7 Signs why the Pinecrest Real Estate Market is Booming!

Pinecrest is one of Miami’s most desired neighborhoods and very much in demand with today’s relocation buyers. Much is written already about Miami’s booming real estate market, but few articles zoom into the different areas to give sellers a better understanding of what is going on and where we find the most demand.

This article shows you how desired the Pinecrest market is, highlighting the performance of homes in 4 different price ranges: $1M-$2M, $2M-$3M, $3M-$5M and $5M-$8M. It will also show you, which Pinecrest sub-markets performed the best or in other words; “Where did we see the most sales and the biggest drops in inventory?”, “Where did we see the greatest price increases?” and “Which properties sold closest to their asking prices?”.

This essentially brings me to my key message: Selling your Pinecrest home right now will get you top dollar! There is no need to even list your property, just a willingness to entertain offers and to be prepared to sell at the right price. I have buyers looking that I can bring directly without the need to go on market to list your property. Please contact me for more information at (305) 508-0899.

Sales prices saw an impressive increase in the last 6 months. The $3M-$5M range saw the largest increase of 20% while the $1M-$2M homes saw its average price per SF rise by 10%. The $5M-$8M market recorded a 14% increase, but this market does not have many sales so drawing conclusions would not be fair. In smaller markets, it is better to look at numbers on a case-by-case basis.

Where to Go After You Sell Your Pinecrest Home in 2022?

Many owners are tempted to sell, but do not know where to move to next. They do understand this is a hot market (probably as hot as it can get) and top dollar can be received, but where do they go after they sell? Many of my past and current sellers in the same situation are selling to move into more desired areas, whether this might be in Pinecrest, the Gables or the Grove. They live on a desired street, but they want to move into a private community, move into a waterfront home or build their dream home from the bottom up. Will they get the same quality finish or levels of renovations in a better neighborhood? No, but they buy for the same price in a better neighborhood and they are thinking to upgrade that home in the near future and in that way they are building up their capital. Today’s extreme market provides for extreme opportunity!

Extreme behavior leads to extreme opportunity.  Many people that just bought a new home several years ago are given an extreme opportunity in this market. Those who own a brand new home, a completely renovated home, a home that is well maintained or those who have a home with really good bones. You could sell your home for a number, which will not be easily achieved again in the near future. Relocation buyers need to move, they are willing to pull the trigger and are often willing to play a surplus in today’s market.
