Florida Real Estate Headed Back to Normal?
According to the latest numbers by Florida Realtors, it looks as if Florida finishes out the second quarter with a glimpse of normal in its future. First and foremost, single-family inventory is on the rise in June. New listings increased by 22%. We are by no means out of the woods yet but certainly headed in the right direction.
A Rise in All-Cash Sales
All-cash sales are on the rise, with 31% of all sales in June 2021 being cash. There are two reasons for this increase. The first is that a higher percentage of sales were luxury homes, and the second is a higher level of investor activity in homes in the mid to low price range.
