According to Jorge L. Guerra Jr., chair of the Miami Association of Realtors, “Robust pent-up demand, record-low mortgage rates and purchases from tax-burdened Northeastern home buyers are fueling a resilient Miami real estate market.”
Existing home sales are blanketing the market with double-digit growth among all market sectors but in October, there was a +122% blast of luxury home sales. One result of this blast was an annual increase of more than +19% in Miami-area median sale prices.
Palm Beach County is nipping at the heels of Miami-Dade in this dramatic divergence between lux and “mainstream” markets. Though mainstream single-family home sales increased by nearly one-third y/y in October. Million-dollar-plus sales soared +140% for both single-family and condominium sales. This lux buying frenzy in Palm Beach County has mirrored that in Miami-Dade by jacking up median single-family home prices +17% to $420,000 compared to one year ago.
The middle county, Fort Lauderdale’s Broward County between Palm Beach and Miami-Dade Counties, saw million-dollar-plus home sales increase +84% y/y in October.
