  • 10:28 AM » DataQuick: September Miami Home Sales Report
    Published Fri, Nov 02 2012 10:28 AM by DataQuick
    Miami Region September Home Sales November 1, 2012 Miami-area home sales rose to the highest level for a September in six years as a big gain in the number of deals over $300,000 compensated for a decline in activity in the lower price ranges. The median sale price rose above a year earlier for the ninth consecutive month, a real estate information service reported. In September, 8,969 new and resale houses and condos closed escrow in the metro area encompassing Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Broward counties. That was down 10.9 percent from the prior month and up 4.9 percent from a year earlier, according to San Diego-based DataQuick. The firm tracks real estate trends nationally via public property records. Typically Miami-area sales dip between August and September, with that decline averaging 10.3 percent since 1997, when DataQuick's complete Miami-area statistics begin. Sales have risen year-over-year for five consecutive months. Between January and September this year, the region's home sales totaled 83,872, up 2.7 percent from the same period last year. Sales of newly built homes during the first nine months of this year fell 7.0 percent from the same period last year, while they inched up 0.2 percent for resale condos and increased 6.8 percent for resale houses. Total sales for the month of September fell 14.7 percent short of the average number of sales for that month since 1997. The number of existing (not new) houses and condos that closed escrow in September was 1.9 percent below the historical average for the month, though condo resales were 21.2 percent above average. New-home sales fell nearly 74 percent short of the September average. When viewed by price segment, the Miami area's September sales dropped 14 percent year-over-year for homes priced below $100,000, and dipped 2.5 percent for homes below $200,000. Sales between $200,000 and $600,000 posted a nearly 19 percent annual gain in September, while the number of homes that sold above $800...
