South Florida's Rising Rents and Cost of Living

South Florida’s rental market has long been less-than-ideal for non-homeowners.

Landlords operated happily within the free market, raising their rates and easily finding plenty of takers ready to bask in the temperate weather and vibrant culture that our region offers. Those whose bank accounts couldn’t keep up were hastily left behind.

The past year seems to have accelerated the trend even more as too few new apartments have been built, and affordable housing has become even more scarce. Renters seemingly have little to no control of the market, making Florida one of the worst locations in the country to rent in. This reality has re-started the conversation over rent control—a proposal that has always failed in the past; but with examples set

How's the South Florida real estate market?

Reflection...  Looking back and looking ahead

To sum up Florida’s real estate market for the first half of 2021, one word comes to mind: unexpected. Florida has long enjoyed an influx of residents migrating from across the country, and around the world, to call the Sunshine State home. With remote work becoming a permanent option, over 900 people per day are moving to Florida, according to the Palm Beach County Business Development Board. Reasons for this explosive growth in Florida can point to fair weather, a business-friendly climate, and the lack of state income and estate tax.

Low-interest rates continue to fuel affordability and drive high absorption

Though typically not a busy time in the South Florida market, the 2021 summer season has kept the momentum going from the beginning of this year. In fact, national statistics stemming from the week leading up to the 4th of July indicate that housing is still a hot commodity across the nation!

However, there were signs indicating some relief may be within sight, though buyers shouldn’t celebrate quite yet, as the data discrepancies could be attributed to the lead up to the holiday weekend.

Overall, the data demonstrates more of the same—fewer new listings, and historically high home price growth. Both of these aspects mean a tough environment for buyers without the ability to offer top dollar or make a quick purchase decision. However, there are

There's No Housing Bubble

As soon as housing prices seem to rise, two questions spring to mind—and into headlines:

“What’s MY home worth?”, followed immediately by “when will THIS housing bubble pop?”

With current median selling prices up nearly $35,000 compared to the same period last year, it’s the latter (along with still-fresh memories of last decade) that have some buyers waiting on the sidelines. However, while experts have no idea how far prices will run, they can seemingly agree on one thing: we aren’t actually in a bubble.

And those that wait will likely regret it.

This Is A Different Housing Market

Take it from none other than a Morgan Stanley strategist who shared in a note to clients that the bank had a “strong conviction that we are not experiencing

South Florida's Real Estate Market in 2021

It will take time for South Florida to fully process the long-reaching changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the more immediate effects, however, has been a sharp increase in home prices—thanks in combination to federal efforts consisting of low borrowing rates, and a local lack of inventory.

Across the South Florida region, prices climbed over the course of 2020. Even now, nearly 12 months since the sweeping lockdowns that slammed the country, the trend has continued, pushing prices past previous historic highs.

This isn’t unexpected, of course. The simple laws of supply and demand coupled with the typical buying frenzy that accompanies drops in interest rates are anything but unpredictable. So too is the fear of missing out on

How's the South Florida real estate market?

As we enter 2021, we’re taking a moment to reflect on a quarter that closed out one of the most unique years of our lives.

Last year taught us that home is so much more than the place where you sleep at night. As the lines in our lives began to blur, so did the way we experienced home. A formal dining table that was once merely for show moonlighted as our childrens’ desks as they navigated a new world of virtual learning. Kitchens previously used for an occasional dinner were enhanced with new gadgets and recipe books, as millions of US residents tried their hands at bread-making, cocktail-mixing, and getting that restaurant-worthy recipe “just right”.

How's the South Florida real estate market?

The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the way we live, work, socialize, and shop, but Florida real estate remains resilient as buyers look for more space and good deals. While Q3 is typically a slower market, the desire for more space and the pause in closing activity in April caused pent-up demand. In higher price ranges, including the ultra-luxury sector, little inventory has been left on the table. Across the state, months of single-family-home inventory, based on closed sales, was down year-over-year to 36.1% in Palm Beach County.  Think about that for a minute; there are 36% fewer homes available on the market in 2020 than there were one year ago in 2019.

Thinking of selling your home and wondering what it’s worth?  You may want to be careful about the home value estimates you see online because many are either far above or far below the true market value. 

Boca Raton home sellers who set their expectations on inaccurately overestimated home values may fall victim to overpricing their homes for sale which will ultimately lead to frustration because they don't sell.  When a home is overpriced, it will languish on the market for months, causing multiple price reductions as they "chase the market" and most likely result in a lower sale price than if they had priced it right from the beginning.
