Residential sales surged for a third straight month throughout South Florida, with luxury sales leading the charge.

Total home sales across the region reached nearly $4.3 billion in November, according to the Miami Association of Realtors.

Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties all experienced double-digit jumps in sales, year-over-year, just as they did in October and September.

Sales dollar volume of single-family homes also soared in November, spiking by more than 50 percent in each county, topping out at nearly 98 percent in Palm Beach County.

The results came as luxury sales of over $1 million skyrocketed past November 2019 closings.

The surge in luxury sales led to a drop in months of supply for single-family homes in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. That was also the case for condos in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach; in Broward, the months of inventory slightly increased.

Pricing continued to rise across the tri-county area.

Residential sales rose 20.9 percent in Miami-Dade County last month, year-over-year, to 2,459 closings. Single-family home sales increased 18.7 percent to 1,154. Condo sales rose 23 percent to 1,305.

Closed dollar volume of single-family homes climbed 77.1 percent, to $932.6 million. Condo sales volume totaled $586.1 million, up 55.5 percent.

Single-family luxury sales, priced at $1 million and up, jumped 120.3 percent, year-over-year, to 163; while luxury condo sales rose 88.2 percent to 96.
