Miami home sales in June set 10-year record - Median price for homes grew almost 15% in June, year-over-year, to $280,000
Home sales in Miami scored a small victory last month, setting a new volume record for the past 10 years. June saw a total of 1,390 homes sold in the Miami market, an increase of 8.6 percent year-over year, and an increase of 80 homes from the previous record that was set in June 2005. The Miami Association of Realtors said in a release that this was the highest amount of homes sold in a single month in Miami’s history. So far this year, 7,100 single-family homes have been sold. The association said at this pace, the metropolitan area will also break its annual record of 13,521 sales that was set last year. The median price for homes grew almost 15 percent in June, compared to the same month last year. It now stands at $280,000, up from $243,700.
Despite this increase in sales activity, recent analyses have hinted at a slowdown in the market. Prices have ballooned due to consistent demand and a shrinking supply of houses for sale. On the flip side, Miami’s supply of condos has dramatically increased and the volume of sales has begun to ebb.
