A waterfront home in Surfside flipped for $8.5 million, marking a new record price, just eight months after trading hands for $6.9 million.

And the previous sale, in late January, had also set a record for single-family home sales in Surfside.

In this latest deal, 9408 Bay Drive LLC, led by Zelman and Leah Oberlander, sold the 6,793-square-foot house at 9408 Bay Drive to Lindsay Rosenwald and Rivki Davidowitz Rosenwald. It traded for 23 percent more than in January.

The house, with seven bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms, features 50 feet of water frontage and 2,000 square feet of outdoor terrace space, including a rooftop terrace. Sharon Beck of Luxuri International represented the seller, according to an e-blast.

The Oberlanders had acquired the property from spec home developers Reuven and Iris Herssein.

The record for a single-family home sale in Surfside before the two sales of this property was $5.5 million. Condos often trade for much more.

Oceanfront condo sales had been on the rise prior to the deadly collapse of Champlain Towers South at the southern border of Surfside. In early June, a penthouse at Arte sold for $22.5 million.

Flips have become more common in South Florida, as the inventory of high-end homes has declined, while demand has remained high.
