The average price per square foot in March for Surfside homes not on the water was $410, compared to previous months:

There were no waterfront sales in Surfside in March. The average price per square foot in previous months was:

  • February's average $598
  • January's average $690

Surfside is seeing a gradual drop in inventory, consistently in the past few months.  This may prove to be positive although we need to see the overpriced listings get a bit more realistic.  What's interesting to point out is that all 4 sales in March were cash deals.  This has 2 meanings:  one is that sales can be a bit higher than market because they do not rely on a bank appraisal.  This also means that cash is so common in South Florida, it doesn't make cash buyers that special.  Of course a seller will prefer a cash deal, but this does not mean that buyers are not educated on market trends and does not mean they are willing to pay more for a property - on the contrary, it gives them more negotiating power because cash will make the transaction easier.

The Market Action Index increased to 24! which still shows slight buyer's advantage. Contact us for a complimentary evaluation of your home.
