Official: December 2019 Florida Housing (Video & PDF)

December 2019 Florida Housing Report

Data released 1/22/2020

The official December 2019 Florida Housing Report was released reflecting Florida as a state continual increase in closed sales and a rise in median home prices (96th straight month) over last year’s performance.

The numbers reflect bold growth, but keep in that last year at this time interest rates were higher and the government was facing an impending shut down. and there was definitely a lull (down about -10.0%) in the real estate market while the country sat in uncertainty. We’re still optimistic about the numbers and the traffic through the counties driving sales.

Not to sound like a broken record, however, the inventory levels are also driving and holding us back all in the same. A skilled professional will be able to navigate these conditions for their buyers to get a great deal as well as for the sellers who are on the fence. Great deals can still be made if you have the right professional guide.
