Florida Housing Market Update: August 2023

It’s important to have market updates that are local to your area. The latest home resale market statistics from Florida Realtors was just published. I’ve put together an overview of the most important points to know:

  • The amount of closed sales of existing single family homes was down by 8% compared to last year.
  • The amount of closed sales of townhomes/condos was down 7% compared to last year.
  • The median price of single family homes was up 2% compared to last year.
  • The median price of townhomes/condos was up 6% compared to last year.
  • Mortgage interest rates continue to be the most dominant factor in sales trends here in Florida as well as the rest of the U.S., so the continued year-over-year declines we’re seeing in closed sales are not surprising.
  • These elevated levels of home prices continue to offset the impact of lower levels of sales when it comes to dollar volume, which is calculated as the total combined same value of all home transactions closing each month.

The Importance of Hometown Heroes

A study was recently done that showed the importance of the ‘hometown heroes’ program. According to a report from Redfin, the average U.S. teacher can afford just 12% of homes for sale within commuting distance of their school. That’s down from 17% last summer and 30% in 2019.

In Florida, the Hometown Heroes program – strongly backed by Florida Realtors® – aimed to help teachers and other lower-paying yet vital metro jobs, such as nurses, firefighters, first responders and more. This program provides down payment and closing cost assistance to first-time, income-qualified homebuyers so they can purchase a primary residence in the community in which they work and serve. The Florida Hometown Heroes Loan Program also offers a competitive first mortgage interest rate and additional special benefits to those who have served and continue to serve their country. The program now serves a wider audience after 2023 legislative changes.

Redfin’s study appears to reinforce the need for workforce housing programs in Florida and the nation.

I offer a 20% rebate on commission for teachers and first responders. If you’ve recently thought about buying, let me know help you through the process and get the most for your money.
