 If you’re like most realtors I know, you are excited about this new year. Analysts are predicting a healthy one for the real estate industry and the numbers released from REALTORS® on December confirms the positive outlook.  According to December’s numbers on Florida, properties are staying on the market for less time, the median sales prices are up, and closed sales had less short sales and cash-only sales.  At this point, with inventories still relatively tight, it seems the market continues to be a seller’s market for single family homes - at least in the Coral Gables homes for sale market. December’s numbers do show a more balanced market when it comes to townhouses and condos. Get more details on Florida, and links to the national housing market.
