The Real Deal Miami

Tri-county sales up 43 percent

May 03, 2010 02:24PM

Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Broward counties staged a substantial comeback in March, according to a report just released by the real estate research group MDA DataQuick, with total home sales reaching 8,658 for the month, up 43.3 percent from February. Although sales tend to spike during that time of year, according to DataQuick, the uptick is significantly higher than what is typically seen across the three counties. This could be due in part to the first-time homebuyer tax credit, according to the report, which may have spurred some buyers into action before the deadline last Friday. [HousingWire]
