South Florida continues to see higher home-price increases than most of the rest of the country, according to a leading indicator released Tuesday.
Prices in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties rose 7.4 percent in August compared with August 2014, figures from the Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller index show. It was the region’s 18th consecutive increase.
The index tracks prices in 20 major metro areas nationwide. Denver and San Francisco each had 10.7 percent annual increases in August.
