“South Florida by the numbers” is a web feature that catalogs the most notable, quirky and surprising real estate statistics.

Full disclosure: This is not the first time we have covered this topic in any given November, but there is just so much to be thankful for at the moment. After a hot third quarter for local real estate, there is an air of optimism and excitement (not to mention the first hints of coolness since February), and for all that and so much more, we are grateful. So please pass the turkey and enjoy this Thanksgiving edition of South Florida by the numbers.
