South Florida Real Estate Market Recovery Ranked Best in the Nation

South Florida real estate salesThe South Florida real estate market is experiencing a larger bounce back than most housing markets around the nation.

Evidently, Palm Beach County, Broward County and Miami-Dade County are all seeing major jumps in their median sales price – making them some of the fastest improving markets in the country!

This is obviously great news for luxury South Florida home sellers who are hoping to get a respectable price for their South Florida property!

South Florida Home Sales

Here’s a breakdown of recent South Florida real estate market activity:

  • Broward County’s median price was $127,000, up 21 percent from the year before.
  • During that previous year, the median sales price in Broward County was $105,000.
  • That jump in Broward County was the highest jump of any housing market in the nation!
  • In Miami Dade County, the median sales price was $165,000, up 20 percent from the year before.
  • During that previous year, the median price in Miami-Dade was $138,000.

Although a lot of South Florida homes lost nearly half their value during the housing crisis, experts are now saying that the market is bouncing back from that drop.

Helping the situation is a lot of demand from investors as well as a shrinking supply of available South Florida homes for sale.

Rising rental prices are also driving more home buyers to the market.

Real Estate Market Report for Hollywood Lakes Subdivision in South Florida

A lot can change over the course of a year in the South Florida real estate market.

The home sales data for this historic neighborhood (located off the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean) is compared below during the first part of the year for 2010 and 2011.

Hollywood, Florida Real Estate

Here’s a look at closed sales data in Hollywood Lakes from Jan 1, 2010 to May 16, 2010.  Please keep in mind this is only for closed sales not active listings.

  • Total homes sold: 22
  • Minimum list price: $160,000
  • Maximum list price: $1,300,000
  • Minimum sales price: $99,000
  • Maximum sale price: $1,275,000
  • Minimum Days on the Market: 1
  • Maximum Days on the Market: 478

Now compare that with sales date for Hollywood Lakes between Jan. 1, 2011 and May 6, 2011:

  • Total homes sold: 17
  • Minimum list price: $235,000
  • Maximum list price: $619,000
  • Minimum sales price: $234,000
  • Maximum sale price: $580,000
  • Minimum Days on the Market: 6
  • Maximum Days on the Market: 401

One of the biggest conclusions I’ve drawn from this data is that the South Florida real estate market is beginning to stabilize and grow.

Consider This: 45 percent of homes that sold in that time period in 2010 were on the market for more than 100 days, compared with 41 percent in 2011.

And while sales prices are lower in 2011, they’re closer to the list price than in 2010, where the difference varied widely in some cases.
