South Florida home sales fell again in March, as median prices kept rising or remained flat across the tri-county region. 

Dollar volume for single-family and condo sales totaled $5.6 billion, down about 30 percent, compared to March 2022, according to the Miami Association of Realtors. Sales have been falling for nearly a year, as mortgage rates more than doubled and inventory remains at pre-pandemic lows. 

Sellers have started to catch on, and some are slashing their prices, brokers say.
