Existing condo sales in Miami-Dade County rose 36 percent in September compared to the same month last year, with 833 sales closed. Month over month, sales were down 2.8 percent, despite a 5 percent decline in median prices. In Broward County, condo sales slid to 828, down 4 percent from September of last year.
Existing single-family home sales continued their descent in September, falling 6 percent year over year in Miami-Dade, with 582 sales. In Broward, year-over-year single family sales dropped 16 percent to 673.
Nationally, the housing market improved in September, with existing sales increasing 10 percent from August.
Prices are still falling in many sectors of the housing market, but ST Residential CEO Wade Hundley said brand new condos have avoided that fate this year, even posting increases.
“Relative to all the other markets in the U.S., Miami is doing well,” Hundley said. “We’ve seen prices increase about 10 to 15 percent since the beginning of the year.”
