Florida Sales up 4.2% year-to-year, prices up 3.4% in August

Florida's housing market saw higher median prices and a rising inventory in August, according to the latest housing data released by Florida Realtors®.

Closed Sales of single-family homes statewide totaled 21,742 last month, up 4.9% over the August 2013 figure.

"For several months now, stability and consistency are key trends we're seeing in Florida's housing market, as the state's jobs outlook remains steady and the economy continues to grow," says 2014 Florida Realtors President Sherri Meadows, CEO (and team leader, Keller Williams, with market centers in Gainesville, Ocala and The Villages). "The statewide inventory (active listings) for single-family homes last month rose 13% year-over-year, while the townhouse-condo inventory of active listings rose 8.9%."

That is certainly good to hear, but I've been guessing that something of the likes is happening. The condo I live in ( has gotten more and more residents over the last few months. It's a nice change!
