After rising in April, home sales fell in Miami-Dade and Broward counties in May, year-over-year, and rose slightly in Palm Beach County, according to the Florida Realtors.

Median prices of homes and condos increased in all three counties, with a dip in the average price of condos and townhouses in Palm Beach.

In all, South Florida closed residential sales of $3.65 billion in May, up 4.3 percent year-over-year.

Miami-Dade

Miami-Dade saw the most drastic decline in the tri-county area in May, with a 13 percent year-over-year decrease in residential closings, down to 2,373. Condo sales dropped 17.4 percent to 1,143 in May, while single-family home sales totaled 1,230, down 8.5 percent.

Again, luxury home sales outperformed other price points in Miami-Dade. Luxury sales, defined as properties priced at $1 million and up, rose 24.1 percent year-over-year to 196 closings.

The median price of a single-family home was up 7.7 percent to $350,000, and the median price of a condo was $245,000, up 8.9 percent.

Broward

Residential sales fell only 1.3 percent in Broward last month, down to 3,185 closings. The decline is due to a 3.9 percent drop in single-family home sales, bringing the total in May to 1,518. Condo and townhouse closings rose by 1.2 percent to 1,667, according to the report.

The median sale price for a single-family home was $168,000, up 5.7 percent from May 2017. For a condo and townhouse, the median price rose 6 percent to $355,000.
