South Florida’s residential market began to show signs of cracking in March, with home sales mostly flat in Miami-Dade and Broward, and up only slightly in Palm Beach, year-over-year, as the pandemic began to impact closings and new inventory.

Still, sales dollar volume and prices continued to rise across the region, according to Miami Association of Realtors’ reports.

Miami-Dade

Sales dollar volume still rose, up 8.3 percent to $641.2 million for single-family homes, and up 12.1 percent to $557.8 million for condos.

Prices also jumped. The median price for single-family homes increased 9 percent year-over-year in March to $382,750. The median price for condos grew by 9.8 percent to $269,000.
