Comparing August 2020 to August 2019:

 

In the Florida Keys we saw a strong comeback in the real estate market.  We are seeing our prediction of pent up buyer demand coming true. 

Throughout the Keys the number of sold residential properties was 281 compared to 181 last year.  The Average sale price was up $226,944 year over year and we have 61 new listings this August compared to August 2019 for a total of 303 new listings. 

 

Interest rates continue to be at or around record lows which is fueling buyer’s purchase power.  With a healthy balance of supply and demand and a Florida Keys lifestyle like no place on earth, we see continued upward pressure on the real estate market.
