The residential market in South Florida continued to take a beating in October.

Residential closings fell nearly 30 percent, year-over-year, across Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties to 6,216 sales, according to the Miami Association of Realtors, which only tracks sales recorded on the Multiple Listing Service. That follows a 20 percent drop in August and a 25 percent drop in September as the Federal Reserve continues to hike interest rates in its attempt to tamp historic inflation.

Closed dollar volume fell 20 percent to $4 billion in October across the tri-county region, compared to the $5 billion recorded in October of last year.

Median prices continued to rise in all three counties.
