We are beginning to see an uptick in pending single family home sales in Miami Beach.
There are currently 377 homes for sale in Miami Beach. Over the past 12 months, 88 homes have sold.
The good news is that prices have been coming down and there are some super deals on "REO" bank-owned homes, short sales and deals with owners who are just plain motivated to sell.
In fact, 16 single family homes went under contract in the past 30 days!
People frequently ask me to send them the "best deals" and "steals".
My website has all of the homes for sale in Miami Beach regardless of who the listing agent is.

In addition, I have compiled listings for sale on a spreadsheet organized by price per square foot. I will be happy to email to you.
