South Florida’s home prices rising more slowly
House prices keep climbing in South Florida, though the region is losing ground to other areas nationwide, a new report shows.
Prices in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties rose 7.3 percent in July from a year ago, the 17th consecutive increase, according to the Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller home price index.
South Florida has ranked among the top three metro areas for price gains and even led the nation last summer. But San Francisco (10.4 percent), Denver (10.3), Dallas (8.7) and Portland (8.5) moved past the tri-county area in the latest survey.
