ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 22, 2017 /360WiseNews/ — Florida’s housing market reported more closed sales, higher median prices, increased pending sales and more new listings in January, according to the latest housing data released by Florida Realtors®. Sales of single-family homes statewide totaled 16,779 last month, up 5.2 percent from January 2016.

Florida’s housing market continues to show positive momentum,” said 2017 Florida Realtors President Maria Wells, broker-owner with Lifestyle Realty Group in Stuart. “While existing inventory remains tight, Realtors® across the state are reporting interest from both buyers and sellers – and with interest rates expected to rise over the next few months, now is certainly a good time to take action. On the buyer front, new pending sales for existing single family homes in January increased 3.8 percent year-over-year; pending sales for townhouse-condo units increased 6.5 percent. On the sellers’ side, new listings for single-family homes rose 7.6 percent year-over-year, while new townhouse-condo listings ticked up 0.9 percent.

“When market conditions are tight, consumers can get ahead by working with a Realtor who’s an expert in the local area,” Wells said. “A Realtor will have the knowledge needed to help both buyers and sellers through the complex homebuying process.” Keep Reading
