South Florida Real Estate Market Report - 3rd Quarter 2021

South Florida 3rd Quarter Real Estate Market Report

How's the South Florida real estate market?

The Recipe for our 3rd Quarter 2021 Florida Housing Market

Here’s the Recipe for Our 3rd Quarter 2021 Florida Housing Market: Take one large housing-supply shortage; add a global pandemic, economic shutdown, and supply chain shortages; mix in rapid population growth, and you will yield today’s residential real estate market.

At a national level, we’re seeing record gaps in housing supply and demand. The US Census reveals 12.3 million households were established between January 2012 and June 2021. Compare this to the 7 million new single-family homes constructed during that time.

Florida Realtors reports a robust pace and high absorption rate in the Q3 market. This has resulted in higher median prices, an increase of new listings, and a rise in all-cash sales. These trends are predicted to continue into Q4 and onward to 2022.

Floridians anxiously await the return of our northern neighbors. “Snowbirds” will arrive in seasonal mass migration, due to relaxed travel restrictions contingent upon vaccination status. International travelers may set their sights on the Sunshine State. Many have funds ready to invest in real estate. They will quickly learn the lack of single-family home inventory has created a condominium buying frenzy in many areas.

Speaking of buyers, millennials are no longer the generation of renters. Now in their 30s and early 40s, this generation adds fuel to the buyer’s fire, as they inundate entry-level inventory and compete with all-cash investors.

New-home construction could save the low housing supply woes. The reality is severe labor shortages, coupled with supply chain disruptions, make material costs unstable and expensive. With elevated land prices, it’s nearly impossible to produce affordable new homes. Despite the challenges, builders seem to hold power in today’s market. Business Insider said it best: “It’s not a buyer’s or a seller’s market in housing: it’s a builder’s market.”

The positive factors of residential real estate remain consistent from last quarter. Accessibility and affordability lead the way due to low mortgage interest rates. Supply and demand trends keep the thought of a looming “housing bubble” at bay.

Florida is a microcosm of US trends, continuously in the top ten fastest-growing states. The economic outlook of Florida remains strong, with unemployment below the national average. Tourism has almost returned to 2019 pre-pandemic levels. A fair climate, affordability, and eased restrictions continue to attract visitors.

Navigating South Florida’s current housing market requires both skill and strategy. If you’re in the market to buy or sell, partnering with a seasoned agent has exponential benefits. Visit to get started.

I'd go so far as to call this one a "can't-miss" piece of writing! Great work. I adore it, and the advice is quite helpful.
