Florida Housing Stats
Florida has a population of 21.5 million people, according to the US Census estimates. Florida is one of several state that has a housing shortage of homes on the market vs demand. The supply shortfall is driving up prices and causing larger cities to become less affordable as people relocate seeking jobs and work.
In 2019, Florida saw 293,325 closed home sales, a 5.6% increase year over year. The median sale price was $264,500, a 3.9% increase of the previous year, with 96.5% of the median percent of the original sale price paid. Meaning, nearly all homes sold for very close to the original list price without much discounting needed to close the sale. The 3.9% increase in prices is about 1.6% over officially stated inflation numbers. This is down a bit from a very strong run in 2014-2018 in which average home sales prices rose between 5.6 and 7.9% per annum.
For 2019 an average of 3.3 months of inventory was on the market, which indicates a very tight housing market. A “balanced” housing market is considered such with 6 months of inventory on the market. With a median time to contract at 42 days, we see several other metrics including time to sale of 84 days, that are a reversal of trend from 2018 and previous years. Meaning the Florida housing market was still hot but started to cool coming in early 2020. We can’t predict what current unforeseen events may hold, but a further softening of the Florida market through much of 2020 seems possible.
