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.
