The Real Estate Market Along Florida's East Coast
Market conditions along the Florida East Coast continued to strengthen in October, with a rebound in sales volume and price gains throughout most neighborhoods. The strong economic conditions, highlighted by a low unemployment rate of 4.7%, and lifestyle continued to attract new residents to the region, adding to the demand for homes. The recovering tourism market, particularly from international travelers, will improve economic conditions and potentially return a missing demand segment to the market.

While closed sales fell by 13% compared with last year, sales velocity last fall was influenced by pandemic-related purchases and migration.

The Real Estate Market Along Florida's East Coast
The housing market has strengthened through late summer with buyers matching and exceeding the number of sellers in most neighborhoods and price ranges.
The typical seasonal pattern of moderating sales volume and pricing took hold in August, and will likely continue through the end of the year. The return of seasonal trends underscores a shift towards a normalized housing market from pandemic driven extremes.
The regional economy continued to expand, albeit at a muted pace given the rise of the COVID-19 delta variant. Although some tourism activity was held in check, the regional unemployment rate improved to 4.5%, quickly approaching the pre-pandemic level.
As the summer ends, sales of single family homes usually slow down. This was also the case with home sales this August, which totalled 10,821 homes. That's a 7% decrease compared with July. However, the winter season also brings to Florida tourists and residents from the North ...
