BUYERS HOPING FOR FORECLOSURES
FACE COMPETITION FROM INVESTORS
NEW YORK – Wall Street’s appetite for fixer-upper houses is insatiable, a challenge compounded by the task of finding shabby, out-of-date properties to renovate and resell for a profit.
For more than a year, foreclosure moratoriums blocked a major flow of fixer-uppers, starting with last spring’s lockdown.

The Current Miami Springs Market
A GREAT TIME TO SELL!
There are 19 active listings in the MS/VG market. The inventory continues to remain low. Though it has fluctuated in the last months, inventory has remained between 20-25 listings. Prices remain very strong in Miami Springs and Virginia Gardens. There are many qualified Buyers, but the market is still favorable for Sellers. The Buyers are out there—sell now! Please refer to the articles posted on our website.
Seventeen (17) listings are priced over $500,000. Two (2) properties are listed over $1,000,000. Six (6) active listings have had a price reduction (0 this week). We remain in a strong Sellers' market with high demand. The market will change! Increased inventory is on the horizon, with increased foreclosures coming later this year.
MULTIPLE OFFERS CONTINUE AND LISTINGS KEEP SELLING OVER LIST PRICE!!
Mortgage interest rates continue to remain historically low, and there are serious Buyers. Timing is everything! The demand is high, especially for properties under $400,000. There is one (1) listing under $400,000–an unapproved short sale. This lack of inventory makes it difficult for most first-time Buyers. Competition from multiple offers have become quite common. One (1) property is priced between $400,000-$500,000; ten (10) properties are priced between $500,000-$700,000; one (1) property is priced between $700,000-$800,000; and six (6) properties are priced between $800,000 and over $1 million.
