Broward County saw a 56 percent increase in existing home sales in July, according to the Florida Association of Realtors, while Palm Beach County saw a 32 percent increase. That contributes to a national average increase of 7.2 percent, according to figures released last week by the National Association of Realtors. A full rebound isn’t happening, but rather, there is continued gradual improvement, said Mike Larson, a housing analyst with Weiss Research in Jupiter.
