A drop in single-family home sales due to low inventory and rising prices brought down overall residential closings in Broward and Palm Beach counties in December. Still, residential sales rose in Miami-Dade, and the tri-county region saw a record number of sales in all of 2021.

Sales of single-family homes decreased in all three counties in December, according to the Miami Association of Realtors reports, citing MLS data. Prices continued to rise, and dollar volume surged compared to December 2020. Dollar volume totaled $7 billion in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Compared to the pre-pandemic December 2019, single-family home sales rose 15.5 percent, and condo deals climbed more than 66 percent.

The median price of single-family homes grew by 15.4 percent in December to $525,000. For condos, it increased by 29.3 percent to $355,000.
