Palm Beach County home prices rise again: report

Palm Beach County single-family and condo prices rose again in March, but industry experts say the market is starting to slow down.

The single-family median price in Palm Beach County was $265,000 last month, according to the latest data from the Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches. That represents a 6 percent year-over-year increase. Single-family prices rose by nearly 30 percent year-over-year last spring, however.

“It will still be a very good year, but it just will be slower compared to last year,” analyst Jack McCabe told the Sun-Sentinel. “Last year was artificial.” [Sun-Sentinel]Eric Kalis
