Broward County $1 Million-and-Up Home Sale Surge Double Digits

MIAMI — Broward County total $1 million-and-up home sales increased year-over-year, according to November 2023 statistics released by the MIAMI Association of Realtors (MIAMI) and the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system.


Broward total $1 million-and-up home transactions increased 17% year-over-year to 168 sales in November 2023.


“Fort Lauderdale and Broward County luxury real estate sales continue to surge late in the year,” Broward-MIAMI President Alfredo Pujol said. “Nicknamed the Venice of America for its unique inland waterways, the greater Fort Lauderdale area remains in high demand. Inventory is coming off all-time lows, which is great news as we head into the spring homebuying season.”


Southeast Florida Home Sales Forecasted to Expand by 7% Year-over-Year by End of 2024

MIAMI REALTORS® Chief Economist Gay Cororaton forecasts mortgage rates to fall to 5.25% by the end of 2024 given the overall effect of the Fed’s planned cumulative rate cut of 0.75% and cooling inflation. Mortgage rates hit a 23-year high of 7.8% in October 2023, impacting November 2023 sales numbers across the nation.


“Southeast Florida’s home sales could expand by about 7% year-over-year by the end of 2024 while prices will continue to appreciate at a modest pace of 5%,” Cororaton said. “In the low to mid-price segment of the market, the lower mortgage rates will drive up demand from first-time buyers and renter households. In the high-price and luxury segment, the wealth effect from rising stock prices, a pickup in economic growth in 2024, and sustained migration of high-income households into Southeast Florida will push up demand.”


Total Broward sales decreased 4.7% in November 2023, from 1,920 to 1,830, due to elevated mortgage rates and low inventory in key price points. November home transactions came to terms in October, which saw rates peak at 7.8%. The statistics don’t include South Florida’s robust developer new construction market and volume.


Broward single-family home sales decreased 5.7% year-over-year, from 871 in November 2022 to 821 in November 2023. Broward single-family home sales still has a lack of inventory in key price points as elevated mortgage rates have impacted buyers looking to finance.


Broward existing condo sales decreased 3.8% year-over-year, from 1,049 in November 2022 to 1,009 in November 2023. The condo market has been more impacted by lack of inventory at key price points and elevated mortgage rates.


Total Broward County New Listings Increase

Cash buyers are not deterred by rising rates.

Cash sales accounted for 52.9% of all Broward existing condo sales and 28% of single-family transactions.
