Total home sales fell across South Florida in November, reflecting a decline in condo closings in Broward and Palm Beach counties.

In Miami-Dade, condo sales rose marginally, but single-family home sales dropped, according to the newly released figures, from the Miami Association of Realtors.
Other counties recorded a slight rise in sales of single-family homes.

The November results follow a similarly choppy October, when condo sales declined across the region, and single-family home sales rose in Miami-Dade and Broward, but fell in Palm Beach.

The third quarter was a strong one, however, with sales rising across the tri-county area. The exception was condo sales in Palm Beach County.
