Investors fuel home sales surge across S. Florida,

By Paul Owers February 23, 2011 02:30 PM

forsalesign.jpg Home sales rose sharply in January across Palm Beach and Broward counties, the Florida Realtors said Wednesday. Palm Beach County had 745 existing homes trade hands, up 36 percent from a year ago. Broward sales increased 18 percent to 813. Existing condo sales in both counties also were robust. Home sales surged across Florida and the nation. Many of the sales are cash deals from investors. Nationally, the share of first-time buyers in January slipped to 29 percent, down from 40 percent a year ago. œIncreases in all-cash transactions, the investor market share and distressed home sales all go hand-in-hand, Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors, said in a statement. œWith tight credit standards, it™s not surprising to see so much activity where cash is king and investors are taking advantage of conditions to purchase undervalued homes. While sales were strong, prices were down. Broward™s median home price in January was $165,100, off 5 percent from a year ago. Palm Beach County™s median fell 19 percent to $192,800. Meanwhile, January was the first month featuring a change in how Broward reports sales and prices to the Florida Realtors. The Realtor Association of Greater Fort Lauderdale said the January figures now include sales and prices from three other local associations doing business in Broward. These groups haven™t provided their Broward statistics to the state Realtors’ board until now, said Richard Barkett, chief executive of the Fort Lauderdale association. Barkett said his trade group will factor in sales and prices of these other transactions for each month of 2010 so that the 2011 comparisons will be accurate.
