South Florida housing still healthy, but challenges remain, reports say

Low unemployment and an increase in home loan applications are keeping South Florida’s housing market stable, according to a report Wednesday from mortgage company Freddie Mac.

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

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.
