South Florida’s multifamily market continued to have another strong month in July. The growing demand for properties outside of South Florida’s major metros, like Lake Worth, is likely driven in part by South Florida’s lack of affordable housing, which has pushed renters outside of the urban cores.
The July investment sales figures were compiled from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County property records.
