Florida’s existing home and existing condo sales rose in March, according to the latest housing data released by Florida Realtors(R). Existing home sales increased 12 percent last month with a total of 18,522 homes sold statewide compared to 16,540 homes sold in March 2010, according to Florida Realtors. Statewide sales of existing condos last month rose 24 percent compared to the year-ago sales figure.
Seventeen of Florida’s metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) reported higher existing home and existing condo sales in March; 17 MSAs also had higher condo sales. It’s the fourth consecutive month that Florida Realtors has reported higher year-over-year existing home and existing condo sales statewide.
“A variety of housing opportunities is available at attractive prices across the state, while mortgage interest rates remain historically low,” said 2011 Florida Realtors(R) President Patricia Fitzgerald, manager/broker-associate with Illustrated Properties in Hobe Sound and Mariner Sands Country Club in Stuart. “Favorable conditions like these spark the interest of buyers – who should consult a local Realtor to find out more about their local markets.”
