South Florida ranks near last in Homes.com’s list of real estate recoveries across the country, the Miami Herald reported.
Comparing metropolitan areas’ rebound in home prices to the peaks of past markets, Texas is king with six of the top 10 spots. San Antonio ranks at the top of the homes.com list, besting its pre-crash peak by about 120 percent.
According to the report, 19 of the top U.S. markets showed more than a 100 percent rebound since the Great Recession – up from the 14 markets in last month’s report. “That is now almost 20 percent of the top U.S. markets that are fully recovered!” the report’s author, Homes.com marketing analyst Nicole Selvaggi, wrote.
South Florida finished 89th out of 100. According to the site, homes in the region have only recovered 14 percent of their previous peak value since touching bottom. [Miami Herald] — Emily Schmall
