"At the beginning of June, Realtors in the Florida Keys were banking on something they called “pent up demand.” Sales were down that month by more than 20% compared to 2019 numbers.
A month later, sales exploded.
In Monroe County, sales of residential properties jumped 50% over 2019 numbers. In 2019, 191 homes sold. In 2020, the number soared to 286. In terms of dollar volume for the entire Florida Keys, that represents $209 million in sales, an increase of $72 million just for the month of July 2020 over July 2019."
