everything else.

Because national and county-wide news sources can be slow and not accurately represent what is happening in your local market, we recommend signing up to our localized, easy to read real-time market reports that provide you with a well-rounded, up to date view of how the real estate market is behaving.  Please CLICK HERE for Surfside reports or visit for other areas.

Contact us for a no-obligation consultation to give you an idea what your home could sell for.  It's key to know the right market timing to get the right price for your home.
