May was a rough month for residential sales in South Florida, following a slow April, with closed and pending sales falling due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Pending sales were down in May throughout the tri-county region, according to the Miami Association of Realtors, which indicates that closings could continue to fall in June. A Douglas Elliman report released last week showed that new signed contracts were up in May, but that does not include sales that were already pending.
