Miami-Dade Real Estate Prices Rise in February
If you’re looking to sell your home, it’s still a great time to have your house on the market in Miami-Dade. Median sales prices for homes are on the rise. Furthermore, while the inventory of homes may up, they are selling closer to their asking price.
Single-family homes have decreased .8 percent in the median number of days they are listed to when they have a contract date to 122 days. The actual selling price of homes in Miami is remaining quite close to the property’s listing price.
Higher prices and higher inventory
Inventory for single-family homes across Miami-Dade has increased due in part to new construction. With limited vacant land, where else can you build, but up?
Condominiums are holding strong in sales in the preconstruction market. Older condominiums have been struggling competing with new, luxuriously, constructed condominiums, especially in the Brickell area. Secondly, condos in general have greater difficulty for buyers looking for mortgage options. However, with new plans for FHA guidelines, getting approved with a condo has potentially become easier. Furthermore, mortgage rates are still historically low and should continue to help buyers.
Cash transactions are still going strong
As of February, the total number of cash transactions in Miami more than doubled that of the national average. Cash transactions made up 52.4 percent of sales. Condo sales made up 66.3 percent of those cash sales and single-family homes were 37.3 percent.
