South Florida’s housing market continues to inch higher on a national index released by mortgage company Freddie Mac.

The tri-county region of Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties scored 83.7 in July on Freddie’s Multi-Indicator Market Index, up 14 percent from a year ago.

The index measures housing markets across the country by tracking home loan applications, affordability, mortgage loan delinquencies and employment. A composite score of at least 80 is considered favorable or stable. A perfect score is 100.

Locked out of boom, buyers hunt for new housing hot spots

Home prices may be rising too fast

South Florida home prices posted steady gains in the second quarter, but slower growth would be better for the housing market long term, according to a new report.

The median price for single-family homes in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties was $289,900, up 7.4 percent from the second quarter of 2014, the National Association of Realtors said Tuesday.

The median for condominiums rose 7.1 percent to $156,300. The median means half sold for more and half for less.

Lack of land hampers housing starts

Broward County housing starts increased in the second quarter, though home construction remains at low levels because of a lack of buildable land.

Builders started 368 units in Broward from April through June, up 19 percent from a year earlier, the Metrostudy research firm said Wednesday. The annual “starts pace” — a tally of housing starts from the past four consecutive quarters -— was at 1,229 units, a 14 percent increase from the prior year.

Palm Beach County homebuilding was more active in the second quarter, though starts dropped 3 percent, to 618 from 636 a year ago, Metrostudy said. Annual starts also decreased to 2,006, down 11 percent.
