“Buyers are taking advantage of mortgage rates that are near historic lows” said Jennifer McCoy with RE/MAX Elite’s McCoy-Freeman Group.  “Cash buyers accounted for over half of all sales here in June” says McCoy. “If a property is priced fair, it will usually sell quick.”

The statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes last month was $185,000, up 5.2 percent from the previous year, according to data from Florida Realtors Industry Data and Analysis (IDA) department in partnership with local Realtor boards/associations.

The statewide median price for townhouse-condo properties in June was $141,000, up 8.5 percent over the year-ago figure. The median is the midpoint; half the homes sold for more, half for less.

Florida Realtors Chief Economist Dr. John Tuccillo said, “June was a very strong month for both the single-family and the townhouse and condo markets in Florida, and we are very encouraged by the data. But a look at one month alone does not ever truly describe the market. So when the strong June report is balanced by a somewhat weaker May, the picture of a market settling-in emerges.

“We are generally seeing slower increases in both sales and prices, and a rising level of inventories. All of this points to a continued steady, manageable growth in the Florida housing market.”
