South Florida’s residential sales soared again in June, with Miami-Dade reporting triple-digit annual gains, according to reports from the Miami Association of Realtors.
The huge annual increases are in part due to lower sales last June during the pandemic.
Single-family home and condo sales have been on the rise in the tri-county region for months, as more buyers migrate from high-tax states and borrowers take advantage of low interest rates, leading to less inventory. The result is a seller’s market in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.
In June, sales dollar volume for all three counties totaled more than $8 billion, up from nearly $7 billion in May. The increase was spurred by luxury sales.
Median prices also continued to rise, reaching $500,000 for single-family homes across the region.
Total home sales in Miami-Dade soared 114 percent in June, year over year, to 4,057. Condo sales experienced the biggest jump, up 213 percent to 2,515 closings. Single-family home sales rose 42 percent to 1,542.
Luxury sales, defined as those over $1 million, showed even greater gains. Single-family sales jumped 253 percent to 311 sales. Condo sales skyrocketed 614 percent to 307 transactions compared with June 2020.
As a result, sales dollar volume surged to $3.1 billion, increasing 121 percent year over year to $1.5 billion for single-family home sales, and climbing 376 percent to $1.6 billion for condo sales.
Inventory fell to 2.2 months for single-family homes and 5.1 months for condos, indicating a seller’s market.
Prices continued to climb. The median single-family home was priced at $500,000, an annual jump of 29 percent. The median condo price increased by 30 percent to $340,000.
Broward’s total home sales rose 77 percent to 4,121 sales. Single-family homes accounted for less than half of the closings, increasing 37 percent to 1,803. Condo sales grew by 127 percent to 2,318.
In the luxury sector, single-family sales jumped 230 percent year over year to 244 sales. Condo sales soared 341 percent to 75 closings.
